4. Read the Smart Contract
On the blockchain explorer, you will find many attributes. Each attribute contains specific information about the NFT.
Contract Creator: This attribute contains the transaction ID (TxID) of the NFT creator. Clicking on this TxID will display the details, such as when the NFT was created, the confirmed blocks, the transaction fee and the smart contract ID.
Token Tracker: Token tracker attributes contain NFT’s maximum total bid, total holders, and total transactions so far, along with transaction details.
It also contains the official website and social profiles of the NFT creator.
Transactions: The Transactions tab records all transactions in real time along with From and To addresses, timestamps, transaction fee, method, and blocks.
The Method attribute on the Transactions tab has three statuses: Set Approval for All, Mint, and Transfer From. It is updated based on the decoded input.
Internal Txn: Internal transactions are transactions between smart contracts. You can see the From and To addresses, timestamp, block, and value.
Contract: This is where you can see, read and interact with the NFT’s smart contract. The Contract tab has three subtabs named Code, Read Contract, and Write Contract.
Under the “Code”, you can find the complete source code of the smart contract. On the Read Contract tab, you can read the smart contract by method. To use the Write Contract feature, you must connect the Web 3 wallet. Keep in mind that this Web 3 wallet connection feature is a beta version, so use it with caution.
Analysis: This tab features multiple charts detailing your Ether balance, transactions, TxnFees, Ether transfers, and token transfers. It also has a new feature called Txn Heatmap.
In addition to these attributes, you can also find ERC20 Token Txns, ERC721 Token Txns, events and comments, which are less important than the attributes we have explained.
