A block explorer (also called "blockchain browser") is a program or web site that lets users search and navigate a block chain. Uses include:

Block chain browsers typically provide:

  • a list of a chain's recent blocks
  • transactions in a given block
  • links to the previous and next transaction involving each input and output
  • a list of all transactions involving a given address
  • current and historical address balances
  • a way to search for blocks, transactions, and addresses
  • some offer a way to broadcast a signed raw transaction
