Bitcoin prices are heating up again and so is the planet. You may be curious about how much of the hype is true. Is cryptocurrency really a major carbon offender? How do the different coins stack up?
We decided to release a sneak preview of the Lotus Trader software suite ahead of schedule, to give greater insight into these issues. This market trends visualization shows market values for 2058 cryptocurrencies in real time. It also helps you estimate the CO2 emissions from your trading, and gives you tools to quickly and easily offset your carbon cost. We will be adding further resources and updates throughout the fall.

Knowing that holiday travel and gatherings could be a dangerous vector for the virus to spread, we worked hard to reach influencers and get the word out among our base. We believe that data science can change the world and save lives.
Lotus.fm produced these visualizations as Public Service Announcements to accompany the Giving Map: our ongoing initiative for grassroots philanthropy in the areas of the US hardest hit by the pandemic. The PSA animations are available for download and reuse in GIF and MP4 formats, under a Creative Commons license. Please contact us if you require a different resolution or format, or would like to request a time lapse for a specific time period or geographic area.

“What actionable data does is take a measurable, quantifiable data set and connect it to specific calls to action. In essence, it presents you with new information and instead of leaving you to mull (or stew) it provides you with ways to respond. The goal is always to empower users.”
