Thank you @lidel and @olizilla.
Looks like the DAG link is working, though it is very very slow than the IPLD explorer.
One point worth considering in this scenario is:
- knowing the source peerID (from which the block was resolved)
Currently the IPFS gateway or IPLD explorer does not indicated from which peer the block is resolved. For beginners, this kind of information is invaluable in understanding the behavior of these discrete systems.
- it is unclear if both IPFS gateway and IPLD explorer resolved the block from the same peer, and if so why IPFS gateway is so slow, while IPLD explorer is almost instant
