These services help users optimize gas prices to ensure your transactions process efficiently and timely. To prevent fee front running and negative feedback loops of gas estimators, it's best to program conservative gas prices into wallets and dapps.
A blockchain explorer is a browser for the blockchain, similar to how we have browsers like Brave Browser and FireFox for internet web pages. All cryptocurrency users rely on blockchain explorers to track their transactions. Browse the list of Ethereum Classic explorers to find an interface that you like and add it to your bookmarks.
Network monitors provide insights into the network's health like providing analysis on miners, nodes, network performance, user activity. Additionally, these tools alert to network attacks like a 51% attack.
Faucets are Ethereum Classic public services that allow you to obtain small amounts of testnet ETC for deploying contracts and testing transactions in a sandbox environment. If you're a developer, please consider contributing to these testnets by running nodes and mining on the networks. It's a selfless and charitable act for the greater Ethereum Classic ecosystem.
