Etherscan overhauls and expands core explorer functionality for Avalanche DeFi ecosystem.

Today, a new tool joins the suite of Avalanche infrastructure with SnowTrace, an implementation of Etherscan custom-built for the Avalanche blockchain.

Etherscan is Ethereum’s most popular blockchain explorer, helping users not only track and understand block-level activity on the network, but also access advanced, value-adding features such as a transaction history API, effortless smart contract verification, and aggregated network statistics.

Avalanche is growing at a rapid pace, hitting new all-time highs in user activity, including transaction volume, unique addresses (now over 584,000), and assets transferred from Ethereum to Avalanche over the Avalanche Bridge ($5.3B). Total Value Locked (TVL) has increased from $300M in August to over $8.4B today, according to data from DeFi Llama.

SnowTrace replaces the existing Avalanche C-Chain Explorer to deliver a more highly-performant, feature-filled experience for the global community of Avalanche developers and users. It joins Avascan and Avalanche Stats as premiere explorers helping enrich the Avalanche community experience.

Early next week, the legacy C-Chain Explorer will be shutdown. Please make sure to re-verify contracts on SnowTrace before the shutdown. We also recommend updating the explorer link in MetaMask to SnowTrace (https://testnet.snowtrace.io and https://snowtrace.io).
