More traders means more chances to buy and sell commodities. As a matter of interest, from a quick data mining expedition in the EVE-Central database, I present you with the top trading systems in EVE. These were cataloged not from volume (which is very hard to determine without tapping into everyone’s wallet), but from the number of active orders present in the database for each system.
The first chart is the makeup of just the top 7 systems (before statistics people shoot me, “Other” was omitted in this chart). As no surprise to anyone, Jita is the top, followed by the other capital systems.
Here is a view of the top 40 systems. Note the high ranking of two 0.0 systems, 6VDT-H and G-0Q86.
I am currently looking at bringing much better real time statistics to EVE-Central – leave a comment for what you find interesting!
