The 100 most-viewed posts on Steemit

Trogdor top 100.png

Hi all, welcome back to my blog. If you have been following me for a while, you probably know that I occasionally like to dig into the data and try to find some interesting results. Recently I've been taking a look at the view counts of different posts on Steemit, and I decided to make a list of the most popular posts of all time. This is actually a non-trivial problem, since view counts are not actually available through any public API, and of course they are not stored on the blockchain. Only Steemit, Inc. has access to the database of page view counts, so needless to say it was a slightly difficult process to actually acquire these values.

But, without further ado, I would like to present the 100 most-viewed posts of all time! Note that only started recording views sometime in late 2016, so this does not include views from before that time, and of course this does not include post views through any other block explorer.

AuthorNumber of top 100 most-viewed posts

I was also surprised and very happy to see that my post on EOS vs. Ethereum also made the top 100 list! :D

I hope this information is interesting for you! I believe this is the first post that dug in to the post view count data, so I'm hoping to look further into the data and see if any other interesting results pop out at me. But in the meantime, I wish you all the best!

Best wishes,
Trogdor :)


Seems like most people just want to talk about Cryptocurrency

Yeah it's probably the most talked about topic here on steemit... that or steemit itself and ways to make money on steemit, lol. Guess that's what happens when a social media website is run on top of a cryptocoin.

That makes sense. But it is a bit sad it seems like a missed opportunity

haha, yeah it does seem that way, thanks for reading!

Thanks for making the list
