12 Best Cryptocurrency Datasets for Machine Learning

Article by Meiryum Ali | May 22, 2019

Most of the world was first introduced to cryptocurrency with the worldwide boom of Bitcoin trading from 2016 to 2018. While the prices of Bitcoin have dropped drastically since the 2017 upswing, many people are still trading cryptocurrency today.

Cryptocurrency is a digital or virtual currency that uses cryptography for security. It includes encryption techniques used to regulate value amount, verify transactions, and operate independently without a central bank. Cryptocurrency can be valuable because of their security features, which makes them resilient against counterfeits.

Machine learning is useful for cryptocurrency because it can predict prices and identify scams before they occur, based on historical data. With trade volumes reaching billions of dollars a day, it’s no wonder there’s increased interest in finding datasets for cryptocurrencies. To get you started, here are Lionbridge AI’s top picks for cryptocurrency datasets for machine learning.
