More specifically you can browse the following blockchains: Bitcoin, Bitcoin Testnet, Ethereum, Ethereum Rinkeby, Ethereum Ropsten, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Cash Testnet, Litecoin, Litecoin Testnet, Ethereum Classic, Ethereum Classic Morden, Dogecoin, Dogecoin Testnet, Dash, Dash Testnet.
Blockexplorer.one also provides additional information about the blockchains listed above. You can use the explorer to check a blockchain’s block difficulty, block height, current price, total number of transactions and much more.
Blockexplorer one is faster, compared to some of the most popular explorers*. It also supports on average more blockchain protocols than the competitors. Another big advantage of Blockexplorer.one is that it allows you to browse both mainnets and testnets for all the supported blockchain protocols.

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.
Yes, on Blockexplorer.one you can search and view for Tokens and Token Transactions. Some of the protocols supported are ERC-20 and ERC-721.
Omni Layer is a communication protocol layer built on top of the Bitcoin blockchain. On Bitcoin’s Omni Layer you can issue custom tokens and currencies on the Bitcoin Blockchain. Said in other words, Omni layer is for Bitcoin, what Tokens are for Ethereum.

Our data is provided by Crypto APIs a blockchain and crypto API provider. The APIs used in the creation of Blockexplorer.one are Blockchain APIs (BaaS APIs) and Market Data APIs.Working with Crypto APIs guarantees that the data displayed on Blockexplorer.one is always accurate and up-to-date.
- 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
