Blockscan: The Search Engine for a Decentralized Web (Medium)

Medium: Blockscan: The Search Engine for a Decentralized Web. “Accessing decentralized, uncensorable websites has long been touted as one of the potential uses for Ethereum…. One challenge remains: users of such sites lack easy ways of discovery. Imagine looking up a topic on the Internet. You wouldn’t need to type an exact URL.
