- BlockScout allows users of ETH, ETC, and POA to view and explore transaction history, addresses, and balances.
- The team claims the open source block explorer tool provides users with detailed info on past and present transactions in real-time.
- POA says its BlockScout software supports smart contract verification and more.
POA Network (POA20), a blockchain project built upon the Ethereum smart contracts distributed ledger, has successfully launched BlockScout , a block explorer tool with full support for Ether (ETH), Ethereum Classic (ETC) and its POA20 altcoin, as announced by the POA Network team on October 9, 2018.
POA Develops Innovative Block Explorer for Ethereum Blockchain
In a bid to allow users of Ether (ETH), ethereum classic (ETC), as well as its POA20 token to seamlessly search and explore transactions, wallet addresses, and balances, POA Network has launched a new block explorer for the Ethereum blockchain called BlockScout.
According to POA Network, the POA20 token’s primary objective is to facilitate cross chain interaction between two separate blockchains using its cross-chain bridge.
With the scalability issues currently plaguing the Ethereum network, POA Network hopes its cross-bridge solution will alleviate the connectivity and scalability bottlenecks on the network.
BlockScout Supports ERC20 and ERC721 Tokens
Per the POA Network team, with BlockScout, users will now be able to effortlessly get detailed info on their token transfers, balances, and other transactions, both in the past and as they take place in real time.
That’s not all, the team has made it clear that BlockScout is entirely open source, has an easy-to-use API and supports both ERC-20 and ERC-721 tokens.
BlockScout Ethereum block explorer also supports smart contracts verification, querying, as well as the tracking of block confirmation in real-time.
It’s worth noting that BlockScout has been in the works for more than one year now. The team released the Beta version on GitHub earlier in August 2018, and the software now has over 2,000 commits, plus an impressive 27 community contributors.
BlockScout Project Lead, Andrew Cravenho has commended the entire development team and community members for their dedication, hard work and feedback that has now made the BlockScout project hugely successful.
“BlockScout is a new standard for blockchain exploration tools. It provides users with comprehensive insights for transaction verification on the Ethereum blockchain, sidechains, and private chains,” said Tech Lead of POA, Igor Barinov.
Despite being home to a vast array of decentralized applications (dApps) and blockchain projects, Ethereum’s success is yet to start reflecting in the price of Ether (ETH).
At press time the price of ETH sits at a lowly $201, with no signs of mooning any time soon.
