WebSocket Support for Base Nodes

Learn how Blockdaemon provide access to its data API using a standard HTTP API or WebSocket connection.

WebSocket allows websites to update content without having to wait for the user. Unlike other techniques that piggyback on the HTTP protocol, the WebSocket protocol creates an ongoing connection between the user and the web service, allowing information to flow easily between both endpoints.

We provide access to our data API using a standard HTTP API or WebSockets connection.
