What is Explorer?

Cryptocurrency enthusiasts can explore the complete blockchain of any coin by using their dedicated explorer. Explorer is a tool that provides information on the contents of individual blocks and transactions that are found in a coin’s blockchain. Transactions are available to everyone and with this they are transparent and incorruptible.

Note: the Merge coin is used for the demonstration of Explorer. The screenshots show the contents in English. However, the service is provided on Project Merge’s website in at least five different languages.


From Project Merge’s website, access our portfolio of coins using Explorer: https://explorers.projectmerge.org
