Blockchain explorer for Cryptonote currency

Postby DATAFLEX » Mon Mar 28, 2016 11:14 pm

Hello
I just start mining of a new cryptocurrency based on cryptonote technology that we called dinastycoin, that soon we will send for review to Cryptnote foundation..
Now the simplewallet and seed nodes are working regular without errors... we proceeding forward, first the gui wallet and second the block chain explorer.
While we see that exist a Gui wallet open source, we cannot see almost nothing about a BlockChain explorer, we would like to create such like Api service to can get access to the file data.
Exist something where we can start to do this? for example which is the format of the data file blocks.dat or where I can found information to can read it. It is custom binary format? there is some tools that allow to can access to it?

regards

To my knowledge, there is no open source blockchain explorer.
File format is a custom binary format. There is no point in reading it as it is constantly updating byt the daemon. in order to get access to the blockachain data you have to use daemon.
Right now there is JSON-RPC API, you could use that, it will help in getting blocks data. This API is the same as Bytecoin API, you could find more info there - https://wiki.bytecoin.org/wiki/Daemon_JSON_RPC_API
https://github.com/cryptonotefoundation ... Server.cpp
But this API is unable to get you transaction data. So you could expand it and add transactions requests.

You can also ask these guys to add your coin - http://chainradar.com/api. They support all CryptoNote coins, yours shouldn't be an exception.

There is an opensource block explorer (Forknote based), but unfortunately the difference between Cryptonote and Bytecoin is too big now to work out of the box. Here are the exact modifications we made in Forknote to get the needed RPC methods:
https://github.com/forknote/cryptonote- ... lorer.json

You can see what data you can get with it here:

We can also offer you a maintained solution, if you need one.
I hope this helps.
