What is Ethereum Accounts? Tokenview Block Explorer

We talk about the blockchain accounts that means the blockchain wallet addresses. Ethereum accounts has two types: contract accounts and externally owned accounts(EOAs).

Externally Owned Accounts are similar to Bitcoin addresses and are controlled by private keys. Ethereum accounts also have both public and private addresses for users to interact with to transfer ether. Contract accounts, which are used to communicate with smart contracts, are controlled by their contract code and are activated through an EOA. Ether is required for every transaction on the network (contract accounts and EOAs) to prevent malicious attacks, such as network spamming.

Tokenview Block Explorer enables users to search the Ethereum Addresses.
