BitConeView: Visualization of Flows in the Bitcoin Transaction Graph
Bitcoin is a digital currency whose transactions are stored into a public ledger, called blockchain, that can be viewed as a directed graph with more than 70 millions nodes, where each edge represents money flowing from one transaction to another one. We describe a system for the visual analysis of how and when a flow of money mixes with other flows in the transaction graph. Such a system relies on high-level metaphors for the representation of the graph size and characteristics, allowing for high level analysis of huge portions of it.
