Blockchain technology has the potential to be applied in a variety of areas of our daily life. Blockchain is the foundation of cryptocurrency, but the applications of blockchain technology are much more expansive. This
technology is considered to be a revolutionary solution for the financial industry. Also, it can be successfully applied in scenarios involving data validation, auditing, and sharing. On the other hand, machine learning is
one of the most noticeable technologies in recent years. Both technologies are data-driven, and thus there are rapidly growing interests in integrating them for more secure and efficient data sharing and analysis. This paper
shows how these two technologies, blockchain and machine learning, can be combined in predicting bitcoin volatility. To analyze and predict bitcoin volatility, bitcoin data from real-time series and random forests as a machine learning algorithm were used. When predicting bitcoin volatility,
low statistical errors were obtained in the training and test set. This confirms that the forecasting model is well designed.
