Introducing HederaExplorer

2 min readJun 8, 2022


The HBAR Foundation and Acoer are pleased to announce the collaborative launch of HederaExplorer. HederaExplorer, developed by Acoer, provides a new mirror node and rich Hedera transaction insight to support the ongoing growth of the Hedera Hashgraph ecosystem.

HederaExplorer offers a decentralized and cost effective means to store and query historical data from Hedera’s public mainnet, lowering the demand on network resources. Additionally, HederaExplorer freely offers rich visualization and real-time reporting of many Hedera transactions to allow the community to easily absorb insights on the network and its transactions. Users also have access to on-request advanced features, such as historical reporting, archives by timeframe or accounts, topic based transactions, and so on.

Acoer repurposed its award winning HashLog data management and visualization technologies, as well as a state of the art open source online analytical processing data architecture to engineer and build HederaExplorer.

“We are really delighted and proud to have delivered this innovative mirror node implementation to the Hedera community with the support of The HBAR Foundation,” said Jim Nasr, Acoer CEO. “It was a serious engineering challenge to deliver a tool that met the rapidly burgeoning storage and real-time performance needs for the mirror node, but do so in an open, architecturally scalable, and economically sustainable manner.”

Shayne Higdon, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer at the HBAR Foundation, commented: “The Hedera community needs more mirror nodes and transaction explorers to support the continued growth of the network. We are pleased to support Acoer to innovate and successfully deliver this utility to the Hedera eco system.”
