Blockchain API library (C#, v1)
An official .NET (C#) library for interacting with the Blockchain.info API.
The library requires at least .NET 4.0.
The recommended way to install and use the library is via NuGet:
PM> Install-Package BlockchainAPI
The library consists of the following namespaces:
In order to use Wallet and CreateWallet functionality, you must provide an URL to an instance of service-my-wallet-v3 as first parameter to BlockchainApiHelper. If you don't intend to use these functionalities, this parameter can be null.
All methods may throw exceptions caused by incorrectly passed parameters or other problems. If a call is rejected server-side, the
APIException exception will be thrown. Other exceptions may also be thrown by the environment (e.g. no internet connection etc).
It is possible to set arbitrary connection timeouts.
Info.Blockchain.API.HttpClient.TimeoutMs = 5000; // time out after 5 seconds
Request limits and API keys
In order to prevent abuse some API methods require an API key approved with some basic contact information and a description of its intended use. Please request an API key here.
The same API key can be used to bypass the request limiter.
