Best IPFS Explorer
IPFS. Interplanetary File System. Wow! That sounds like an intergalactic bureaucracy out of a sci-fi novel, if ever there was one. Actually, it is a vital component of 2nd tier protocol building on the Ravencoin blockchain. Technically, IPFS is not “on the blockchain.” It is a distributed file sharing system, similarly as the blockchain is a distributed ledger. However, Ravencoin’s top utility is arguably its integration with IPFS, as a file attachment system. Several projects have emerged facilitating the attachment of blockchain assets to IPFS file addresses. This is how NFTs are viewable on Ravencoin. The IPFS Explorers that stand out the most are:
a) Stibits Explorer
b) MangoFarmAssets – Viewer
