The National Research Council (NRC) of the Government of Canada has announced the creation of the Ethereum Blocks Browser.
It is reported that with the help of the new solution, users will be able to search in the blockchain for published grants and related information.
Representatives of the NRC said that the application was created as part of the Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP) and posted on the protocol of the decentralized IPFS network (InterPlanetary File System).
IP-based web applications cannot be subjected to third-party intervention and will remain available even in the distant future. However, the availability of the original server does not matter.
“It’s too early to say, but NRC’s experiments with the blockchain should show the potential of this technology and how it can be used for government programs,” representatives of the Canadian government said.
