"unable to retrieve transactions" from Ripple Data API v2 if descending


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to retrieve transactions for addresses in descending (latest comes first in response array) but having issue with querying address that has ONLY 29 transactions.

Here is an example of address with only 3 transactions, it work fine in both directions. I could probably query with limit 1000 until i find the end, but don't really want do it.

ripple api is buggy, you can create an issue on githib for that. 

They often miss some ledgers, sometimes data available not in full, therefore api isn't very reliable. 

You can get transactions in descending order on Bithomp though.
