Table of Contents
Are you an Avalanche enthusiast looking for a reliable way to explore and track your transactions on the network? Look no further than SnowTrace! We’re excited to announce our latest partnership with Etherscan, one of the most trusted blockchain explorers in the industry. With this integration, Avalanche users can now enjoy seamless access to real-time transaction data and insights from Etherscan’s comprehensive database. In this ultimate guide, we’ll take you through everything you need to know about using SnowTrace with Etherscan – get ready to dive into a whole new level of visibility and transparency on the Avalanche network!
What is an Avalanche?
Avalanche is a next-generation, open-source platform for launching decentralized applications and enterprise blockchain deployments in one interoperable, highly scalable ecosystem. Avalanche is the first smart contracts platform that can process over 1,000 transactions per second (TPS) with confirmations in under one second.
Avalanche addresses many of the challenges facing existing blockchains, such as slow transaction speeds, high fees, and low scalability. With Avalanche, developers can launch high-performance decentralized applications (dApps) and create their own custom blockchain networks without having to worry about these issues.
Avalanche is powered by a novel consensus algorithm called Avalanche consensus that is based on practical Byzantine fault tolerance (PBFT). This enables the platform to achieve extremely high TPS while maintaining security and decentralization.
What is Etherscan?
Etherscan is a block explorer and analytics platform for Ethereum, a decentralized smart contract platform. Etherscan allows you to scan the Ethereum blockchain to see transactions, addresses, tokens, prices, and other activity taking place on Ethereum.
The platform also provides tools for developers to analyze and debug smart contracts, as well as data and charts for users to view and analyze the network. Etherscan also provides an API that allows developers to access the Ethereum blockchain in a secure and reliable way.
How does SnowTrace bring Etherscan to the Avalanche community?
SnowTrace is a new project that aims to bring the popular Ethereum blockchain explorer Etherscan to the Avalanche community. The project is still in its early stages, but the team has already made considerable progress in porting Etherscan’s functionality to the Avalanche network.
One of the most exciting aspects of SnowTrace is that it will allow users to explore Avalanche-based smart contracts and Dapps in a similar way to how they currently interact with Ethereum-based projects on Etherscan. This will provide a much-needed boost to the visibility and usability of Avalanche-based applications.
In addition to porting Etherscan’s functionality, SnowTrace is also working on adding new features that will be specific to the Avalanche network. These include tools for monitoring and analyzing cross-chain interactions, as well as support for avatars (digital representations of users on the network).
The SnowTrace team is currently working hard to complete the project, and they are hopeful that it will be ready for launch by early 2021. In the meantime, you can keep up with their progress by following them on Twitter or checking out their GitHub repository.
Overall, SnowTrace is a great step forward in making the Avalanche network more accessible and user-friendly for developers and users alike. With their help, we can expect to see an increase in visibility and adoption of Avalanche-based projects in the near future.
What are the Benefits of Using SnowTrace?
As the Avalanche community continues to grow, so does the need for tools that allow users to interact with the network. One such tool is SnowTrace, which brings Etherscan functionality to Avalanche. Here are some of the benefits of using SnowTrace:
- Access to all Avalanche transactions: With SnowTrace, you can view all transactions that have taken place on the Avalanche network, including those involving your own addresses. This gives you a complete picture of what’s going on with your assets and allows you to track your own progress.
- Easy access to contract information: Another great benefit of using SnowTrace is that it provides easy access to contract information. This includes the contract address, ABI, and other relevant data. This makes it easier for you to interact with contracts on Avalanche, whether you’re looking to deploy a new one or simply call an existing one.
- Better security: One of the main advantages of using SnowTrace is that it offers better security than traditional block explorers. This is because SnowTrace uses SSL encryption to communicate with the Avalanche network, meaning your data is better protected from third-party interception. In addition, SnowTrace also supports 2FA (two-factor authentication), giving you an additional layer of security for your account.
How to Use SnowTrace
Assuming you have already installed and set up Avalanchego, the first thing you need to do is launch it. You will be prompted to choose your network and language. After that, create a new account by clicking on the “Create New Account” button.
Enter a strong password when prompted and click on the “Create Account” button again. Your account will now be created and you will be able to see your account address.
Now that you have an account, you need to deposit some AVAX into it. Click the deposit button and follow the instructions. Once you have deposited AVAX into your account, you are ready to use SnowTrace!
To use SnowTrace, simply type in the Avalanche address that you want to trace into the search bar and click on the “Search” button. You will then be able to see all of the transaction data associated with that address!
We hope this guide has given you a better understanding of SnowTrace and its capabilities. By bringing Etherscan to the Avalanche community, it provides users with an easy-to-use tool for tracking their transactions in real-time. This can be incredibly useful when making decisions on how best to use your funds or track your crypto investments. With SnowTrace, you now have access to all the features offered by Etherscan that are normally only available on Ethereum networks!
