4.1.0

Note this update adds the invoker tag field for indexing smart contract transactions. This will only be added for all new smart contracts after updating to this version (or newer). If you want/need to retroactively index this field for existing transactions, check these docs for info on manually triggering a re-index which will populate the invoker field where necessary.

      • GET /public-blockchain-address

      • GET /v1/public-blockchain-address

      • POST /public-blockchain-transaction
