Ankr enhances AppChains experience with launch of Chainscanner

Rick Steves

“Chainscanner is an essential new building block for AppChains that greatly improves user experience with tools made to let users instantly search for data, stake tokens, vote on governance proposals, get development resources, apply to become a validator, and learn everything about different chains.”

Ankr has launched an all-in-one block explorer and analytics platform for app-specific blockchains in order to facilitate the way both developers and users view and analyze data and interact with their desired chains.

Chainscanner enhances the interaction with AppChains deployed on sidechain ecosystems like BNB, Polygon, and Avalanche.

AppChains to build faster and cheaper dApps

AppChains is an engineering solution that enables Web3 developers to build custom blockchains uniquely suited to their applications and tackle slow transaction speed and high gas fees.

The solution offers access to many programming languages, consensus mechanisms, and development frameworks to build their apps as well as fine-tune their dApp’s security without relying on complex smart contracts and asset bridges.

With the launch of Chainscanner, users will gain access to a friendly interface and developers will no longer need to build block explorers or other necessary blockchain infrastructure from scratch or use the existing solutions for viewing on-chain data and transactions.

Chainscanner enhances search, voting, resources, education

Kev Silk, Product Manager for Ankr AppChains, said: “Chainscanner is an essential new building block for AppChains that greatly improves user experience with tools made to let users instantly search for data, stake tokens, vote on governance proposals, get development resources, apply to become a validator, and learn everything about different chains. This is how we make decentralized apps as easy to use and as high performance as the centralized apps we’re used to interacting with every day.”

With Chainscanner, developers and users can see transparent data and stats for validators, active users, token information, token holders, and much more.

In addition, they can stake tokens to support AppChains of their choice and participate in AppChain governance. Chainscanner makes it easier for users to get involved in governance, staking, or development.

While developers are given insights into the performance of their chain relative to other chains in the market, as well as the supply and demand for staking, users can gather data on the staking usage of a particular chain or token to understand how much traction a Web3 app is getting.

Ankr’s node delivery system and RPC aggregator services over 50 proof-of-stake chains and serves over 2 trillion transactions a year. The infrastructure provider is specialized in BSC, Fantom, and Polygon and offers a suite of developer tools, including the Liquid Staking SDK, Web3 Gaming SDK, and AppChains As a Service.
