Ladies and Gentlemen – introducing “Dora the Blockchain Explorer.”

This new blockchain innovation from Horizon Globex allows you to query any transaction from the Ethereum blockchain by constructing a URL in this format and you have a response within seconds.

For example, take a look at this to see how it works;

https://exploradora.io/api/BlockchainExplorer?block=0x6330dc&hash=0x7dcc50c0f3ff04a506e2d55fac9569a997421c8bbfaf93b484ea3515a7b9f673

You can similarly query Kovan by using this domain;
