We are pleased to announce the launch of more new endpoints for interacting with blockchain protocols and getting notified for anything that happens on-chain.
Here is what’s new:
Wallet as a Service: Create New Master Wallet
Through this endpoint customers can easily create a new Master Wallet through the API. The user provides the desired Wallet name and in return the response includes the walletId.
When creating a wallet, the customer can select whether to create a Testnet or Mainnet wallet. That new Wallet can be additionally also backed up through the Crypto APIs Dashboard.
Improvement: XRP has been as a possible value to endpoint "Create Coins Transaction From Address for Whole Amount"
Blockchain Webhooks: New Reverted Block
The Ethereum mainnet transition to Proof-of-Stake has been successfully completed. The migration happened today, September 15, 2022, after the blockchain reached a terminal total difficulty of 58,750,000,000T at 06:43 UTC.
All of Crypto APIs products and services are operating flawlessly and we are not experiencing any issues or downtime.
Our team has validated the seamless synchronization of data for all of our API endpoints and the Merge is not expected to impact your daily operations.
We continue monitoring the network performance and we will update you if necessary.

The Ethereum Merge to proof-of-stake ("PoS") is just around the corner.
We have upgraded our Ethereum nodes to the latest Bellatrix upgrade in advance to ensure the smooth operations of our customers. You don’t need to do anything on your end and no issues or downtime are expected.
Bellatrix is a consensus layer upgrade that is set to occur when the Beacon Chain reaches an epoch height of 144,896, around 11:34:47am on September 6, 2022 (UTC).
Another upgrade on the execution layer, Paris, will be triggered by a specific Total Difficulty threshold called the Terminal Total Difficulty (TTD) with a value of 58750000000000000000000, expected around September 15, 2022 (UTC).
This will mark the official Merge and Ethereum’s transition from proof-of-work to proof-of-stake.
Stay tuned for more updates on the Merge and our product suite.
We are happy to announce that Bitcoin Taproot addresses are now supported in our blockchain infrastructure suite.
Customers can now get details on blockchain data, including addresses and transaction details for Bech32m addresses.
Taproot addresses were introduced at the end of 2021 with the Taproot upgrade that aimed to improve privacy and efficiency of the blockchain network. Its impact is expected to become more significant over the years.
We have released a new and improved version of our Open-source Key Management System (KMS).
You can check it on our GitHub page.
We are doing performance improvements to our Dashcoin Mainnet node. You may experience some delays in callbacks, webhooks and automations.
The maintenance is expected to take 1 hour.
We appreciate your patience and understanding.
