Canada: A Canadian body, which is known as The National Research Council of Canada (NRC) released an announcement that it has created an Ethereum blockchain explorer.
National Research Council stated in its report that its Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP) has hosted an Ethereum blockchain explorer on the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) via the support of Bitaccess, a blockchain company. InterPlanetary File System is a platform that enables P2P data storage and data sharing on Blockchain tech.
The body added that the InterPlanetary File System guarantees that web apps are notwithstanding if the original host is offline or online.
“unalterable and can be accessed far into the future,”
Bitaccess stated that the Ethereum blockchain explorer enables people to look through the Ethereum blockchain in search of preventively published contribution data and grants.
The National Research Council of Canada continued:
“These are early days, but NRC IRAP’s experiments with blockchain are expected to provide constructive insight into the potential for this technology and how it may be used for more open and transparent operations for public programs.”
As stated in the report, in Jan., the IRAP introduced the “first live trial” of public blockchain tech on Ethereum for the Canadian government. This was done in a bid to build a better transparent administration of government contracts.
After its creation, the “first live trial” of public blockchain was reported to explore additional apps in blockchain tech. As previously reported, InterPlanetary File System intends to create a more permanent web by collecting various copies of data. The system earlier got international attention as many showed concerns at the time that the new United States administration might make data from the government agencies to disappear.
In a press release, Bitaccess co-founder, Moe Adham, stated that Bitaccess would help to
“enable constituents to participate in the verification and validation of public information.”
