Using the blockfrost API I quired the transaction history of a NFT using the following script:


from blockfrost import BlockFrostApi, ApiError, ApiUrls


api = BlockFrostApi(
    project_id='my_secret_key',  
    base_url=ApiUrls.mainnet.value,
)

try:
    health = api.health()
    print(health) 

    assets = api.assets_policy(my_policy_id)
    asset_history = api.asset_transactions(assets[13].asset, return_type='pandas')
    print(asset_history)

except ApiError as e:
    print(e)

Getting this response:

My questions:

  • Does each line represent a transaction where the NFT was transferred from one address to another address? If not, why are there so many transactions?

  • What is the tx_index?

  • Is the block height simply the size of the new block added to the ledger? (in bytes?)

  • Where can I find a reference so that I can easily answer these questions myself and not have to create a StackOverflow post each time?

  • Correct, that is the history of transaction of that specific asset
  • That is the index of the transaction within a block
  • block_height is the height of the block, in other words, it is the number of the block in the blockchain
  • Directly on docs.blockfrost.io, go to the specific endpoint and click on the 200 response to roll down the descriptions of each fields:
