Blockstream launched block browser for Bitcoin and sidechain network Liquid



The developer of bitcoin and blockchain solutions, the Blockstream company, has launched a public launch of the block browser for the Bitcoin and sidechain network Liquid.

At the same time, the tool is compatible with the Confidential Transactions in Liquid, and also allows you to track the Bitcoin addresses to which transactions in sidechain are tied.

Add that to enhance the privacy of users, developers have added support for Tor.

In addition, Blockstream introduced a client to run a full node on the Liquid network. Holders of such nodes will be able to issue their own assets [ Issued Assets ], send / receive them and exchange Liquid BTC (L-TBC).

Recall, Blockstream announced the launch of the browser block in early August, and the release of the sidechain Liquid took place on 10 October.
