Understand block explorers

Block explorers are tools you can use to browse blockchain data. With block explorers, you can learn more about any transaction that was made on the blockchain.

Since all Ethereum blockchain data is public and pseudonymous, it doesn't matter whose transactions you're exploring. You can view the details of both your own and others' transactions.

Block explorers are network-specific. This means that for bridge transactions, you need to use two or more different block explorers, one for each chain. In your Status Wallet, you can find the Bridge field and transaction hashes for each chain. For more details, check out Understand your transaction details.

To get started with block explorers, copy your Status Wallet address and look it up on a block explorer of your choice. For example, you can use Etherscan, Blockchair or for the Ethereum mainnet. If you're using an L2 or a sidechain, you need to find a block explorer for this network.
