Satoshi Dice is generating about 30,000 transactions per day.
Is there a way to estimate the number of people playing, the average bet amount and the number of bitcoins on average that they buy in order to play?

I would be nice know the approximate “float” of bitcoins that are being bought to play Satoshi Dice. As their volume of players increases, it grows a demand for bitcoins impacting the price.

Every time a block is mined, a certain amount of BTC (called the subsidy) is created out of thin air and given to the miner. The subsidy halves every four years and will reach 0 in about 130 years.

At a high level, you could figure out this information, because recent bets are listed on the satoshidice website.

There may be a forum thread with that information already, but I'm not aware of one.

Certainly would be interesting to figure out, and even better if someone else figures it out for me.  Grin

From what I've seen, most people tend to play with the money already sitting around.  I know I've never deposited to play.

From a certain standpoint, Bitcoin obtains its value from the transactions the network carries. So more transactions, even very small ones like from SD, should make the network more valuable and increase demand for coins.

SD drives up the demand of bitcoins and therefore makes bitcoins more valuable. The number of transactions processed by the network is orthogonal to the value of bitcoins, however.
