The number of transactions in the main network of bitcoin has shown negative signs and in quarterly terms fell to a minimum of 2.5 years.
This was reported by the founder of the consulting company Post Oak Labs, Tim Swanson, referring to the analytical report for institutional investors Diar, which will be published next Monday.
Bitcoin transactions are now at a 2.5 year low… and it is not because of “batching” which many promoters like to blindly cite.

The diagram shows that the number in the second quarter of 2018 does not even reach the performance of the first quarter of 2016.
At the same time, such dynamics cannot be explained by the introduction of the technology of pooling transactions, batching, since the vast majority of transfers in the bitcoin network are carried out without its application.
