- Ankr’s new block explorer will help users find on-chain information with ease
- The block explorer supports 11 blockchains, including Bitcoin, Etherium, Solana, etc.
- Users can also search and view NFT transaction data
Ankr was developed to offer accessible and affordable blockchain node hosting solutions by utilizing shared resources. It was established in November of 2017 and has since created a market for container-based cloud services by sharing resources. This enables developers and commercial clients to effortlessly deploy blockchain nodes at a far lower cost than public cloud providers. Furthermore, by hosting blockchain nodes on Ankr, a single point of failure and issues with centralization are eliminated.
In addition, public blockchains can interact with their communities and assist their networks in new ways. To facilitate the usage of blockchain technology and DeFi applications, Ankr plans to establish an infrastructure platform and marketplace for Web3-stack deployment.
It is important to note that geographically distributed data centers totally power the Ankr private cloud architecture to boost its stability and resilience levels compared to public cloud providers.
Ankrscan Launch And Use Cases
Ankr has announced the launch of its latest Web3 offering, a multi-chain block explorer named Ankrscan. The search engine allows users to view block information, transaction hashes, and wallet addresses across several blockchains with a single click.
With its Public Multi-RPC and Ankr Protocol, the platform aims to simplify the way users interact with blockchain data with zero cost and complete anonymity.
According to the Twitter announcement and press release on Medium, the multi-chain browser currently supports 11 networks, including Binance Smart Chain, Etherium, Polkadot, Avalanche, and Kusama.

The Ankrscan will allow users to explore on-chain data and sift through tons of insights and opportunities like other block explorers. However, its defining edge is in its multi-chain support that doesn’t restrict users to just one network, compared to others in the space.
With the search engine, users can:
- View latest transactions status and data across chains, including NFTs
- Explore latest transaction hashes
- Create and deploy their dApps
- Keep track of transaction fees and gas fees, among others.
What Next For Ankr
Ankr has stated that the blockchain explorer will remain a completely free and open block, and it will continue to add new features to its functionality.
In the future, they will enable API access to the search engine’s data to allow other projects to display Ankrscan data in their applications directly. The Ankr Protocol’s multi-chain data will also help developers and investors understand its operations and use cases.
