GetBlock is a multinational team operating from Europe, united by the idea of developing a complete solution for providing access to blockchain nodes of various cryptocurrencies.
What is the GetBlock project about?
GetBlock is a Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS) platform that provides a fast and easy API connection to full nodes from many leading blockchain platforms. It allows you to request on-chain information from a node without the need to set up one manually with JSON-RPC, REST, and WebSockets.
How to get started with GetBlock?
Here’s an example of how to make
a JSON-RPC request over CURL
What are the advantages of using GetBlock over running the nodes yourself?
Running and maintaining your own nodes is quite expensive as you have to invest in hardware, electricity and bandwidth, requires extra disc space due to synchronization of the blockchain, and is extremely time-consuming. We can see that when it comes to business and nodes, DIY is not worth the trouble.
GetBlock gives you access to full nodes, requires minutes for integration, and provides reliability. There is no need to waste your time on day-to-day updates, fixing bugs, constant syncing, equipment failures, multiple nodes issues, etc. Leave this headache to the experts, as we are used to it.
How is GetBlock different from other node service providers?
Our pricing system is structured in a way that the purchased requests do not have an expiration date; it means that the unused requests from any package that you bought are automatically transferred to the next month. Also, if you represent an enterprise and prefer to pay for all requests spent rather than be charged for each package individually, you can pay by invoice on any day of the month, whenever it suits you.
If your application needs support for other blockchains or services, just let us know, and we can negotiate and run custom infrastructure for you.
