Block explorer and analytics platform for Ethereum, Etherscan, has acquired a prominent block explorer for the Solana ecosystem, according to an announcement made on Wednesday.

In a statement dated January 3, Etherscan announced that it had acquired Solana’s top block explorer as part of its ongoing efforts to improve the accessibility of blockchain data across multiple networks.
