Taking a Gander at Ankr Scan, Ankr’s Multi-Chain Block Explorer

As someone who spends an inordinate amount of time researching coins and attempting to ascertain useful (and occasionally useless) information by eyeballing transaction info, I can appreciate any tool which makes this task more efficient. It can be tedious to have to hop around from blockchain explorer to blockchain explorer to lookup transactions on individual chains. I’m not going to name any names here, but some blockchains do not even have user friendly block explorer sites or urls that are all that intuitive to locate in my opinion.

Thankfully, Ankr’s multi-chain block explorer Ankr Scan represents a giant step forward in efficiency. Allowing users to explore transactions, addresses, blocks, and assets across more than 11 major blockchains, this nifty tool is a boon for crypto researchers. It’s like having access to your very own private eye-in-the-sky. Examples of chains currently supported are Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, Polkadot, Avalanche, Polygon, Fantom, Kusama, Arbitrum, HECO, OKExchain and xDai.

However, comprehensive data aggregation of this kind is also useful for developers. In addition to providing the ability to analyze account and address information from multiple chains simultaneously, Ankr Scan makes it easy for developers to integrate multichain transactions into their applications. The emerging Web3 future is a (mostly) decentralized, multi-chain world where blockchains can seamlessly interface with one another. Ankr’s multi-chain development tools (of which Ankr Scan is one of many) are playing a key role in this ongoing transition.
