I have completed all the achievements prior to this one. Today I am going to review Steemscan.com as the second task for achievement 5. Here we begin:
Review of Steemscan.com
1- Please explain the current Steem price and volumes on the date of submission of this review?
Today is 11-05-2021. Below is the shape of today's graph.
Now if we want to check today's price, we can check it like this - which is $1.07
This is how we can check today's Steem volume which is $63,425.74
2- Please explain What all information is shown under the latest transactions and latest blocks section?
If you scroll down a little, there are two tabs for transactions and blocks.
By clicking on the latest transactions, we can check all the details about each transaction performing on steemit.
I have highlighted all the details we can check.
On the extreme right, there's a drop-down list from where we can select the type of transaction. Types being:
- delete comment
- account update
- account update 2
- account claim
- account create
- custom JSON
- claim reward
- curation reward
- witness vote

- power down
- order create
- order cancel
Now onto latest blocks tab...
Here we can see information like who mined the block, how many transactions happened in what duration, id, and height of blocks.
3- Please explain What all information is shown under the Witnesses section and steps to vote a Witness?
Click on the witness tab from the menu.
Witnesses are like miners who create blocks through a consensus algorithm.
The following information is given when you open the witness tab at first.
Underneath, there is a table of information about witnesses. A wwitness is elected y community people, hence the votes.
To vote a witness, we have to click on the hyperlink vote which redirects us to another link confirming the transaction.
After confirmation, a posting key is required to proceed.
This is how, we can vote for a witness.
4- Please explain What is DApps and mention 3 DApps which you have already used or may use in the future as per your interest?
DApps are decentralized applications that have no single authority and can be used by anyone in any way they want.
Following are the example of DApps I like and want to use as well.
The previous achievement was about this tool. I check all the stats of mine and other accounts from Steem world as this is the best.
This one is really interesting and help you motivate to stay fit by tracking your physical activities of the day like jogging, walking, exercising etc and rewarding at the same time. I see myself trying this one in near future.
It's a decentralized video sharing platform which rewards its users for sharing videos. I have tried it once and really liked it but I am not good with video making so I had to drop.
5- Please explain How to use "Quick Convert" and what is the fee charged for different Steem amounts for withdrawal?
In the menu go to the quick convert tab.
An interface will open with details on how much steem you want to convert and into which currency.
If I want to convert 20 steem to USD then I will give these details with withdrawal address. We can see how much amount we will get and also the fee that will be charged as well. After clicking create order and giving required credentials the steem will be converted.
The fee for converting in different currencies like USDT , BTC and TRX is shared below.
6- Please explain what information is provided by the "Search" feature?
In the menu there's a search tab.
We can see there's an option for searching about transactions, blocks and accounts.
Let's say, we select transactions.
we can search about any transaction by providing respected transaction id.
Let's say, we select Block.
We want to search this block id.
We will get these results.
Similarly, we can search about accounts too. Let's say, we need information about my account.
We will get these results.
That's all about task 2. I hope I know enough and have enough understanding about this tool.
