As some know, I’m working on building out our new explorer that supports the new Stacks token, and the related info around accounts and name operations that are associated with the token.
I already have pretty much all I need from existing APIs that work with our current network and explorer. But, I’m having trouble finding all the info I need for the new features.
Lots of explorer-related info can be surfaced from an Insight API provided by a Bitcore node. However, from what I’ve seen, we don’t have a Bitcore node spun up for the testnet. If we should set that up, I can try and take that on, but it won’t support many of the Stacks-related information.
Here is a sample of things I’m having trouble finding:
- Stacks operations associated with a transaction. Things like the number of Stacks sent, and the sender and receiver. From what I see, we use our Bitcoind node for getting things like the Block height, but again no Stacks info.
- Somehow aggregating the total number of Stacks held by all accounts. We have a genesis block that I could aggregate, but I’d need a live version.
