I finally found time to build a full
bitcoind node and run
electrs (not Electrum Personal Server).
What things can I do now? I know about only these:
- Point my Electrum wallet client to my
electrs, even over Tor (main-use case).
- Searching here, some people write scripts or custom apps to talk to their Electrum Server (ElectrumX, electrs). I assume for block explorer type queries.
- My own
BTC RPC Block Explorerwould query my Electrum Server (and bitcoind?)
Can non-Electrum wallets talk to Electrum Server? Is there an easy way to find which ones?
I'd like to make my own mempool observer app. Maybe I would query Electrum Server, or is bitcoind better?
In what situations would I call Electrum Server's api vs. calling bitcoind? Said another way: What API data does bitcoind provide vs. Electrum Server, and is there any overlap in info they both provide?
