A Dead Simple Block Explorer for Bitcoin Newcoiners

Coin Ninja is very excited to announce our recently revamped Block Explorer and News Portal, accessible on Coinninja.com.

We redesigned our blockexplorer in an effort to help meet our company goal:

Turning NOcoiners into NEWcoiners into everyday Bitcoin users.

TLDR

  • Made for Newcoiners who just need the basics
  • Most important stats right up front (price, current fees, current average confirmation time)
  • Transactions look like receipt to help them understand why to search a transaction on a blockchain
  • Easy to understand incoming transaction viewer

Let's get in to the details…

Our strategy behind the block explorer design and user experience was simple – make it much more inviting and less intimidating to newcoiners.

While many other block explorers are well done for experienced crypto enthusiasts, they are overly complex for the masses to understand. The abundance of information coupled with the crypt-nomenclature is enough to scare away anyone who's just trying to verify the status of a transaction.

Initial View: Stripping down to just the Essential Information

Each piece of data associated with transactions — fees, hash rate, difficulty, block height etc are all important and informative, but to the lay person first taking a look at it’s altogether confusing. We want people to come to our block explorer and have a simplified view of only the basic details of a transaction, all organized in a modular, receipt like view that people are familiar with:

  • Transaction status
  • Time stamp
  • Amount sent
  • Fee associated with the transaction

Of course, we want power users to be able to get the insights they need as well, so tucked one click/tap away in the advanced view includes:

  • Block height
  • Confirmations
  • Inputs/Outputs
  • Fee calculation inputs

By not showing these details on initial view, we won't scare away newcoiners, but we'll also serve the existing Bitcoin community with expandable details on each transaction. We'll continue to listen to feedback to see if we've hit the mark on the balance of simplicity and just the right amount of detail.

Additional Features

In addition, we have displayed some very high level stats about the Bitcoin blockchain that are easily consumable but helpful for people to learn and understand. These include:

  • Cost to send
  • Average transaction time
  • Pending transactions
  • Blocks Mined
  • A Bitcoin Calculator (allow users to input a BTC value and see the equivalent $USD value calculation)
  • A fun transaction viewer that updates every second with a visual showing how active the Bitcoin network is and the amounts that are being transacted in

And of course, there are still several helpful resources that users can explore (videos, infographics, and news articles) as well.

Please take a look and let us know what you think – Coinninja.com. We'd love to hear feedback to continue to try to bring more people into the crypto space.
