We present a systematic review of visual analytics tools used for the analysis of blockchain data. The blockchain technology has recently received considerable attention and spurred applications in a variety of domains. We collected 76 blockchain visualization sources and proposed a classification scheme to group those visualizations. Our classification distinguishes: (1) target blockchain, (2) blockchain data, (3) target audiences, (4) task domains, and (5) visualization types. Furthermore, we look at research opportunities and open challenges in blockchain visualization.

Abstract

We present a systematic review of visual analytics tools used for the analysis of blockchains-related data. The blockchain concept has recently received considerable attention and spurred applications in a variety of domains. We systematically and quantitatively assessed 76 analytics tools that have been proposed in research as well as online by professionals and blockchain enthusiasts. Our classification of these tools distinguishes (1) target blockchains, (2) blockchain data, (3) target audiences, (4) task domains, and (5) visualization types. Furthermore, we look at which aspects of blockchain data have already been explored and point out areas that deserve more investigation in the future.
