    Etherscan is an Ethereum block explorer (https://etherscan.io/)

    Here is some Python code to get the balance from an ETH address using their API.

    # get balance of a wallet from Etherscan
    # parameter: <ETH wallet address>
    def eth_balance(address):
        api_url="https://api.etherscan.io/api?module=account&action=balance&tag=latest&apikey=YourApiKeyToken&address="
        fetch_url=api_url+address
        try:
            req = requests.get(fetch_url)
            req.raise_for_status()
        except Exception as err:
            print('failed to talk to Etherscan - {0} - {1}'.format(err.message, err.args))
            sys.exit(2)
        try:
            resp = req.json()
        except Exception as err:
            print('failed to parse JSON - {0} - {1}'.format(err.message, err.args))
            sys.exit(2)
        rawbalance = resp['result']
        balance=round((int(rawbalance)/1000000000000000000),2)
        return balance
