Get Last Mined Block

GET
/blockchain-data/{blockchain}/{network}/blocks/last

Through this endpoint customers can fetch the last mined block in a specific blockchain network, along with its details. These could include the hash of the specific, the previous and the next block, its transactions count, its height, etc.

Blockchain specific data is information such as version, nonce, size, bits, merkleroot, etc.

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.

Response Schema

apiVersion string Required

Specifies the version of the API that incorporates this endpoint.

2021-03-20
requestId string Required

Defines the ID of the request. The requestId is generated by Crypto APIs and it's unique for every request.

601c1710034ed6d407996b30
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.

yourExampleString
data object Required
item object Required
hash string Required

Represents the hash of the block, which is its unique identifier. It represents a cryptographic digital fingerprint made by hashing the block header twice through the SHA256 algorithm.

00000000000000000002ad6f9c74faf503bb055c54e0d0746ef34f888f95890f
height integer Required

Represents the number of blocks in the blockchain preceding this specific block. Block numbers have no gaps. A blockchain usually starts with block 0 called the "Genesis block".

673852
previousBlockHash string Required

Represents the hash of the previous block, also known as the parent block.

00000000000000000008953625613e60b56194ea31f07aad43c7505fbddce77f
timestamp integer Required

Defines the exact date/time when this block was mined in Unix Timestamp.

1681893875
transactionsCount integer Required

Represents the total number of all transactions as part of this block.

2755
blockchainSpecific object Required
bits string Required

A sub-unit of BTC equal to 0.000001 BTC, or 100 Satoshi, and is the same as microbitcoin (μBTC). Bits have two-decimal precision.

170d21b9
chainwork string Required

Represents a hexadecimal number of all the hashes necessary to produce the current chain. E.g., when converting 0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000086859f7a841475b236fd to a decimal you get 635262017308958427068157 hashes, or 635262 exahashes.

00000000000000000000000000000000000000001932c1bc515b0c0e0dee2040
difficulty string Optional

Represents a mathematical value of how hard it is to find a valid hash for this block.

21448277761059.71
merkleRoot string Required

Defines the single and final (root) node of a Merkle tree. It is the combined hash of all transactions' hashes that are part of a blockchain block.

02754414626473fa39a0cfbf8d1960fc17ba932ab586340f61f039114053e851
nonce string Required

Represents a random value that can be adjusted to satisfy the proof of work

size integer Required

Represents the total size of the block in Bytes.

1408113
strippedSize integer Required

Defines the numeric representation of the block size excluding the witness data.

925958
version integer Required

Represents the version of the specific block on the blockchain.

536928256
versionHex string Required

Is the hexadecimal string representation of the block's version.

2000000
weight integer Required

Represents a measurement to compare the size of different transactions to each other in proportion to the block size limit.
