  1. curl localhost:26657/status would return latest_block_height field, which is node’s latest block height
  2. curl localhost:26657/block would return the latest block itself.

Replace 26657 with the port your Tendermint RPC is on, if needed.

Hi thank you posting, I am having issues with curl
curl: (7) Failed to connect to “” port 26657 after 0 ms: Connection refused, this is the first time initializing the node using snapshot looks like RPC server is not running, could you help with possible issues ?
