Abstract

As the pioneer of all blockchain technology, Bitcoin is the most popular cryptocurrency to date. In this talk, Anthony will present research results from holistic cryptocurrency fluctuation analysis and introduce the Impact-Score metric to distinguish event-induced changes from non-event or “normal” fluctuations. Extended analysis on three events - the election of Trump, the Bitcoin-Bitcoin Cash Hard Fork, and the regulation of Bitcoin by South Korea - revealed major shifts in Bitcoin transaction value distributions and changes in blockchain indicators consistent with expected behavior.

Officers Needed!

 

No experience required!

All years & majors welcome.

Low time commitment.

Create Events

Work with local companies to create events where we tour them! This is a great way to connect with companies in the Boise area. Micron, Clearwater, and Idaho Power are among the companies we have toured in the past. No experience required; we'll guide you through the process. 

 

Unmatched Networking

As an IEEE Officer, you'll meet industry experts and make connections not otherwise possible. These connections can easily lead to a job or internship. Travel with us to area meetings, talking to chief architects, CTOs, and more!

 

Unique Knowledge

IEEE is great for resumes. You'll learn leadership, communication, and other skills that can't be easily learned through classes.
