What is Etherscan?

Etherscan is a block explorer built specifically for Ethereum, allowing anyone to XEM all public data such as wallet addresses, transactions, smart contracts,... on the blockchain. All information on Ethereum is stored in computer language so it is difficult for a normal user to access. Etherscan synthesizes that data and displays it more intuitively.

Using Etherscan is also very simple as there is no need to register an account or connect an Ethereum wallet address. People just need to visit Etherscan.io then search for any information, however creating an account will provide more features such as setting alerts, editing Token social information,...

Etherscan is just an Explorer tool similar to many Explorers of other blockchains and is not managed by the Ethereum Foundation. So using this platform will not affect the private key or other security components of the wallet.
