Reading blockchain via Data API

Hi all,

Just want to double confirm that I am understanding correctly.

I am only able to use Rosetta API endpoints if I am running my own node within the same docker as Rosetta API?

For example if someone was running a blockchain node with Rosetta API endpoints - would I be able to communicate with it to read transactions, or do I need my own node for that?

Thank you

no

yes

imo that should have been clear from the fact that rosetta is done over HTTP
but as always, do think about trust :person_shrugging:

I think those tell you do deploy your own node+Rosetta implementation because they can’t, in general, guide you on finding a trustworthy Rosetta server.
