Was the cardano api explorer https://explorer.cardano.org/api/ discontinued?

Dear Cardano Community/Team

I have realised that the public (and free) api for cardano that was hosted at


stopped to work about a week ago. (502 Bad Gateway)

Was that project discontinued or is it only temporarily unavailable?

Best regards,

Is this a newer version:

Or is this link something else?

Thank you for that link, but that link is the website for the explorer, wich is still working as you suggested, but I am looking for the cardano API endpoints where I can programmaticaly query this public cardano explorer instead of using the website directly.

I’ve raised this internally. Thank you for your patience in the meantime :slight_smile:

The API was service was rewritten using the new Haskell codebase, and is hosted at the same URL. Here’s an example endpoint returning a result: https://explorer.cardano.org/api/blocks/pages

What endpoint were/are you trying? API Docs

Thank you for coming back to me so quickly with answers regarding this!

The same url gave me 502 errors for a couple of days but now it seems to be back and working.

Thank you very much for your help!

I get error 502 bad gateway on Cardano Explorer
And I cannot search any transactions.
Is the server a single point of failure?
