BlockSpan Launches NFT API Platform to Accelerate Software Development on the Blockchain
PITTSBURGH, April 17, 2023 (Newswire.com) - BlockSpan, an emerging Web3 innovator founded by leading enterprise data platform architects, is thrilled to announce the launch of its NFT API platform that gives software companies and devs building blockchain applications instant access to real-time and historical NFT and token metadata including cached images.
"Our mission and focus is to make blockchain app development as simple and straightforward as possible while unlocking highly-accurate NFT and token metadata to enable software companies to create and deliver powerful apps in days, not months or even years," said Jon Pastor, Co-Founder of BlockSpan. "BlockSpan enables app developers to leverage the full potential of blockchain technology without sacrificing productivity or having to wade through overly complex codebases."
More specifically, the BlockSpan NFT API platform removes the data middleman, resulting in higher-quality data pulled directly from leading blockchains, NFT collections, and tokens. It also makes scaling to millions of users safe, cost-effective, and seamless. This is done by tapping into more than 400 million ERC721 and ERC1155 tokens, 500 thousand token contracts, and 1 billion token transfer transactions.
How Builders Get Started with BlockSpan
Getting started takes just moments, as builders are prompted to create a free BlockSpan account and then receive an API Key immediately after registering. Once an API Key is received, it can be immediately implemented to access:
- Real-time and historical NFT metadata from leading blockchains, including Ethereum, Polygon, Arbitrum, and Optimism.
- Highly accurate token data, including name, symbol, price, address, type, date created, total supply, and more.
- Cached images stored on IPFS or other cloud services.
- Easy integration with existing Web3 development frameworks.
- The ability to query multiple blockchains at once via a single endpoint.
- Robust error handling capabilities for seamless user experience.
- Extensive documentation and 1-on-1 customer support.
The BlockSpan platform also includes a suite of analytics that makes it easy to identify industry trends, popular NFT collections, and other metrics that can help builders better understand their target audience's wants and needs.
In doing so, BlockSpan is pioneering the way to make blockchain development more affordable, while giving builders tools that they can trust and depend on. For further information on BlockSpan and its offerings, visit blockspan.com, get regular updates on Twitter, and join the Discord community.
