Navigating the Etherscan Homepage

A: Menu

Each menu contains a dropdown list of links to specific pages related to the topic/scope of the menu. Please refer below for the breakdown of each menu and the contents linked under them.

B: Search Bar

You can use the search bar to instantly get details on transactions, addresses (be it wallet addresses or contract addresses), tokens and projects. To search for, let's say an address, on our website, just copy and paste the address into the input box and click Search (or press Enter). Similarly, to search for a transaction, just copy and paste the transaction hash into the input box and click Search.

Alternatively, you can also type in your search phrase (do not press Enter or click Search after typing in the search phrase) and select from the recommended search results listed below the Search Bar. To narrow down the recommended results, just adjust the filter settings located next to the input box.

* Realtime Updates Toggle Switch
