On Sunday, Bitcoin.com News examined five of the top blockchain explorers.

Cryptocurrency holders have traditionally used blockchain explorers to check on the progress of a transaction they’re sending or receiving, or to check the balance of a particular address.

Blockchain.com is an obvious entry to this list as it is typically ranked among the best explorers.

"While its functions are basic by the standards of today’s explorers – you can search by block, transaction, or address – it’s trusted, reliable, and well presented.  The site also provides a wealth of stats pertaining to BTC activity over the past 24 hours."

Blockchair provides access to a trove of valuable data pertaining to the BTC, BCH, and ETH blockchains, including such things as mempool size, fees, number of nodes, and difficulty, and it keeps improving.

Tokenview is a multi-chain explorer developed by a Chinese team and launched earlier this year.  bitcoin.com News calls it “the ultimate all-in-one tool for checking up on transactions and addresses”.

Etherscan is particularly good for looking up smart contract addresses.

Bitcoin.com is the website's own product.  They obviously give praise for it, though we note there is some degree of subjectivity that comes into play here.

Its clean interface and minimalist design makes it easy to look up transactions for the BCH and BTC networks in a trice. You can scan in QR codes to check a wallet address, and a button allows for switching between Bitcoin legacy and cash addresses, among other mechanisms.
