Guide to Tracking Your Ethereum Transactions with Native Ethereum Tools

In this article, we explore the essentials of Ethereum transactions and how to monitor them using specific Ethereum-based tools. For those new to the blockchain realm, an Ethereum transaction refers to the transfer of Ethereum-based assets between two wallet addresses, with the possibility of being either the sender or receiver. To facilitate this, Ethereum employs a decentralized platform, enhancing transparency by allowing public access to transaction data. Transactions are verified by network validators, added to a block, and permanently recorded on the blockchain, usually within 15 seconds to five minutes, depending on network congestion and transaction fees.

To monitor these transactions, tools such as Etherscan, Ethplorer, and EthVM are highlighted. Etherscan, established in 2015, provides comprehensive access to blockchain data. Ethplorer offers insights into Ethereum transactions and balances for Ethereum and ERC20 tokens without needing to access your wallet. EthVM, designed by the MyEtherWallet team, emphasizes user experience, allowing for easy tracking of blockchain transactions and portfolio analytics.

The article further explains the process of checking transactions with each tool, involving entering your Ethereum public address on their respective websites to access transaction histories, balances, and token information. Additionally, it addresses what happens when a transaction fails due to low gas prices, suggesting resubmission with a higher gas fee to ensure validation.

Understanding and utilizing these tools can significantly enhance one’s mastery of Ethereum transactions, ensuring smooth transfers and smart contract deployments. The growth in Ethereum transactions, as noted with a 7.85% increase from 2022 to 2023, underscores the expanding use and importance of Ethereum in the digital asset ecosystem. 🌐💼🔍
