We provide daily cryptocurrency data (transaction count, on-chain transaction volume, value of created coins, price, market cap, and exchange volume) in CSV format. The data sample stretches back to December 2013. We explain the column titles and some shortcomings here.
Data sources and methodology
Daily on-chain transaction volume is calculated as the sum of all transaction outputs belonging to the blocks mined on the given day. “Change” outputs are not included. Estimation difficulties remain and the measure is imprecise. We discuss this here. Methodology behind adjusted transaction volume figures is described in this post.
Transaction count figure doesn’t include coinbase and coinstake transactions.
Active addresses is the number of unique sending and receiving addresses participating in transactions on the given day.
Payment count for UTXO coins is defined as sum of outputs’ count minus one for each transaction. We assume that transaction with N outputs pays to N – 1 addresses and the last N-th output is change. Transactions with only one output do not contribute to payment count, as they are likely to be a self-churn.
Payment count for smart contract assets such as ETH or LSK is calculated as the amount of transfer transactions (i.e. contract creation, invocation, destruction transactions are not included).
NEO and GAS transaction count figures reflect the amount of transactions that have at least one output of given asset type. If transaction sends both NEO and GAS, it will be included in transaction count for both assets. Fees figure is denominated in GAS and calculated by summing the fees of all transactions that have at least one output of a given asset type.
Ripple data includes only transactions of Payment type that transfer XRP tokens.
Stellar transaction volume data covers only operations of Payment and CreateAccount types that transfer XLM tokens. Transaction count is the number of transactions that include at least one operation of aforementioned types. Lumens inflation data is currently unavailable.
XEM data includes only transactions of “Transfer” type.
Zcash figures for on-chain volume and transaction count reflect data collected for transparent transactions only. In the last month, 9.1% (14/06/18) of ZEC transactions were shielded, and these are excluded from the analysis due to their private nature. Thus transaction volume figures in reality are higher than the estimate presented here, and NVT and exchange to transaction value lower. Data on shielded and transparent transactions can be found here and here.
Monero transaction volume is impossible to calculate due to RingCT which hides transaction amounts.
EOS transaction volume figure includes only transactions of transfer type. Median transaction value for EOS is actually median transfer value (currently, most transactions in EOS do not transfer EOS token).
WAVES transaction volume figure includes only transactions of transfer and mass transfer types. Median transaction value for WAVES is actually median value of WAVES token transfer.
