361,337 transactions were recorded on the Bitcoin blockchain yesterday. Regarding growth in actual usage of the blockchain for transactions, observe that over the past 7 days daily transactions have jumped by about 3.63%, though it should be noted this past week the trend should be described as not clear — at least on a two-week basis. Bitcoin may end up functioning as a way to acquire goods or services if it does regularly increase the number of daily transactions occurring on its chain. In terms of transaction fees, the average cost for sending Bitcoin yesterday ended up being approximately $1.75 US dollars. Transaction fees have been declining by approximately 26.3% per week, while the average transaction size is up 7.06% in US dollars. In terms of how much computing power Bitcoin is using, over the past 30 days its hash rate has continued to bounce around , ultimately rising daily by approximately 0.25%. A trend in hash rate that is unclear suggests that mining is becoming harder to interpret, and that the chain is thus being a point to bear in mind. This may not help Bitcoin draw more capital to its chain.
