Ordinals API Overview

The Ordinals API provides you with fast, reliable data for Bitcoin ordinals and BRC-20 tokens via an easy-to-use REST interface.

Using our endpoints, you can retrieve metadata for a particular inscription, trading activity, all inscriptions held by a particular address, and more. Start integrating ordinals and BRC-20 tokens into your app with one of the most reliable APIs on the market today.

Ordhook: Want to run your own infra? Set up your own Ordhook, the indexer that powers the Ordinals API.

Ordinals Explorer: The Ordinals API powers Hiro’s Ordinals Explorer, which lets you rapidly discover inscriptions and verify on-chain activity.

Need help building with the Ordinals API? Reach out to us on the #ordinals channel on Discord under the Hiro Developer Tools section. There’s also a weekly office hours on Discord every Thursday at 11am ET.
