HGB: Kitely was OpenSim's most valuable grid in 2017

Kitely was OpenSim’s most valuable grid in 2017
Maria Korolov wrote:One of the most important numbers in OpenSim is how many new people sign up for accounts each month. New people means new customers for merchants, new creators and performers who help improve quality of life on the grid, new people to interact with, and, of course, potential new land renters for the grids themselves.

This year, Kitely was the grid that brought in the most new users. And, since Kitely is hypergrid-enabled, these users have been able to travel to most of the other OpenSim grids, enriching the entire community. ...

As a reader pointed out in the comments, I originally neglected to mention Kitely Market. Here, Kitely stands in its own unique category, since no other grid or vendor has a viable multi-grid marketplace. ...

As of the end of 2017, Kitely Market is delivering products to avatars on 240 different grids — a growth of 48 percent compared to this time last year. ...

The total number of product variations listed on Kitely Market has also grown, from 16,364 at the end of 2016 to 20,858 last month. Kitely Market groups listings into products, such as multiple colors of the same dress, and the number of distinct products grew from 8,551 to 11,014. Those growth rates were also in the double digits last year, 27 percent and 29 percent, respectively. ...

At the end of 2016, 70 percent of all listings were exportable. Today, that percentage is up to 77 percent, a sign that Kitely Market merchants are increasingly comfortable with hypergrid commerce.
