The Light API is a widely used API service for EOSIO blockchains, with many features such as showing all current token balances for a given account, showing the security settings of an account, enabling searching for accounts by public keys and many more.

The API is publicly available for EOS, Telos, BOS, WAX, Europechain, Worbli and Instar blockchains and is used by major block explorers such as Bloks, EOSX and various others.

The Light API has always been available worldwide, but has had poor performance in various Asian regions. To support these regions Worbli and EOS Amsterdam have now launched a new service in Singapore that brings the Light API for all supported blockchains closer to Asian users. Now the response times have been significantly reduced, which greatly improves the user experience.

The service in Asia is accessible via the same links as worldwide, and a geo-aware DNS will point to the nearest location.

Current sponsors of the project include Worbli, Scatter, Telos WPS, Newdex and EOS Amsterdam.

More information about the API can be found here.
