Since launching the Epirus blockchain explorer on the Azure Marketplace earlier this year, many people have asked us if it would be made available on the AWS Marketplace. The wait is finally over! We’re pleased to announce that from today Epirus is available in the AWS Marketplace.
The Epirus blockchain explorer and smart contract registry is the go-to platform for both business and technical users for working with blockchain networks. It supports Hyperledger Besu, Quorum and other Ethereum based networks .
