Google Expands Wallet Address Search Functionality to Bitcoin, Fantom, Arbitrum, and More

Google Wallet Search

Google has introduced new functionality allowing users to search blockchain data on various networks, including Bitcoin, Arbitrum, Avalanche, Optimism, Polygon, and Fantom. This expansion enables users to search for wallet addresses and view their balances directly within Google search results.

When users type in wallet addresses, Google displays the remaining token balance in the wallet for each supported network, along with the timestamp indicating the last time the balance was updated. It’s important to note that balances only show the native token for each network, and the displayed balance reflects the state of the wallet as of the last external transaction. Updates to balances are not instantaneous.

This recent update builds upon Google’s previous support for Ethereum wallet balance searches, which began last May. Initially, Google enabled users to search for specific public addresses on the Ethereum network and view the wallet balance directly in the search results. Additionally, earlier this month, Google started showing search results for wallet balances when users searched for Ethereum Name Service (ENS) domains. ENS provides readable domain names for Ethereum wallet addresses, facilitating easier identification and navigation within the Ethereum ecosystem.

Google’s expansion of wallet address search functionality reflects the growing interest in blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. By providing users with easy access to blockchain data directly through its search engine, Google is helping to enhance accessibility and transparency within the crypto space.
