I uploaded the forum stats to google docs for anyone who's interested in having a look:

https://spreadsheets.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Arbegqx_2nKadF9wa21Db1Z1S3hhNzF1QVBCX1p1U3c&hl=en_US

Most online was, no surprise, June 19 2011 (GOXED!). Since then daily logins by members has started to decline - people losing interest now that exponential USD growth has stalled perhaps? Even that high was only ~14% of the total registered forum membership base at the time - shows how small the really active user base of bitcoin is perhaps? Total membership of the forum is ~30k, GOX had ~60k customers - hard to imagine there are more than 100k bitcoin users in total. Still tiny.

Daily growth of new members has also declined post-GOXED-day. Interesting to see that there were several days of high (>400 new members/day) sign-ups before the GOX debacle but the sign-up rate has cooled off after that.

Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

Interesting correlations, but outliers (such as the GOX'd episode) aren't always the best to include. What I take from this is that the number of new members who join still is increasing.

the most interesting statistic of all would be this:  how many of those new members were banned or heavily edited by the mods in the days leading up to, and immediately after, the GOXing?

it can't be that difficult a statistic to suss out from the forum database...

June 2011 will be remembered as the month when the public was shocked by this new technology called Bitcoin - and Bitcoin was shocked by a subset of the public with ill intentions.  Now that the boat has been rocked - can it be rocked again?  What other events might trigger such a spike in interest?  What other events might trigger similar caution?

forum membership is still increasing but the rate of growth is less than it was pre-GOX. Back to pre-June 2011 levels in fact and declining. I think there was a hugh surge of press attention, that's cooled off a bit, plus the GOX incident which means that growth has slowed down. Not a bad thing in my opinion. Bitcoin is a long term project (months not days Wink), building the necessary services and infrastructure on top of bitcoin takes time and people expecting to double their money every week are going to be disappointed.

how many people have been downloading the bitcoin client?

I know in May you saw something like a doubling of downloads since the genesis of bitcoin clients as compared to th first 2 years or so.  Has that been maintaining since?

Maybe we should ad a figure for how many new adblock rules the typical user has to add to hide all the annoying adverts people have in their sigs.
