BCH.gg Provides Stats About Shortened Links
BCH.gg is an easy to use online tool developed by the crypto market stats and charting data website Coinsalad.com for the Bitcoin Cash community. Its main purpose is to address the need for a URL shortener, generating links that can be shared for example on Memo and Blockpress, two social media platforms using the Bitcoin Cash network.
By incorporating BCH in the new URLs, the website promotes the cryptocurrency which has seen rapid development of applications and services in the past two years. To shorten a link you need to first paste the original one into the “Enter URL” box. Then you have to click “I’m not a robot” and the “Shorten URL” button.
The website will generate your new link which starts with https://bch.gg/ followed by a unique ID that can be a short number or a combination of letters and digits. Saving your custom link ID will allow you to later look it up and pull statistical data such as the number of clicks, the country they originate from and the date when it was created.
The platform will also give you a “Quick Share” text containing the BCH.gg link and a brief description or the title of the article you are linking. You can share it directly on Facebook and Twitter using the dedicated buttons or copy it to post it elsewhere. The website displays a list of the recently shortened ULRs and the most popular BCH.gg links.
Bitcoin.com is a major source of information about all things Bitcoin Cash. On our news page, News.Bitcoin.com, you’ll find many posts you may want to share with other BCH fans, including articles covering the latest developments related to Bitcoin Cash including new apps and services facilitating the use of BCH.
