Do I need to host my own continuous instance of horizon pointed to a DB that I control in order to execute a query like:

SELECT SUM(balance) FROM accounts WHERE inflationdest = {inflation_destination}

I currently have a console app running an operation stream on the .net core SDK and would like to be able to execute that query from inside of it. Trying to figure out what I would need to do to make that happen.

    If you do build this please let us know. I'd love to use something like this. Thanks! – AGitzes Jan 27 '18 at 22:34
  • You could use Fed.network's inflation HTTP API for this specific purpose: https://fed.network/inflation/<account id>. – user25 Feb 1 '18 at 17:12

First of all, you rather need the core db instead of horizon for your query. There is no publicly available core DB and I doubt that ever will be, due to unpredictable loading and security implications.

You have to set up your own Stellar Core node. It doesn't need to be a validator node. That way you'll have access to the relevant and 100% genuine network information.
