blockexplorer.com API - Get Transaction Data

This section describes how to get transaction data with blockexplorer.com API.

Bitcoin blockexplorer.com API offers two primary services to get Bitcoin transaction data:

Both services requires you to provide the transaction ID to identify the transaction. Transaction IDs are provided as properties of blocks, and associated with wallet addresses.

You can try Bitcoin blockexplorer.com API to get Bitcoin transaction data with any Web browser. Here is what I did to get information of the transaction that provided by some Bitcoin fund on the Bitcoin test network:
