Bitcoin is moving very quickly at the moment. I’m in the middle of doing research for a new and large project and looking and various options for a web service that is required to work with bitcoin with a nodejs backend (an enterprise service).
We implemented some prototypes using earlier Bitcore versions running a full node and it all seemed simple enough - but with v5 coming up we noticed the backend is now using Bcoin
We are also very interested in the Bcoin project - if we’re doing nothing more than accepting payments, signing and sending transactions and running a few wallets what would the benefits of Bitcore on Bcoin be?
As far as I understand so far - in our situation we might not require the entire Bitcore layer, as we aren’t really interested in running a user-facing API or wallet service. Would this be right? Is there anything else we’re missing in terms of what Bitcore is adding to Bcoin?
