For many Ethereum owners, the blockchain explorers tracking crypto movements may not be aware of it, other than popular price tracking websites that cover a wide variety of assets.
In this list, we show and compare the Ethereum blockchain explorers currently available on the market, which can give crypto newbies a better understanding of the transactions carried out on the Ethereum blockchain.
When the Berlin Hard Fork went live on Ethereum in April 2021, many other Ethereum explorers and platforms working on OpenEthereum crashed when nodes on the network went down. However, Ethplorer was unaffected by the upgrade as the platform doesn’t just run on OpenEthereum. Easily accessible, Ethplorer allows users to track ERC tokens in real time and compare the growth of different tokens over a 24 hour, weekly and monthly period.
Other features of Ethplorer include the option to track an infinite number of tokens or transactions for a list of Ethereum addresses Bulk API monitorwhich is more aimed at developers. This makes it possible to receive e-mail or telegram updates for incoming or outgoing transactions. The monitoring service is more aimed at the regular crypto user and warns a user of incoming or outgoing transactions related to a specific address or a specific smart contract.
Etherscan is the most popular Ethereum explorer. With a long list of features and useful tools, it’s easy to see why. With graphics covering nearly every measurable facet of the Ethereum network and new features such as yield farming tools and token air drops, Etherscan will meet all of your Ethereum exploration needs. Etherscan also offers one DeFi leaderboardwith 32 listed and a DEX tracker showing the transaction hash, the action involved, the amount, the swap rate and the DEX it occurred on. For those who want to see the top stats, there is also a page here with information spread over 24 hours, three days or seven days.
It is currently available in a beta version EthProtect (Every Transaction Hash Protect), a detection system for Ethereum users designed to alert them of contaminated incoming funds, while tracing those funds back to their origin. Another beta software is the “Token Approvals” feature. This allows a user to review and revoke token permissions for any dApp if suspicious activity is detected.
With its easy-to-use interface, it’s surprising that Etherchain isn’t as well known as the other two Ethereum explorers on the list. In addition to the user interface, Etherchain has a number of useful tools. One of them is a unit converter that allows users to input other units of measure on the Ethereum network such as Wei, Szabo, and Tether. Another feature is the gas price oracle which projects the gas price that must be paid to confirm a transaction within a certain number of blocks.
There is also an option to explore the Ethereum chain, look up transactions, or view graphs showing movements in total ether supply, block gas consumption, mining rewards, uncle mining rewards, and blocks per day. Unlike the other two explorers, Etherchain does not contain details on the top performing ERC tokens, but does contain useful diagrams to show it Mining Statistics and Correlations between different variables.
