Do I need to run bitcore-wallet-service locally?


(Stuart Radforth) #1

Firstly I want to say I think Bitcore is awesome and really impressed but I just want to know if I’m going about this the right way.

I.e. Am I making this more complicated than it needs to be?

Do I need to run bitcore-wallet-service on a separate local linux machine (I use windows to develop and host the frontend web site) or can it run on Windows or can I connect to a shared globally available bitcore-wallet-service somehow?

If so, how do I connect to this global one, is it simply using a server address instead of localhost?

There’s no “global” wallet service but you can use the one Bitpay runs. Be aware that it is not 100% reliable.
