After that you need to create a web3 instance and set a provider.
// In case you are using Node.js
const Web3 = require('web3');
// Setting getblock node as HTTP provider
const provider = new Web3.providers.HttpProvider("https://eth.getblock.io/mainnet/?api_key=YOUR_API_KEY_HERE");
// or as WebSocket provider
const provider = new Web3.provider.WebSocketProvider("wss://eth.getblock.io/mainnet/?api_key=YOUR_API_KEY_HERE");
// Creating web3 instance with given provider
const web3 = new Web3(provider);
// Initializing web3.eth method
var block = web3.eth.getBlockNumber().then(console.log);
