Updates Coming to Data API

The Data API, which provides data to XRP Charts and third-party tools, is scheduled to update to version 2.4.0 in approximately two weeks, on 2018-11-07. This version improves the way the Data API imports and summarizes data on XRP Ledger validators.


The Data API v2.4.0 changes provide the following benefits:

  • Adds real-time tracking of validator agreement.
  • Indicates when a validator is included in the network's recommended UNL.
  • Reports validator agreement in 1-hour and 24-hour rolling windows, plus (non-rolling) daily summaries.
  • Tracks whether validators follow the production network, the TestNet, or other ledger history chains.

See the "Action Required" section below for a summary of which methods these changes apply to.
