Any blockchain based business will agree: block explorers have been one of the most important applications in the blockchain ecosystem. Our (ambitious) goal is to make sure all of our visitors can search transaction records with API web tools to match the reporting capabilities.
BullPay launched the first enterprise-grade block explorer, Longhorn, available to the public in September 2018. All billions of transactions and every blockchain addresses published to the supported blockchains — BTC, BCH (on hold), ETH, LTC, DASH and Doge (2018 Q4) — are indexed and easily searchable, with a simple user interface that most of us can understand.
A POWERFUL, EASY-TO-USE BLOCK EXPLORER
Longhorn Block Explorer is simply a search engine that can locate blockchain activities recorded on the blockchains we support.
Longhorn Block Explorer has (highlighted in yellow)
- A selection for
- Bitcoin (BTC)
- Bitcoin Cash (BCH) — on hold due to the 11/15 hard fork
- Ethereum (ETH)
- Litecoin (LTC)
- Litecoin TestNet (LTC)
- Dash (DASH)
- Dogecoin (DOGE) — scheduled release in 2018 Q4
- A search field — you can search by
- Address, i.e. 1dice7fUkz5h4z2wPc1wLMPWgB5mDwKDx
- Transaction hash, or transaction ID, i.e. caa0fdab57ccf31ce8d78293f17dd4e3453b14463f34cc9251094ff1b3e99275
- Block hash, i.e. 0000000000000000000bc31e4467555ebcd97f29f1d221cd864818d77cde65b3
- Block height, or block number (without commas), i.e. 550217
- Blocks indexed — The total number of blocks indexed since the genesis block.
- Transaction indexed — The total number of records of all blockchain transactions that have ever been executed.
- Last update — This is the time between the last block committed to our database. For example, miners can take up to 20 minutes between Bitcoin blocks. “Last update” indicates how recent the last block was committed to our database.
- The average time between blocks — The average time it takes to mine a block.
With Longhorn Block Explorer, you are now equipped with tools to see any balance or movement of funds. It’s just right for any blockchain search and verification needs.
“The Longhorn block explorer is a remarkable innovation in blockchain accounting for the general cryptocurrency / cryptocurrency community — Future plans include rolling out support for the additional blockchains while maintaining its impeccable stability.” – explains Kyle Kuehm, Founder & Managing Partner.
RESOURCES FOR THE GROWING CRYPTO ENVIRONMENT
The Longhorn Block Explorer gives visitors a complete picture of (highlighted in yellow):
- Where the transactions derives to and from
- When the transaction was mined — the exact date and time
- The number of Inputs and Outputs
- The exact number of transaction confirmations
- The total value of each transaction
- Transaction fees (when click into each transaction ID)
- QR Scannable Code
- Total received — scheduled release in 2018 Q4
- Total sent — scheduled release in 2018 Q4
- Final balance — scheduled release in 2018 Q4
The Longhorn’s powerful, yet simple interface returns all transactions, showing 10 results per page with an option to hop to a specific page (or the last page) in a split second.
No block explorer can boast the same full functionality. For example:
- BlockCypher allows users to see 10 results per page with a option to go to the “next page” only by clicking the “More” button at the bottom of page.
[Fun fact: To navigate to the end of wallet (previous link) using the interface, without editing the URL, you would spend ~12.1 hours loading pages and an additional ~30.25 hours scrolling down to the “More” button. In this case, we suggest messing with the block numbers in the URL itself!]
- Blockexplorer.com, who also allows users to see 10 results per page, offers an option to scroll down to load additional 10 results, at a time.
- Etherscan.io only displays the last 25 transactions with an option to dig through a CSV download of the last 3,000. Period.
- SoChain only displays the last 50 transactions, when it’s capable of loading a wallet(aka “So Fail” (their words not ours, click here to view)).
