Use Sirato Blockchain Explorer

Sirato Blockchain Explorer supports public and private EVM networks. This page describes how to use the free version of Sirato with its built-in support for privacy-enabled Besu networks created using the Developer Quickstart.

Sirato provides an overview of the entire network, including block information, contract metadata, transaction searches, and more.


You must connect to one of the privacy nodes (for example, member1besu), not the dedicated RPC, in order to allow access for Besu privacy API methods. In production networks, you must secure access to RPC nodes.

The repository contains Docker Compose scripts to allow Sirato to start with a Developer Quickstart test network.
