BitcoinChain is a Bitcoin network blockchain explorer that provides real-time data on the state of the Bitcoin network. On top of the homepage is a search bar where users can search for addresses, blocks, and transactions. The homepage has metrics on the price, market capitalisation, supply, and volume of Bitcoin. There is also information on the latest blocks and the transactions. Users can also see market trades occurring on different exchanges which many explorers do not include along with information on different mining pools. Users can also subscribe via their email to be updated with data analytics.
On top of the homepage, users can access different pages with further information on the block explorer, markets, pools, and nodes. There is also a general information page where users are provided with a Beginners guide, technology-related vocabulary, and an FAQ page. The markets page provides data on many of the major Bitcoin markets priced in different fiat currencies. Fiat currencies include USD, EUR, GBP, CNY, RUB, and Ethereum priced against Bitcoin. The markets information includes charting of price data, trades printing, and an orderbook. The pools and nodes page include data and visualization on the state of mining pools and nodes. Users can filter the data and there are also links if users would like to delve further.
