QuickNode introduces the Otterscan Addon, an open-source explorer User Interface (UI) for fast, private, and seamless blockchain interactions. This tool depends on
ots_* RPCs of Erigon, and does not require a database or an indexer, making it an incredibly efficient and user-friendly tool.
How to Use QuickNode's Otterscan Addon
Install the Otterscan Addon: The first step to using Otterscan is to install the addon. This process is straightforward and should take just a few seconds.
Get the Explorer URL: The explorer URL is prefixed with your endpoint name. For instance, if your endpoint is
https://[your-endpoint-name].quiknode.pro/, then your Otterscan UI link will be
https://[your-endpoint-name].ots.quiknode.pro/. You can grab this from the add-ons tab, like so:
With the above two steps, you'll have your personal, fast, and private Ethereum explorer up and running!
