Blockdaemon AION nodes expose an RPC interface for connecting and interactions.
The following describes how to connect and get info on your node state via the AION API without having to run cURL commands.
For this example, we'll use Postman
First thing, download and install the free Postman app
Open the Postman dashboard and post your Aion node link plus the authorization key to the Aion -RPC environment
This your format for the link: https://aion-mastery.bdnodes.net/?auth=**************
You can get your auth key in the Blackdaemon dashboard
This shows you your node state
Postman also gives you the ability to much much more via the AION API
