I've built an EVM-compatible blockchain using Substrate and connected it with Metamask and PolkadotJs explorer. But I want a more user-friendly explorer that users with a non-technical background can also use to view their transactions, like etherscan. Are there any open-source explorers out there that are compatible with Substrate-based EVM chains? Thank you!

  • Have you tried connecting any evm explorers to the RPC?

  • Nice. Successful? If so, I think you could answer your own question with some suggestions :)

Yes, there is an open source indexer and explorer called Blockscout, which is fairly user-friendly. You can use for your Substrate-based EVM chain.

Here are some examples of its usage by Moonbeam parachain and CloudWalk solochain.
