Incoming Upgrade

Dear customers,

For several months, we have been hard at work upgrading the foundations of BlockCypher APIs in order to add more features while guaranteeing uptime for our clients. In addition, we have been adding capacity to deal with increased demand.

As such, on Sunday October 24 between 9pm and 11pm UTC, we will be upgrading some core parts of BlockCypher APIs. While we do not expect to be down in this time window, there is still a small probability of short downtime or longer response times.

Additionally, please note that, on Monday October 25 between 1pm and 4pm, we will reset BCY and BETH testnet. Both chains will start over again at block 0; address balances will be wiped and all transactions will be removed. During that time, it is possible for the bcy/test and beth/test to be inaccessible for a short amount of time.

Thank you for using BlockCypher and we are looking forward for more exciting features in 2022!

The BlockCypher Team


  • October 24 9-11pm -> possible downtime during upgrade.
