Hypergrid Business published September 2022 statistics for the past month and there is positive signs of growth again. The OpenSim land area grew by 806 regions, active users added 2, 349 and OpenSim nearly saw 3, 000 new registered users. The OSgrid still remains the largest grid for total land area (37, 155 regions) and for the most total active users (4, 984). Kitely comes in 2nd place with 18, 631 regions and AviTron with 3, 584 active users in 2nd place. Guess there is some catching up to do to get ahead of the OSgrid which is growing on a monthly basis.
Second Life has 27, 373 regions as of 18th September 2022 which is 10, 000 regions less than what the OSgrid has currently. Second Life has more daily active users (up to 51, 000+) and probably thousands of daily new registered accounts every day.
Planning has already started for upcoming Halloween events that will take place on many OpenSim grids through October 2022. I would imagine next months statistics should be higher showing positive gains hopefully.
Here are some interesting statistics about the OpenSim land area and registered users now as of September 2022.
“OpenSim land area now stretches 116,084 regions in total, across a total of 1,779 grids tracked by Hypergrid Business. The metaverse is home to 468,245 registered users of which 41,443 were active this month. 95 percent of these are hypergrid users and 99 percent of the land is hypergriddable”.
The “Kitely Market is now the largest collection of legal content available in OpenSim”. There “are currently 19, 605 product listings in Kitely Market containing 38, 073 product variations, 33, 024 of which are exportable”.
“Kitely Market has delivered orders to 559 OpenSim grids to date. This includes both public grids listed here as well as private grids that are not accessible to the public, don’t report their stats, and don’t make it into our reports”.
Check out the Kitely Marketplace growth since January 2015 below.
“Nearly all the growth in Kitely Market has been in content that can be exported to other grids — that is the green area in the chart. The red area, of non-exportable content, has stayed level for the past seven years”.
