We have finally finished moving Search Bitcoin to our new VPS, and the website can now handle a larger volume of traffic.

We will be working on releasing our API to the public. In short, we want to allow open access to our data.

Here are links to the API documentation. It is in a rough state, but I will work on improving it. Basically, the API works through JSONP.


Let me know if you are particular features that you would like to see in the API. Also, if you plan on using the API please contact me, so that I know you are using it :-) I can provide example JavaScript files for accessing the API.

Transactions must be included in a block to be properly completed. When you send a transaction, it is broadcast to miners. Miners can then optionally include it in their next blocks. Miners will be more inclined to include your transaction if it has a transaction fee.

A request .. not for the API but for the site itself.  When I click on an item in the left pane (the "Live Feed"), what happens is the content in the right pane (the "Review Store") is updated with the item I clicked on.  However, that isn't intuitive and only realized that is what is happening after coming back to the site a few times.  Can there be some UX improvement on that?  If needed, maybe some animation or something to show how the click on the left results in a content update on the right?

Additionally, what would be a useful would be a "latest additions" view, so that I can see just what is new.

And lastly, ... a contact / feedback mechanism for requests like this perhaps?

Check out www.searchbitcoin.com/test and tell me if the changes are more intuitive.

I'll work on this. Thanks for the advice :-)

I made some more UI changes. Can I get your feedback? Do you understand how to leave a review for a bitcoin store?
