The Bitcoin Game #8 - Danno Ferrin, Bitstamp & Visualization

Published on January 18th, 2015 by Rob

Welcome to The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell.

Danno Ferrin's current day job is working on Java for the Oracle Corporation. But for fun, Danno uses his programming skills to create visualization software for the BItcoin blockchain. In the wake of the large Bitstamp theft, Danno has been able to analyze some of the Bitcoin movements, using his software. Danno might be one of the most knowledgeable people about the loss, other than insiders like Bitstamp employees and the actual hacker (I have not been able to secure an interview with these parties). He speculates on what happened, and we also discuss a few other topics.

I hope you enjoy this interview with Danno Ferrin.

January 20, 2015 Update: Danno has seen more transactions since this postcast was released, check out his blog for the most recent observations and analyses.
