Independent Research: The Sustainability of Bitcoins
I received an Undergraduate Summer Research Grant to carry out independent research on the Sustainability of Bitcoins. I used python and beautiful soup to scrape data from the Blockchain. I also analyzed the mining capabilities of technologies used and their real profitability in the future. I conclude that Bitcoins are not sustainable in the long term when the supply of minted coin decreases below a certain point. Check out the full report here.
