Hello guys, I try to use blockexplorer.com to verify transaction in my app.

I was using testnet for the whole time. (since 2 months ago, for testing)

But suddenly my app cant verify transaction even if the btc was sent.

So I thought there is some problem with testnet. and then decided to change to main net.

but after the change, the same problem appear.

And today I learned that the problem was with blockexplorer.com

I change the verification handler for my app to blockchain.info, and it worked fine now.

=========================================================

pooya87 is correct. If you're serious about your project and you are going to receive a considerable amount of payments so downtimes are not an option, maybe going with a payment processor is a much better option. I believe you have decent knowledge when it comes to coding, so maybe running BTCPayServer is also something you might want to look at: https://github.com/btcpayserver/btcpayserver

=========================================================

So as per suggestion, Im studying btcpayserver now.
You guys may contribute your solutions too.
will keep updating.

You're simply loading the page and reading data from it? because If you're using their API, I suggest Blocktrail's one over any other service.

Im using api.

and also, if I check for a txhash manually in blockexplorer.com, its also not appear.

is blocktrail more faster? what about blockchain.info is it practical?

You should carefully check out the API call! The possibility of error function is likely to occur not much! Carefully check in detail, Wish you success!

I can check TXHashes manually in the mainnet just fine. As for blocktrail, I can't tell you much about the speed but I know they have better limits and It's always up and they accept requests unlike Blockchain.info where people have to wait for ages to get an API key.

I've faced a similar problem using Blockexplorer. I switched to Blocktrail recently. So far haven't faced any problems.

Hello guys, I try to use blockexplorer.com to verify transaction in my app.

you didn't say what your "app" is but let me just give you a warning that if it is some serious project accepting payments, or things like that then you are making a mistake by relying on a block explorer, specially if you do it with an unreliable one such as blockchain.info (as it is the one you switched to). depending on your project you may want to look into running your own node.

But most of the merchant use bitpay, coinpayments.net and other services. wont it be a problem for them too?

i honestly thought we can use any blockexplorer for payment verification.

well, im good with python. but still grasping the architecture of bitcoin.

I was reading about fullnode as suggested by pooya87.

the link you gave, will we be able to be a bitcoin merchant with it?

what is the cost running such? I seen a lot of bitcoin merchant charging more than 0.5% or 0.0002 btc per transaction.

That is quite high fees, maybe the cost of running own bitcoin server are high, no?

Quote
BTCPay allows merchants to run their node (or connect to someone else's node by using the hosts) and receive payments directly, P2P, with no fees, no intermediary, no censorship while providing better privacy over their customers financial and private data

no fees. If its true, then I might be able to create a bitcoin merchant with the smallest fees, but whats the catch?

To start with, BTCPayServer is written using C# but I don't think it would be a problem because you don't necessarily need programming knowledge to use it.

As for the costs, I couldn't tell you for sure but If you want to run a full node and connect it with your BTCPayServer, then you should see how much a full node would consume (blockchain size, bandwidth etc.) and buy hosting based on that. Or, you could simply deploy it to Azure using the button in the GitHub repository, Azure will give you 30 days trial with free credit, and monitor how much you're consuming and see.

Alternatively, you could use third-party hosting services but clearly, being your own payment processor and running everything yourself is much better, how profitable is it will depend on the amounts you're expecting to receive.

yup, spend whole night studying it and now its up and syncing.

need 2 days to sync.

Im using digitalocean server. It says the blockchain storage of 250gb can be reduce after syncing.

From what I read, it cost about $40 monthly.

if there is 1000 transaction per month,  $0.04 charged per transaction should be able to cover all cost.

provided that there are not other maintenance cost.

omg, thank you for your suggestion.

I have a success in setting up basic function like generating address.

Gona hack around to create instant forwarding address.

Need to create hot wallet and cold wallet instant separation by percentage.

I feel that I can squeeze the world in my hand right now  Grin Grin Grin

Thank you so much. Grin
