Is there a link to the details of addrindexrs ?

Are there other indexing services that are actively maintained?

Other well known indexing services are what’s generally known as “block explorers”

Blockstream, abe, btc-rpc-explorer and so on.

Most of the well known explorers/indexers are hulking behemoths that are “all-encompassing” to provide an incredible featureset at expense of CPU power and Database size.

We just need something that spits the currently unspent txids, that’s exactly what addrindexrs does at a very low CPU and Database size budget.
