Each network or currency has its own blockchain explorer that comes with its own set of features. For example, If you run a Google search on “Block Explorer” you’ll find different BE’s for different blockchain environments.
For the OMG Network, we have the OMG Blockchain Explorer (OMGBE).
What can the OMG Block Explorer do?
The OMGBE helps you explore the entirety of the OMG Network — you can look up anything from blocks to transaction details and histories. It also features a live transaction feed that shows you who sent how much value to whom.
The feed also displays average block time and total transactions from the inception of the OMG Network.
Additionally, you can investigate a block that has already been mined to see how the cryptocurrency is generated and where it’s being distributed. And you can use the tool to search for transaction IDs and wallet addresses, helping you verify transactions to your wallet.
Lastly, the OMGBE lets you analyze the OMG Network on both mobile and the web.
