Mission & key concepts
BlockScout is a robust open-source tool for exploring, confirming, and inspecting transactions on any EVM blockchain. It is the only non-proprietary, fully-featured, and opensource block explorer available today. Blockscout provides a full-featured API, real-time transaction tracking, and user-friendly UI (which is currently undergoing a new facelift). Users can read and verify Solidity smart contracts and access pre-existing contracts to fast-track development. Contract method calls and logs are decoded, making all information easily accessible. Blockscout is written in the Elixir programming language, and is open to the community to contribute to its code, use or improve it. We are currently exploring a Rust implementation, code modularity, and other enhancements for future versions.
Decentralized networks need decentralized infrastructure. Redundancy, resiliency, and checks-and-balances must be built in to harden networks and provide guaranteed uptime and data accessibility. The primary block explorer for many networks is Etherscan, and it provides a wealth of data to users of the chains it supports. However, if Etherscan goes down or is compromised in any way, users and projects are quickly stuck in a black hole devoid of blockchain data. Multiple robust explorers are essential to create a resilient, transparent, and decentralized environment. Blockscout currently supports over 100 chains in the ecosystem. It is a community-driven, open-source project with a small team dedicated to supporting hosted chains and building new features. In addition to providing a secondary explorer for larger ecosystems, we also give smaller projects, newer chains, and testnets the ability to quickly spin up and customize their own block explorer instances.
Culture & Values
We are a team of true believers in decentralized infrastructure. Supporting the most widely used open-source block explorer for 6 years now.
Blockscout launched almost 6 years ago with the aim of providing a decentralized block explorer for the broader Ethereum community.
The project is open-source and doesn't have any token.
The team are blockchain veterans who are in the space for several years.
Fully remote positions, very competitive salaries, and, most importantly, working on something used daily by tens of thousands of users and thousands of developers.
