Ethereum (ETH) Blockchain Explorer

This issue is sponsored by


As the overall market continued its bearish trend in June, a couple of trending topics stood out: security reminders and name domains. Infrastructure providers and wallets have been busy preparing for EIP-1559 changes. If you've been lurking on our testnet explorers, you may have noticed a change or two.

Other than EIP-1559, we've been heads down on improving our new explorers and working on new features we hope will enrich your experience on Etherscan.

In this issue our analysis article and quiz dive into the topic of name domains. As always we hope it adds new insights and (for some readers) an extra $10 in ETH!

Questions received last month:

Can ENS Names be used for phishing?
Yes. ENS supports Unicode characters which can be used to fake another name. On Etherscan, we currently display an asterisk (*) in front of any name that has Unicode characters. Names may not belong to the person popularly associated with it, e.g. elon.eth may not belong to Elon Musk.

How do I know which block explorers are created by Etherscan?
