Beyond ElectrumX

Introduction

The ElectrumX indexer

Wallet restoration

Why transaction history?

Affected users

Replacement approaches

  • It is not intended that this restoration index be a complete pushdata index. It would instead only index receipt and spending of standard type scripts. P2PK, P2PKH, P2MS and P2SH pre-Genesis. Unlike tip scanning which is mentioned later, this would also handle the 65 byte pushdata used for uncompressed public keys.

Transaction state

Replacement approaches

  • The user provides parameters with their filter, which might alter the default types of pushdata that their filter is checked against. Filters by default might only process 20 bytes (public key hash), 33 bytes (compressed public key with uncompressed being excluded intentionally) and 32 byte pushdata (SHA 256 hash) but a user could opt to pay more and process other sizes. They might just process 32 byte pushdata by default, and none of the other sizes.
