Just for fun I started gathering IPs reported by bitcoin clients and make a database of unique ips and test which ones are live, which ones are not.

Since there are ~1200 bitcoin connected to the irc channel I was assuming to find a similar value, but right now I'm still querying nodes and got over 6000 nodes (for now about 25% are accepting inbound connections).

Anyway since it's probably not telling you much, I transformed the ips in coordinates, and made a google kml file anyone can see in google maps (suggested by slush_cz)

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=https://smsz.net/btcStats/bitcoin.kml

UPDATE: Now the node color on google maps tells you if that node accept connections or not.
  • GREEN means the node has its firewall correctly configured and accept connections from other nodes
  • RED means we were unable to connect to the node (it is either down, or do not accept connections)
  • WHITE means the node is still in the queue, and will be checked soon
UPDATE 2: Now only nodes I heared about from other nodes within the last 3 hours are taken into account. The other nodes are excluded from the map and other stats (except versions)

You can also have a (json) overview of bitcoin versions across the network: https://smsz.net/btcStats/version (yep, still some 0.3.0 around)


PS: another json feed: https://smsz.net/btcStats/accepting ("up" nodes are node accepting connections from outside, "rate_accepting" is the current ratio between nodes accepting and not accepting connections)

I am surprised the US capital have some concentration of bitcoin nodes. I don't know what that implies exactly. Maybe it's because internet connection is concentrated there?

That is quite possible, because I live about 200 km away from Dublin, yet my connection on the map is shown as Dublin.

Very awesome!

If anyone wishes to tag a marker, there is the collaborative Bitcoin Map:
  http://www.bitcoinmap.com

Yes, it is Flash based.  The data is stored in KML though so it can be viewed with Google Maps:

MTux, make the dots bigger. I want to post this on a forum but you can hardly notice some points.

It means nodes that had not been tested for whether or not they accept connections. Red mean down, green mean up, according to MT.

And "down" means that either the node is down (and will be removed within 24 hours) or that it's not accepting connections from outside (in which case it will be kept here, but in status "down", until its ip changes)

so if someone is running the client in a location, what does the color show if:
* the client is running with "generate" turned off?
* the client is running with "generate" turned on?
* the client is NOT running at all?

Asia seems really underrepresented.

I would have expected more in Japan especially, given the number of internet users.

For comparison:

and

* the client is running with "generate" turned off?
* the client is running with "generate" turned on?
* the client is NOT running at all?

We cannot know if a given client is currently generating.

However if the client is NOT running at all, the dot is red (and disappear within 3 hours)
