Cardano tracking tools

Since Cardano is a public blockchain ledger, it is possible to easily track all recent transactions, block details, and epoch data using different tools.

Cardano Explorer is a user-oriented tool that fetches data from the main database and reflects it in a straightforward and convenient web interface.

The Explorer shows the latest epoch details. You can click the latest epoch and see:

  • time the epoch started

  • time of last produced block

  • number of processed transactions

  • total output in ada
