🚀 SteemMonsters Statistics & Big Datas 🚀

Thanks to ALL of you, Steemmonsters (aka Splinterlands) is growing, it does not care about bear/bull markets and is ready for the next Bull Run !

Résultat de recherche d'images pour "steem monsters"

SteemMonsters reached 247k visits in July 2019!

There is an important difference between total visitors to a site and unique ones. In this case the 247k include the multiple times a person visited the website.

Therefore, as a good Steemian you probably connect everyday which will make you count for a total of 30 visits.

Therefore, how many “unique users” does SteemMonsters has?

This is a very important question that I will try to answer later on. According to the Beta Analysis from the website I use to compile these datas, it is c.30,6k in July (compared to an average of c.20k over the past 18 months) !

One quick word about the Methodology

  • Datas can come from multiple sources listed in the end of this post
  • These sources get their raw datas from companies working with them and sharing their datas in order to get access to competitor’s ones, browsers add-ons, in-app softwares which allow the Big Data to have a very large panel of users (north of 20mn) in order to statistically have the number of users/visits…
  • I use these raw datas to make excels tables, graphs…

I] Traffic

Daily SteemMonsters Traffic

SteemMonsters Daily Traffic kept on improving since the launch to reach close to 10k daily visits in July 2019.

If we compare to Steemit.com, we can see that there is a lower % of mobile traffic, let’s hope the future app will fix these issues.

Steemmonsters website is ranked 133,146 worldwide.

We can also see that the rank is improving daily.

Google Trends

Google Trend is an Indice based on 100, which means that 100 represents the week when most people searched for “Steem monsters and steemmonsters” on Google.

Google Trends are still very low but there is hope as Bitcoin Google Trend is increasing slowly again, maybe more crypto users joining decentralized platforms?

Bitcoin Google Trend Graph

SteemMonsters Traffic share by country

In the Top 5, the strongest traffic increase came from Germany with +154% visits!

Mobile Traffic is low compared as it represents only 21.19% of the total

78.81% of players on Desktop, probably as it is more convenient.

Be Careful with the Number of Visits

Also, remember that if you connect from a different device (home/work computer, mobile phone, tablet) you will count as a “new visitor” on each of these devices.

So as an example, let’s say you connected at home, at work and in the subway. You would represent 3 visits out of these 1mn+ Daily Visits.

II] Marketing Mix

Organic Search is once again improving and represents 67,3% of the incoming Traffic.

Organic search is when people research on Google. As the number of quality bloggers on Steemit increase, our content has a higher probability of being listed in Google’s Top results.

Different Channels:

Direct: When you type in you Web browser www.steemit.com
Mail: When you connect to steemit.com through an e-mail link
Referrals: When you connect to steemit.com through a link found on another website (github…)
Social: When you connect to Steemit through a Facebook, Twitter, Instagram… page or link
Organic Search: When you type a search term like “Crypto” on Google and you click on one of the following steemit link proposed to you

Traffic Share Evolution since inception of this analysis

You can see the continous improvment of the direct line. This is showing active players and commited ones. You can interpret this growth as the ability for @steemmonsters to grow its number of players and keep them addicted to the game. Congrats !

As a player myself, I can understand why people stick around :D.

Referring Social Pages

Youtube represented 53,4% of all the social platform incoming traffic. Reddit is also a strong source of new visits on the Steemit Platform.

5 most searched terms on Google that lead to Steemmonsters.com

To be honest, I don’t really get how some of these requests lead you to Steem but… it does.

What are Steemians main interests?

Gender Demographics

Age Distribution

III] Steemit website metrics

You feel a bit confused about these 3 metrics? Let me explain.

  • Bounce Rate is the % of people that leave the Website after just navigating on a single Webpage. The lower, the Better
  • Daily Pageviews per Visitor is the average number of pages a visitor opens. The Higher, the Better
  • Daily Time on Site is the full time a visitor spend on the website before closing the internet Webpage. The Higher the Better

Bounce rate is particularly low which is probably linked to the fact that most traffic is direct, meaning loyal users mak the biggest chunk of the traffic and they come to do their daily quest / tournament.

My assumptions for July 2019

  • Total visits to SteemMonsters.com: 247k
  • Assumption of Total unique visitors in July: 25-30k
  • Total Daily visitors: 7.5-10k
  • Assumption of Total Daily Unique visitors: 4-6k

This is a collective achievement and I would like to congratulate all of us! We need to continue helping @yabapmatt to grow this platform

This monthly report makes me very optimistic about @steemmonsters future !

CryptoMania – A Provably Fair EOS-based Slot Game (Comprehensive Review)

Unless you have been missing out on the actions. EOS-based games and casinos are the new rages in town.

Lots of fun and earning opportunities have been created in what is now becoming the mania of the current crypto phase.

If you are a lover of decentralized gaming applications and would really want to maximize your fun and earning capabilities. Here is the secret… You need to join in the rush during the launching period or earlier days of a Dapp in this category.

Meanwhile, maybe you have missed out on a few ones in the past and want to bury such misses for good.

I am glad to tell you there is a new hot-sauce around.

I bring to you CryptoMania slot – the first provably and decentralized EOS-based casino game.

In this CryptoMania review and explainer post, I will provide a general overview of how this slot game is played and highlight its uniquenesss. You should also rest assured that I will be showing you series of illustrations on how to get around the game and fill your curious mind.

CryptoMania

Your Slot Games On EOS

CryptoMania is a casino gaming platform built upon the decentralized EOS infrastructure to enable a fair, transparent and rewarding gaming experience.

The game is constructed with a wider outlook to bring the gaming experience of traditional advance platform by using a battle-tested algorithm and mathematical random number generator.

According to the project Manifesto – CryptoMania game is a work of a team of experienced gamers, developers and blockchain enthusiast with over 50+ years of accumulated experience in the gaming industry and over 9+ of experience in the blockchain space.

Current use of the game is restricted to the EOS blockchain at the moment. However, there are underground plans to enable universal onboarding gateways and experience.

Placing a bet on CryptoMania is conducted via the EOS coin or MANIA token with future plans to allow other cryptocurrencies. The winning probability of bets is determined not only on luck but also by factors which are regulated by the adopted algorithm.

A Provably Fair and Trustless Gaming Platform

One unique feature that should excite all players of CryptoMania slot is the trustless onboarding process. Using the advantage of innovative escrow contract tools like Scatter, a player can start engaging with the slot game without ever needing to make a direct deposit or withdrawal, thereby, mitigating the risk associated with trust.

This trustless operation prevents heartbreaks experience when a project suddenly runoff with user’s fund as your private keys stay with you and you only.

The provably fair concept is realized by using the data of the hash of a blockchain transaction of a bet, which is regulated and calculated by the widely used slot machine “Mersenne Twister” algorithm for random number generation. This algorithm is the #1 used slot machine randomness determinant in the traditional world and top casino platforms.

The calculation of how the hash is determined is explained in this section on the CryptoMania website.

To instantly verify the fairness yourself a “maniaresult” blockchain result is provided to you every time you place your wager.

The advantage of this is that players do not need to trust the honesty of the algorithm adopted by the slot machine which mostly is rigged with cheat and unfairness in most traditional slot gaming, but to openly verify the authenticity of data backing a bet result.

Author’s Remark

By Combining the concept of verifiable gaming fairness and trustless payments, Cryptomania ticks the boxes of a credible casino dApp game and is worth keeping tabs on.

How CryptoMania Works

Your Chance To Multiplying Your Stash

CryptoMania slot machine matches symbols in a random but deterministic way, using a set of data to compute a winning bet.

Winnings are calculated and identify according to the value each particular symbol carries. Using this in conjunction with their combination and formation determines the result of a bet.

This diagram reveals the worth of each symbol and their combination worth.

The way the combination of any of these symbols forms a line and their frequency determine a winning bet and the payout amount.

Each formation of line with their assigned number is shown in the image below.

A zoom-out format

Author’s work

Lines are drawn on the basis of 3 rows and 5 reels or column.

A pattern must reveal at least 3 members before it is considered a winning bet. The number of appearance or frequency increases the winning amount. that is – 3x, 4x, or 5x.

Look at this example

The winning line in the above sample form a pattern similar to line 10, therefore the winning line is line 10.

These are some of the factors that determine winning lines.

Winning lines must be in succession from both leftmost to right and rightmost to left.

There are 10 X 2 possible winning lines per bet.

You can read the full rules from the project manifesto (page 8).

Here is another sample with winning line 5

Author’s Remark

Smooth login and onboarding process provides players with top experience. Intuitive website design simplifies the overall experience.

Crypto Mania Token Economics and Its Advantages

A good tokenomics determine whether a token fits an investment checkbox.

In the case of CryptoMania, tokens are generated under the concept of “play to mine” that is, for every successful bet wagered, a number of determined tokens are generated and replicated into two different pools.

The original pool serves to reward players in the form of dividends. The replicated second pool is divided among various sections like marketing, team, bounties, and investors.

Dividends are payout on an hourly basis and distributed proportionally among users who qualify. A user needs to stake some amounts of MANIA tokens in order to be eligible. Unstaking of tokens takes 24hours before they are released.

CryptoMania token generation is strictly based on the concept of “play to mine” and there are no pre-mimed tokens. There would be a total of 2.1 billion MANIA tokens which will be distributed in a period of 30 months.

For every 1 EOS a player wagered, the player receives Mania mining rewards. Higher mining rewards are enabled with an accumulated wagered amount of 10 EOS. which can also be leveled upped within four bonus levels.

Apart from the mining reward and distribution, 96% of the house edge profit is distributed back to players.

VIP Status

VIP members are entitled to up to 0.4% cashback on wagered amount.

Referral Program

CryptoMania affiliate program is one of the best you could come across with so many attached benefits. You stand to receive;

  • 0.2% lifetime on all your referral wager.
  • 10% extra Mania bonus on all Mania tokens mined by your referrals.

Consult CryptoMania Manifesto for other huge benefits. (Read from page 10)

Author’s Remark

The concept of “play to mine” without any prior pre-mine provide a fair tokenomics as tokens are generated based on usage giving the tokens a reasonable value.

Author’s General Remarks and Conclusion

Judging from an honest side of view based on my understanding of decentralized applications and casino games. The approach of operation adopted by CryptoMania is “Provably Fair” in many respects.

One aspect that is worth taking note of most is how there is no direct deposit or withdrawal, which goes a long way to minimize the risk associated with theft, hacks, and deceit.

Also, tokens are generated according to the usage of the system in a deterministic way, which ensures fair protection of the token value.

It is also important to point out the transparency I observe from the project product and resources while I was doing my research. An example is how a mathematical explainer of how bet results are calculated. Verify here.

On the other side of things, the obvious downside is the absence of any personal documentation of the team. The team operates under an anonymous banner with no one to be held responsible for a bad event or experience. Judging from my experience with many gaming and betting Dapps, most of them operate under this anonymous status ( it is seen with even the established ones). This status quo among betting Dapps may be assumed to avoid regulation pressure that is related to strict KYC process required to operate in this niche, geographic restrictions and other forms of regulations.

My Overall Rating

4.4 of 5

My rating resolve to a positive review, therefore I will be suggesting a befitting slogan that matches CryptoMania concept and usage.

A fair Betting / Gaming Website using the STEEM Blockchain !

Dear Steemians,

Today I want to talk to you about a nice website if you feel like betting or gambling !

KryptoGamers is the website/dapp I am talking about.

This is a nice addition to make you willing to trust a third party.

3 different games you can play

On their Platform you can play:

  • Dice
  • Blackjack
  • VideoPoker

They developed their own token listed on @steem-engine: GAMER

You can earn these tokens in many different ways:

  • By playing, you earn some tokens
  • Buying them on Steem-engine
  • Some were Airdrops to early birds
  • Daily Promotions (see the picture below)

You can stake them in order to get Dividends

  • 70% of the Profits calculated as per the house edge of each game are distributed as dividends
  • Upcoming dividends will be ready to claim after 8:30 AM UTC Daily
  • Only Staked Tokens are eligible for dividends

Kryptogamers just introduced a BuyBack system founded by 0.05% of the total wagered amount

Come Play Drugwars and I will Give You Ressources; Big Changes are Coming !

Dear Steemians,

You all have probably heard of @drugwars game. It launched and was one of the Top 5 CryptoGame played worldwide. Here is the address to sign-up.

It used to pay rewards in Steem before it stopped and then a lot of us left the game as they saw no more interest.

At first, updates were very frequent and it slowed down during the past month. Nevertheless, a few news get me very excited.

  1. Drugwars Dollars will be implemented on Steem Engine, therefore we will soon be able to monetize some of the progress in the game. Link: https://steemit.com/drugwars/@drugwars/drugwars-dollars-on-steem-engine
  2. Drugwars communicated that a big update is coming ! We will soon be able to hold a gang territory, this will bring new missions (and rewards) as well as a new phase to the game: GangWars.
  3. This is great because in order to get players involved and increase the value of the token, you need ot have a competitive landscape where you are willing to buy this token in order to be stronger to fight other players. It is a kind of risky investment where you invest for a future reward if you succeed.
