For Baidu browser we may not be unfamiliar, but for the blockchain browser I think most people who do not understand the blockchain or have just come into contact with the blockchain industry are somewhat confused. So let me explain it to you.


Blockchain browser is a search tool is also a website, but it is different from ordinary browsers, it can only query the crypto wallet address lookup information on the tool, it is built on the ordinary centralized network, specifically for users to browse and query information on the blockchain a search tool.


Each blockchain system has its own specific browser, and users cannot query the information of project B through the blockchain browser of project A, such as the Ethereum blockchain browser can only query the relevant block information of Ethereum, and the block information of EOS can only be queried on the EOS blockchain browser.


The role of blockchain browsers

First, query information

Transaction status: You can check the balance or transaction details by checking the wallet address. For example, if you know someone’s Bitcoin address, due to the public transparency of the blockchain, when you query this address on the Bitcoin blockchain browser, you can see all of its transactions.


Block height: The latest block height of Bitcoin can be learned through the browser. Knowing the block height is helpful in calculating the fork time.


Block hashing: Queries the status of the block through the block hashing.


Mining pool computing power: You can see the current computing power data of each major mining pool.


Ii. Data statistics

Data statistics of the main network, including the total number of main network blocks, new wallet addresses, transaction records, etc.


The difficulty value of the main network block changes at a certain point in time and the proportion of changes.


The total number of UXTO assets in a certain period of time.


Hashed data such as the proportion of data in a certain period of time.


What does the term mean on blockchain browsers

Block Hash: refers to the hash value of this block, based on the parent hash (that is, block header or tertiary block) is calculated twice. Is one of the block identifiers that can uniquely and unambiguously identify a block. When you want to view a block, you can query through the block hash. A block hash is a number obtained by performing a quadratic hash calculation on the block header.


Block Height: This article has talked about before, please see what is the block height in the blockchain for details?


Transactions: Refers to the total number of transactions contained in the block, including the number of ordinary transactions and the number of automatically executed smart contracts.


Block Reward: The number of coins contained in this block.


Size: The block size is not a fixed value, related to the number of transactions, but the maximum value of each block is 2M.


Transaction Fee: Transaction fee in Ethereum = Gas Used *Gas price. The transaction fee is related to the number of bytes taken up by the transaction, not the size of the transfer amount. The transaction fee is the transfer fee, which is related to the number of bytes taken up by the transaction, and is not related to the size of the transfer amount.


GasLimit: is the maximum amount of Gas that can be Used in this block, when the Gas Used < gas limit (gas p=”” limit) to successfully package, otherwise fail, start from scratch. < =””>

Difficulty: A measure of the average number of operations required to mine a block, reflecting how long it takes to mine a certain number of blocks at a certain difficulty.
