Abstract: Cryptocurrency also referred as virtual currency is a digital asset which is used as a medium of exchange using high level cryptography. After the introduction of Bitcoin, hundreds of alternate cryptocurrencies started emerging and so did the need to analyse them. As of September 2017, there were over 1100 digital currencies in existence. We investigate the use of data mining techniques in analysing and predicting attributes like Volume, Market Cap. The cryptocurrency has many parameters like Open, High, Low, Close whose values are highly volatile and change every day. On available data set collected between 2013 and 2017 we perform Machine Learning algorithm and predict the values for Market Cap and various other attributes. This paper develops a model using linear regression to predict the future values which can be useful in many ways in determining the market behaviour.
Keywords: cryptocurrency, Bitcoin.
