BitConduite: Visualizing and Analyzing Activity on the Bitcoin Network [article]

Christoph Kinkeldey, Jean-Daniel Fekete, Petra Isenberg
2017 Eurographics Conference on Visualization  
BitConduite is a system we are developing for the visual exploration of financial activity on the Bitcoin network.  ...  Yet, the open data does not lend itself easily to an analysis of how different individuals and institutions-or entities on the network-actually use Bitcoin.  ...  Thus, Bitcoin, and in particular users' transaction activities are an important data source to study, as very little is known about the actors and their activities on the Bitcoin network.  ...
