Posted February 20, 2022 by Reef Developers ‐ 2 min read

Reefscan is the most advanced, fully open-source block explorer. It was built from the ground up for Reef chain.

Reefscan UI Redesign

Reefscan has a new look. It is the first Reef project utilizing components from the upcoming Reef UI kit.

ERC-20 Token Tracker

Reefscan will now automatically label and track smart contracts that satisfy ERC-20 contract interface. This gives users the full transparency into token holdings and token movements on chain.

NFT support

Reefscan now supports NFTs as well. This makes it easy for developers to integrate NFTs into their apps and wallets.

Improved smart contract support

Smart contracts now have a full source viewer and improved verification API. The verification APIs are also integrated into Reef Hardhat and Remix.

The Graph

Reefscan’s choice of database backend - Postgres - will certainly delight many software engineers. However we have received a lot of requests for “The graph”. Fortunately, Reefscan also ships with Hasura GraphQL server which makes it easy for web developers to connect with Reef chain data warehouse for faster and more powerful frontend applications.

Check out the Reefscan documentation to learn how to access the graph and other features.

Reefscan APIs

Reefscan also ships with multiple API endpoints that are useful for quickly implementing wallet enhancements and other features:

  • An API for listing user’s tokens and balances
  • An API for historic trading data on Reefswap DEX
  • An API for programmatically verifying smart contracts source code
  • An API for retreiving verified smart contract’s source and ABI
  • and more

Full Docker support

Reefscan runs in Docker. Setting up the full Reefscan stack (Postgres, GraphQL, Backend & Frontend) is as easy as:

make net=mainnet env=prod up
