What is the difference between a mainnet explorer and a testnet explorer?

The term mainnet refers to the main blockchain network of a currency. A Testnet is where transactions have no monetary value and are free; it’s used purely as a testing network.

What is the difference between confirmed and unconfirmed transactions?

Unconfirmed transaction are the ones that are not yet included in a block. Depending on the blockchain and on the network congestion, a transaction might need a few minutes to get at least one confirmation. In some cases a transaction can remain unconfirmed for longer period of times, for example if the fee paid is too low.

Confirmed transactions are transactions that are already included in a block.

Do you show Token Transactions and information for Ethereum?

Glossary

- Block: a record of some or all of the most recent transactions that have not yet been recorded in any prior blocks.
- Transaction: a transfer of value that is broadcast to the network and collected into blocks. Transactions are not encrypted, so it is possible to browse and view every transaction ever collected into a block.
- Difficulty: shows how long it will take miners to mine and add a new block to the blockchain.
- Block height: is the number of a block. Numbers are always consecutive.
- Block size: is the size in bytes that each block has. The size is determined by the size of the transactions contained in it
- Block reward: is the amount that a miner will receive for successfully mining a block
