CoinMarketCap, a popular analytical service, has launched its own block explorer for the two  cryptocurrencies with the biggest capitalization - Bitcoin and Ethereum.

In terms of functionality, the explorer from CoinMarketCap is not much different from similar products on the market. On the service page you can see general information about Bitcoin and Ethereum, including market capitalization, the number of coins in circulation, hashrate and the maximum amount of cryptocurrency supply.

BitPay is consistently at the forefront of using cryptocurrency to solve real-world problems and offer our global customers the best options to accept and pay with multiple blockchain assets. As one of the largest crypto currencies by market cap and one used by thousands of companies, Ethereum is the next logical choice.
