According daily volume of transactions in the network of Bitcoin rose to levels January 2018 — shortly after the main price of bitcoin has reached 20 thousand dollars. According to some key players in the industry, it is a sign of evolution in ecosystems and the fundamental characteristics of cryptocurrency.

According to Loppa, the reduced demand for transactions, improved algorithms for the estimation of the Commission, the adoption of SegWit and transaction grouping has led to more efficient usage of unit space and reduce differences in the use of this scarce resource. SegWit aims to reduce the processing time and expectations, as well as transaction fees.

In 2018 the percentage of Bitcoin transactions through SegWit increased from 10 to 40 percent, while the average transaction size in BTC peaked at 750 bytes in February. Then in the fourth quarter of 2018 fell to 450 bytes. According to Lopp, the result of wider adoption of SegWit. He also recalled that last year, the dominance of Bitcoin again exceeded 50 percent after a brief fall to 32.5 percent.

The number of available gcd is not significantly decreased in comparison with the exchange rate. I suspect that the people who run these nodes, are very devoted to Bitcoin, or do so for economic reasons. So I doubt they will disable the nod due to Bouncing of course.

In November 2018 cryptoanalyst Anthony Pompliano said about the growth fundamentals of Bitcoin, including the cost of each transaction and their total amount. Pompliano highlighted seven main characteristics of Bitcoin and pointed to the growing number of Bitcoin wallets, as well as increasing the number of daily confirmed transactions.
