Who are we?

We are a group of students from Business Academy Aarhus. We have been given an assignment that requires us to design and program a data visualization from the given theme "weather and climate." The purpose of the visualization is to find meaningful patterns in the data and communicate these to the target group.

What is our topic?

Our topic is the Bitcoin Network and the Global Banking Sector.

What is Bitcoin and why?

Cryptocurrency is digital money. This means that there is no physical currency or bill - everything is online. One can buy cryptocurrency with a credit card or in some cases get it through a process called "mining". Cryptocurrency is stored in a digital wallet, either online, on one's computer or on other hardware. Since 2010, cryptocurrency has had tremendous growth and many, especially young people, have had great interest in the field. But without thought and care, we do not consider the impact this technology has on the environment when we make a transaction or mine.

Therefore

Therefore, we will investigate whether:

This has resultet in a visualization with the purpose of informing the user.
We do not want to make any desicions about what is right or wrong.
We simply want to spread out information to make it easier for the user to make an opinion about the subject.
