Bitcoin Monitoring

The following charts on the Bitcoin Peer-to-Peer Network are based on measurements conducted for research purposes. Our monitor nodes are located in Germany, results may differ for other locations. This site shows plots about:

Nodes

The results presented here were measured using the infrastructure originally set up for this work:
Timing Analysis for Inferring the Topology of the Bitcoin Peer-to-Peer Network (Presentation)
@inproceedings{
	neudecker-atc16,
	title = {Timing Analysis for Inferring the Topology of the Bitcoin Peer-to-Peer Network},
	author = {Neudecker, Till and Andelfinger, Philipp and Hartenstein, Hannes},
	booktitle = {Proceedings of the 13th IEEE International Conference on Advanced and Trusted Computing (ATC)},
	year = {2016},
	month = {July}
}
Furthermore, the gathered data was used for this work:
Could Network Information Facilitate Address Clustering in Bitcoin? (Presentation)
@inproceedings{neudecker-fc17,
	title={Could Network Information Facilitate Address Clustering in Bitcoin?},
	author={Neudecker, Till and Hartenstein, Hannes},
	year = {2017}
}
A short report on Bitcoin Cash Sybil Nodes on the Bitcoin Peer-to-Peer Network is also based on the collected data (August 2017).
