Hello all,

I struggled a lot with the fact that you cannot view your addresses and their balances easily.
If you want a overview you needed your wallet.dat file to access your Bitcoin client to check your balance.

I present you:





What is BtcBalance?

BtcBalance is a service wich you can use to store your Bitcoin addresses to view their balance and latest received payments. You can add up to 20 addresses to your account and make as many accounts as you want. So if you're at school or work for instance and don't have access to your Bitcoin wallet, then you can add your addresses to your BtcBalance account and view their status. You will not have to fill in anything but your address, it automatically parses the data from the blockexplorer API. BtcBalance is also connected to the Mtgox API wich shows you what all addresses on your BtcBalance account are worth in dollars or euro's. You can use this service any time you want without having to pay a single dime.

Is it save?

The BtcBalance database is worthless since it contains data that is not worth a penny. This is because the information about a Bitcoin address can be retrieved from the network itself by anyone. And to preserve the anonymity Bitcoin offers, you can not directly register with a nickname. You will login with a login code instead of a nickname, wich makes you pretty much anonymous. Do you feel uncomfortable to login with a login code you cannot remember, then you can always add a additional nickname to login with.

You can create a account each hour.

Any feedback or bug reports are welcome.

Thanks

Worthless?  Your server holds a list of wallet balances and the IP addresses they are at.   Shocked

But how can you know that the address that you put in is bound to that IP?
You could also put in another address that is not yours.

Also, the hashed IP table is not connected to the address table in any way since they are only used to check if you already created a account in the past hour.

Does this know transactions that have been announced but not yet included in a block?
 e.g., similar to those found in http://www.bitcoincharts.com/bitcoin

Well, its using the Blockexplorer API thats what I know.
So I guess it doesn't parse the transactions that are not in the recent block yet.

It doesn't matter to me if there isn't a 1:1 link.  Someone hacks into your database, or your web server, and they have a nice list of IP addresses to direct hack efforts.

Really though, whomever cracked mtgox back when, already has much information about all the richest bitcoin holders as they will ever need. I assume they are all being stealthily attacked as we speak.

Certainly people should know that this issue exists. But it's really no big deal. Unless they're running the client and accept inbound connections, there's not much you can do with the IP address anyway. If if they're running the client and accept inbound connections, you can find their IP address anyway.

No they don't. After the hack, the reason Mtgox needed our financial information for verification was because the hacker did not have access to this data.

Well good luck then.
Almost every website you register saves your IP that IS connected to your address and whatsoever.
Keep in mind that there is no reason for any hacker to take the afford to crack the hashed IP's.
There is no reason for any hacker to publish an IP list wich isn't connected to anything.

Your password is being triple hashed and is almost impossible to crack.
And if they cracked it in some way, (wich will take many years for each account to crack one password) they cannot connect your password to any entity since the addresses can be from anybody.

This is fantastic. I've been wanting something like this for awhile now.

But, yeah, I would definitely consider trashing the IPs. I wouldn't keep IPs in a log either. A service like this shouldn't even need logins or passwords (since the data is all available in blockexplorer anyway). I'd just let someone enter a bunch of addresses and then give them a unique URL to access them at. Since it's read-only, it's ultimately sort of like a URL shortener.

Sweet! Take care.

Thanks for your reply.
Yeah its true I should't collect any data.
But to prevent spamming people I need to register something (IP's) for a while.
There is a cronjob on the server now wich deletes all IP's saved in to the register table.

Yes thank you.
I am aware the whole website is not grammar correct yet.
Maybe this sentence above isn't correct either.
Excuse me for being Dutch.  Cool

I understand that people are worrying since all the hacking happening these days.
But yeah, there is not much to worry about since hackers cannot use hashed ip's wich aren't connected to anything.
I mean this forum also registers your IP FYI.

Javascript is turned on, no errors in the console Sad

EDIT: In privacy mode is does work so I'm guessing one of my Chrome add-ons is messing up your site and it looks like LastPass is causing it.
