What is adeptio public API?

First of all, we need to answer the question what is API overall? An Example of an API:

When you use an application on your mobile phone, the application connects to the Internet and sends data to a server. The server then retrieves that data, interprets it, performs the necessary actions and sends it back to your phone. The application then interprets that data and presents you with the information you wanted in a readable way. This is what an API is – all of this happens via API.

To explain this better, let us take a familiar example.

Imagine you’re sitting at a table in a restaurant with a menu of choices to order from. The kitchen is the part of the “system” that will prepare your order. What is missing is the critical link to communicate your order to the kitchen and deliver your food back to your table. That’s where the waiter or API comes in. The waiter is the messenger – or API – that takes your request or order and tells the kitchen – the system – what to do. Then the waiter delivers the response back to you; in this case, it is the food.

Adeptio blockchain API is similar to the example above. Except that information  comes from adeptio blockchain to your computer in terms of raw (plain) data.

What is adeptio block explorer?

 

Even though a lot of cryptocurrency users rely on block explorers for all kinds of information, a lot of novice users do not have a clue as to why these tools are so valuable. There are quite a few interesting things one can do with a block explorer, either for adeptio coin or for a specific altcoin. Tools like these should never be underestimated, as they provide a ton of valuable details regarding the cryptocurrency ecosystem.

Why Block Explorers Matter

On the surface, a block explorer looks like a bunch of confusing data when someone is new to cryptocurrency. A lot of data is provided on the screen, yet very little of it makes sense at first. However, once one gets a better understanding of what it is we are actually seeing on the block explorer itself, things quickly start to fall into place.

A cryptocurrency block explorer shows the latest blocks in the blockchain. For example, if a new bitcoin block is discovered by miners, all block explorers should list it the second it is generated on the network. Clicking on a specific network block will provide users with more information regarding its size, when it was found, and more importantly, which transactions it contains.

There is much more to the block explorers we are using today, though. Looking at a specific block also provides the hash of every block. This hash is quite complicated to generate and becomes more difficult as time progresses. There is also a link to previous network blocks, all of which have a unique hash and a set of transactions as well.

A block explorer is also a valuable tool to see how the current block reward for every network block is distributed to the miners who helped solve its hash. The first transaction of every block is the income earned by the miners. All other transactions are fund transfers generated by adeptio users and the associated fees used to broadcast that transaction. While this information may not be vital to everyone, it is a good way to see how adeptio coins are generated by mining and how they are distributed.

Even though the name “block explorer” would suggest it can only be used to look up individual network blocks, that is not the case. Block explorers can also search for transaction IDs and wallet addresses, making them quite a nifty tool to check on specific transactions to your own wallet address. A block explorer quickly becomes a tool everyone in the cryptocurrency relies on virtually every day, yet they are far more versatile than people anticipate.
