Construction API

Write to the chain
The construction API facilitates actions such as generating and sending transactions to the chain. The available methods have been listed below.

Construction

Derive address from a public key

Method: POST
URL: /construction/derive
Sample Request:
{
"network_identifier" : {
"blockchain" : "ont",
"network" : "mainnet"
},
"public_key" : {
"hex_bytes" : "<pubkey hex string>",
"curve_type" : "secp256k1",
"metadata" : {
"type" : "hex"
}
}
}
In the type field, the two address formats supported are hex and base58. The two supported curve types are secp256k1 and edwards25519.
Sample Response:
{
"address" : "<address>",
"metadata" : {
"type" : "hex"
}
}
