First off, you’re going to need to set up a full node of your target crypto for other users to have access to. There are various guides on how exactly it is done, the details differing from one OS to another and from one crypto to another, but generally the first thing you need to consider is getting yourself some strong hardware: otherwise, there will be issues. After downloading the software you need and synchronizing your new full node with the existing network, time to move on to the next step: opening P2P or RPC ports. What’s next? After that, you should find a proper explorer for your cryptocurrency. NOWNodes supports transparency and disclosure, which is why it is important to have access to all information regarding the blocks.
