Accessing Stored Data via REST

KYVE data is available for developers through the REST-API exposed by the consensus validators, a list of REST endpoints can be found here. The REST integration is the native way to access data that has been stored through KYVE.

Understanding Storage Providers and Compression

Because KYVE does not store any data, developers must fetch the underlying data from the storage provider. The KYVE REST-API holds the proof that data on a storage provider is valid and can be retrieved trustless. A list of valid bundles is available at the kyve/v1/bundles/[pool_id] path.

The returned elements include a storage_provider_id which points to a storage provider. In combination with the storage_id developers can retrieve the uploaded data.

Some integrations might compress data before storing it on the storage provider. The compression_id indicates which compression method has been used.

After the data has been retrieved from the storage provider and decompressed, developers can use it in the application.



The bundles query supports pagination via the following query parameters:

pagination.limitnumberDefines the amount of bundles returned
pagination.offsetnumberThe amount of bundles to skip
pagination.keystringDefine key if next_key iteration should be used.
pagination.reversebooleanReverse order

One either has to use pagination.offset or pagination.key. Both can not be used at the same time.

The pagination key is a base64 encoded string. When using inside the browser keep in mind that some characters need to be escaped.

Specific Item

If one wants to find a bundle which contains a specific data item (identified by the index), there is the index query.

indexnumberFilters for the bundle which contains the given index
