Blockchain Data

A Collection of Research on the Information Market for Digital Assets




This decade has been marked with the rise of blockchain based technologies. A blockchain is a distributed public ledger that stores transactions between two parties without requiring a trusted central authority. On a Blockchain, two unacquainted parties can create an unmodifiable transaction that is permanently recorded on the ledger to be seen by the public.

Many applications built with this technology are already having a wide array of social and economic impacts on society. As these applications proliferate, so does the complexity and volume of data stored by blockchains. Analyzing this data has emerged as an important research topic, already leading to methodological advancements in statistics, computer and information sciences. This website serves as the central repository on research associated with all forms of blockchain data analytics.

Papers and Code

BitcoinHeist: Topological Data Analysis for Ransomware Detection on the Bitcoin Blockchain

Proposes an efficient and tractable data analytics framework to automatically detect new malicious addresses in a ransomware family, given only a limited records of previous transactions. Furthermore, our proposed techniques exhibit high utility to detect the emergence of new ransomware families, that is, ransomware with no previous records of transactions.

Machine Learning in/for Blockchain: Future and Challenges

Reviews the research on combining blockchain and machine learning technologies and demonstrates that they can collaborate efficiently and effectively.

Data Science on Blockchains

In this tutorial, we offer a holistic view on applied Data Science on Blockchains. Starting with the core components of Blockchain, we will detail the state of art in Blockchain data analytics for graph, security and finance domains.
