1  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / What`s the deal with the testnet? on: August 31, 2018, 10:40:45 AM
I have started testing stuff on the testnet for a week now and I have this question:

Wtf is bloating up the blocks? I see most blocks being full, up to 1mb, and bloated up by a chain of txs that are spent in the same block: as soon as one output is created it is spent in the next tx and so one in a long chain of txs. What is this?

Also what advice would you guys give to a newcomer when working with the testnet? (i have worked with ethereum extensively before and i know how btc works but i haven`t touched the tools much before; atm i am experimenting with bitcoind and bitcoinjs-lib)
2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / bitpay bitcore node & node libs on: August 14, 2018, 05:55:22 PM
Is the Bitpay bitcore node&libs still supported? They look pretty much dead on github although I could start and sync mainnet&testnet nodes. Does anyone know why did they abandon the project? (possibly by keeping following versions private)

Also does anyone know of a node implementation that has similar features to bitcore, i.e. I am most interested in being able to query it for all the transactions to or from an address.
