DAS API and Compression

With DAS API, you can access Solana's most complete, versatile, and performant NFT + token API.

With compression, you have access to the most cost-efficient way of minting large numbers of digital assets in crypto.

Enhanced Solana APIs

Making sense of Solana data is challenging, as it often appears as a series of long, obscure byte data without context. This makes it difficult for you and your users to understand what's happening.

The Enhanced Transactions APIs solve this by providing enriched, descriptive context. Instead of opaque bytes, you see the details of on-chain transactions, such as whether they are NFT listings, DEX swaps, DeFi loans, or DAO votes.

Webhooks and Websockets

Webhooks allow you to respond to on-chain events in real-time.

With built-in support for over 70 transaction types and low-latency event streaming, you can automate your app's interactions with Solana without spending time on complex smart contract parsers.

The best part? You can input up to 100 thousand addresses into a single webhook.
