In the Bitcoin world there are a number of APIs such as:

blockchain.info blockr.io blockcypher.com etc.

which allow a web application to access block and transaction data from the blockchain, as well as send transactions. Are there similar services available for the Ethereum network?

Yeah there are some, i found

  1. https://www.etherchain.org/apidoc
  2. https://atmospherejs.com/ethereum
  3. http://blockapps.net/apidocs

My understanding is that, we can create a node on our own and access the node with web3.js so that we can reduce latency issues.


https://infura.io/ is another one that provides a regular Ethereum JSON-RPC endpoint as well as an IPFS gateway.


Ethporer provides very cool Ethereum Tokens API.
