Bridging BTC (1 of 6)

Deposits into Ethereum's public sale were hosted in 2014 by BTC address 36PrZ[...]. "Bridging BTC" plots in orange most depositors who purchased approximately 10,000 or more ether in 2014. BTC transactions flow into this central address. Vitalik Buterin's blog post about the sale (7/22/14) indicated that 1 bitcoin would yield 2,000 ether for the early period of the sale, and then linearly scale down to 1337 ether/bitcoin by 9/2/2014. Using this formula, this piece draws possible linkages to GENESIS wallets in the Ethereum mainnet launch -- bridging the wallets on Ethereum with their corresponding wallets on Bitcoin. The dotted lines reflect this alignment, symbolizing what is to come but not yet realized. They converge on the future GENESIS block, at the top left. Those who submitted into 36PrZ[...] await this realization, shown here only as an intriguing specter of that future state. Zooming in on the PDF version of this original reveals the first few characters of wallet addresses and transaction hashes.

Nodes and edges are taken directly from a subset of on-chain data. Edges are rendered with Davidson-Harel, an algorithm that positions wallet addresses on this graph. Randomization is done by seeding Davidson-Harel with the Unix timestamp associated with the first wave of transactions to 36PrZ[...] and Vitalik Buterin's blog post about the sale (7/22/14).

Ethstory, Original 3 in Series 1: "36PrZ (Conception)"

The first series "36PrZ (Conception)" illustrates some basic elements of pre-Ethereum history. All are based on actual data, structured and laid out in a manner that produces visuals that relay this early significance. Each original was generated using thousands of pieces of data drawn from original sources, including Ethereum documentation and on-chain activity. The first series is in a dark theme, connoting chain archaeology like the study of etchings made permanent on a cave wall. The cave's dark surrounding signals something intriguing behind these etchings, of human intentions before knowing their future course.

Ethstory is a data visualization project using network and other diagrams to describe the history of Ethereum. Each original uses thousands of data points from on-chain and other resources creating symbolic depictions of Ethereum's intriguing history. On OpenSea, owners (and only owners) unlock a password-protected vector-quality PDF, permitting printing, zooming, etc. to any resolution.

Ethstory is complete. Thanks to collectors. Thanks so much for your support. Over 30 ETH have been donated to various nonprofits. Extensive detail about this project including charitable donations from initial sales can be found on the main website: ethstory.eth.link

Some thematic summary on Medium blog post.
