Since a while, I have been using the insight-api to view bitcoin transactions. However, recently I have found out that bech32 addresses are not supported.

Now I try to fix this issue and I am open for any suggestions.

It there some other suitable api that also supports bech32-addresses? Or, also appreciated, is there some workaround available for the insight-api

It looks like bitcore replaced the insight-api

  • Does this mean there is a new api for bitcoin? Isn't bitcore another crypto-currency? Jun 25, 2019 at 10:07
  • No, these are all just different implementations of the bitcoin core protocol. Just like how you can use Google Chrome or Firefox to access the web, you can use insight-api or bitcore to access bitcoin data. Jun 25, 2019 at 18:10
