The bitcoin-buildout company, Blockstream, has just launched its own block explorer, capable of displaying specific information about the bitcoin blockchain and Blockstream’s Liquid sidechain.
The explorer was created out of the desire of Liquid users to cross-check transactions. Bitcoin functionality was added before the explorer became available to the public on November 6, 2018.
Blockstream’s block explorer sports many benefits over other choices available today. For one thing, it gets information from a bitcoin core full node. It also offers native support for all of the features of bitcoin and monitors side chain peg-in and peg-outs between bitcoin and Liquid.
The bitcoin-tech company intends for their explorer to be simple to use while also offering powerful features for developers.
