Bitcoin is a digital currency created in 2009 (also called crypto-currency) that is not backed by any country’s central bank or government. Every transaction conducted in the Bitcoin network is recorded permanently and irrevocably in a public database known as the Blockchain.
Designed by the Data Science Institute, this visualisation looks at bitcoin activity across the globe, including a real-time demonstration of bitcoin transactions. By visualising this network of highly associated data in a large scale environment we are able to accelerate the algorithmic discovery of anomalous transactional patterns, with obvious applications in areas such as fraud detection.
