If you’re a developer, then you know that an API key is essential for interacting with most web-based services. The same is true of the blockchain.info API. In order to use the blockchain.info API, you’ll need to generate an API key.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to doing so:
1. Go to blockchain.info and create an account.
2. Once you’re logged in, click on “My Wallet” in the top menu.
3. On the next page, click on “Account Settings.”
4. Scroll down to the “API Key” section and click on “Create New API Key.”
5. A pop-up window will appear. In the “Label” field, enter a name for your key (e.g., “My blockchain.info API Key”).
6. In the “API Permissions” section, select the permissions you want to grant to your key. For most applications, the “Wallet” permission will suffice.
7. Click on “Create New API Key.”
8. A second pop-up window will appear with your new API key. Copy and paste this key into a text document for safekeeping.
9. That’s it! You can now start using the blockchain.info API.
