Thanks to everyone in the community who worked with us through the past few months of beta testing and soft launch.
Everything is up and running well, and we're constantly iterating improvements.


Bitcoin’s Ultimate Data Source is Now Named ‘Kaiko’

At Challenger Deep, the company building the bitcoin industry's ultimate data source, we’re rebranding our service as ‘Kaiko’.

The new name is easier to remember, and fits with the company’s motto: if you dive deep beneath what you see on the surface, there’s a fascinating world to explore. (For the record, ‘Kaiko’ was the name of the robot submersible that explored Challenger Deep – the deepest ocean point on Earth – in 1995.)

We want Kaiko to be the bitcoin industry’s data barometer.

Whatever you need to know about this amazing new scene, whatever data you need to crunch to find positions and uncover trends, it’ll be available here.

Kaiko serves all industry participants, from investors and traders all the way to consumers and even beginners. We have a bitcoin price index (the Kaiko Index), market feeds from major exchanges, and a detailed blockchain explorer. There’s also live block size and mining data, plus various charts to show bitcoin's finer details like average transaction fees and volumes.

Live data feeds will be available for anyone to use via open API access.

For newcomers who might find bitcoin’s various concepts a bit daunting at first, there’s plenty of material to explain what all the different charts mean and how to use the information.

Key Feature Details

Founder and CEO Pascal Gauthier:

"A solid data foundation is mandatory in any industry. No-one can act without it. What kind of business to launch, where to position it, what time is right, etc. A solid data foundation is mandatory before making any of these decisions."

The statistics Kaiko offers are some of the digital currency and blockchain industry’s most useful. A live price index shows an average of bitcoin’s current value in three of the most-traded currencies (USD, CNY and EUR). The Kaiko Index includes the large China-based exchanges to find a true global average price.

For traders, more detailed charts display the differing prices at various exchanges. And as an accurate indicator of true trading volumes, there’s an advanced order book visualization (including order history) for each platform.

The blockchain visualizer shows the exact time and size of each block, with a mempool guide to show how much transaction data is included in each.

As well as bitcoin-related stats, Kaiko also features new charts showing the effects of non-bitcoin applications and assets on the blockchain – such as CounterParty, Eternity Wall and Factom. These stats also indicate levels of popularity and interest in these alternative blockchain use cases, as side-industries develop.

For now, Kaiko’s blockchain and exchange APIs are open and free to use.

Looking for more data experts

Kaiko is headquartered in London, with a research and development team located in Paris. We are currently recruiting, and seeking bitcoin-enthusiast engineers and data analysts to expand its team.

Kaiko is also a proud sponsor of the Scaling Bitcoin 2015 event in Hong Kong, 6-7 December 2015. We want this industry to flourish and are glad to support the talented people taking it to the next level.

Why we're proud to be sponsoring the Scaling Bitcoin event in Hong Kong this week:

https://medium.com/p/7cd48c0ba05f/


Kaiko: Helping Bitcoin Into the Future

We’re off to Hong Kong this weekend for a first-hand preview of bitcoin’s future.

The Scaling Bitcoin 2015 event is all about gathering the industry’s finest minds in one place — to discuss how bitcoin can make the leap to the next level. We’re proud to be one of the event sponsors.

Can bitcoin scale and grow? How will it be used? Can it stay decentralized? Secure and private? Can it deliver economic opportunity to all? We rely on technical developers, academics, businesses and policy-makers to show us the next moves.

Also, it’s in Hong Kong. More about that in a moment.

Ongoing series of events

This week’s event is actually Phase Two of a concept that began in Montreal, Canada last September. That first event set the scene, started people thinking of ways bitcoin could scale to meet potential future demand.

This second phase, held in Hong Kong to encourage participation from major stakeholders like China-based miners, will look in particular at the various ‘block size’ solutions and how to accommodate them.

Our hope, along with others’, is that discussions will result in proposals that will have consensus support — ending the divisive and distracting nature of recent arguments that have not helped bitcoin’s image in the wider world.

What can Kaiko do?

As well as financially supporting Scaling Bitcoin, we’ll be looking for ways we can build Kaiko to suit the bitcoin industry’s needs as it grows.

What information does it need most, how often, and in what form? What can we show miners about the state of the network? What do traders and exchanges need to know every second? Can we give major investors and everyday consumers a broad overview of the landscape, and details on their preferred segment?

We’ll be meeting with reps from different sectors of the bitcoin economy to get better answers to these questions. Kaiko is already thorough and easy to use — but we want it to be the most comprehensive data source the bitcoin industry knows.

Then there’s Asia

Scaling Bitcoin is significant for two reasons. Firstly, there are tough questions facing bitcoin and these are the right people to be answering them.

Secondly, it’s happening in the heart of Asia. Asia has some of the world’s most important financial centers, of which Hong Kong is one. Jurisdictions in Asia have shown they have both the will and governance to take the next step in financial technology, and use it to create prosperity.

Asia understands technology and it understands money. Perhaps better than most other places. Holding the event in Hong Kong acknowledges this, and acknowledges China’s unique role in building and maintaining the bitcoin backbone.

Kaiko joins 24 companies sponsoring the event, with others coming from all corners of the bitcoin ecosystem: exchanges, miners, software developers and FinTech companies.

Unofficially it is already launched, so anyone can use it – please send any feedback if you have it.

It's still a work in progress. We're working on several ways to add useful content and make it a one-stop shop for all bitcoin data/information.

Stay tuned...

Will you be adding GBP conversion, most of us in the UK don't use that € c**p.
