Details

  • Active Addresses (Received) is the sum count of unique addresses that where the receiving end of a ledger change
  • For this unadjusted version of the metric, all ledger change scenarios are considered.
  • Such ledger changes can include mining, staking, transacting, account creation, etc..
  • If an address was active multiple times as recipient during that interval, it is counted only once.
  • For ETH, miners receiving fees from the original sender of a failed transaction are counted as active receiving addresses.

Asset-Specific Details

This metric is not available for assets that have full privacy, like Monero, Grin. For assets that have opt-in privacy features, like ZCash, it only takes the non-private activities into account.

Examples

In a given day:
  • Address A mines 10 coins
    • A was recipient, no sender
  • Address B sends 2 coins to each C and D
    • C and D were recipients, B was sender
  • Address D delegates 20 coins to E
    • D is the sender, E is recipient
  • Address A burns 1 coin
    • A is the sender, no recipient
  • Address F votes on a protocol change
    • F is the sender/initiator
We would count as active recipients: A, C, D and E. The value of the metric would therefore be: 4.
