The Bitrawr Bitcoin Price Index provides the latest Bitcoin price in US Dollars using an average from the world's leading exchanges.
A transaction is a transfer of Bitcoin value that is broadcast to the network and collected into blocks. A transaction typically references previous transaction outputs as new transaction inputs and dedicates all input Bitcoin values to new outputs. Transactions are not encrypted, so it is possible to browse and view every transaction ever collected into a block. Once transactions are buried under enough confirmations they can be considered irreversible.
Mining hashrate is a key security metric. The more hashing (computing) power in the network, the greater its security and its overall resistance to attack. Although Bitcoin’s exact hashing power is unknown, it is possible to estimate it from the number of blocks being mined and the current block difficulty.
Daily transaction fees divided by the number of transactions made on the Bitcoin blockchain. Chart uses 7-day moving average.
Adjusted transaction volume is a measure of the economic throughput of BTC on the Bitcoin blockchain. The adjustment attempts to remove spam transactions, such as users moving BTC back-and-forth between their own accounts.
Miner revenue takes into account inflation rewards (block subsidy) and transaction fees. Miners are paid rewards in the blockchain's native currency for producing valid blocks and processing transactions.
The Lightning Network aims to provide an accessible way for users to engage in off-chain payments quickly and reliably by adding another layer to the Bitcoin blockchain. Lightning is constructed on the notion of payment channels, which allow two parties lock up on-chain funds in the channel to transact without pushing their transactions to the blockchain. Each party can send a net value of up to the initial amount locked on their side of the channel. This chart graphs the total sum of balances available across all lightning payment channels, also known as the Channel capacity.
