Waves Blockchain Launches the Latest Version (2.0) of its Native Explorer
According to a post on Medium, the dev team over at Waves has formally announced the release of its latest Waves Explorer. According to the blog post, the latest version of the platform comes packed with a number of major updates — including a drastic overhaul of the platform’s native UI. Additionally, the new iteration of the ‘block-explorer’ also comes loaded with a number of stability patches that provide users with an enhanced visual and aural experience (especially for those using the platform via their mobile devices).

Other Key Aspects Worth Noting:
- All New User-Interface: According to the Waves frontend team, they have created an interface that is not only more well-defined but is also far more user friendly. In addition to this, the dev team also claims that the overall experience for the application is now quite analogous to how other apps within the Waves ecosystem work. As a result of this, it is now much easier for customers to check for their transactions on the Waves blockchain (via their smartphone devices).
- Network Settings: Another key aspect of the update is that the new Explorer now allows users to switch seamlessly between the firm’s ‘MainNet and TestNet’. If that wasn't enough, there is also a new tool that makes it easy for users to configure the explorer so as to devise their very own ‘custom network’ (this essentially means that users now have the power to track any network or node that they may wish to choose).
- Stability: Last but not least, the Waves team has made a concerted effort to enhance the quality of their code by getting rid of unnecessary API calls as well as through the use of new data libraries. As a result of these small improvements, loading times for key functional components within the network have been greatly optimized.
Owing to all of the aforementioned modifications, Waves has now officially become one of the fastest blockchain explorers in the world.
Tools such as these are quite important for the growth of a blockchain ecosystem. With that being said, the Waves dev team is already setting its sights on the future— with the team now working on new APIs that will allow them to “display the distribution of tokens by addresses” as well as to allow users to look at their “history of balance change” with the touch of a button.
Last but not least, the Waves backend team also wants to add a “map of the distribution of network nodes around the world” to their platform so as to make their offering more appealing to the average crypto enthusiast.
