The built-in BTC RPC Explorer has been adapted to support pruned and txindex-less nodes.

Pruning naturally limits some functionality, as described at ezno.de/packages#pruning-suppo.

See github.com/janoside/btc-rpc-ex for more details.

Secure remote connections are enabled through:

🔸Tor Onion services (with support for the non-anonymous mode)

🔸SSH tunnels (with automatic key generation and a built-in Dropbear SSH server)

🔸SSL (self-signed or via LetsEncrypt)

See ezno.de/accessing#connecting-r for details.

An optional ⚠trusted fast-sync mode is available that downloads a datadir snapshot from @SpecterWallet's prunednode.today.

This can get you synced up in 5-60 minutes, but means that you could be fooled into ACCEPTING FAKE COINS.

See: ezno.de/packages#fast-sync

The HTTP API has a new `GET /banner.pdf` endpoint to retrieve the Bitcoin whitepaper from the block chain.

Updated to support pruned nodes thanks to @belcher's suggestion.

The Electrum plugin has instructions and a utility script for use with the Electrum AppImage.

I previously thought that installing external plugins with the AppImage was impossible, but found a workaround thanks to @tiero's nudge!

See github.com/bwt-dev/bwt-electru for details.

Show thread

The Electrum server now supports authentication, by (ab)using the SOCKS5 support that's built into Electrum and other Electrum-backed wallets.

Because SOCKS5 authentication is unencrypted, this is primarily intended for protecting NAT or local servers.
