Skype: I didn't check...


Reddit Last two months -

Ethereum                                           BitShares
187 Articles (by +-70 people)              47 Articles
17 upvotes avg                                   5 upvotes avg.
6.5 comments avg.                             4.5 comments avg.

Upvotes and readers look good (Becoming a reader takes a second and no email even required.) but apparently on Reddit comments are key and we are not that far behind

'Comments are key. They are arguably the most important part of the site. Just because something has been upvoted does not necessarily mean it's legitimate.'

Facebook - A Facebook like is quite passive and is not indicative of a community. We could boost our numbers just by making a post on our forum asking people to like our Facebook page.

Website - Their website is ranked higher, but their website and forums are combined. If you added the traffic our forum gets to our website it would probably be a much closer race.

Their 'bounce rate' is 70% on
the percentage of visitors who enter the site and "bounce" (leave the site) rather than continue viewing other pages within the same site.

Our bounce rate is half that - 35% (On both of our sites) This means when people are directed there they are more interested imo.

Our daily page views per visitor on both sites is +-3, there's is 2.


Whether you count someone as being part of our community once they've made a post (3000) or making at least 10 posts (800)

Ethereum only has 725 who have made a post, and 85 who have made 10 posts on their forum. Even if you added people who had made a Reddit post and counted them as unique people (not the same person already registered on their forum) it would only add a few hundred people at most in the first and handful of people in the second category. (I'd imagine the same is true of skype.)

Personally I think whatever measure you want to use to define a community member BitShares has to be twice as big but probably closer to 3X IMO.

Ethereum is doing a better job at marketing and getting an audience, but we are doing a much better job of turning our audience into part of the BitShares community.

The solution is to get a bigger audience  :P Luckily marketing seems to be improving lately and also Toast and others have come together to create task forces and make more of an effort to get out there on other platforms & forums.  (I would suggest as others have of making more of an effort on Reddit in particular.)

The release of BitShares XT will also be a huge boost.

Wow.  Great analysis.  +5%  I'm glad to see that my empirical observations of this stuff are somewhat off. :)
I speak for myself and only myself.

The majority look at a chart and concentrate on the technical indicators, with very few understanding the truth, and the truth is the driving force alt coins affecting supply and demand.
