First, the blockchain crawler engine of the chain picks up a portion of the seed URL, which is usually a collection of alex's top-ranked url and the url chosen by the chain itself. Put these URLs into the pending URL queue, spider takes out the pending URL, resolves the DNS to get the host's IP, downloads the page corresponding to the URL, stores them in the downloaded web library, and puts the URLs into the crawled URL queue. Analyze the URLs in the crawled URL queue, analyze the other URLs in them, evaluate the url's new relationship to the blockchain app service based on the context map, and then decide whether to put the URL in the pending URL queue to move on to the next loop.... If tor routing is required at this time, the crawler turns on tor to complete the follow-up.
