- An anonymous developer has published an unofficial web app called VeChainThorScan that poses as a blockchain explorer for the VeChain (VET) cryptocurrency.
- Node also helps VeChainThorScan to be fast, scalable, and handle a large number of simultaneous connection requests efficiently.
- The developer has also stated beforehand that this is one of their first projects since learning to develop full-stack web apps.
The developer states that they believe that VeChain will become the “leading global public blockchain” and claims to have been a long-time supporter and holder of VET and has considered in the causes that drive the team at VeChain.
The developer has also stated beforehand that this is one of their first projects since learning to develop full-stack web apps.
Node also helps VeChainThorScan to be fast, scalable, and handle a large number of simultaneous connection requests efficiently. At the backend, a dedicated server runs Thor Node in the cloud, which stores data into a MySQL database that stores all the data for easy manipulation and accessibility.
The app provides a clean UI and a dashboard that displays the necessary information in a concise and easy to read format. It also provides a real-time blockchain update listing that shows the blocks added to the chain and the transactions occurring on each block.
There are also well-visualized graphs that show the number of transactions and clauses, and the VeThor Token used as transaction fee. There are also detailed tabs for the charts, blocks, and the transactions, and tokens on the VeChainThor blockchain.
The app is currently in beta, and the developer hopes to be able to fix all the bugs in the app and make performance improvements before launching the full app and the VeChainThor blockchain undergoing a larger transaction volume like the developer hopes.
The upcoming features to the app as reported by the developer include a more information-dense account page that shows VET transfers, token holdings, token transfers, etc., displaying known transfer addresses, displaying the USD value of holdings/transfers, and more.
