Exodus.io
Blockchair is miles ahead of the competition. Their robust set of API's give us all of the data that we need to run our business plus more. The "stats" API endpoint we use to compare our block importers and explorers to ensure that our services are up to date, and we use the public web-based explorers to link to from our wallet. The level of service and support from the Blockchair team is almost unheard of in the crypto-space and we couldn't be more happy with the collaboration and accomodation efforts of the Blockchair team with us.

What happens when you hit your daily limit?
The limits and restrictions vary by the plan type:
Free (Testing) plan:
Once you go over the limit, your IP-address will be blocked from using the free API.
For Pay-as-you-go keys:
The API key does not have daily limits. Once the purchased limit is reached the API key will be blocked.
For Monthly Specialist plans:
The API key has daily limits. Once the limit is reached the API key will be blocked from requesting until the next day.
For Monthly Enterprise and Custom plans:
We do not directly block you from making more requests than indicated in the plans, so your product won't be left without the data. Once you go over the limit consistently, we will contact you to discuss an optimization of your request points made, or an increase in the API limit.
Are there any rate limits?
We impose a soft limit of 5 requests per second on both free and paid plans. This limit is applied only if we experience a very high load on our servers, and it's turned on and off manually by our admins. In case you hit this limit, an error 435 will be returned.

There's an additional hard limit of 30 requests/min. on the free plan.
