Introduction

Like any rapidly emerging tech, crypto’s ecosystem is important to understand but difficult to capture and visualize. To that end, Decentralized is our evolving data project to provide impactful insight, for and about, the crypto community by using publicly available data sources.

You can interact with the Tableau Public Dashboard (built by Ronny) below to explore the world’s current top 100 cryptocurrencies by market share, project name, and geolocation color-coded to express the sentiment of the ruling political bodies toward crypto. For cryptocurrencies without operational geolocations, like Bitcoin, we have included a “Null” option.

Market Cap Dashboard

This dashboard lets you interact with the market cap of the world’s current top 100 cryptocurrency companies. It’s color-coded by continent with the black tick marks dividing the continent by city, then project name, and current ranking in the top 100. The following explains what the rings represent:

  • First Inner Ring – Continent (e.g. North America)
  • Second Inner Ring – City location (e.g. San Francisco)
  • Third Inner Ring – Project Name (e.g. XRP)
  • Fourth Ring – Rank (e.g. #3)

Hovering or clicking on each ring will show what the market cap is for that location. Clicking on the continents in the legend will change focus to the selected region. Unclicking that continent will return the dashboard to its previous view.

What are the steps? What are the sources?

Our data was updated on December 6th, 2018. We realize this is like taking a single frame picture of a SpaceX rocket in flight…it misses the important real-time movement. For now, you’ll have to settle with weekly updates every Thursday at 7 pm MDT, to provide new insights about the ecosystem and its individual cryptos.

You can also help improve the crypto community by leaving us feedback about the insights you want next, checking back next week, and telling your friends about this project on social media. By doing that, each week we’ll move closer to real-time info about the entire world of crypto. As the ancient Romans would say, progressus, non perfectio (progress, not perfection).

Using python and publicly available APIs we extracted project names and their whitepapers from GitHub. The next step used project names to link market share data through Coinmarketcap’s API to provide a snapshot of the metrics from each token’s page, along with their historical data. From there, project names were fed into the Google Maps API to identify a physical geolocation (if the crypto has one) and then double-validated by a human researcher. While we’re only focusing on the top 100 cryptos right now, our project will evolve to include all cryptos (alive or dead) that are part of this growing ecosystem. Welcome to the community!
