Big Bang (1 of 6)

On July 30th 2015, Ethereum distributed ether from its sale into 36PrZ[...] (see "Inject Bitcoin," Series 1). This original plots hundreds of largest so-called "genesis wallets" -- addresses that received this ether. The network is laid out with Schmuhl's graphopt algorithm, seeded with the Unix timestamp of the genesis block (7/30/2015). Nodes are sized according to the amount of ether passing through them. For example, the largest distribution of ETH flowed into the Ethereum Foundation wallet, indicated by the massive node near the center of the "big bang." Also plotted are some of the first transactions from these large wallets, sized in accordance with the ether received. Many of these initial transactions are to emerging token sales and applications, which arrived quickly on Ethereum -- the ERC-20 token standard was proposed just months after the genesis block.

Owners have access to a PDF key of this plot, in OpenSea's unlockable content. This key labels many of these wallets, and includes QR codes and links to Etherscan, where these and many other wallet labels can be explored. Apt to the space analogy is that some of these expansive projects experienced a slow heat death, while others have already formed vibrant solar systems of activity that continue today.

Ethstory, Original 2 in Series 2: "0xBB9bc (Branching)"

It is in Ethereum's nature to expand and diversify, to branch and bring into existence new varieties, new experiences. This second series "0xBB9bc (Branching)" is brighter than the first, signaling a kind of "turning on the light," actualizing and perceiving these rapidly branching projects. All 4 originals were generated using thousands of pieces of data drawn from primary sources, including Ethereum documentation and on-chain activity.

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.
