Steem Total Value Powered Up - $48 million - July 23, 2021

in #steem6 months ago

This is next in my series of posts reviewing the amount and value of powered up STEEM on the Steem blockchain. For previous posts, see the end of this entry.

Noteworthy in recent weeks, the number of powered-up STEEM tokens has reached new highs (since I began tracking in April) for the last 9 consecutive days. The number, percent, and modeled value have all squeaked up a little since last week's post. The value has also bounced off of late-June lows and continues holding its own or gaining ground against other cryptocurrencies that I'm tracking.

Here are the numbers as of a few minutes ago.

Total value locked in powered-up STEEM (USD): $48,555,903.17
STEEM market cap $145,258,110.833

Like I always say, this is my favorite graph. At this moment, this value is above 1/3 of Steem's total market cap. Let's see if it manages to hold the line in coming weeks.

This week the numbers have been stable.
I have a curiosity which is:
VESTED STEEM? since I always see it here


And I have never understood how they do those calculations to determine our steempower.

It's constantly changing. In short, you multiply your number of MVESTS by the current value of "STEEM PER MVEST" (which you can get from


To get from VESTS to MVESTS in your wallet, you divide by a million.

The number of SP that you see in your screen cap from steemblockexplorer also includes delegations, but you can get the numbers without delegations from


It's not exactly right, but for a quick approximation in your head you can divide VESTS by 2, then shift the decimal point 3 places to the left or divide MVESTS by 2 and shift the decimal three places to the right. As time goes on, that estimate will get less and less accurate, though.

Thank you very much for the explanation, I already understood more or less.

I believe the sight of the new highs is a foreshadow of the great impending growth of Steem. Great write-up and analysis.
