Checking Your Balance

2 min read

It’s easy to check your balance and transaction history on an Ethereum blockchain explorer like Etherscan or Ethplorer.


These websites offer a full history of your activity. All you have to do is search your public Ethereum address, which is the 42 character string beginning with ‘0x’. It is not recommended to unlock your wallet on a wallet interface like MEW every time you’d like to check your balance, for the security of your information.

Be aware that when checking balances from different blockchains, like ETC, you will need to use a different blockchain explorer.

Etherscan

Step 1. Head to Etherscan.io.

Step 2. In the search bar, enter your Ethereum public address, (0x…..).

Step 3. You will be taken to a wallet overview.

  • At the top, you will see the checksummed version of your address. To learn about the difference between checksummed and non-checksummed addresses, click here.
  • In the ‘Overview’ section, you will see your ETH balance and value.
  • Under ‘Token’, you can find your Token Balances. When looking for custom token information, this is where you can select a specific token to find its contract address, decimal count, and symbol. To learn more about adding custom tokens to MEW, click here.
  • The tabs at the bottom of the screen show the history of ETH, ERC20 token, and ERC721 token transactions.

Ethplorer

Step 1. Head to Ethplorer.io.

Step 2. In the search bar, enter your Ethereum public address, (0x…..).

Step 3. You will be taken to a wallet overview.

  • To the left, you will see the checksummed version of your address. To learn about the difference between checksummed and non-checksummed addresses, click here.
  • You can also find your ETH balance to the left, under ‘Address Information’.
  • To the right, you can find your Token Balances. When looking for custom token information, this is where you can select a specific token to find its contract address, decimal count, and symbol. To learn more about adding custom tokens to MEW, click here.
  • The bottom of the screen shows the history of ETH, ERC20 token, and ERC721 token transactions. You can apply filters if you want to see just ETH or tokens, using tick marks at the top.
