Project Updates OmniExplorer

The first phase of the redesigned Omni Explorer is now complete and in final review/testing. We anticipate it should be ready for release tomorrow. Built on react boilerplate this is a ground up rebuild. Designed to have a minimal initial load, data is loaded from our api server as needed. The next phase will finish the majority of the ‘coming soon’ placeholders. But for now the core dataset (address balances, history, transaction details, and property information) is available. Here is a little sneak peak of what to expect with the release:


Now operational, our hosted api service is feeding data to the newly redesigned OmniExplorer. Over the next several days we will be updating and documenting available routes, endpoints and example calls to provide integrators with initial access to protocol data.


In preparation for the new explorer, our backend parser (omniEngine) has been updated and now supports unconfirmed/pending network transactions. This data is accessible and usable by both the new api server as well as Omniwallet. Users should notice pending transaction data a little more quickly now within wallets when receiving transactions from outside services.


As previously stated we are currently looking for additional c++ developers familiar with bitcoin technology who would like to participate in and contribute to the project.  Any interested applicants can contact [email protected]
