Requirement

As development partners for XDC Foundation, we were tasked to create multiple ecosystem tools for the XDC blockchain. This particular project aimed to create a Block Explorer that would allow users to search the XDC Network for real-time data such as transactions, contracts and block data. Also, the explorer must function as an analytical platform for users to better understand the XDC blockchain, its wallets, smart contracts, tokens, and dApps. The intended output was to improve users’ convenience-of-use and make the network more intrinsic for digitization, tokenization, and quick settlement of trade transactions.

The Solution

As a solution to the requirement, we created XDC Observatory. This Decentralized block watcher allows users to search the XDC Network in real-time for data related to transactions, blocks, smart contracts, wallet addresses, and other on-chain information. The platform presents the network’s data through well-structured tables pinned with analytics, sorting and filter functionality. Account log-in provides users access to unique features like private tag, transaction label, create watchlist. It’s a free platform with a nice blue and white design interface compatible with all devices and operating systems.
