Regulations in Cryptocurrency : Interview with Mike Cowans from CipherTrace ②
We don’t just build a big data platform. We have to have the engines needed to figure out the algorithm in order to process the data in a very accurate and efficient way. It does require a lot of data from a lot of data sources. When you start to take in and adjust that amount of data and try to get some perspective of, it becomes a challenge. Every week CipherTrace is taking in 1.5 to 2 million data points, and this has been going on for the past 5 and half years. The data is still accumulating and piling up as we are talking now. The data will continue to compile, so you really get an idea of how much there is to process.
