subscribeToBlockHeadersWithChainLocks

This endpoint helps support simplified payment verification (SPV) via DAPI by providing access to block headers which can then be used to verify transactions and simplified masternode lists.

Returns: streams the requested block header information
Parameters:

NameTypeRequiredDescription
----------
One of the following:
from_block_hashBytesNoReturn records beginning with the block hash provided
from_block_heightIntegerNoReturn records beginning with the block height provided
----------
countIntegerNoNumber of blocks to sync. If set to 0 syncing is continuously sends new data as well (default: 0)
