We provide a comprehensive set of tools and products for blockchain developers and the blockchain community. However, there is more than just tools and products – it is also about support and service. We believe that everyone should feel supported with excellent service.

This belief motivated us to create a series of short-form content to support new user onboarding. In this series, we walk you through the essential steps when creating an account at Anyblock.

First, we explain how easily you can sign up for a new account with us. Most of our tools and products require you to have a registered account.

Second, we walk you through your profile features. We offer a lot for free users, but we recommend having a paid account to harness the full functionality.

Third, we invest a lot in producing content, especially documentation. We help you to navigate through our Documentation Hub to find what you are looking for quickly.

Lastly, our products work with a simple API key – creating one is easy. We will explain step-by-step what you need to do to get your key fast.

Let’s get started!

How to sign up for a free account at Anyblock?

Our sign-up process is easy and fast. To create an account, you need to take three simple steps.

Step one, find the “Sign Up” button in the top-header menu on all of our sites or visit the dedicated URL by clicking here.

You can log in to your account without verification but can’t use most features. You can, however, re-request the verification on your profile.

That’s it – it is that simple and easy. Now you can enjoy all the benefits of having a free account with us with extra functionalities like API keys, SQL access, RPC, alerting, and more.

How to manage your account at Anyblock?

We provide a variety of features through your account at Anyblock. Navigation is super simple. Our interface leads with a straightforward header menu bar.

Most of our features are available for free but premium account holders do get some perks. You can subscribe or check your subscription details on the Subscription tab. We manage the subscriptions through Stripe to provide a secure checkout process. There you can also edit your billing information for invoicing.

Your account is straightforward, and it is easy to navigate. You can update and manage most information through our user interface. But how exactly can you use most of our features? That is where our documentation enters the picture.

The video is here:

How to navigate through our Documentation Hub?

We believe that documentation is essential, and it is crucial for complex tools like ours. That is why we created and constantly update our Documentation Hub. Navigating through the Hub is easy as we organized the relevant information into groups to find the information you need quickly.

In the Hub, the first and probably most important category is the Anyblock Documentation. It is the complete documentation for our tools and products. You can find information on API authorization, details on ElasticSearch, SQL usage, and the manuals on our alerting feature.

For those who want to work via API, we provide information in the API Endpoints. You can browse our REST API documentation for RPC and data. We use Swagger to present the information to you.

We also provide a standard FAQ under the Frequently Asked Questions category. There you can find information on general questions, data, metrics and indexes, technical questions, and of course, account and billing information.

How to get your API key at Anyblock?

Most of our users use the help of APIs to work with our products and tools. The first step to being able to do that is to get your very own API key. Getting the key is super simple.

Login to your account and find the API Keys tab on your profile’s top header menu bar. Click on Create a New API Key button. Fill out the details, name, validation, and domain. Hit the Create Key button. That’s it.
