IBM, MIT and Elliptic release world's largest labeled dataset of bitcoin transactions


Elliptic's dataset comprises 200,000 bitcoin transactions, with a total value of $6 billion. It will be publicly available from today, and can now be used by open-source developers and other researchers to train machine learning algorithms to spot characteristics that are unique to illicit or legitimate transactions. By helping to keep crypto within the law, it should boost its legitimacy in the eyes of governments around the world.
