Navigating the explorer using the search bar
As you may notice, there are various 'tabs' and clickable links, however another useful feature is the search bar.
By default, each explorer page essentially lists summaries, but you can go to a specific coin block, transaction, or summary starting point
by entering requests ino the search bar.
The following types of requests are available:
- block height
Enter a simple block number, and if that block exists you will be shown a page
summarizing details about the block along with clickable one line summaries of the transactions within that block.
There will be reverse and forward arrows you can use to go the previous or next block.
There will be an information icon you can use to get the 'raw' block information from the blockchain.
- block hash
- transaction hash
- yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm
Example: 2012-2-7 16:20
Raw block and transaction data store date/time stamps in a 10 digit value representing seconds elapsed since 1970-01-01 00:00 (UTC.)
Such time values may be entered directly into the search bar and just like the yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm format will display a list of any transactions
found within 10 minutes before or after that time.
The first blockchain time stamp to ever exist would be the original Bitcoin genesis block at 1231006505 (2009-01-03 13:15), any time values entered before this are invalid.
