Global Blacklist API now supports Tribes


The Global Blacklist API is a personal project I work on to provide a consumable API interface to my blacklist as well as other blacklist projects.

Projects can choose which blacklists they want to use and are not limited to just my blacklist. For example SteemCleaner's real-time list available as well.

Global Blacklist API 2.0 added major performance changes as I received better endpoints for the blacklists I support.

This update adds dynamic support Tribes and renames Oracle-D to Yoodoo.

Dynamic Blacklists Supported

  • BuildAWhale
  • SteemCleaners
  • Redeemer
  • MinnowBooster
  • Actifit
  • Yoodoo
  • Smartsteem
  • D-Tube
  • All Tribes (New)

The Global Blacklist API is a dynamic real-time API that exposes the above 8 blacklists & Tribes via an easy to use interface. There may be up to a 30-minute delay before our API exposes changes to one of the above blacklists. More blacklists for well-known projects are being integrated and will be announced when available.

Over 50% of Steem dApps use the Global Blacklist API in some form.

How to use Global Blacklist API

Description: Query user blacklist status
Sample Response:
{"user":"shanedawson","blacklisted":["steemcleaners","dtube", "buildawhale"]}


Method: GET

As a user of the Global Blacklist API, you can choose which blacklists you want to subscribe to. As other blacklists are added you only need to update your blacklist choices. I recommend using a configuration parameter that allows you to easily specify what lists you want to look for, or just check if the user is on any blacklist.

Integration with Blacklist Notifier Chrome Extension

The Blacklist Notifier Chrome Extension fully supports the Global Blacklist API and provides curators an easy way to know if a user is on a blacklist and which one.

The Chrome extension supports the following Steem front ends:

  • SteemPeak
  • Pariko
  • Actifit
  • PALNet
  • SteemLEO
  • StemGeeks
  • Creative Coin
  • WeedCash
  • SplinterTalk

The Blacklist Notifier is supported with Google Chrome & Brave browsers, Firefox support may come in the future.

Do you use the Global Blacklist API?

If you use the Global Blacklist API in your product or service, please reach out and let me know so I can gather a comprehensive list of projects supporting it. Last time I checked over 50% of popular dApps used the Global Blacklist API in some form.


The Global Blacklist API is completely free to use for any Steem project. No fees are charged for its use.


If you maintain a blacklist, please contact me on or Discord to be added. I will develop support for your blacklist and list it without charge.


So if I understand correctly there's one list for all tribes? I mean if they're banned from one tribe, the API lists as banned from all?

Each have their own blacklist.

MinnowBooster answered me that I was not on their blacklist, but on this sheet is triggered, would you please decide each other?

You are in fact on their blacklist. I have no idea why but I can see your name on their blacklist.

Fix it please

I have no control over their blacklist and no idea why they blacklisted you.


You are on their blacklist, he is mistaken.

I could not prove it. So make a whitelist, let everyone liked me now as moral compensation:)

Hey @themarkymark I think the API is down

That is not a valid query.

The available queries are in the post.

Never mind I just verified it and it works.

This post has been just added as new item to timeline of Global Blacklist API on Steem Projects.

This is awesome.

thanks for doing this @themarkymark. I love having the extension. When I'm curating it's so convenient. The blacklist notice pops up and I move on.
