Estonia, Tallinn / December 21, 2021 / The team behind QANplatform announces LibreScan, the first open-source self-hosted Decentralized Blockchain Explorer (DBE). Cryptocurrency holders will soon be able to self-host their blockchain explorer to ensure their private information can not be associated with their wallet addresses to avoid centralized tracking.
The foundation of blockchain technology is decentralization. Unfortunately, the reality is that 95% of the crypto community relies on centralized services like Etherscsan or BscScan. According to website analytics tool Similarweb, the two most used centralized block explorers are in the top 1,500 visited websites globally, with 43-61 Million total visits in November 2021.
These centralized blockchain explorers not only track their users, associate their wallets with their IP addresses but also mean a critical central point of failure. If a government ever wants to ban cryptocurrencies, they could disable only these services and cut off 95% of users since there will be no graphical user interface available.
The community developed LibreScan aims to give an open-source tool for the cryptocurrency users and let them run a blockchain explorer on their PC without any centralized authority. Developers will contribute to the open-source project where they can connect any blockchain platform with LibreScan.
“We need a quick and joint approach to eradicate the only real centralized point of failure threat to secure the accessibility and privacy of all actors in the crypto community. As we have seen recently, one key gatekeeper’s failure could cause massive interruptions in the whole ecosystem. This is the reason why we would like to invite every key market player and individual programmer to the community-driven development to create the first truly free, open-source and self-hosted Decentralized Blockchain Explorer (DBE) called LibreScan.” — Johann Polecsak, Co-Founder and CTO of QANplatform
LibreScan is the first open-source self-hosted Decentralized Blockchain Explorer (DBE) founded by QANplatform, built by the crypto community for the community. Developers will be able to contribute to the open-source project where they can connect any blockchain platform with LibreScan. Cryptocurrency users will be able to run their own blockchain explorer on a PC and always have secure access to their blockchain explorer without being tracked.
