Access high-quality on-chain data with our Blockchain API Integration

Enhance User Experience with
Real-Time Blockchain Data

Easily provide your users with live updates about-on-chain activity by integrating with Chainlens Blockchain API.

Common Challenges with Blockchain API Integrations

Complexity of Integration

Integrating with blockchain APIs can be challenging due to a lack of enriched data about assets from providers. Chainlens simplifies this process providing not just low-level block, transaction and event information, but also data about tokens, NFTs, smart contracts and account assets.

Real-Time Data Access

Accessing live blockchain data is crucial for many blockchain applications yet challenging working with blockchain nodes. Chainlens provides seamless instant data access via its robust API to monitor asset, account or smart contract activity as it happens.

Monitoring Smart Contracts

Detecting specific events taking place on smart contracts usually requires a lot of custom code, with Chainlens you can easily monitor for specific events with a few lines of code.

Impact of Challenges

Development Delays

Integrating directly with blockchain nodes is complex and time-consuming for developers. Only primitive information about the blockchain is available. Working with Chainlens blockchain API can save weeks or months of development time.

Increased Costs

Difficulties in accessing and utilizing blockchain APIs can result in higher development costs. Chainlens provides an affordable solution that minimizes these costs.

Security Risks

Creating your own API services comes with their own security risks. Chainlens utilizes offensive security testing practices to mitigate against service vulnerabilities.

Frequently asked questions

What is blockchain API integration and why is it important?

Blockchain API integration allows applications to interact with blockchain networks, providing instant access to transaction data and enabling various functionality such as monitoring token transfers or smart contract events. It's important for enhancing transparency of on-chain activity.

How do you integrate with the Chainlens blockchain APIs?

Integrating with Chainlens’ blockchain APIs requires accessing  to fetch and display data from the blockchain, such as transactions, blocks, and smart contracts. Our API provides comprehensive documentation to guide developers through the integration process.

Can I use ChatGPT with Chainlens Blockchain API?

ChatGPT can easily generate code to work with the Chainlens API, you just need to provide it with the Chainlens API page which you obtain from the Chainlens navigation menu.

Can I start for free?

Yes, we offer a Developer Plan which allows you to run Chainlens locally on your machine for free. This plan includes block, transaction, address and contract views.
Simply fill out this form to get started!

How do I get started with Chainlens?

Simply book a demo to learn more about our services and how Chainlens can benefit your project. Our team will guide you through the setup and onboarding process.

Why do you need a blockchain API?

Blockchain is a decentralized ledger technology that records transactions across multiple nodes. These nodes have their own APIs which are optmized for network operation, not providing information about on-chain assets such as tokens. By providing a dedicated blockchain explorer API, you are able to access enriched blockchain data that is simply not available by querying blockchain nodes directly.

What are the key considerations for integrating with Chainlens’ blockchain API?

Chainlens API is a RESTful service built using the OpenAPI standard. You use OpenAPI client generators or even large language models (LLMs) such as ChatGPT to easily create code to pull data from this service.

What are some of the use cases for using the blockchain API?

Use cases include real-time transaction monitoring, smart contract event monitoring, on-chain asset tracking, and integrating blockchain data with existing applications for enhanced analytics and reporting.

What blockchains does Chainlens support?

Compatible with various public EVM networks and appchains. We support private blockchains such as Hyperledger Besu and Quorum.

What are the pricing plans for Chainlens?

Chainlens offers flexible pricing plans tailored to the needs of different networks, from small startups to large established networks. Check our pricing page.
