Router Protocol Announces the Launch of its Cross-chain Explorer
A cross-chain explorer indexing all of Router’s cross-chain transactions, a widget for projects to offer cross-chain transactions directly from their UI…
The missing piece of the Router puzzle is here — no more juggling between two different blockchain explorers to monitor the transaction status, no more searching through your past transactions to find out how many funds you transferred, to which chain, and when. Users can now monitor all the details of their cross-chain transactions on a single platform — Router’s cross-chain explorer, which is available at https://explorer.routerprotocol.com.
Router’s Cross-chain Explorer
With all the key details of Router’s cross-chain transactions packed up on the homepage, Router’s cross-chain explorer provides users with a comfortable one-stop experience when navigating the Router ecosystem.
On the home screen, you can first see some basic statistics about the bridge, including the number of (a) transactions, (b) unique users to have used Router, (c) assets bridged via Router, (d) networks supported by the bridge, and (e) active validators (aka router nodes). Below these stats, you can find the list of all cross-chain transactions sorted in reverse chronological order (most recent transaction first).
To facilitate easier transaction discovery, our cross-chain explorer also has a search bar using which users can find their cross-chain transactions using just their address or the source/destination chain transaction hash.
Note: Our cross-chain explorer does not index same-chain transactions. To monitor the same-chain swaps, kindly use the dedicated block explorer for that chain (for example, https://polygonscan.com for Polygon, https://etherscan.io for Ethereum, and so on).
“Exploring” the transaction
To view all the information regarding a specific transaction, simply click on the transaction on the home screen. The “Transaction Details” screen will display all the real-time transaction details such as the from/to wallet address, source/destination asset, source/destination token amount, fee token used to pay for the transaction, source/destination chain transaction hash, as well as the current transaction status.
With Router’s cross-chain explorer, users can easily track the status and details of Router’s transactions across multiple chains, eliminating the need to collect fragmented data on different explorers to troubleshoot transaction problems. For example, users can immediately identify where their transaction is being processed by checking the status of Router transactions on this explorer.
On a separate note, we would also like to tell our community that we have successfully developed a widget that can be used by other projects to give their users an option to perform cross-chain transactions directly from their UI. To integrate Router’s widget into your existing website, follow this guide.
The widget is highly customizable when it comes to parameters such as the default from chain, to chain, from token, and to token. For example, a project on BSC might want to show the widget with the default to chain parameter set to “BSC”.
