Graphs, Algorithms And Top XRP Accounts

By applying a well-known graph algorithm to the XRP ledger data, we look at the top 10 XRP accounts by page rank over the past years.

PageRank is named after Google co-founder Larry Page and is used to rank websites by their importance and quality. Simplified, this is done by assuming that the more links there are to a website, the more important it is, while the more links there are from a website, the less important is.

Algorithms like this can be applied to any relational data, and while the PageRank algorithm locates central nodes in the network, other algorithms are used to find shortest paths, clusters (sub-networks), similarities between nodes and more. READ MORE ON: FORBES
