Block explorers


Block explorers are the Google for searching on a blockchain. They give developers and users the possibility to search information such as balances, contracts, tokens, transactions, and API services.

Astar provides two different kinds of explorers: one that combines Substrate and EVM, and another that is dedicated to our EVM ecosystem.


Subscan is the most used explorer in the Polkadot ecosystem. With Subscan you can search the complete Astar Network. Subscan support Substrate and Ethereum API. BlockScout is the best explorer for developers who are building in our EVM environment, it has all the features as EtherScan.
