Upon inspecting “https://explorer.cardano.org”, there appears to be a public REST API exposed at “https://explorer.cardano.org/graphql” for querying the blockchain.
I want to make a server application that will continually query this API roughly every 10 seconds or so. Is this acceptable use for this API, is there a likelihood for rate limiting, and is this API likely to remain available for the foreseeable future?
I think better to have your own server which can provide same functionalities:
Hello @cinolt, welcome to the community forum
I don’t know about explorer.cardano.org, but I would work with projects like Blockfrost (their free version supports 50K requests in a day) or Gimbalabs’ Dandelion APIs.
Hope this helps
