In building a one-stop infrastructure and service provider that “Make your Web3 Real”, what we focus on at NodeReal is helping Web3 developers globally build and scale up your projects. NodeReal provides a suite of blockchain APIs that dramatically simplify and optimize your API request, including standard APIs (RPC & Archive node service) introduced in MegaNode and enhanced APIs in the NodeReal Marketplace.

Through this article, you will learn:

  • What are Enhanced APIs and why they can make your life as a developer easier
  • What is NodeReal Enhanced API & Our Advantages on Ethereum
  • An Open Web3 API Marketplace is Built For Developers, By Developers

What is NodeReal Enhanced API

Enhanced APIs are customized APIs for your needs and requirements. These APIs provide functionalities even above standard APIs which makes your life as a developer easier.

Say you are an NFT project builder, we believe one of your focuses is how to get all the NFTs information you need in a more efficient way. Rather than searching, indexing, and storing data yourself, which usually is very complex, expensive, and difficult to maintain, you can now just make one simple request to fetch specific NFT information for both ERC-721 and ERC-1155 tokens with NodeReal’s NFT API.

Likewise, you can easily find various Fungible Token APIs, Debug APIs, Account and Balance APIs, DeFi APIs, Naming Service APIs, etc in the  NodeReal Marketplace. They all abstract away the complexities and difficulties of building and maintaining your own data infrastructure.

Currently, we provide enhanced APIs in GraphQL and JSON-RPC and RESTFul format.

Accessing Ethereum Like Never Before with NodeReal Enhanced API

Ethereum and BNB Smart Chain (BSC) are the most popular and thriving ecosystems trusted by a lot of Web3 builders. NodeReal respects the voice of the community, hereby we currently focus on providing enhanced APIs for those two networks.

Through an innovative architecture, we break the monolith node into virtual nodes to provide fast scaling capability and higher performance compared with other service providers. In addition, as NodeReal Enhanced APIs are based on pre-indexed historical data and real-time data pipeline, we are able to provide the most comprehensive and reliable Web3 development tools and data service.

Below is a snapshot of the Ethereum Enhanced APIs we have supported so far.

NFT APIs with Snapshot Data

NodeReal has supported more than 8 enhanced APIs in the NFT category, and all of these APIs are the abstractions of best practices we recommend for Web3 developers.  

Moreover, we provide the snapshot data, e.g. querying the holder's address of an NFT by block number, which is extremely difficult to be maintained by developers themselves.

Fungible Token APIs

The Fungible Token APIs can be quite useful if you are building a wallet or exchange applications. Here we provide the token balance, metadata, holders, holding, and transfer APIs, which enable you to use one API request to query the token holding information, and supply and transfer transactions on the Ethereum network in a split second.

We are industry leaders in providing a variety of Ethereum APIs for fungible tokens. Our APIs for fungible are curated while working with different DAOs, exchanges, and wallets to cater to their needs and requirements.

Competitive Analysis: Why NodeReal

As compared to other Ethereum Enhanced API providers, NodeReal has cherry-picked the most requested and used enhanced APIs in its marketplace. As shown above, NodeReal provides the most comprehensive set of NFT APIs regarding account and ownership. That’s because we believe that the account and ownership of NFTs are the most important feature that will make Web3 developer’s life much easier, especially for applications that need to display the ownership of NFT collections or for a particular token ID of the collection.

For fungible tokens, We cover all majorly required Ethereum APIs, such as for holders, balance, and even metadata, and while comparing that with all major providers only NodeReal provides such an extensive range of APIs for holders.

We have recently launched a few more APIs with Covalent and Arbitrum to help you get the data you need for your blockchain applications.

An Open Web3 API MarketPlace Built for Developers, By Developers

With this, we are also reaching out to our wider developer communities! If you have an idea for an API for our blockchain community, don’t hesitate to contact us. We welcome contributions and collaboration in all forms!
