Is there an api for etherscan and rinkeby websocket? I've checked the link below https://etherscan.io/apis#websocket but see no way of accessing websockets in rinkeby. Is there a way to test the web socket etherscan api on rinkeby to see my test transactions go through?

    Do you know about infura? You can connect to any public network using infura

It appears not, because https://rinkeby.etherscan.io/apis#websocket doesn't exist.


Infura provides one for Rinkeby over here.

    This doesn't address the question, which was about Etherscan's websocket API. "Is there a way to test the web socket etherscan api on rinkeby...?" Infura supports the web3 websocket subscription interface, but that's unrelated to the Etherscan API.

  • @smarx My suggestion was for a comparable option from infura. It looks like I missed the actual question at the end. Jun 6, 2018 at 0:35
