Verify & Publish Contract Source Code

When tracking our contract on the XDC Network, we can do so by either using the last transaction hash or by pasting the contract’s address into the search bar of the XDC Network - BlocksScan Explorer. However, upon clicking the Contract tab, only the contract’s bytecode is displayed. This indicates that to utilize it via this block explorer, we must “verify” our smart contract on the XDC Network.

If the contract address isn't automatically filled in, input it into the first field. Choose "Contract Licence" and then, from the “Compiler Type” dropdown, select “Solidity (Flattened Source Code)”. Next, in the “Compiler” dropdown, select the Solidity compiler version used for compiling the smart contract before deployment, such as version 0.8.18. Proceed to select the appropriate "EVM Version".

Now, paste the contract’s source code into the “Source Code” input box and click on the “Verify and Publish” button.
