While the latest investigations are still inconclusive as to exactly what happened, there's nothing mysterious about it. It's pretty certain that it resulted from natural forces. It's highly unlikely there was an explosion, but that the collapse would have ejected some material out, enough to form the rim due to a difference in pressure between the inside and outside air, pretty much what I thought. That it might have involved gas doesn't mean it exploded, but even the gas idea seem unlikely. It appears likely that it involved the permafrost, which can be pretty deep. The investigation team entered the crater, although only a slight way in. A lot of ice appears to be present.

The hole appears to be about 100 feet across in contrast to the earlier estimates of 200-300 feet across. Further, the hole is estimated to be around 100 feet deep.

The link below gives more info, more photos. and I think a different video. The video shows a part of the interior where water is pouring out into the hole due to the ice being thawed by the sun.

First pictures from inside the 'crater at the end of the world'

I bet there is a Predator hunter ship in orbit and there is a pyramid in the bottom of that hole. Those scientists are doomed.

They just found two more east of the first one.
I think it may be frozen methane like on the ocean floors that occasionally gets released to the surface. Either that or alien ships are harvesting earth strata for terraforming on Mars or the moon. Could be.....
