A lot of times while writing for CryptoCoinsNews, we stumble upon some really cool cryptocurrency-related websites that we would like to share with our readers. This new weekly segment, CCN Websites of the Week, is our way of serving these sites to you. Like most people, you’re probably tired at the end of the week and don’t want to do too much reading, so we’ll keep the information brief and on point. We hope you’ll enjoy this new weekly series.

Cryptonator

A fantastic new cryptocurrency rate converter and calculator

Cryptonator is a fantastic new cryptocurrency rate calculator and conversion tool. Not only is it beautifully designed, but it also offers incredibly precise rates. The site synchronises with all the major exchanges every minute, and averages prices by trade volume. Furthermore, it supports all the popular cryptocoins such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Dogecoin, as well as more obscure coins such as Alphacoin and MasterCoin.

blockr

blockr is a nicely designed multicoin blockchain explorer.

When it comes to exploring the Bitcoin blockchain, most people rely on Blockchain.info. However, blockr is a great alternative that not only looks nicer, but also supports Litecoin, DigitalCoin, Quark, and Peercoin. The site also has an interesting Trivia section where you can check out things like addresses in alphabetical order and addresses with the most transactions.

Coinalytics

Coinalytics promises to “make sense of big-data through a real-time analytics tool for Bitcoin.”

Coinalytics promises to “make sense of big-data through a real-time analytics tool for Bitcoin.” At the moment it’s not even available to the public, but you can sign up for early access to a service that definitely looks promising.

BitcoinRichList

Write in envy when you see just how rich some of the richest Bitcoin addresses are.

Writhe in envy when you see just how rich some of the richest Bitcoin addresses are. At number 1, we have 1FfmbHfnpaZjKFvyi1okTjJJusN455paPH with a whopping 144,341.52463170 BTC. If you didn’t already guess, these are the millions of dollars worth of Bitcoins seized by the FBI after the Silk Road shutdown.

bitcoinaddress.js

“simplified Bitcoin payment user interaction”

If you’re looking for an incredibly simple way to accept Bitcoin payments, look no further. bitcoinaddress.js is an easy-to-use JavaScript library “for simplified Bitcoin payment user interaction.”

LiteShack

LiteShack tracks scrypt hashrates for all scrypt-based coins.

I can only imagine what I pain it must have been to code this website. LiteShack tracks scrypt hashrates for all scrypt-based coins. It’s definitely a neat visualisation of the network.

That concludes this week’s segment. Be sure to check back next Saturday for our hand-picked selection of Websites of the Week, and if you happen to find an interesting site you think deserves to be featured, email me at neil.sardesai@cryptocoinsnews.com.
