The TezQuery graph explorer exposes the Tezos blockchain as a graph data structure where accounts are linked
Two kinds of Tezos accounts can hold tokens and can be transaction source or destination:
implicit accounts (addresses starting with "tz1", "tz2", or "tz3")
that are represented as blue nodes in the graph;
smart contracts (addresses starting with "KT1") that are represented
as orange nodes in the graph.
A transaction is seen as a directed edge between two accounts. It is represented as a gray arrow starting from the source account (the sender) and pointing to the
target account (the transaction destination). For instance:
A single transaction between an implicit account and a smart contract,
where the implicit account sends tokens to the smart contract.
A pattern with 4 transactions in which one implicit account (in the
middle) receives tokens from 3 different smart contracts, and
sends tokens to another implicit account.
A pattern with 7 transactions between 8 implicit accounts, where a single
account (in the middle) sends tokens to 7 other accounts.
Clicking on an account in the graph displays more information such as the addresses of related accounts, and (in
the property window) its own address, the current XTZ balance and metadata information when available.
When using advanced exploration features, the graph explorer also uses
cluster representations to simplify the layout and facilitate the graph exploration. Clusters can be either
homogeneous (an homogeneous cluster regroups accounts of the same kind) or mixed (when it regroups at least one
implicit account and one smart contract, and possibly more of each kind). For instance, you may encounter the
Cluster regrouping 2 implicit accounts.
Cluster of 3 implicit accounts from
which tokens were sent to another single
Cluster of 4 implicit accounts connected
(in both directions) to another
Cluster of 7 implicit accounts.
Homogeneous cluster of implicit accounts
with a transaction to another
Homogeneous cluster of smart contracts
with tokens sent to an implicit account.
Cluster of 2 smart contracts with tokens
sent to an implicit account.
Mixed cluster containing 2 smart
contracts and 4 implicit accounts.
Medium-size mixed cluster containing a rather balanced number of implicit
accounts and smart contracts, with transaction to
an implicit account.
Large mixed cluster containing a high proportion of implicit accounts and
few smart contracts, with transaction to a single smart contract.
Cluster representations can be formed automatically by clicking on the "group singles" button on the main menu bar.
Custom clusters can also be created using the "select" and then the "merge" tools of the menu bar. Any cluster can be
split at anytime by using the "select" and then the "split" tools (see the menu bar help for more
Exploration from one account
When exploring from one account, the origin of the
exploration (which can be an account of any kind) is marked in green, for instance:
