Samenvatting

How can interactive media visualize quantitative information about the economic development of cryptocurrencies over time to traders and journalists? Cryptocurrencies are a new way of thinking about financial systems and currencies. These decentralized technical phenomena work in a completely different way compared to traditional financial systems. This thesis discusses the difficulties traders and journalists face while trying to understand the economical state of these systems. Research was conducted on both traders and journalists (in the form of interviews, deskresearch and prototype testing) to determine what information both groups are looking for. Existing research was looked at to see what kind of currency metrics played a role in economic state and price formation. Based on this research a list of metrics was defined that can be used to better understand the currencies. Important perspectives on these metrics were also established. Additionally, a web based visualization platform was proposed that shows how these metrics developed over time. It offers a number of different ways to view and compare those metrics between different currencies. We designed the interface of the platform and built an early prototype that was tested by traders, journalists and cryptocurrency users.
