The problem LibreScan solves
The foundation of blockchain technology is decentralization. Unfortunately, the reality is that 95% of the crypto community relies on centralized services like Etherscsan, BscScan, etc.
These centralized blockchain explorers not only track their users, associate their wallets with their IP addresses, but also mean a critical central point of failure.
The reality is that if a government would ever want to ban cryptocurrencies they could disable only these services and cut off 95% of users since there will be no graphical user interface available.

What is the difference between LibreScan and BscScan?
BscScan is a centralized closed-source blockchain explorer built for the Binance Smart Chain (BSC). LibreScan is a decentralized (self-hosted) open-source blockchain explorer which can be used for any blockchain in the future without censorship risk, privacy violations, and centralization.
How can I connect LibreScan with any blockchain?
LibreScan will be compatible with all Ethereum RPC based blockchains in its first release followed by the next iteration which will allow custom RPC scrapers to be implemented to support any blockchain that might exist.
What are the hardware requirements of LibreScan?
LibreScan comes in multiple tiers depending on what level of details the user needs: for simple transaction checking, balance lookups, etc. even a Raspberry Pi is sufficient.
For monitoring deep level insights like specific storage keys, state transitions, etc. you will need an expensive high-end server.
How is it possible to run a blockchain explorer on my PC?
Depending on the operation mode your PC will run a blockchain node. This can be an ultra-light node for basic requirements or a full-archive node for every possible scenario.
When will LibreScan be available?
Since it is an open-source community-backed project, the start of the publicly available LibreScan depends on the community. The foundation team expects the launch in Q2 2022.
When did the LibreScan movement start?
LibreScan was announced on December 22, 2021.
