Is there an API along the lines of what Blockchain.info (blockchain.info/api) has for accepting Dash? I love the simplicity of Blockchain's API. I just need to be able to generate an address for each of my users and then monitor the blockchain for payments received at the address (callback).

My project (FundChan: funded channel messaging) is currently denominated in bitcoin and I am toying with the idea of switching to Dash if the community is interested.

When I visit https://api.dash.org/ I get the following:

api.dash.org

api documentation forthcoming
Is the API usable by a PHP/MySQL developer such as myself? I would be glad to be a guinea pig (or lab rat) if one is needed to test the API.

Is this the same as the DAPI I see referred to in the Evolution docs?

Hello, I'd suggest checking out Dash Payment Processor: https://dashpay.atlassian.net/wiki/display/DOC/Dash+Payment+Processor. I think this might be what you're looking for, the only downside is that presently it's only capable of deriving addresses based on a single HD Public Key so it doesn't fit your use case exactly.

An easy-to-use API would help increase the number of merchants accepting Dash, so it seems strange to me that this isn't available. The closest thing I could find to a working API is a copay wallet. Surprisingly, it is still in BETA and the code hasn't been updated since October 2016.

Having a easy-to-use API would boost the chance of a e-commerce company accepting Dash, especially with the recent price increase. Is there anyway we could get that going?
