Block Explorers for Popular Crypto Networks

A handy compilation of block explorers for popular crypto networks.

Block explorers are the search engines of the web3 world. They let you search for and retrieve information related to tokens, smart contracts, wallet addresses, transactions, fees, block details and other activity recorded on the ledger. Public blockchain data is, by definition, publicly available but, without these explorers, it is quite difficult to peruse the data and make sense of it.

Web3 is fairly early in its maturity cycle. Nothing underlines this better than the proliferation of explorers available across the multitude of crypto networks today. While some multi-chain explorers are coming to the fore now, the ubiquitous and dominant "Google" is yet to emerge. Will Google itself be the Google of web3, or is there a web3-native challenger waiting in the ranks? It's too early to say. For now though, if you need to search through the web3 labyrinth, here's a handy list of block explorers that you could use for different crypto networks.
