Bitcoin.com’s Web Portal Adds a Simple to Use Blockchain Explorer
Blockchains record all types of activity that’s taking place within a cryptocurrency’s network such as transaction times and confirmations, information about processed blocks, and the amount of funds contained in a specific address. A block explorer is a great tool to help people find information about these subjects and Bitcoin.com has launched an easy-to-use block explorer for all of our visitors. Bitcoin.com’s block explorer is basically like a search engine that can locate various activities that are recorded on the bitcoin cash and core public blockchains.
Bitcoin.com’s block explorer has a BCH and BTC toggle switch, a search field, a cash address switch (BCH only) and the latest blocks and transactions highlighted in the blue boxes.
Various Features with More Support Rolling Out Soon
Looking at the bitcoin cash block explorer’s front page shows the latest blocks processed and the latest transactions. Moreover, there’s a search bar where users can fill in a BCH address, transaction and even block hashes. The interface also includes a QR scanner so QR codes can be read alongside the ability to change the national currency and language. Bitcoin.com’s BCH explorer also features a Cash address switch, adding more depth to the search parameters. While using the BCH block explorer users can also toggle to Bitcoin.com’s BTC block explorer to search for data on the core network.
Bitcoin.com’s CEO, Roger Ver, is thrilled to see the new block explorer in action and believes it’s a great addition to the website’s wide variety of cryptocurrency tools and educational resources.
“The new Bitcoin.com Block Explorer is a robust tool to analyze transactions, blocks, and addresses on both the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Bitcoin Core (BTC) chains,” explains Ver.
This product adds another awesome tool to the Bitcoin.com portfolio and the Bitcoin Cash community — Future plans include rolling out support for the growing ecosystem of colored coins built on top of the Bitcoin Cash protocol.
