Aping blockchain.info Bitcoin explorer

11 June 2016 – OneCoin “Founder and Visionary” Ruja Ignatova during the CoinRush Event in London (@OneCoinCrypto – Official OneCoin Twitter account and YouTube link)

Note: the authors of this website have nothing to do with Bitcoin and we don’t promote it. We do, however, believe that Ruja Ignatova’s claim that OneCoin is the “Bitcoin killer” is ridiculous, because Bitcoin is a real cryptocurrency, while OneCoin is a scam by design with a fake Blockchain Simulator.

Despite Ruja’s nonsensical claim, the developers of the OneCoin Blockchain Simulator software applied themselves diligently to their task to make a Blockchain viewer/explorer which looked credible. They decided to copy 90% of the components of the Bitcoin explorer on blockchain.info.

This is a screenshot of Bitcoin Block #472963 that you could view via hyperlink blockchain.info/block/0000000000000000007481888542d4632e8555e61dd76a1cbdedde936262c242, that is partly visible in the screenshot.
Note: the Bitcoin Blockchain explorer on blockchain.info has been migrated to blockchain.com/btc. This is the new hyperlink to Bitcoin Block #472963

All Bitcoin Blockchain explorer elements and features which have been used on the OneCoin Blockchain Simulator screens (currently or in the past) are marked by a blue rectangular.

Compare this with the screenshots of OneCoin Block #336967 (login required). 100% of the data elements and features are copied from blockchain.info / blockchain.com.

This is a screenshot of OneCoin Block #0 (the genesis block) of OneCoin Blockchain Simulator Version 2 in the old layout that was used until 5 December 2016. Hyperlinks to individual Transactions were not visible in that period (“TRANSACTIONS COMING SOON”).


  1. The “UTC” indication after the timestamp complies with our findings that Block creation timestamps are recorded and displayed in the GMT/UTC time-zone.
  2. The DIFFICULTY aka Mining Difficulty was still visible in this layout until 5 December 2016, but has been deleted from the new layout.

This is a screenshot with the old layout of Block #37295 of OneCoin Blockchain Simulator Version 1 (active until 30 September 2016).


  1. Difficulty, Bits and Size were visible in that period.
  2. These data are not accessible anymore, i.e. hyperlinks with these “hash” values are invalid.
