GetBlock is a new, free solution that provides node connection for major cryptocurrencies. It supports JSON- RPC, REST, Websockets, and others to facilitate synchronization with the applicable Blockchain. The GetBlock.io solution eliminates the need for developers to run a node themselves.
The company has targeted most players in the cryptocurrency industry (e.g. wallet providers, exchanges, explorers, etc.). Each node includes an open API available for connection. The API is free and provides a direct connection with the blockchain.
At launch, GetBlock.io offers nodes for Bitcoin, Ehtereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin SV, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum Classic, Particl, Lbry, DogeCoin, ZCoin, Verge, Groestlcoin, DigiByte, Dash, Reddcoin, Bitcoin Gold, Horizen, Decre, Zcash, Bytecoin, Loki Network, Rsk, and Obyte.
The goal is to free users up to focus on their projects and development and allow GetBlock.io to handle node connections. Users can connect one node, or merge several, in just a few clicks. To get started, fill out the form on the GetBlock.io website.
