Blockstream Satellite API

Broadcast your data to the world with Blockstream Satellite, paid for using the Lightning Network.

Easy To Use
Blockstream Satellite API provides developers with an easy-to-use RESTful API that can be used to create applications that broadcast messages globally using the Blockstream Satellite network.
Unrivaled Privacy
Unlike data sent over the internet, the source and recipient of broadcasts are not determinable by inspecting broadcast data. Communication privacy may be further enhanced by using encryption in messages, and payment privacy is ensured through the use of the Lightning Network's onion routing.
The Blockstream Satellite API is open for anyone to use and the only criteria for using the service is that data is paid for. Developers can integrate the API into existing applications or build new services on top of it, and can send both encrypted and unencrypted data.
Resilient And Stable
The Blockstream Satellite API is built to withstand a variety of potential interruptions. API servers and ground stations are geographically distributed around the world, ensuring that you’ll always be able to get your broadcast out.
Global Coverage
Anyone within our coverage area with an inexpensive, connected satellite antenna can receive broadcast data from Blockstream Satellites.
