Need to create a bitcoin explorer using bitcoind. I am using bitcore and insight API for this purpose.

Currently running bitcoind in AWS Server with all port open. Need to connect this running bitcoind with bitcore and use insight-api and UI in different server.

This my bitcore-node.json file:

    var configuration = {
 datadir: '/home/.bitcoin',
 network: 'testnet',
 services: [
     name: 'bitcoind',
     module: Bitcoin,
     config: {
       spawn: {
         datadir: '/home/.bitcoin',
         exec: '/home/Downloads/bitcoin-0.16.1/bin/bitcoind'
       name: 'web',
       module: Web,
       config: {
           port: 4001

This is my bitcoin.conf


Need to Connect the Insight API to in the A server to Bitcoin in B server.

  • You don't need bitcoind and bitcore, bitcore is already a node. – JBaczuk Jul 18 '18 at 3:19
  • @JBaczuk : Referring the following link [Source] (bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/62929/…). How to proceed with the Connecting the Insight API with the Bitcoin Node. – lecocoo Jul 18 '18 at 5:35

Follow the instructions on this README. It should install bitcore (the bitcoin full node implementation by Bitpay), insight-api, and insight-ui. The instructions are:

npm install -g bitcore@latest
bitcore create mynode
cd mynode
bitcore install insight-api
bitcore install insight-ui
bitcore start

If that doesn't sync with the bitcoin network and start showing blocks, then please share some logs/errors and we can help you further.
