Getting Started with Chainspector

The Swiss Army knife of Telos

From the same creators of the popular The Teloscope Bot comes chainspector, an utility application that you can enjoy for free at chainspector.io

What is it?

Although raw data is publicly accessible on the Telos blockchain, non technical users may have difficulties in giving it a useful meaning. For some of them it can be tedious to use a block explorer. Also some important information comes from analysing the whole picture, and not only from looking at the individual parts.

So here is when chainspector comes to rescue. It is a web application that sumarizes several live informations about the Telos Blockchain Network. Unlike a block explorer, chainspector offers a set of tools that present useful information so the user can easily play with it.

On its very first version, the application offers four sets of tools. But with your feedback we expect to add many more. Future development of chainspector will align with what the community needs. You can shape our development!

Dashboard

Here you can get to know the basic Telos network information at a glance. For your convenience we have selected what we consider the most interesting information, so you don’t have to search for it elsewhere.

Voting Scope

Here you have a set of interconnected tools that makes it easier to explore the voting for block producer candidates on Telos.

For example, you can play with the votes casted by top voters and proxies to see their influence. And of course, you can also explore who votes for each BP candidate.

Snapshots

On this page you can check if a Telos account is present in the snapshots, so you can make sure it will qualify for some future airdrops!

RPC Api

This set of tools originated from our personal experience: when you want to check something quickly but you don’t want to navigate through an explorer, nor open the console.

Here you can perform any query even from your mobile phone! We really think that it will be much appreciated by the not so technical savvy users.

The Teloscope is an independent nonprofit Telos block producer — our work is free from the influence of crypto whales or other BPs. The revenue we get from any service we provide to the Telos network is fully invested in our Telos BP infrastructure, as well as in tools and services for the blockchain community.

You can support us by including theteloscope among the list of BPs that deserve your vote.
