This tool is a gateway into the Cardano Blockchain that lets you query what is inside.
A blockchain is a separate network of nodes that are connected over the internet. These are computers running dedicated software and are constantly talking to each other. They maintain a record of everything that happens on that blockchain. Each of these nodes has a complete copy of everything that exists and has ever happened on that blockchain. And all that is needed to access it a tool that links a browser to the blockchain.
Because we run a Cardano Stake pool we have nodes that are connected to the network and this tool is a link to one of those nodes. A list of sample queries to get started is provided in the column on the left - click one of them to load their content into the query section on the right.
The API behind this front-end can be used by app developers to query the blockchain, and the source code for this front-end is available at this Git Repo: Link. The backend uses the original graphql library from IOHK: Link
