I am searching for a solution to monitor all bitcoin transactions (or for first ties at least for addresses inside my bitcoin client).

I found http://blockchain.info/api_websocket is this really reliable? What happens if my client is offline?

Is perhaps the better way to run a bc-client an use a poll - every second?

This can be done with some degree of effort using the Bitcoin API.

v0.7 even has support for this for addresses that are not in your own wallet:

There are other tools that you can use to build this capability as well.

  • libBitcoin
  • Armory (see Extras)
  • Bitcoin ABE
