tezblock, an advanced block explorer for the Tezos blockchain, an open-source platform for assets and applications backed by a global community of validators, researchers, and builders, has launched version 1 of its platform. Emerging from its MVP state, the block explorer was created by the team of AirGap, a project that enables users to turn their old smartphone into a “new” cryptocurrency hardware wallet.
“The initial version of the MVP that was announced and released back in August has evolved with a weekly pace. Many improvements and features were gradually added in that time span. Three weeks ago we took a step back and with the feedback we have gathered set out to bring the release of V1.”
