Block Explorer

This is an explanation of Block Explorer.

Blockchain Explorer is an application that allows humans to visually check the blockchain status of a network. The system uses a modified version of the open source software Blockscout, and in addition to checking the block status, it can also check the account status, transaction status, etc. It also has APIs using REST and GraphQL. It is also equipped with REST and GraphQL APIs, allowing block status to be retrieved externally through an engineer-friendly API.

In this system, it is launched as a Docker container on a Linux OS running like an EC2 instance, and within Docker, in addition to Blockscout software, Postgress DB is installed to record data.
