Get Genesis in multiple chunks

Get genesis document in multiple chunks to make it easier to iterate through larger genesis structures. Each chunk is produced by converting the genesis document to JSON and then splitting the resulting payload into 16MB blocks, and then Base64-encoding each block.

Upon success, the Cache-Control header will be set with the default maximum age.


  • OBJECT - parameters
    • chunk: INTEGER - Sequence number of the chunk to download. (default: 0)
curl \
--header "Content-Type: application/json" \
--data '{
  "jsonrpc": "2.0",
  "id": 1,
  "method": "genesis_chunked",
  "params": {
    "chunk": "10"




Due to the genesis data is too huge, All That Node is prohibiting the transmission of the API method.

  • OBJECT - genesis data
{"jsonrpc":"2.0","id":1,"error":{"code":-32603,"message":"Internal error","data":"genesis response is large, please use the genesis_chunked API instead"}}
