Bitcore is a full bitcoin node — your apps run directly on the peer-to-peer network. By binding directly into bitcoind's source code, Bitcore's API is 20x faster than connecting to a separate bitcoin node, and orders of magnitude faster than a centralized API.
Bitcore is 100% open source, powered by the time-tested and battle-hardened Bitcore Library.
Apps built on Bitcore benefit from the extensive testing and review of dozens of bitcoin companies and community contributors.
Bitcore provides a powerful blockchain API and the Insight blockchain explorer, right out of the box.
A modular, service-based architecture makes Bitcore a perfect platform for enterprise applications.
To build reliable bitcoin and blockchain-based applications, compatibility with Bitcoind is essential.
Bitcore uses the source code of Bitcoind directly, so accidental chain forks are a thing of the past.
