New Block

POST
/blockchain-events/{blockchain}/{network}/subscriptions/block-mined

Through this endpoint customers can create callback subscriptions for a specific event. In this case the event is when a new block is mined in the specific blockchain. By creating this subscription the user will be notified by Crypto APIs 2.0 when that event occurs. The information is returned per specified address.

A new block is mined when it is added to the chain once a consensus is reached by the majority of the miners, which is when the block gets validated and added to the blockchain.

To have an operational callback subscription, you need to first verify a domain for the Callback URL. Please see more information on Callbacks here.
Crypto APIs will notify the user only when the event occurs. There are cases when the specific event doesn't happen at all, or takes a long time to do so. A callback notification will not be sent if the event does not or cannot occur, or will take long time to occur.

Path Parameters

blockchain string Required

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

network string Required

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", "sepolia" are test networks.

Query Parameters

context string Optional

In batch situations the user can use the context to correlate responses with requests. This property is present regardless of whether the response was successful or returned as an error. context is specified by the user.
