GetBlock is a service that provides connection to blockchain nodes of the most popular cryptocurrencies with JSON-RPC, REST, and WebSockets. Now you can immediately connect your app to a blockchain, as GetBlock relieves you from running a node yourself.

Today, we are glad to announce that you can start integrating the XZC node to your business, as it is now available for connection on GetBlock.

Zcoin is all about how to make transactions completely anonymous. This cryptocurrency utilises zero-knowledge proofs via the Sigma Protocol (formerly Zerocoin protocol) to provide better privacy for its users. Such a structure allows users to send and receive coins without revealing their transaction history.

Zcoin also utilizes Dandelion++ to conceal your IP address when making a transaction on the network. Another great feature used by Zcoin is Merkle Tree Proofs (MTP), the designed Proof-of-Work algorithm which aims to be memory hard with fast verification.

Zcoin node is now live on GetBlock, so let’s get familiar with the details and answer some questions:

  • Where do we come from? Our non-stop working servers are located in Germany, that is why we provide reputable work, and connection can be established at all hours;
  • How fast are we? Pretty fast, it’s not that easy to keep up with! Start using the XZC node within seconds as the connection speed is 1 GB/s;
  • What tools do we use? Each node can be integrated using various API methods, while the method available for XZC is JSON-RPC.

GetBlock provides access to the XZC node at no cost and no limits. Use as many requests as you want, restrictions aren’t applied. In order to receive your personal API key for direct interaction with the blockchain, fill in the form on the website.
