Bitcoin Statcraft (BTCSC) is a dynamic minecraft environment generated using realtime bitcoin market information.
All of these bitcoin block stacks are accurate piles based on (at the time the video was made) current information regarding the bitcoin market.
Towards the end of the video you’ll see me programmatically build the stack of gold, based on the current price of gold in USD and the current bitcoin market cap, also in USD. A script does the calculation and figures out how large that gold pile would be, in real life (m^3), and builds the blocks to match.
This is a first version of the thing, with more planned moving forward. Thanks for taking the time to check it out.
