FAQ

What exactly is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a digital currency (also called crypto-currency) that is not backed by any country's central bank or government. Bitcoins can be traded for goods or services with vendors who accept Bitcoins as payment.

 

What does BlockchainAPI do?

BlockchainAPI is a Bitcoin payment processor. Bitcoin has been growing very quickly into a very popular and unique currency, so it is becoming increasingly desirable for merchants to accept Bitcoin as a payment method on their websites.

 

How does BlockchainAPI work?

Your server will send a request to our API for a unique payment address which it can present to the customer. Our server will send callbacks/notifications to your server immediately after payments are received and confirmed 1 times.

 

How do I get started?

Getting started is really simple due to our effective code generator. Simply visit here, enter your secret, Bitcoin address and callback url and hit genrate code and you'll have the ability to create a new unique address using our api.

 

How many times can I use a generated address?

For each coin we offer, the maximum number of times you can use each address may vary.

For Bitcoin, the max number of times you can send funds to a generated address is as many as you want.

For Ethereum, you can only send a payment to a generated address ONE time.

 

What if your services go offline?

If our service ever goes offline, your funds are kept safe as a listing point. If our service shuts down, your funds will be protected so you shouldn't ever worry.

Just contact an Admin or join the Discord group and message a memeber of staff and they will get the issue fixed right away.

 

How much fee do you take?

At the time of writing this (2021-05-04), the current fee price that we take is just 1% of the value of the transaction.

 

Why did my callback url not recieve any data?

If your customer made a payment and you have not received callback information after it has been confirmed, then your callback url is probably in an incorrect format or you used &tor=true when making an address.

Callbacks will ALWAYS be sent to valid urls, returning a 200 http status code.
