Ankr, one of the world’s leading Web3 infrastructure providers, today announces the launch of Chainscanner, an all-in-one block explorer and analytics platform for app-specific blockchains (AppChains). It provides an easy way for both developers and users to view and analyze data and interact with their desired chains.
The newly-launched Chainscanner benefits both developers and users by offering an easy-to-use interface to take care of all needs for interacting with AppChains deployed on sidechain ecosystems like BNB, Polygon, and Avalanche. Developers no longer need to build block explorers or other necessary blockchain infrastructure from scratch or use the existing – and expensive – solutions for viewing on-chain data and transactions.
Kev Silk, Product Manager for Ankr AppChains, said, “Chainscanner is an essential new building block for AppChains that greatly improves user experience with tools made to let users instantly search for data, stake tokens, vote on governance proposals, get development resources, apply to become a validator, and learn everything about different chains. This is how we make decentralized apps as easy to use and as high performance as the centralized apps we’re used to interacting with every day.”
Ankr offers AppChains-as-a-Service, an end-to-end engineering solution that enables Web3 developers to easily build custom blockchains uniquely suited to their applications. Enabling developers to build their own blockchains on Sidechain frameworks like Polygon Edge, Avalanche Subnets, and the BNB Chain’s BAS helps solve two of the biggest challenges holding back Web3 adoption – slow transaction speed and high gas fees.
With AppChains, developers have the freedom to choose the programming languages, consensus mechanisms, and development frameworks they want to use. They can fine-tune their dApp’s security without relying on complex smart contracts and asset bridges.
Chainscanner allows developers and users to see transparent data and stats for validators, active users, token information, token holders, and much more. They can also stake tokens to support AppChains of their choice and participate in AppChain governance. Chainscanner makes it easier for users to get involved in governance, staking, or development.
Moreover, Chainscanner gives developers insights into the performance of their chain relative to other chains in the market, as well as the supply and demand for staking. Users, on the other hand, can gather data on the staking usage of a particular chain or token to understand how much traction a Web3 app is getting.
To bring Web3 to the masses, Ankr believes it is critical to remove the complexities of blockchain development while ensuring scalability and app-specific customization.
Ankr is building the future of decentralized Web3 infrastructure, servicing over 50 proof-of-stake chains with an industry-leading global node delivery system and RPC aggregator. Ankr currently serves over 2 trillion transactions a year across Web3 and is the leading infrastructure provider for BSC, Fantom, and Polygon chains as of 2022. Ankr also offers a suite of developer tools, including the Liquid Staking SDK, Web3 Gaming SDK, and AppChains As a Service, that empower dApp developers to build Web3 apps quickly and easily.
