Block Height Reached

Through this endpoint customers can create callback subscriptions for a specific block height that hasn't been reached yet. In this case the event is when the specified block height in the request body is reached in a said blockchain. By creating this subscription the user will be notified by Crypto APIs 2.0 when that event occurs.

Supports Callback Functionality Single Result - This endpoint returns only one single result. POST /blockchain-events/{blockchain}/{network}/subscriptions/block-height-reached

Path Parameters

  • Required
    blockchain string

    Represents the specific blockchain protocol name, e.g. Ethereum, Bitcoin, etc.

  • Required
    network string

    Represents the name of the blockchain network used; blockchain networks are usually identical as technology and software, but they differ in data, e.g. - "mainnet" is the live network with actual data while networks like "testnet", "ropsten" are test networks.
