🖥️ APIs

bloXroute supports receiving commands using the Gateway-API and the Cloud-API. This section details their necessary requirements, available commands, and features.

Gateway-API

The bloXroute Gateway supports receiving commands using the Gateway-API. The Gateway-API is based on RPC over HTTP or Websocket. The Gateway-API commands can be invoked directly from users application or via the bloXroute-cli utility.

Cloud-API

Users can access the BDN without a Gateway (and thus without running a node) with the Cloud-API. The Cloud-API allows users to send transactions and subscribe to Transaction Streaming. The Cloud-API is based on RPC over HTTP. The Cloud-API commands can be invoked directly from users application or via the bloXroute-cli utility.
