Dash Decides to Update Dash Explorer to Improved Insight API
Michael Seitz, marketing manager at decentralized payment solution Dash, announced that the Dash Explorer will be updated to Insight on January 7th, 2020.
In a Dec. 4 blog post, Seitz explained that Dash has made the internal decision to update the current explorer.dash.org, which is based on the Abe application programming interface (API). the old API is reportedly “outdated and has limited functionality in comparison to the new and improved API, Insight.”
Insight is an open-source Dash blockchain explorer that will be used for writing web wallets and other apps that need more advanced blockchain queries. It provides users with a convenient way to read data from the Dash network so they can build their own services with it.
Seitz further explained that this planned update will affect all users, as the API change from Abe to Insight will create differences in the underlying software. Consequently, Dash recommends users upgrade their application to Insight API to ensure future compatibility.
