Follow the money trail using theTangle.org as an explorer
With the recent incident, it is not recommended to open Trinity, but a lot of people are scared and want to check if their funds are still safe. If you have a copy of the address your funds are on then this is as easy as entering it into a tangle explorer, but if you don’t then this article will describe how to follow the money trail and get your answer. Personally, I (HBMY289 on Iota Discord) was asked a few times to help with this process and it seems that many users do not know how to navigate in a tangle explorer. Thus I wrote this very short article to help other users with that.
Where to start?
First, you will need a point to start. For most people, this means checking up with the exchange where you withdrew the funds. Log in there and look for the withdrawal history. It will show you dates and transaction hashes.
Let’s assume you find an entry that says you withdrew 685.45 Mi on Oct 29th, 2018. The details of the entry show a transaction ID / hash.
