Avalanche Launches Glacier API Beta for Enriched Blockchain Data

Avalanche, the fastest and most reliable smart contracts platform, has announced the beta launch of Glacier API. This platform provides developers with a one-stop-shop for all enriched blockchain data from Avalanche and Ethereum, as well as the official API service indexing Avalanche Subnets.

Glacier API Beta offers a variety of useful data for explorer and wallet services, token transfers, and more. The platform was originally created to power the Avalanche Subnet Block Explorer and Core Wallet, which provides balances, transfers, and associated metadata for native assets, ERC-20 tokens, and NFTs.

By utilizing Glacier, developers can easily build products that leverage real-time and historical transaction data, which is all served through highly performant APIs. Additionally, developers that join the Glacier API Beta will receive free access to the platform’s services and will have the opportunity to shape future feature development.

Avalanche plans to expand Glacier’s capabilities as a powerful indexed blockchain data provider to include additional raw and derived transaction data, guided by user feedback. To incentivize participation, the company is giving away limited-edition merchandise to developers that demo Glacier and submit user experience surveys or bug reports.

The Glacier API Beta is a significant step forward for developers looking to build on Avalanche’s platform, providing easy access to a vast array of enriched blockchain data. As the platform continues to expand, the opportunities for developers to create innovative blockchain solutions will only increase.
