RadixScan is a web service that provides detailed and comprehensive information about the Radix network. The service offers an array of features that includes an archive node, partnerships, and data about the Radix network.
The RadixScan platform provides various services related to the Radix network. Some of the available tools on the platform include an Archive Node, Transaction Exporter, and Stake Exporter.
EmmogluStakery Archive Node
The RadixScan operates an archive node within the Radix mainnet. The archive node is used for running queries for RadixScan but is also open for use by others. However, it has not yet been switched to the gateway system, making it unsuitable for wallet use. The node provides users with detailed instructions on how to set up an alternative node in their wallets.
The RadixScan team has also developed a ‘Stake exporter’. This service provides a detailed analysis of a user's staking address for a small fee of 1 $XRD (Radix's native token). The results of the analysis are uploaded to IPFS and the link to the results is sent to the user in an encrypted message.
RadixScan has established partnerships with Clana, Radix Talk, Xidar, Radix List, RADIX.wiki, Radix Name Service, Hermes Protocol, and Z3US among others. They are also collaborating with RadixCharts to provide aggregated data for the Radix network. These collaborations aim to be the primary data source for all Radix users.
RadixScan was started by Michael, from Vorarlberg in Austria, who has been interested in crypto since 2015. He was fascinated by the possibilities of decentralization, democratization of finances, and particularly, the potential for anonymization. He started the project RadixScan because he believed in the potential of Radix to grow significantly. He also mentioned appreciating the Radix community for its humor and the helpful exchanges he's had with members2.
Leo, from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, joined the project after meeting Michael in the Radix community. He had been interested in the concept of decentralization since he was 17 and was drawn to crypto in 2017. When he encountered Radix in June 2019, he was immediately intrigued by the project's intellectual rigor and the technological advancements it presented compared to other Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLTs). He and Michael participated in Cassandra tests and decided to run the Emmoglu Stakery together after the Betanet phase2.
