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.
Exploring transactions and blocks
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:
- a number of blocks produced during this epoch
- time the epoch started
- time of last produced block
- number of processed transactions
- total output in ada
