is where Peerbox was pulling info on latest block, to compare health of local blockchain with the network.
This feature (peerbox-info --health) was introduced to enable users to make sure they are running on the right chain.
With this API down, this feature will no longer function.
I will look for another public API and fix this in next Peerbox release.
If you know some API like that, please help.
you know what would be really really cool? To be able to get data needed for finding stakes!
I am porting kac-s findstake to findstakejs at the moment. With this everyone will be able to find out when a stake is likely to be minted somewhere in future just by entering their txid with their browser/firefoxOS/phonegap app. Github: https://github.com/jointhepartypooper/FindstakeJS/
What is needed to calc a hash is the following:
StakeModifier uint64 string
PrevTxOutValue int64 IsProtocolV03 bool StakeMinAge int64 TxTime int64
But if you could extend the tx api with fields
[quote=“Sentinelrv, post:2, topic:3265”]Why is it permanently down? JetJet manages this website right?
I thought he was running the NuExplorer as well. Maybe the Nu team knows what happened and if it’s temporary?[/quote]
JetJet let me know that the traffic to the site was very low versus the cost to keep it running. I hope he changes his mind and considers donations or advertising to get it back up and running.
But at least we have a solution for Peerbox now.
