In recent years, there has been a growing public interest in blockchain technology along with the buzzword fintech on google trends. One of the most successful examples using blockchain is the cryptocurrency bitcoin. Bitcoin does not depend on a central agency as does the conventional legal tender, but because it can perform highly anonymous transactions across borders, it has created a new mechanism for business activities. At the same time, the possibility of its misuse, such as money laundering and financing for anti-social groups, has been pointed out. Accordingly, its treatment differs from country to country. It still has problems even though it has already been implemented in society, e.g. one of bitcoin’s main former developers says that mining is carried out by some people.

In this work, visualization to study blockchain and an automated trading system have been developed and displayed.
