I need to know how the blockchain loopkup works like blockchain-info. I need to also know how web3 api works, how does it interfaces with the blockchain? What is the protocol that web3 uses?


Web3 uses the JSON-RPC API to talk to the Ethereum node (geth, parity, ethereumj, etc).

  • can we say "JSON-RPC" is a protocole ? like HTTP ?
