Mastering Bitcoin - Community Outline Review The United Nations of Bitcoin This is a map of every Bitcoin download (that was able to be traced to a country), by operating system.

@_stevemoore/Bitcoin A Network Analyst's View of the Block Chain Martin Harrigan is a computer scientist and software developer. He is the founder of QuantaBytes, an Irish startup developing a suite of tools for analyzing and visualising bitcoin’s block chain. He is also the co-author of one of the earliest academic papers to study the network properties of the block chain and its implications for anonymity. The block chain is a decentralised, consensus-driven ledger of every successful bitcoin transaction to date. As of the 300,000th block, the ledger includes over 38 million transactions. Aside from being a monumental technical achievement, the block chain is a fascinating dataset. In this network, every node represents a transaction, and every (directed) edge represents a flow of bitcoins from an output of one transaction to an input of another. Network science Network science is the study of complex networks. The network as a whole is too large and complex for most network visualisation tools.

When an economist tells you something that is based on a theory or a model, you should be very skeptical This was the year we were supposed to get hoverboards and flying cars. Instead we got more robots that fall over. Even though they were all over the news, television, and cinema screens this year, robots have not really entered the mainstream yet. The DARPA Robotics Challenge Inspired by the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster of 2011, the Pentagon’s research division, DARPA, wanted to host a competition to create robots that could operate in situations generally dangerous to humans. Although the goal of the competition was a grand one—to spur development of robots that could one day save our lives—the reality was far more comical. Who knows—in eight years, maybe we’ll have our own personal robots at home, as more and more money gets pumped into research. Tomatan This is just a Japanese robot that feeds you tomatoes while you run. hitchBOT I was very close to not including this on the list, since it’s barely a robot.
