Exchange Operators

Exchange operators are network participants who run Mina nodes on a Mina network but usually don't produce blocks.

Instead of running a Mina node and an archive node, use the Rosetta API that is designed specifically for exchange operators.

It implements an open-source blockchain-agnostic specification designed by Coinbase.

Rosetta API

This section describes how to install, run and use the Rosetta API instance connected to the Mina network.

Use Rosetta API if you are:

  • Querying historical data from the Mina blockchain
  • Integrating the Mina blockchain with your exchange
  • Building blockchain applications, such as explorers and wallets

Using Rosetta for building your application is preferrable, as it's API is more appropriate for applications and far more stable than GraphQL.
