GetBlock is a service that provides a fast and easy connection to a continuously growing list of over 30 cryptocurrencies’ nodes, including Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), among others. They support such tools like JSON-RPC, REST, and WebSockets, which facilitates direct synchronization with the blockchain.
There is no need to launch and support all the nodes anymore as the GetBlock service will get access to all the available currencies automatically. In order to get started with GetBlock, clients of the platform have to fill in the form on the website and get their personal API key.
About Band Protocol
Band Protocol is a cross-chain data oracle platform that aggregates and connects real-world data and APIs to smart contracts. Blockchains are great at immutable storage and deterministic, verifiable computations — however, they cannot securely access data available outside the blockchain networks. Band Protocol enables smart contract applications such as DeFi, prediction markets, and games to be built on-chain without relying on the single point of failure of a centralized oracle. Band Protocol is backed by a strong network of stakeholders including Sequoia Capital, one of the top venture capital firms in the world, and the leading cryptocurrency exchange, Binance.
