Piotr Stolarski , Włodzimierz Lewoniewski
AbstractThe paper is an initial study that aims to analyze relations between Wikipedia as an unbiased source of information and cryptocurrency technologies. The purpose of the research is to explore how diversified decentralized cash systems are presented and characterized in the largest open-source knowledge base. Additionally, the interactions between information demand in different language versions are elaborated. A model is proposed that allows to assess the adoption of cryptocurrencies in a given country on the basis of the mentioned knowledge. The results can be used not only for the analysis of popularity of blockchain technologies in different local communities, but also can show which country has the biggest demand on particular cryptocurrency, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, Monero, Litecoin, Dogecoin and other.
