The startup Shift is on its way to creating a new decentralized web with a dApp ecosystem serving as a backbone and delegated Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanism. An important step is going to be made on March 31: Shift will release its explorer. The explorer uses sockets so that messages are pushed to the client and the webpage in the browser doesn't need to be refreshed manually. Major problem prior to the release was to distinguish frontend and backend: it prevented the explorer from having the socket client at IPFS and a socket server at the explorer nodes.
Now, the frontend is split from the backend, the explorer is now running on Phantom - the storage layer of the Shift network where users can submit their files for long-term storage. Thus, the data is fetched from dedicated nodes. With this introduction, Shift Explorer is hosted on Shift IPFS cluster and can communicate with a global pool of decentralized nodes. Apart from ordinary users, website operators can serve their entire website from the Shift storage cluster. And the explorer will be the first example of an "in-real-time" dynamic and decentralized website.
