I am a computer science master student at York University, Toronto, Canada. My thesis is about Exploring the scalability, throughput and security characteristics of the Tangle through simulation analysis. I have already implemented a Tangle simulator using Java and currently I am validating this simulator. I was wondering if you can provide me with some real data(statistics) of the Tangle which I can use for validating my simulator. Right now, the only data I have are the theories mentioned in the tangle whitepaper (about number of tips which oscillates around a constant value and cumulative weight which is exponential at first and gets linear thereafter for a high-load network). In fact, my simulator is valid based on these theories. However, I was wondering if I can test it with some real data. I really appreciate your help.
