Burstcoin online resources
In addition to the plethora of software located in the Burstcoin Software Library, the Burstcoin community hosts many services that are accessed exclusively online. No software installation is required. Informational websites, social media platforms are also list here.
There is also a collection of blockchain explorers and observers. These provide insight into various events happening in the blockchain, such as transactions, block forging, assets overview and others. Some have extensive charts to provide visual feedback, often putting events into historical context. Some provide specific insights, such as monitoring mining-related activity or alternate views on network consensus integrity etc. These are referred to as observers. The are several other categories as well.
A note about online Wallets
Every BRS – the Burst Reference Software – has a builtin web server (based on Jetty) to deliver it’s front end content to the user. This can happen locally (when you have a local wallet installed either via Qbundle or standalone) and of course this also allows the wallet to be accessible from anywhere in the internet – if you made the API accessible on a public IP.
As a user, you should always be aware of the security implications when using an online wallet. Essentially you may be giving away your password to this wallet, so either use only 100% trusted public wallets, or use just a subset of their functionality – such as address watch only (when you enter the BURST-xxx address instead of a password)
