Your trusted source for data and analysis on the burgeoning realm of utility use of cryptocurrency in the developing world.
Matt Ahlborg is a data scientist and analyst. In 2019 February, he wrote an in-depth article which aggregated trading data from LocalBitcoins.com and paired it with other data sets relating to global socioeconomic and geopolitical circumstances. On the whole, he was able to show that Bitcoin activity on the platform gravitated towards certain geopolitical and socioeconomic environments, and that utility, not speculation, was likely the driving force. The article was cited by the NY Times, The Human Rights Foundation, and CNN to illustrate the potential value proposition of Bitcoin in certain places of the world.
Most recently, he has been sponsored by dlab, a venture capital accelerator in the blockchain space, to research this topic on a full time basis.
