    Privacy-Preserving Bitcoin Light Client (by lightninglabs)

    I’m referring to this: https://github.com/lightninglabs/neutrino which is the reference neutrino implementation.

    The Parity Bitcoin client

    parity-bitcoin had shown little interest in using libbitcoin-consensus (which could be problematic when using it for mining/consensus) - https://github.com/paritytech/parity-bitcoin/issues/404 . SPV clients can avoid thinking about much of this. A Rust light-client might get some more uptake.

  • Scout APM

    Truly a developer’s best friend. Scout APM is great for developers who want to find and fix performance issues in their applications. With Scout, we'll take care of the bugs so you can focus on building great things 🚀.
