NFT API Use Cases
The Ubiquity API makes NFT data easy. You can access all the information you need through these simple API endpoints. Activities that used to take time and effort become quick and effortless.
Rapid NFT Ownership Verification
Verifying NFT ownership is crucial in many situations, these include:
- Establishing legitimacy ahead of a transaction
- Checking which NFTs you or your organisation owns
- Integrating NFTs into an application
NFT Ownership Verification Isn’t Straightforward
Blockchains provide an immutable record of NFT ownership or possession, but NFTs themselves generally point to additional off-chain information. There are a number of steps involved in interrogating the smart contract, then finding the associated off-chain data (artwork etc). These steps can be complicated and time-consuming, especially if you need to carry them out multiple times.
Ubiquity Provides Quick and Easy Ownership Verification
With the Ubiquity NFT API you can rapidly verify:
- Which NFTs a given wallet owns
- Which account owns a given NFT
- Off-chain data associated with an NFT (Image/details)
Easy NFT Explorer Development
NFT explorers play an increasingly important role in many technology solutions. They provide visualization of on-chain assets, linked off-chain artwork, and metadata.
NFT explorers are a vital component within:
- NFT Marketplaces
- Play-to-earn and web3 games
- NFT Galleries
- Artist Portfolios
- …and more
Traditionally, NFT Explorers Require Prohibitive Build Effort
NFT data is massive and constantly growing, it is also spread across many web2 and web3 sources. Getting access to these sources is a non-trivial activity. Maintaining up-to-date information only adds to the complexity.
The Ubiquity API Makes NFT Explorer Development Easy
Ubiquity data is always up-to-date and rapidly available. A single interface provides all NFT data, both on-chain and off-chain. All Ubiquity NFT data is stored by Blockdaemon, removing any IPFS associated lag.
Convenient Access to NFT Analytics
The ability to extract key analytics is important for any organization dealing with NFTs. Analytics provide insights into
- NFT minting trends
- NFT trading trends
- NFT activity correlated with world events or social media
- NFT activity correlated with ETH price or gas fees
Accessing NFT Analytics is Not Straightforward
Key information can be spread across the entire blockchain. Extracting this data into useful and usable information is not easy.
Ubiquity Gives Easy Access to NFT Analytics
The Ubiquity NFT API lets you easily extract key NFT information and gain valuable insights from the Ethereum blockchain.
Complete NFT Provenance Audit
Due to the immutable nature of blockchains, it is possible to track the full timeline of any NFT. This is useful for:
- Verifying NFT authenticity by tracing it back to the mint event
- Checking if someone ever owned a given asset
- Checking if someone ever owned an asset from a specific collection
- Finding out how many times a given NFT has changed hands
Extracting Provenance Data Can Take Time and Effort
An NFT’s transaction history and corresponding events can be spread across a vast number of blocks. Trawling these transactions to extract information can be a painful exercise.
Ubiquity Provides a Full Provenance History
With the Ubiquity NFT API, you can quickly and easy visualize full ownership history for an Ethereum NFT.
