I'd appreciate any questions or suggestions regarding the BSIP.

Keep up the great work with these reports @steempower

BitShares grows from strength to strength. Great report and round up of all the important happenings. This is the best and only original BitShares weekly report!

Thanks for this great data... It's so comforting to see the stats and ongoing health of the Bitshares network.

It's a very busy network.

I've been waiting for that BSIP to be proposed for years! So happy it's finally coming to the DEX. 3x collateral backed by more stable assets backed by 3x collateral? I don't think people understand how much this will increase the value of Bitshares - both in price and its proposition.

Nice work. Please keep going!

What happened to the number of accounts holding bts off exchages graph tho?

You have written this exceptionally well which you every time. I love your content and want to read your every post.

BitCrab suggested to add “Price Feed Quality Assessment” column for voters to access the quality of the witness's price feeding especially the quality of implementing BSIP 42: Negative Feedback Mechanism
