I would like to use blockchain.info "recieve payment" api for my hidden service, but would like opinion on the following considerations:

  1. Will it be possible to use blockchain.info api for hidden services
  2. Will blockchain.info allow tor connections
  3. will the ip of my hidden server be compromised (broadcasted)

Currently I do not think it is possible, atleast not without remaining "hidden". What you could do is configure your bitcoind server to use a proxy: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Tor

Other alternatives you may want to look into is BitPay as they are currently working on a tor implementation: https://github.com/bitpay/bitcore/pull/210

Also BitWasp will be releasing their marketplace soon which you will be able to configure to run on the Tor network as well.

  • OP doesn't seem to be asking about running the actual bitcoin client, just about talking with the blockchain.info website.

I suggest you run bitcoind directly on your server and then interact with over its own JSON-RPC API. There are libraries for every programming language to do this.
