When I try to connect testnet websocket provided by blockchain.info api. Connection doesn't establish, when i looked into the code. It says for testnet it uses "wss://ws.testnet.blockchain.info/inv" url. I guess that blockchain.info stops the service for testnet. Is there any other websocket api provider for bitcoin testnet?


~> curl --head https://testnet.blockchain.info HTTP/1.1 503 Service Unavailable

It's likely the service just isn't something that exists.

  • I found out another way to do this. smartbit.com.au provide api for both testnet and mainnet for bitcoin with some awesome api playground. I built my app over this website. But thanks for your comment though. :) – Jon Hebrews Nov 27 '17 at 14:07
