I don't know what block explorer is updated in real time, but if you want to check your account, you can just type this in the terminal:

curl --request POST \
  --url https://api.eosnewyork.io/v1/chain/get_account \
  --data '{"account_name":"YOUR_ACCOUNT"}'

In regards to block explorers, the ones listed on r/eos are:

  • thanks for reply, i tried curl --request POST --url https://api.eosnewyork.io/v1/chain/get_account --data '{"account_name":"mytestacct"}' but there is an error returned {"code":500,"message":"Internal Service Error","error":{"code":0,"name":"exception","what":"unspecified","details":[{"message":"unknown key","file":"http_plugin.cpp","line_number":478,"method":"handle_exception"}]}} But when i run this command ` ./cleos get account mytestacct --json` it works. I just want to to test if my account is successfully registered in blockchain or not?

  • i have read somewhere that while creating account, we have to pay something for CPU, RAM etc? But how can i get EOS balance in fresh node? I'm able to create account with this command ./cleos create account eosio tstaccnt Publickey Publickey does it directly creates my account on blockchain? or in my node only?

  • If you're using cleos create account, then you're on a testnet with eosio.system not deployed yet. Once you deploy eosio.system, you'll create accounts with cleos system newaccount and you'll have to delegate tokens for bandwidth. However, you'll still be connected to local net, and not to the mainnet. You need to provide the appropriate mainnet genesis.json for that but it's a whole different issue that perhaps we shouldn't expand too much in the comments of this question

You could do a simple get account and see if your newly created account comes up:

cleos get account <YOURACCOUNT>

Regarding explorers, I quite like bloks.io
