2. ✍️ Make Your First Request

You can interact with AlphaZK Aleo provider infrastructure using JSON-RPC.

For manual requests, we recommend interacting with the JSON-RPC via the POST or GET requests. Simply pass in the Content-Type: application/json.

Here is an example you can run from the Terminal/Windows/LINUX command line to retrieve the latest height of Aleo blockchain:

curl --request GET \
     --url https://aleo-testnet3.alphazk.com/v1/latest/height \
     --header 'accept: application/json' \
     --header 'apikey: testKey'

Only use testKey for testing.

Result:
