Princeton University technology students recently conducted and published several studies on digital commodities. MinCoin, Bitcoin and Litecoin where just a few that received focus and attention. Only a select few Altcoins were used in this digital commodity study, one of which being MinCoin. Looking at simple blockchain data along with price fluctuations and transaction volume Princeton University technology students attempt to draw several measured conclusions about coin generation, origin and the players involved in certain market movements.
