How to Use Bitcoin API to Get BTC Pending Transactions -Tokenview

What is a pending transaction? The pending transaction means that the transaction has been broadcast to the network, waiting to be packaged, and has not yet entered the blockchain.

After we transfer coin on the Bitcoin blockchain, we want to check whether the transaction is packaged or is still in the list of pending transactions. We can use the Bitcoin block explorer to search this transaction. Tokenview Bitcoin Block Explorer is a blockchain explorer that queries transactions on the chain, providing users with powerful and complete data support.
