The Free TON blockchain was launched more than a year ago. Information about everything that has happened on the platform since then is available at ton.live. There you can make sure that it is impossible to hide something in the blockchain, but it is very easy to hide someone.
Ton.live: Home Page
The website is available in Russian, English, Korean and Italian.
Here you can see the operation and status of the blockchain main network — main.ton.dev. Other networks can be selected: net.ton.dev, fld.ton.dev, rustnet.ton.dev, nil.ton.dev. We will be looking into ton.live on the main web.
There are several such block chains in Free TON. Masterchain is the main linking chain. Workchains contain auxiliary chains. Currently, there are 16 chains (shard) in Workchain 0, and their number may increase as the load increases.
Those data encapsulated in the blockchain definition are located in a visible place — in the center of the page:
- Total blocks. The number of all Free TON blocks since its launch. The value is constantly growing.
- Average block time. The rate at which new blocks appear in the network is 0.2 seconds. It is calculated as the generation time of one block, which is 4-5 seconds, divided by the number of blocks in all shardchains generated during this time.
- Total supply. TON Crystals balance on all network accounts. These are all issued funds, including those that are not distributed between validators and users but are located on distributing smart contracts — givers. In total, there are more than 5 billion TONs.
- Circulating supply. Crystals on user accounts, without validator funds and the balance of givers.
- Total accounts.The total number of open accounts or user wallets.
- New accounts 24h. Accounts that were opened in the last 24 hours.
- Active DePools. DePools that have crystals on the balance. Validators open depools and collect funds in them from all users who are willing to lock in their finances for accruing interest — staking. Validators with the largest amount in the DePool account participate in the formation of blocks of the cycle and are rewarded for this work.
- DePools stakes. The amount locked in DePool accounts. It includes the stakes of validators and depositors of their DePools.
- Validators. All validators of the Free TON ecosystem. At the time of this review — 438.
- Total staked. The amount locked in the Elector validator selection smart contract. This number is higher than the DePools stakes due to the fact that not all validators open a DePool for fundraising.
- Rewards yield p.a.. The amount accrued to holders of funds in DePools. It varies from cycle to cycle and fluctuates around 5%. Holders of funds in depools receive income minus a small validator fee (usually 5% of the total reward). That is, if the annual yield is 5%, then the DePool depositor will receive 5% * 95% = 4.75%.
- Total rewards 30 days. The amount of reward accrued to the validators by the election smart contract.
- Ordinary transactions total. All transactions in the Free TON network since its launch. Tick-tock transactions are excluded, which do not transfer funds, but show the functionality of smart contracts.
- Ordinary transactions 24h. Transactions recorded in the blockchain in the last 24 hours. Excluding tick-tock transactions.
At the bottom of the home page are the last 5 transaction blocks recorded in the blockchain and 5 messages.One normal transaction requires 1 incoming message and results in 0 to several outgoing messages, and some transactions can result in hundreds of outgoing messages. They can be opened to see the details: which transactions and messages were in each block. And it shows the amount and addresses between which the tokens were transferred.
Ton.live Search Engine: Revealing Secrets
In the search box, you can enter the ID of a transaction, message, account or block. The search engine will find them and show the associated data.
For example, if a transaction ID was entered, the transfer amount, the wallet address of the sender, and the recipient will be visible. In the case of a wallet, the current account balance and all operations that were performed with it will be displayed.
With all the openness in the blockchain, it is impossible to find out personal information about the owners of accounts and wallets. Blockchain doesn’t collect data when accounts are created, which means it can’t share it either.
Let’s Run Through The Sections
The section stores messages, information about blocks and transactions.
The Blocks subsection contains information about all Free TON blocks and data about their formation: total blocks, average block time, blocks by current validators, and workchain shards. Each block can be opened to see what transactions and messages it is formed of.
The Messages subsection includes all Free TON blockchain messages, as well as their Messages count and Current MPS.
The Transactions subsection gives access to all transactions in the Free TON, their Transactions count, and Current TPS. Information on each transaction is available for viewing.
The section includes subsections Accounts and Smart Contracts.
In the Accounts subsection, the addresses of all accounts and detailed information about each are available. It also shows the total number of Accounts, Free TON Crystals, Circulating supply, On givers.
The Smart Contracts subsection contains the available smart contracts in the blockchain and detailed information about each of them. Here you can see the TON.Surf wallet smart contract and other wallets, Elector, which selects validators for the current validation cycle, and more.
This section is a must-see for those who are going to invest in DePool. Let us explain. The DePools subsection shows information about each DePool, including the amount of the validator assurance. The higher this amount is, the greater the chance of earning, rather than losing some amount of your funds to validator fees.
If you open the details of a DePool, then in addition to the parameters of the DePool itself, including the share of successful rounds and the average slashing score, you can see information on its depositors — the size and types of each depositor stake and how much they have already earned in that DePool. In the Rounds tab, you can see how the total DePool stake is distributed by even and odd rounds, as well as the status of the last rounds.
The Validators subsection provides information on the validator election status, the number of current validators participating in the election, and the timing of validator elections for the next validation cycle. The page lists all validators in descending order of their stakes.
If you open the details of each validator, you can see detailed information about its type (DePool or Single), how it participated in the election, how it validates, etc.
The Slashing score subsection is not working yet, but it implies that after launching it you can learn about the slashing procedure — a system of penalties for validators for low-quality work.
At the moment, the procedure works partially: not all validators are read in one cycle. This page simulates the validator slashing stats in consensus (the lower the final score, the better) without applying real penalties. In practice, validators will be slashed after the critical threshold of 0.66 points is exceeded. While validators with bad statistics can draw some conclusions for themselves to improve their performance.
For the convenience of using ton.live, at the top of the page there are filters-tags with which you can filter the lists of blocks, transactions, etc. by different parameters. In addition, you can update the lists in real time with the Update button and sort the list items in ascending and descending order with the sorting arrow at the top right of the list. The filtered lists can be exported to a separate file using the Export to csv button.
