Hive Explorer FAQ

Here are some common questions and solutions for the block explorer.

Why is the explorer taking so long to load?

Each week of data contains millions and millions of transactions. That's millions of database entries you need to search through when you perform a search.

You can significantly reduce loading times by narrowing down your search. Enter a specific token, or a username, or a timespan. Or enter all those things.

The more you narrow down your search, the faster it will load. Not narrowing your search might even cause your query to fail altogether.

How come my transaction doesn't show the amount of tokens received?

Not all transactions on Hive contain this data. Most manual transactions do, but not all transactions are done manually.

Sometimes transactions are created by bots. These bots are able to specify the format of their transaction, and many times will choose to set a "max slippage" instead of an "exact amount received."

If that sounds confusing, it just means that people use computer programs to create transactions. They don't need to include the amount received in their transaction record, so some transactions do not contain that data.

The amount of tokens in the transaction is incorrect!

When a transaction amount is greater than 99,999,999,999,999,999,999 we round the number down to 99,999,999,999,999,999,999 to keep things simple.

There's only so much info we can store in our databases, that number is reasonable enough in our opinion.

Some transactions are missing!

If that's the case, it might be because we are syncing the blockchain. Any missing transactions will likely show up when we are done getting caught up.

Keep in mind that as of right now, we only store the following types of transactions:
