Here comes another update from Telos Core Development. Today we would like to focus on significant updates we have released this week for both of our block explorers.

For Teloscan, the latest release is a significant milestone, as we now also integrated sign-in functionality for MetaMask, Anchor, and Wombat, which allows read/write interaction with smart contracts. This integration was anticipated for a long and closed a sizeable functional gap to etherscan.

The read and write functions are an advanced control panel for any validated contract, with the same abilities the dApp UI would offer. Of course, in a much less user-friendly way.

Since these features offer direct access to the smart contract, they allow execution of features unavailable in the UI or if the front end is down, which often happens for NFT mints or token sales.

Teloscan release notes in detail:

Added a feature to sign in with Anchor

  • Allows transactions for EVM addresses linked to Telos native accounts as needed.
  • Tokens airdropped to these linked addresses can now be transferred to the standalone Metamask addresses.
  • If tokens are accidentally sent to these linked addresses, they can now be sent back to standalone Metamask addresses, NFTs included. There have been various user reports of tokens being lost this way. It is now possible to recover these tokens and NFTs.

Added a feature to sign in with MetaMask

  • MetaMask is the first Web 3 wallet integration. We will add more compatible wallets shortly.
  • The Teloscan Web 3 features are soon leveraged for various user interactions in addition to the contract interface (i.e., checking approvals and revoking, WTLOS wrap/unwrap, and other base layer network functionality)

Added read function to query validated contracts

  • You can now call any read-only smart contract function without logging in, such as confirming token balances or decimal/symbol.

Added a write function to interact with validated contracts and execute smart contract functions, such as Burn, Mint, or Transfer

  • The features grant access to smart contracts even if their respective UI is unavailable. It also allows addresses linked to native accounts to interact as described above.
  • Experienced users can use the write functions to send tokens.
  • Enhanced overall read/write interface and added advanced decimal selection for token transactions.
  • For any AMOUNT type of contract parameter, users can select the number of decimals and enter the amount. To make a token amount accurate, no need to “add 18 zeros” manually.
  • Enhanced contract code view interface
  • The code view is now alongside the Read/Write views for all validated contracts.

Note: Please remember that read/write functions are only available for verified smart contracts on Telos EVM.

New Open Block Explorer version released

For the Open Block Explorer (OBE), this was the second release, which extended the functionality widely, now offering to sign in with Anchor and send tokens next to the basic features of the last release.

OBE release notes in detail:

  • Added a feature to sign in with Anchor
  • It is now possible to send tokens from your native account.
  • The account page was further improved and the UI adjusted.
  • We have implemented various changes and improvements on the backend.
  • We have implemented a full test schedule.
  • The next iteration will include Staking and further user experience improvements.

We are thrilled that we have been able to push wallet connections for both explorers with these releases and work hard further to improve the infrastructure for our leading network and EVM.
We invite you to support the ongoing development of our native open-source block explorer for any developers out there; please feel free to contribute to the code base:
All the best, and stay healthy!
