Beaconcha.in is an open source Ethereum 2.0 explorer which makes the beacon chain accessible to non-technical users.
In addition, beaconcha.in provides an open source mobile app for iOS and android for validator monitoring.
The vision of beaocncha.in is to not rely on closed-source explorers; everyone should be able to run its local explorer and not trust third parties.
Beaconcha.in is not only an explorer. Due to the upcoming change from PoW to PoS, there has been demand by individual node operators to have an easy to use node/machine monitoring tool. For that
Nowadays, the UX of a specific blockchain is highly dependent on its explorers.
Fear spreads among the community the moment an explorer is down, even though the network is unaffected.
To tackle this problem, we are building an open source beaconchain explorer.
Additionally, with the upcoming change to PoS, home-staking should be the gold standard for staking on Ethereum. Thus, beaconcha.in has an open source mobile app to monitor their validators, so individuals can stake with a peace of mind when they’re not at home.
- Basic visualization of blocks and epochs
- Public API endpoints

- Dashboard for validator monitoring
- Various tools to export income for tax purposes 
- Notification center for
- Validator duties (missed attestations, block proposal, slashed, sync committee)
- Client updates (geth, besu, nethermind, Lighthouse, Prysm, Teku, Nimbus)
- Machine monitoring (CPU spikes, Memory, Storage)

Beaconcha.in mobile app (iOS & android)
Over the past 2 years, beaconcha.in has become the go-to explorer for researchers, developers and end-users.
Compared to PoW, the beaconchain has a lot of data that needs to be proccessed every epoch (6.4 minutes). Beaconcha.in will require frequent database improvements to be able to display recent data from the beacon chain…
All of the mentioned features (Product Features) are fully implemented and can be used today.
As of today, there is only one (closed source) explorer with similar features, https://beaconscan.com/.
Beaconcha.in was founded by bitfly gmbh, and is currently maintained by 3 developers.
What the funds are used for
The funds will be solely used for server costs and maintenance. Currently, beaconcha.in supports 3 networks (Mainnet, Prater and Ropsten).
