During the last couple of weeks we've explored a couple of paid block explorer services and after technical investigation we decided to signup at cryptoID.
They finished integration and our second block explorer is availabe at:

https://chainz.cryptoid.info/gali/

They offer so far the best experience for large and long chains with some additional features like top wallet estimation which is little bit different compared to rich lists.
We will continue to use their service and it becomes our second official explorer.

Our friends from Bulwark Technology have added Galilel to their masternode hosting platform.
If you are looking for a cheap, reliable and trustful hosting platform, give it a try!
You can get your instant Galilel masternode at:

We added support to show budget proposals for governance purposes in a separate table in v0.2.0 of our block explorer.
Once user click on this icon, he can see the current running budget proposals.
This is necessary requirement for proper DAO implementation and transparency.
There is a pull request open for the upstream merging, but ours differs in the following way:

1. We removed created column because it is mis-leading, it refers to last db update time.
2. We introduced storing of blockStart and blockEnd, in case of budget proposals running for several months it is needed.
3. We show information about payout amounts, this is what everybody wants to know.
4. We show payout amounts in relation to budget period, so monthly payout, already paid budget and total budget over the proposal period.
5. We use same throttle mechanism as for masternode list which makes client rendering ~4 times faster.

PS: Everyone who has not yet voted for the budget proposals is highly requested to do it.
 

During the last couple of weeks we had several issues with our block explorer.
First of all there was a mandatory requirement to replace it since old explorer doesn't support Zerocoin in a proper way and doesn't
work well with long (>600k blocks) and large (>2GB) chains.
We decided to fork the BWK explorer as replacement. However this explorer had a couple of issues itself which we fixed in current version (v0.1.5).
Major changes are so far:

- Added support for showing stake amount and restake amount (original BWK shows only restake amount, which is confusing for non-technical users)
- Added support for showing correct balance, received and sent amount (original BWK shows only balance accumulated by the last 100 TX, also confusing to non-technical users)
- Added support for syncing chains with broken Zerocoin spends, necessary because we test a lot of features and vulnerabilities on testnet
- Added systemd files (daemon, web, timers) to use modern Linux service infrastructure
- Added Arch Linux package build definition for deterministic builds as part of infrastructure runs on it
- Several UI glitches have been fixed (incorrect padding of buttons)
- Replaced Yarn with npm to avoid using Facebook's registry mirror We are very happy about the new explorer and we believe it is a significant
infrastructure improvement and kindly invite users to fork it, who need one.
Pull requests are highly appreciated.
