Is it fair to say that because the bitcoin exchanges use universal bitcoin wallets to enable instant transactions between accounts, the nodes on the network should be biased towards bitcoin users which do not hold speculative positions on exchange accounts?



Does this mean the genuine users of bitcoin have stayed which is a good sign for bitcoin? Or is this a flawed assessment?

Well the active nodes have maintained the volumes, doesn't that warrant some analysis?

I'm both a speculator and a user. Bitcoin benefits from both speculators and users.

Your theory is probably true to some extent. But we don't know if that extent is very tiny or very large Smiley

It didn't benefit from the foolish speculators that inflated the bubble and sold off.

I don't know what other explanations there would be for the stable nodes?

It did. A lot of the coverage of Bitcoin mentioned the huge run up in price. It got a lot more coverage because of the get-rich-quick angle.

People look at the bubble and say "Oh look it's volatile, don't go into it".

Other people say "Get into it while you still can!"
