Mostly cloudy 14°C — Gerakas, Greece — #turtlecoin #crypto #projects #en

weekend project:

I spent the weekend on a new pet-project:, a service that lists know public TurtleCoin nodes. will periodically poll these nodes and keep track of their status, the block height they are at, the fees they are charging, etc.

I expect this to be a useful resource for "light" wallet (for example, TurtleCoin Nest) users but also for anyone who wants to run a public node for fun and profit and would like to know what the landscape looks like.


The service also exposes an API, that could be useful to light wallet devs: they could call the API to get a list of nodes that seem to be reliable and don't have the higher fees, making it easier for their users to pick one.

I should do more of these weekend side-projects, it feels so good to create something and learn new things in the process and then sharing it with the world :-)
