Examples

Initialization

using ARKEcosystem.Client;
using ARKEcosystem.Client.API;
static void Main(string[] args)
{
ConnectionManager.Connect(new Connection("http://my.node.ip:port/api/", "main"))
}

Blocks

This service API grants access to the blocks resource. A block is a signed set of transactions created by a delegate and permanently committed to the ARK blockchain.

It is not possible to POST a block through the public API. Relay Nodes accept only blocks posted by a delegate at the correct time through the internal API.

List All Blocks

var blocks = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Blocks.All();
>>> {'meta': {'count': 10, ... }}

Retrieve a Block

var block = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Blocks.Show("validBlockId");
>>> {'data': {'id': 'validBlockId' ... }}

List All Transactions of a Block

var blockTransactions = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Blocks.Transactions("validBlockId");
>>> {'meta': {'count': 10, ... }}

Search All Blocks

var parameters = new Dictionary<string, string> {
{"id": "validBlockId"}
}
var searchedBlocks = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Blocks.Search(parameters);
>>> {'meta': {'count': 100, ... }}

Delegates

The client SDK can be used to query the delegate resource.

A delegate is a regular wallet that has broadcasted a registration transaction, acquired a sufficient number of votes, and has a Relay Node configured to forge new blocks through a forger module. At any time only 51 delegates are active. They are cost-efficient miners running the ARK network.

Voters are wallets which have broadcasted a vote transaction on a delegate. A vote remains active until an un-vote transaction is sent (it does not have to be recast unless a wallet wishes to change from delegate). Voting for a delegate does not give the delegate access to the wallet nor does it lock the coins in it.

List All Delegates

var delegates = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Delegates.All();
>>> {'meta': {'count': 20, ... }}

Retrieve a Delegate

var delegate = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Delegates.Show("validId");
>>> {'data': {'username': 'delegateName', ... }}

List All Blocks of a Delegate

var delegateBlocks = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Delegates.Blocks("validId");
>>> {'meta': {'count': 100, ... }}

List All Voters of a Delegate

var delegateVoters = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Delegates.voters("validId");
>>> {'meta': {'count': 10, ... }}

Node

The ARK network consists of different anonymous nodes (servers), maintaining the public ledger, validating transactions and blocks and providing APIs. The node resource allows for querying the health and configurations of the node used by the instantiated client.

Retrieve the Configuration

var nodeConfiguration = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Node.Configuration();
>>> {'data': {'nethash': '6e84d08bd299ed97c212c886c98a57e36545c8f5d645ca7eeae63a8bd62d8988', ... }}

Retrieve the Status

var nodeStatus = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Node.Status();
>>> {'data': {'synced': True, 'now': 6897158, 'blocksCount': -1}}

Retrieve the Syncing Status

var nodeSyncingStatus = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Node.Syncing();
>>> {'data': {'syncing': False, 'blocks': -1, 'height': 6897160, 'id': '12905037940821862953'}}

Peers

Each node is connected to a set of peers, which are Relay or Delegate Nodes as well. The peers resource provides access to all peers connected to our node.

Peers have made their Public API available for use; however for mission-critical queries and transaction posting you should use a node which is under your control. We provide a guide to setting up a Relay Node here.

List All Peers

var peers = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Peers.All();
>>> {'meta': {'count': 100, ... }}

Retrieve a Peer

var peer = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Peers.Show("validIpAddress");
>>> {'data': {'count': 20, ... }} # Need to changes

Transactions

The heart of any blockchain is formed by its transactions; state-altering payloads signed by a wallet. Most likely you will be querying for transactions most often, using the transaction resource.

A transaction is the only object which may be posted by a non-delegate. It requires a signature from a wallet containing a sufficient amount of ARK.

Create a Transaction

var parameters = new Dictionary<string, dynamic>
{
{
"amount: 1,
...
}
};
var transaction = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Transactions.Create(parameters);
>>> ...

Retrieve a Transaction

var transaction = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Transactions.Show("validId");
>>> ...

List All Transactions

var transactions = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Transactions.All();
>>> {'meta': {'count': 10, ... }}

List All Unconfirmed Transactions

var unconfirmedTransactions = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Transactions.AllUnconfirmed();
>>> {'meta': {'count': 10, ... }}

Get Unconfirmed Transaction

var unconfirmedTransaction = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Transactions.ShowUnconfirmed("validId");
>>> ...

Search Transactions

var parameters = new Dictionary<string, string>
{
{
"amount", 1
}
};
var searchedTransactions = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Transactions.Search(parameters);
>>> {'meta': {'count': 10, ... }}

List Transaction Types

var transactionTypes = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Transactions.Types();
>>> {"data":{...}}

Votes

A vote is a transaction sub-type, where the asset field contains a votes object and the transaction.type is 3.

List All Votes

var votes = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Votes.All();
>>> {'meta': {'count': 10, ... }}

Retrieve a Vote

var vote = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Votes.Show("validId");
>>> {'data': {...}}

Wallets

The wallet resource provides access to:

  • Wallets.

  • Incoming and outgoing transactions per wallet.

  • Each wallet's votes.

Retrieve All Wallets

var wallets = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Wallets.All();
>>> {'meta': {'count': 10, ... }}

Retrieve a Wallet

var wallet = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Wallets.Show("validId");
>>> {'data': {'address': 'validWalletAddress' ... }}

List All Transactions of a Wallet

var walletTransactions = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Wallets.Transactions("validId");
>>> {'meta': {'count': 10, ... }}

List All Received Transactions of a Wallet

var receivedTransactions = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Wallets.ReceivedTransactions();
>>> {'meta': {'count': 10, ... }}

List All Sent Transactions of a Wallet

var sentTransactions = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Wallets.SentTransactions();
>>> {'meta': {'count': 10, ... }}

List All Votes of a Wallet

var walletVotes = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Wallets.Votes();
>>> {'meta': {'count': 10, ... }}

List All Top Wallets

var topWallets = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Wallets.Top();
>>> {'meta': {'count': 10, ... }}

Search All Wallets

var parameters = new Dictionary<string, string>
{
{
"username", "dummy"
}
};
var searchedWallets = ConnectionManager.Connection("main").Api.Wallets.Search(parameters);
>>> {'meta': {'count': 10, ... }}
