2019 has brought us one of the best dApp on the Steem Blockchain 3Speak. It’s a video sharing platform, trying to introduce the blockchain in the video sharing industry. A platform where you can speak your truth.
The video sharing industry is huge. There is a great potential in it. Combine it with crypto and we have an interesting situation. No doubt this are early stages in the industry and there are challenges ahead. Storing videos is one of them. Video content is the most intense on the storage.
Here we will take a look at the activity on the platform, the number of posts and comments in 2019, and the number of users. The top content creators will be presented as well.
3Speak started its journey somewhere around April 2019 and got more traction in May 2019.
Activity on 3Speak
First let’s see the number of posts, or to be more exact videos coming from the platform.
Here is the chart.
The number of daily posts has been in an uptrend with a few spikes. The platform is still new and there is a volatility in the number of posts.
The number of posts is increasing, and it has reached an average 50 videos per day in December 2019.
The number of posts showed with red is very small, but this doesn’t tell all the story. These are comments made from 3Speak frontend itself. Most of the comments are made from the Steemit platform. Users watch the video and replay from Steemit.
Here is the chart with the number of comments that has the 3Speak tag in them.
Here we can see much better picture for the comments. There around 19k comments in total and 7400 posts, or around 2.5 comments per posts.
How is 3Speak doing with the number of authors on the platform?
Below is the chart with the number od unique authors that posted on the 3Speak platform. These are authors that posted directly trough 3Speak frontend.
Well we can see a clear up trend in this chart. The number of unique users has grown over time and it has reached 284 at the end of 2019. Its worth noting that 3Speak has a subscription model, meaning authors pay a monthly fee to be able to post from the platform.
One more thing to add here is that the platform started its journey in a bull year for Steem and bad STEEM prices. They have been building in these conditions and hope when market turns, we will see the chart above growing a lot.

The voting started in June 2019, with the number of daily votes growing up until October, when there are days with 250 votes. Afterwards the number of daily votes stabilized and in December 2019 the average number of daily votes is 64. Nice job from 3Speak supporting the content creators.
The Most Supported 3Speak Authors
Below is a table for top authors who have received support from 3Speak in form of votes.
|No||User||Cumulative Vote Weight||Number of Votes|
The ranking is made by the cumulative vote weight that authors received from @threespeak, meaning one vote at 100% is better than 3 votes at 20%. The number of votes is also included for illustration.
On a rough estimate the top authors received between 700 to 3500 STEEM in rewards from the @threespeak account in 2019.
