Let's say I send a transaction to smart contract which functions cause Ether to be send to another EOA. The Ether that the EOA receives must obliviously stem from a transaction. How would that transaction look like in Etherscan? Who would be the sender? I feel like I am basing my question on a false assumption...


  • What is your question exactly? How to see in Etherscan that a transaction has the behaviour you describe? If that's the case, you should just go to the transaction page in Etherscan and check the "Tokens transferred" section. Mar 4, 2021 at 17:30
  • @FrancoVictorio If an EOA receives Ether from a smart contract, how is this described in Etherscan? Will it just be a transaction between the sending EOA (initiator or txn) and the receiving EOA?

  • I think you can go to the receiver EOA page and then look in the Internal transactions tab. Mar 5, 2021 at 14:58
  • @FrancoVictorio Got it, thanks!
