Block explorers are useful because they provide info and help you search the blockchain. They use API and nodes to download data, then store it in a database.
Users’ inputs are often searched terms on the Explorer and then searched through an organized table on the database. The Explorer then organizes data from blockchains into a kind of table format.
Typically, Blockchain Explorers give you a database of new blocks & recent transactions on a particular blockchain. It can also show a live feed of what the network is doing as it happens.
On the other hand, AI writers enable you to do the following:
1) We allow you to explore the history of any wallet address which increases transparency on a blockchain
2)Explore receiving & change addresses: You can also see a change address which returns crypto back to the sender. This prevents too much of the input value from going to the transacted entity. This also improves the transparency of transactions by storing all records for easy access by regulators.
3) Explore the largest transaction of the day: This is NOT supported by some explorers.
4) Explore the Mempool’s status: This can allow us to explore all unconfirmed transaction details on a blockchain.
5) Out of all the explorers, some support finding out the number of double-spend transactions that take place on a blockchain.
#6) Explore orphaned and stale blocks: These are blocks that are not attached to the longest blockchain even after mining, and their parent blockchain is unknown. As new cryptocurrencies come out, ‘stale blocks’ are becoming more common than ever. This means a block that isn’t the longest in the network – it could exist on a shorter chain. It’s possible to find out how many blocks are of this type by checking the explorer.
#7) Discover who found the pool or mined the block: Mining pools are groups of people that put their computing power together to mine crypto. With explorers, we can see what blocks they successfully mined. Collectively, pools work to find a new block every few minutes. Explorers such as etherscan show us the most recent block they mined.
#8) Explore genesis blocks: Blockchains have a “genesis block” that represents the first ever mined block on that chain. You can find out more about traits such as who mined it and when it was created.
#9) Allow other users to see details about possible transactions, the amount of work needed to start a new blockchain and other factors.
