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.

  • There should be.

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


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


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. Nov 18 '18 at 2:50

Blockr.io now also supports Bitcoin TESTNET

Blockr.io Bitcoin TESTNET


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.


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 Oct 5 '17 at 19:29
  • Oh, it's actually bitcoin2x testnet, not bitcoin core testnet. That's very confusing actually. Please note it in the answer Oct 5 '17 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. Dec 20 '17 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.


Yes. Blockchain.info has its own testnet service, Check this link https://testnet.blockchain.info/


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.
