Blockpath is an accounting tool, wallet tracker, and a block explorer with several unique features and integrations to simplify working with blockchain data.

The most popular features are the interactive graphical block explorer, and the first QuickBooks App integration to sync Bitcoin transactions and capital gains into QuickBooks Online.

Blockpath fully supports bech32 address formats and xPub/yPub/zPub extended public key formats.

Wallet Watcher[edit]

A watch-only wallet for tracking your Bitcoins. The wallet supports adding multiple addresses and/or extended public keys, sorting them into different accounts, and custom labeling of each address. The Overview tab shows the summary and transactions, and can be quickly filtered by account or inputs/outputs.

Blockpath is one of the only tools that allows transaction values to be displayed as the historical fiat value at the time of transaction, or in the current fiat value. Additionally, the value shown for each transaction is the sum of all the user's addresses in the transaction.

The watch-only wallet can be saved locally on the user's device, or on Blockpath's servers. Furthermore, the data can be protected with AES password encryption performed locally on the user's device.

Discuss and Share Bitcoin Transactions[edit]

Users can aggregate Bitcoin addresses and transactions, label them with descriptions, and start a discussion with the community about the data.

Integrations[edit]

QuickBooks Sync[edit]

Blockpath can connect a QuickBooks Online account and automatically sync your Bitcoin transactions and capital gains reports into QuickBooks. Assign each of your addresses to a QuickBooks account to organize transactions, and view the cumulative balance and value in your home currency with current exchange rates synced with QuickBooks each day.

  • Incoming transactions are categorized as Income, and an Invoice+Payment from a Bitcoin customer is created in QuickBooks with the correct Bitcoin value and exchange rate.
  • Outgoing transactions are categorized as Exchange Sales, and the multiple capital gains acquire -> sale entries are created within QuickBooks. The USD proceeds from the sale are conveniently transferred to a USD account for additional accounting.
  • The tool automatically detects transfers between accounts and tracks the blockchain fees for transfers.

Blockpath also includes a reconciliation tool that compares QuickBooks data against actual Blockchain data to ensure your accounts are accurate. Any missing transactions can be automatically repaired with the tool.

Tax Prep[edit]

This tool handles all crypto currencies, over 120 exchanges, and unlimited trades, with a focus on privacy: all the tax calculations and data sourcing occurs directly in your browser! None of your trade history, API exchange keys, or tax reports ever touch Blockpath's servers.

Xero Sync[edit]

Coming Soon! This app will sync your Bitcoin transactions directly into Xero, offering all of the benefits that our QuickBooks integration provides. Please send us an email to be alerted when it is complete.

Excel Export[edit]

Export all transactions currently loaded in your wallet/search page into an Excel format. It will include columns detailing each of your addresses that were involved, along with the value transferred for each of them. If you have any tag labels on a transaction, they will also be shown in the 'Tags' column as well.

Email Notifications[edit]

Get an email notification whenever a transaction into or out of your Bitcoin addresses occurs. To use: Create a watch-only wallet, add your addresses into an account, and enable email notifications for the account from the integrations tab.

Tools[edit]

xPub Analyzer[edit]

Automatically scans through over 3915 address within different derivation paths to find current balance of all used addresses in all paths. You can also generate as many addresses as you'd like, and export them as text for use in other applications.

Supports xPub + yPub + zPub extended public key formats.

Graphical Explorer[edit]

A fully featured graphical block explorer that maps the relations between addresses or transactions as links between nodes. The user can expand nodes to load more addresses/transactions, undo/redo changes, save the data to a private wallet, or share the data with others. It has two modes to organize the data:

Address Mode[edit]

  • Nodes represent addresses, and a link means bitcoin has been transferred between them at some point.
  • Useful for viewing long-term relations between addresses.

Transaction Mode[edit]

  • Nodes represent transactions, and links are the inputs and outputs of each transaction.
  • Useful for viewing the movement of bitcoins over time.

Currency Converter[edit]

Convert between Bitcoin, mBTC, uBTC, Satoshis, US Dollar, Chinese Yuan, Japanese Yen, Pound Sterling, Euro, Thai Baht, and Canadian Dollar. By default the app rounds to the currency's typical decimal precision, but you can toggle this to show up to 8 decimals for more precision.

Create QR Code[edit]

This app helps you create a Bitcoin QR code you can save and display on social media, a website, or physically print it to easily accept donations and payments to your Bitcoin address.

The app settings allow you to generate the QR code in any size of pixels, and optionally set a desired value amount in the QR code that will be presented when a user scans it. The value amount can be set in any currency. Please be aware: For non-Bitcoin values, the current BTC exchange rate is used to create the QR code, however this value will fluctuate in the future.

Bitcoin Price Chart[edit]

A simple Bitcoin price history chart developed using Plotly.js.

Verify Bitcoin Signed Message[edit]

Verify the signature of a message that has been signed by a public Bitcoin address.
