How to use BscScan? Beginner's Guide

Crypto coins are the new digital currency of the future. Cryptocurrency decentralization which is possible due to blockchain technology is one of its largest advantages. However, is there any way to verify crypto transactions just like brick-and-mortar banks verify bank transfers?

Today we will talk about the most popular blockchain explorer – BscScan. This is a platform that gives access to all the information about wallets, coins, tokens, smart contracts, and crypto transactions on Binance Smart Chain. Read on to find out how BscScan works and what data it provides.

What is BscScan?

One of the leading blockchain explorers, a BscScan was created by the team behind another huge crypto search engine – Etherscan (for tokens built on Ethereum blockchain). On the BscScan platform, you can only see information on cryptocurrency coins and wallets operating on Binance Smart Chain, which are also known as BEP-20 tokens. Bscscan stands for Bitcoin Smart Chain but is rebranding to BNB (Build and Build) to make stronger connections with the BNB coin.

BscScan itself is a website with numerous charts and tables. One can filter the initial search requests by addresses, tokens, websites, labels, and name tags. No matter what search option you choose, the results will be the same. You will see the tokens in the wallet and balance, transaction status (successful, pending, or failed), and even wallet analytics showing how the amount and value of coins within the wallet was changing throughout a given period.

 

You don’t need to register or create an account to see all this information. Because blockchain is public, this data can be accessed by literally anyone. Apart from personal wallet data, BscScan has a block explorer and shows the latest transactions on BSC, as well as transaction history, and even BNB market cap.

BscScan vs Smart Contracts

Among other useful features of BscScan, is smart contract verification. Just enter the contract address on BscScan and check if the code is the same as the one currently running on BSC. You can even check NFT smart contacts on this cryptocurrency explorer.

Relationship between BscScan and NFT

BscScan shows the NFTs built on Binance Smart Chain. Non-fungible tokens function similarly to crypto coins: they are located in cryptocurrency wallets and are sent or received via crypto transactions. NFTs on BSC are visible on BscScan, as well as the wallet’s address and transaction hash.

Other ways to use BscScan

Last but not least, with all the information available on this platform, BscScan is an open source for making predictions about cryptocurrency markets. Block explorer and crypto search engine features might be not very beneficial here. Nevertheless, Token Tracker coupled with such indicators as transaction amount and frequency shows the market movements. In such a way, one can make predictions about future market trends and even price fluctuations.
