Block Explorers provide a visually appealing and intuitive way to navigate the bitcoin blockchain. Our Block Explorer launched in August 2011, and was created 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 https://blockchain.info 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.
