Etherscan service

Etherscan is a block explorer and analytical platform for the Ethereum blockchain. The project was launched in 2015 by a development team from Malaysia. This is an independent organization that is not funded by the Ethereum Foundation. The service is designed to navigate the public data of the network: it tracks transactions and displays the results, like a search engine. The platform contains detailed information about addresses, smart contracts, blocks, network status, and other on-chain indicators. In 2021, Etherscan developers introduced a number of similar services for BNB Chain, Fantom, Huobi Eco Chain, Optimistic Ethereum L2, Polygon, Hoo Smart Chain, Arbitrum, Moonbeam, Moonriver, and Avalanche.
Etherscan is a blockchain information source and database for smart contracts. The service does not store private keys, does not participate in any of the displayed transactions, and does not resolve transaction failure.

The main functions of Etherscan are to track the state of the network, transactions and search for information about assets stored on public Ethereum addresses.

The main page of the service presents key indicators: coin price, market capitalization, number of transactions, average gas price, and information about the difficulty of mining Ethereum.

In addition, Etherscan serves as an aggregator of data on the state of the blockchain and tokens. The Resources section presents various metrics and statistics for primary analytics: daily Ethereum price chart, capitalization chart, number of coins in circulation, and other data.

The Tokens menu contains up-to-date information about ERC-20, ERC-721 and ERC-1155 standard tokens: price, percentage change in value, trading volume, capitalization and the total number of addresses where the asset is stored.

The service displays transaction details on the Ethereum network, including failed or pending confirmations.

View assets associated with a public wallet address, as well as track portfolio data and transaction history. Find details and status of any transaction by TXID, wallet address, or ENS domain name. Verify any smart contract. The service provides data on the presence of a security audit for the source code of the project. Monitor transactions and blocks in real time. Calculate gas fees and mining profitability; Use the directory of resources related to Ethereum.
