Choose a network

When you start Sui Explorer, it displays the transactions for the Devnet network by default. You can also use the Explorer to view data for a local network running in your environment or a custom RPC endpoint URL. Use the drop-down menu at the top-right of the page to choose a different network.

Finding your transaction

You can search for the transactions using an address, object ID, or transaction ID. For example, you can search for your wallet address to confirm a transaction or view additional details about a transaction you’ve approved. See Sui Wallet to learn how to create a wallet.

  2. Click the clipboard icon to copy your wallet address.
  3. Open the Sui Explorer.

The Explorer displays the Address details page for your wallet address. You should see the same transaction in Explorer that you see in your wallet history. Click on a transaction to view the details for it.
