How can I look up a transaction on the blockchain? 

Block Explorers provide a visually appealing and intuitive way to navigate a cryptocurrency's blockchain. Our Block Explorer launched in August 2011. It began as a way for anyone to study bitcoin transactions, along with a variety of helpful charts and statistics about activity on the network. 

To look up a bitcoin transaction, users can visit and use the search bar on the upper right to learn more about a particular bitcoin address, transaction hash, or block number by entering it in the search field.


Once you click enter, information about your search query will display. 

Take a look at this transaction we found on the blockchain as an example.
