The first commit of the HadoopCryptoLedger has been on 26th March of 2016. Since then a lot of new functionality has been added, such as support for major Big Data platforms including Hive / Flink / Spark. Furthermore, besides Bitcoin, Altcoins based on Bitcoin (e.g. Namecoin, Litecoin or Bitcoin Cash) and Ethereum (including Altcoins) have… HadoopCryptoLedger library a vision for the coming Years weiterlesen

Leverage the Power of Apache Flink to analyze the Bitcoin Blockchain

The hadoopcryptoledger library has been enhanced with a datasource for Apache Flink. This means you can use the Big Data processing framework Apache Flink to analyze the Bitcoin Blockchain. It also includes an example that counts the total number of transactions in the Bitcoin blockchain. Of course given the power of Apache Flink you can think… Leverage the Power of Apache Flink to analyze the Bitcoin Blockchain weiterlesen

Spark+Scala+Graphx: Analyzing the Bitcoin Transaction Graph

The hadoopcryptoledger library provides now an example how you can generate a Bitcoin Transaction Graph using the Big Data graph analysis technologies Spark+Scala+Graphx. Basically it demonstrates how to read the Bitcoin Blockchain from HDFS, transform it into a graph with Bitcoin addresses as vertices and transactions between them as edges. The example returns the 5… Spark+Scala+Graphx: Analyzing the Bitcoin Transaction Graph weiterlesen

Hive & Bitcoin: Analytics on Blockchain data with SQL

You can now analyze the Bitcoin Blockchain using Hive and the hadoopcryptoledger library with the new HiveSerde plugin. Basically you can link any data that you loaded in Hive with Bitcoin Blockchain data. For example, you can link Blockchain data with important events in history to determine what causes Bitcoin exchange rates to increase or… Hive & Bitcoin: Analytics on Blockchain data with SQL weiterlesen

Using Apache Spark to Analyze the Bitcoin Blockchain

The hadoopcryptoledger library provides now a simple example how you can analyze the Bitcoin Blockchain with Apache Spark. Previously, I described how you can use Hadoop MR or any other Hadoop ecosystem-compatible application to analyze it. Basically, it leverages the HadoopRDD API to read the Hadoop File Format of the hadoopcryptoledger library. Afterwards you can… Using Apache Spark to Analyze the Bitcoin Blockchain weiterlesen
