I recently shared with you an article about different usages of block explorers.
In short, a block explorer can help you with the following things:
Watch the block/transaction feed
See transaction history of a given address
See the input and output of transactions
Check mempool status
View the genesis block
And as I mentioned in that article, each blockchain has its own explorer.

Bitcoin is still the king of all cryptos (at the time of this writing, let’s take a look at some of the most popular and most useful Bitcoin blockchain explorers out there.
