Hello Blockstack community!
You may have seen that we’ve been doing a lot of work to launch our new genesis block, with support for new tokens. Our previous explorer (at explorer.blockstack.org) wouldn’t have support for that token, and it was just a fork of an existing Bitcoin explorer. This made it harder to modify and make it our own.
We decided to build a new explorer from scratch, to highlight new Blockstack names, support Stacks-related data, and match our branding.
We’re asking the community to let us know about any feedback or issues you see in this new project. It should have all the same functionality as the old explorer, with a few new things:
- a reworked homepage to show recent name registrations and recent growth in total names
- adding support for viewing details about a Stacks address. Here’s a random address from our genesis block: https://genesis.stackstoken.com/address/stacks/SP2CV3MRYY34S034C0JP3JYCPHC86MJMJT3FM4CZE
One week from today (November 7th, 2018), if the website seems stable, we’ll move this new explorer to the URL explorer.blockstack.org.
Thanks for checking it out!
