Why Institutions Should Use The Ubiquity NFT API

The Ubiquity NFT API is built on Blockdaemon’s robust and scalable architecture. It is an institutional-grade offering that major businesses rely on.An API is an essential part of a developer’s toolkit, as it gives projects on-demand access to data from sources external to their application. With Ubiquity, NFT data can be leveraged to build

  • Web3 apps
  • NFT marketplaces
  • NFT portfolios
  • NFT support for wallets
  • and much more

The number of NFTs minted and use cases in the market are increasing exponentially, and that growth shows no sign of slowing. However, NFT information can be fragmented and difficult to access - there are on-chain and off-chain components.

You Can Instantly Access Massive Amounts of Data

NFT data and standards also vary across platforms. This makes it difficult to access NFT data in a user-friendly way. Blockdaemon has abstracted away the complexity of accessing NFT data. This greatly simplifies access to NFT data. Our NFT API supports:

  • Near Real Time indexing of collections
  • ERC721, ERC1155 token types, including bespoke formats like Cryptopunks and more
  • On-chain NFT data with corresponding off-chain metadata and media
  • Historical sales of NFTs from genesis
  • Realtime and historical events (mints, transfers, sales)

Our robust NFT Data sets include:

  • 100,000+ collections
  • 100,000+ contracts
  • 95+ million tokens
  • 165+ million events
  • 600+ events processed per minute
