Ethereum’s popularity steadily increases in 2020. Every day 6.5 thousand blocks are created, 1.2 million transactions are conducted, and the total number of addresses has reached 110 million. The ERC-20 standard tokens alone are now sent in the amount of 770 thousand daily.

All operations are registered in the public blockchain. If you want to know what is going on in the Ethereum network, start using a blockchain explorer. This useful tool will conveniently present detailed information on blocks, transactions, addresses, and popular tokens operating on Ethereum.

What is a blockchain explorer

It is a search engine in the world of cryptocurrencies that assists in searching for information in a blockchain. It helps to observe the operation of wallets and check their balance and inward/outward transactions. They are added to blocks as records, and these blocks are connected to a chain afterwards. Surely, the explorer displays the contents of each block.

A lot of crypto projects that are based on a public blockchain and use a coin for settlements have their official explorers. They can also be encountered as a functional section on independent websites about cryptocurrencies. For instance, here at CoinCap, we have two of them: for the Bitcoin blockchain and this one — for Ethereum.

Why use Ethereum explorer

It is useful for obtaining current and valid information from the Ethereum blockchain. Everybody uses it for their purposes. If you are a cryptocurrency user, an investor, a trader, a buyer or seller of goods for ethers, the blockchain explorer will help you:

  • check the address validity and balance, both yours and your contractor’s;

  • see the list of inward and outward operations;

  • learn when and for what amounts transactions have been conducted via an address;

  • learn transaction status that you conducted or wait for and which block it is included into.

If you are a miner, a developer, or an enthusiast, in addition to this information, the Ethereum blockchain explorer will be interesting for you for the extended data:

  • network status, i.e., its difficulty and number of created blocks;

  • summary data on any block added to a chain, i.e., time, size, number and the total amount of included transactions;

  • detailed information on transfers of ERC-20 tokens;

  • data on transactions conducted via a specific smart contract.

All of this could be useful and even necessary for work. Such data could be found neither in lightweight wallets nor in fully-fledged clients, although they contain the same blockchain.

Why our Ethereum block explorer is useful

Most probably, as a user and network participant, you have a certain request for a search box. That is, you know some address, transaction’s hash, or block’s height (number) — so, enter any of them in the first field and click ‘Search.’

Under the search form, you will find four rectangles with important indicators: ether price, network’s difficulty, the total number of blocks, and a safe gas price.

Then three different lists are displayed. They are switched by clicking on respective tab links:

  1. Top 10 ERC-20 tokens with the largest trading volume. Each item has a price and a trading volume for 24 hours. Each name leads to a respective page of a smart contract.

  2. Ten latest chain blocks. Each item has a height, generation time, number of included transactions, and size in bytes. Each height leads to a respective page.

  3. Ten latest validated transactions. Each item has a hash, time of conduction, amount in ETH and its USD equivalent. Each hash leads to a respective page.

Data of contracts and blocks

Click on any displayed tokens — a page with its smart contract will open. It contains all summary data: the contract’s address, the total supply of tokens, the price for a unit in US dollars. Then follows a table with a descending list of transactions, each of them having: hash, block height, validation time, sender’s address, recipient’s address, and the value of tokens. Hashes of transactions and addresses can be clicked on. You can click them to go to the respective pages.

Click on one of the latest blocks or enter any height (not exceeding the most recent) in the search bar — a page with details about the block will open. There are summary data: the number of transactions, the total amount of ethers, the generation time, the size, and the hash. Also, there are two tab links: switching between them displays two similar tables.

The first contains a list of ETH transactions with an indication of their hash, sender’s and recipient’s addresses, and the amount of sent ETH. Hashes of transactions and addresses are clickable too.

The second contains a list of transfers of ERC-20 tokens with the indication of the transaction hash, sender’s and recipient’s addresses, as well as the number and name of tokens. Please note: the list contains the names of the tokens that are not awarded the top 10 in terms of trading volume. You can go to their pages this way, i.e., through the list of transfers included in the blocks.

To get to the contract page of any ERC-20 token, you can use a bypass. For a token that has one word in its name, open the URL like https://coin-cap.pro/en/contract/augur/ (the Augur name becomes the /augur/ subfolder in this example). For a token that has several words in its name, open the URL like https://coin-cap.pro/en/contract/unus-sed-leo/ (the name UNUS SED LEO becomes the /unus-sed-leo/ subfolder, that is, the words in URL should be connected with hyphens).

Details of transactions and addresses

Go to page of any ERC-20 token or block in the Ethereum explorer and click on any transaction in the first column of the table. A separate page will open with an indication of hash, time, sender’s address, recipient’s address, and the number of tokens/ethers (with a ticker on a green box). Then, after the subheader, there is a table with details, which is pretty obvious. However, there is a difference: the transactions of ERC-20 tokens have values indicated opposite the ‘Token name’ and ‘Token value,’ and the amount of ETH is zero; ether transactions, on the contrary, have their value indicated, but there is no data on tokens.

Enter into the search bar of the explorer your Ethereum address or any known one (these are public keys). Or you can use a page of any block to go through the address of a sender or a recipient. The page of the Ethereum address has an indication of its ETH and USDT balances, the number of outward transactions, and a QR code. After the main data, there are two tab links: switching between them displays two similar tables.

The first contains a list of ETH transactions with an indication of their hash, block height, validation time, sender’s and recipient’s addresses, and the amount of sent ETH. Newly created addresses without any ETH transactions have a blank table.

The second contains a list of transfers of ERC-20 tokens with the indication of the transaction hash, block height, validation time, sender’s and recipient’s addresses, as well as the number and name of tokens. Often, there are addresses without such a table, especially those that are yet to send and receive ERC-20 tokens.

Note the indications:

  • IN — inward transaction;
  • OUT — outward transaction;
  • a clickable icon to the right of transactions and addresses is a convenient way to copy their hash to the clipboard.
