Etherscan Connect

Etherscan Connect: A Beginning

We are lucky to have a community of users actively contributing to us and  to each other. At times, some of these efforts can go unnoticed. What better way to recognize this than by building it on Etherscan?

Etherscan Connect allows you to share your profile, follow other users, publish your own name tags and highlight others'. A leaderboard on the main page highlights top users as selected by all Etherscaners.

This is merely the beginning. We'd like you to try it out and tell us how you want to see it grow. To add a bit of fun, we'll give a shout out to the user with the most Liked Name Tags in next month's newsletter!
