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



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.
