You can look up your Polkadot (or Kusama) transaction history on block explorers like Subscan or Polkaholic. In this article, we will use these two explorers as an example, but there are more block explorers you can use.


How to Find Your Account on Block Explorers 

Directly from Block Explorers

You can go to the block explorer you want to use directly and find your account there. On most block explorers, you find your account by its address through the search field. Some, like SubID, let you connect your account through a browser extension.

On Subscan, you can paste your address in the search field and click "Search." You can choose the network first from the top right corner or next to the search field:

Or you can look your account up on multiple chains and choose the network later:

Polkaholic will welcome you with a search box and information of all the covered networks. You can paste your account address in the search field and hit enter:

The next screen will show the account address (1) in its Substrate format (visit the articles "My Address Starts with “5” or a Capital Letter, Not “1” as It Should" and "Can I Use the Same Account on Polkadot, Kusama, and Parachains?" to know more about accounts formats), the the balance of the account on each network (2) and tabs with the activities of the account categorized by type (3):

Through Polkadot-JS UI

You can see your account on a block explorer from your Accounts page on Polkadot-JS UI. There are several block explorers to choose from. You can see the buttons by clicking on your account's name:

Or on the arrow next to your account:

Clicking on any of the block explorer buttons will take you to your account's page on the chosen explorer, displaying the information from the correct network.

How to See Your Account History

On Subscan

By default, the Extrinsics tab will be open, which includes any extrinsics signed from your account (including staking, voting, etc.). Switch to the Transfers tab if you'd like to see only your incoming and outgoing transfers:

If you have a lot of transactions, click the "View all" button to see the full history, and make sure to check all the pages.

On Polkaholic

By default, the Overview tab will be open, which includes only the account balance on each network. Clicking on the tabs "Transfers" and "XCM Transfers" will show incoming and outgoing balance transfers within the same network or among different networks (learn more about XCM in our wiki article). Switch to the "Extrinsics" tab if you'd like to see any extrinsics signed from your account (including those related to staking, voting, etc.):
