I'm trying to build out a Bitcoin service that requires me to query address balances and other data. So far I've been just using blockchain.info to do these request, but lately i'm hitting the too many request error. I've looked into alternatives, but many of these just went belly up over the years. Blockchain.info seems to be best long standing one that is free up to a point. Even blockstream.info has a limit.
Is there some type of locally hosted service I can just use it for the same type of query data like blockchain.info? I understand I'll need to install bitcoind and download the entire blockchain.
