The HTTP API serves as the mode of communication between nodes and dApps. It can be used to query important information from the blockchain.

HTTP API can be used while testing smart contract logic to find out the blockchain status and other relevant information.

It encapsulates three interfaces that are a part of the HTTP API, and can be regarded as being API in themselves:

  1. Restful

  2. RPC
