Overview

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:


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.


Seamless NFT/Social Media Integration

Increasingly, users want to display NFTs via their social media accounts. This presents a number of technical challenges for social media providers, the most important of these are:

Linking NFTs to Social Media Accounts Adds Complexity

Providing innovative and effective social media platforms already requires significant effort and activity. Providing NFT support adds multiple layers of engineering and process complexity.

Ubiquity Removes Social Media/NFT Complexity

  • NFT minting trends
  • NFT trading trends
  • NFT activity correlated with world events or social media

Accessing NFT Analytics is Not Straightforward

Key information can be spread across the entire blockchains. Extracting this data into useful and usable information is not easy

Due to the immutable nature of blockchains, it is possible to track the full timeline of any NFT. This is useful for:

Extracting Provenance Data Can Take Time and Effort

An NFT 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.
