Brave New Coin runs a Bitcoin full node. As soon as this node sees an unconfirmed transaction transmitted across the network it is recorded as entering the memory pool, or mempool. Mempool transaction data, which includes the transaction fee, is collected every 10 seconds.

Along with mempool data, we also collect confirmed transactions and block information.

We generate block statistics on different granularities (block-level, hourly, daily, weekly, monthly and yearly) and mempool analytics after every block execution. Eight different prediction models for the bitcoin block reward halving have been created using this data, which is updated every day at midnight UTC. For more information please get in touch.
