I need to automatically send funds from my hotwallet to users on my website at various times when they do something on the site.
Later I will also need to be able to see total balance for an address receive data about address totals and funds etc. (for this I have ABR block explorer and API setup to read the blockchain for addresses)
I know there are all the commands that can be executed from the terminal or CMD when running bitcoind, but how to trigger these from my website? Do I need to write a webAPI to handle such requests direct against the network? or is it more common to make a call to run these commands via scripts direct against the bitcoind?
Any help appreciated
