/get_sila_balance (ECDSA only)

Checks token balance on a blockchain address.

IMPORTANT: This endpoint allows checking the balance of an address per our smart contract, and is only valid for apps still using the legacy ECDSA authentication. For apps using Auth you can check the balance of a wallet with the /get_wallet endpoint.


The authsignature and usersignature headers are not required for this request; this is a public endpoint.
