Review a Token Contract on MaxxChain Explorer

The MaxxChain blockchain explorer is used to review transactions conducted on-chain. One major aspect for users is the ability to review a token contract which can be done based on the following steps:

1. Access MaxxChain Explorer:

Open your web browser and go to

2. Search for the Token Contract:

In the explorer search bar, enter the contract address of the token you want to review. The contract address is a unique identifier for each smart contract on the MaxxChain. You can find the token's contract address on the project's website, token sale announcement, or the projects socials. Always ensure the contract address is taken from a reputable source.

4. Explore the Token Contract:

Once you have entered the contract address and pressed Enter, the MaxxChain Explorer will display the details of the token contract. Here are some key sections you might want to explore:

- Overview: This section provides general information about the token, including its name, symbol, total supply, and decimals.

- Contract Source Code: MaxxChain Explorer allows you to view the token's smart contract source code. Click on the "Contract" tab to access the contract code if it's verified on MaxxChain Explorer. If it is verified, you will be able to access the “Read” and “Write” contract functions.

- Read Contract: Here, you can interact with the token contract by executing read-only functions. These functions won't modify the blockchain state but will provide you with information like token balance of a specific address or total supply. This section can provide, more or less, the same functionality as most dApps that are released by a project.

- Write Contract: This section allows you to interact with the token contract by executing write functions that might modify the blockchain state. This section is accessed by project owners and developers to make changes to the contract Be cautious when using this feature, as write functions usually require a gas fee.

- Events: Events are occurrences defined in the smart contract that can be recorded on the blockchain. You can explore the different events emitted by the token contract.

- Internal Transactions: MaxxChain shows the internal transactions triggered by the token contract, which can give you insights into its activity.

- Token Holders: You can see the list of addresses holding the token and the corresponding balances in this section.

- Token Transfers: This part displays the history of token transfers made between different addresses.

5. Verify Contract Source Code (if available):

If the contract source code is available and verified on MaxxChain Explorer, you can review it for transparency and security. It's essential to check the code to ensure it doesn't contain any vulnerabilities or malicious behavior.
