A list of all Bitcoin forks and a simple way to check an address for any coins

in bitcoin •  6 months ago

I recently stumbled upon this free and simple tool to check a bitcoin address to see if it has any other coins from the various forks on it


I'm not affiliated with this site in any way, I just think it's a great resource worth sharing. These are the forks it will check for you..

If you have other coins on the address you get a result like this:

Pretty cool right?

I used http://bitref.com to check each address for BTC (you could also use http://blockchain.info) and moved any BTC balances to a new address before using the private key to redeem a different currency. It's also a good idea to cross reference the results.

Its too late for most coins but if people have a large amount of bitcoin it would be good to try to squeeze out all of their fork money.

Cool!! Thanks for sharing @dan-wilson. I didn't know that I can check my btc address.

Awesome! I'll sure check on this.


Thanks Alex
