A block explorer is a tool that you use to view all cryptocurrency transactions online. Specifically, to view all current and past transactions on the blockchain. It gives you information on the blockchain’s hash rate. It also tells us the rate of transaction growth and provides other useful information.
In other words, a block explorer is an online blockchain browser which reveals the data of individual blocks and transactions. With the tool, we can monitor transaction histories and balances of addresses.
We have created a brief overview of the Blockchain Explorer (Bitcoin) so that you can find easier your way around.
To get started open your web browser and go to the following website: https://live.blockcypher.com
- Enter the public Bitcoin (BTC) wallet address you are searching for in the textfield
- Public wallet address in QR format; for example to send an amount to this specific address
- Current balance of the wallet in Bitcoin (BTC) or USD.
- Transaction history related to this Bitcoin wallet address
Make sure you enter only the public wallet address into the textfield (1). Never enter or share your private key on those websites. As soon as you reveal your private key to a third party, your cryptocurrency amount might be at risk.
