    What is the difference between insight.dash.org and explorer.dash.org?

    Which API should I use for my web app?

    Why is neither listed here: https://www.dash.org/network/ ?

    They have different backends - one is insight (nodejs), the other one is abe (python).
    Whichever provides you the API you want, there i no requirements to use some specific one. Or you can even setup your own one if you want to make sure it's up 24/7, the code is on github.
    Hmmm, good question. @tungfa ? :rolleyes:
