I'm trying to test to see if transactions went through or not and blockchain.info is super helpful for this on the real network.

Yes, blockchain.info has its own testnet service: https://testnet.blockchain.info/

  • Awesome. That works really well! Commented Jun 7, 2019 at 14:12
  • but testnet.blockchain.info/pushtx seems to just redirect to blockchain.com/btc/pushtx -- which doesn't look like testnet to me

    2022 update - testnet.blockchain.info does not seem to be working - does anyone have an updated url for this service from blockchain.info or do I have to find another provider?

www.blocktrail.com/tBTC now supports testnet too and has an API for it too (including wallet API)

    It doesn't work anymore at least as of August 2023. Commented Aug 7, 2023 at 13:38

Blockcypher supports testnet3 and has their own testnet.


TestNet Bitcoin Block Explorer appears to be not working too well at the moment. However, BTCLook does appear to be supporting TestNet and looks like a good alternative.


Your could also use Biteasy.com Testnet Block Explorer which is pretty fast and also includes a REST API.

    Apparently it's no longer up. Commented Nov 18, 2018 at 2:50

Blockr.io now also supports Bitcoin TESTNET

Blockr.io Bitcoin TESTNET


You can use mine, for now it's on a best effort basis

  host: 'rcorbish.ydns.eu',
  port: 18332,
  user: 'bitcoinrpc',
  pass: 'password'
  • A bitcoin daemon isn't exactly a replacement for blockchain.info. For one, it doesn't have a user interface that a non-technical person can easily use.

    No, was trying to help. If this helps: tbtc.blockr.io

I might be a little late to the game here, but blockchain.info do offer testnet resources for SegWit2x. Go to https://testnet5.blockchain.info and you'll see an identical site to the original, but with testnet coins.

  • This is actually very helpful to me! Thanks, I didn't know that Commented Oct 5, 2017 at 19:29
  • Oh, it's actually bitcoin2x testnet, not bitcoin core testnet. That's very confusing actually. Please note it in the answer Commented Oct 5, 2017 at 19:50
  • Oh sorry, I didn't notice that! I haven't got around using it yet so I didn't know.

  • This not working now. Commented Dec 20, 2017 at 18:53
  • the hostname does not resolve. I tried also just 'testnet' but it just redirects to the mainnet page :(

Coinprism.info has a testnet blockchain explorer. It does colored coins as well.

Note that the SSL certificate is self signed.


Bitpay's insight project supports and has a live version of the testnet.


The testnet block explorer and API for blockchain.info doesn't appear to be working at the time of writing (July 2021). It may get fixed but in the meantime or perhaps regardless blockstream.info can be used instead.

  • still works as of this writing. thanks.
