Request limits - for every user

  • Every Chainabuse user can generate a standard API Key with a usage limit of 10 calls per month (1 call= maximum of 50 reports) to help users stay safe and enable them to check blockchain addresses and domains before signing a potentially dangerous transaction. Users can also use the Search bar on the Chainabuse platform to check whether crypto addresses and websites have been reported.
  • Law Enforcement has access to specific API filters and can retrieve data (such as victim's location, evidence, scammer's IP addresses, social media handles, private reports not visible on the website and much more) only available to Law Enforcement. Please reach out here: to request access
  • Partners have access to premium access. Please reach out here: to request access.
