New Blockstream Bitcoin Block Explorer Announces The Release Of Its Open Source Code Esplora

Blockstream Announces The Release Of Its Open Source Code Esplora

Blockstream has just announced a release of Esplora, its open source software. This is the software that keeps the website and network running. This new release follows on the heels of its block explorer that was released in November to the public.

The company released the block explorer, and after making sure it was successful, released the code behind that block explorer. This way, developers can easily create their block explorers, build add-ons and extensions as well as contribute to Blockstream.info.

Blockstream’s block explorer is incredibly effective at monitoring real time data for the Liquid Network and Bitcoin blockchain. So, with this tool, any developer can increasingly monitor traffic, transaction volume, hash power and so much more.

The company announced the release of Esplora on their twitter handle on the 6th of December:

“We're excited to announce Esplora, the source code behind http://Blockstream.info ! Developers can now contribute to the project, build their own extensions, or even create their own independent #Bitcoin & #LiquidNetwork #blockchain explorers. https://blockstream.com/2018/12/06/esplora-source-announcement/ … pic.twitter.com/k37B1gRCtS”

Blockstream’s Esplora currently supports the following:

  • Bitcoin Mainnet, Testnet, and Liquid
  • Bech32 addresses
  • Confidential addresses (Liquid)
  • Links peg-in and peg-outs between Bitcoin and Liquid
  • Light-Mode for reduced resource usage/personal use

As long as developers are familiar with those, they can easily develop their extensions, create their own unique block explorer and become contributors to the Blockstream.info site, and other associated public networks.

Blockstream is a California based startup that has been consistently creating blockchain related products for public use. Esplora is only the latest of its newest additions to its portfolio of products.

The company is also behind the creation and release of the cold storage device called Metal. This is a very solid hardware device used for the storage of crypto wallets seed phrases and private keys.
