I am working in an artistic/visualization project that analyses Bitcoin transactions. I have a
Bitcore instance with insight API and from a Python script I query through the REST API so the queries are returned in json format. For the project I use a macbook pro and with its internal ssd drive I get around 70 queries per second, using an external NTFS (fuse drivers) driver I get as little as 5 per second.
I would like to know if there is a faster way to query transactions by transaction's hash even if it is more complex to code.
What would be the fastest way to query for a certain txid to get its inputs?
