Review

What is Etherscan?

Founded by Mattew Tan, Etherscan is the leading BlockChain Explorer, Search, API, and Analytics Platform for Ethereum, a decentralized smart contracts platform. Built and launched in 2015 it is one of the earliest and longest-running independent projects built around Ethereum and its community with the mission of providing equitable access to blockchain data. The data platform is a block explorer that allows you to browse public data on the Ethereum blockchain, including transactions, smart contracts, addresses, and more. On Ethereum, all interactions are public, and Etherscan lets you browse through them like a search engine. You may inspect all connected activities, including tokens, smart contracts, and wallet addresses, using a transaction hash (transaction ID).

With the Etherscan gas tracker, users can calculate Ethereum gas fees, look up and double-check smart contracts. They can view their crypto assets held in a public wallet address or associated with it and observe real-time transactions on their Ethereum blockchain. Lookup a single Ethereum transaction from any wallet, find out which smart contracts have a source code audit and a security audit.

Users don't have to register an account to use Etherscan, but can if they want more features. For example, a user can build data feeds, set alerts to be notified of incoming transactions, and access developer tools.

Etherscan does not provide an Ethereum wallet for you to use or keep your private keys in. It's also not suitable for trading. It merely serves as a repository for blockchain data and a smart contract database. You'll need a crypto wallet like Trust Wallet, MetaMask, Math Wallet, or Binance Chain Wallet to make transactions or store crypto.

To use Etherscan, you'll need a wallet address, transaction ID (TXID), contract address, or other similar identifiers to paste into the search field. The information you see may vary depending on what you're looking at, but the majority of it will comprise associated transactions, addresses, timestamps, and volumes.
