Every minute, blockchains move over $2 million in value. But understanding and acting on this in-flight value is challenging for even the most sophisticated and well-resourced of teams. Before any transaction can be confirmed on-chain, it must move through the mempool. As we have previously discussed, this is an often overlooked portion of the blockchain ecosystem. 

At Blocknative, we run Notify — a global node network that captures and organizes mempool transactions in real-time. Historically, we have focused on the Ethereum blockchain. Today, we are excited to announce the addition of Bitcoin support to our distributed node infrastructure.

Now developers can access real-time state change notifications for both Ethereum and Bitcoin transactions with a single, consistent API.

Deploying Value On-Chain With Gold-Backed NFTs

Blocknative

By Blocknative in blockchain, usability, Case Study, Dapp, DeFi, Notify on April 15, 2020

What would coin collecting look like in the digital world? 

Jesse Johnson became obsessed with answering this question. And after he co-founded Mintable — a platform that makes it easy to mint and manage NFTs — he set to work to answer that question. 

Given his background in NFTs (non-fungible tokens), Jesse wanted to explore the idea of NFTs with intrinsic value. This eventually led to the creation of Bullionix — a decentralized gold mint where anyone can use Digix gold tokens to create NFTs. EachNFT minted on Bullionix has a specific weight of gold staked to it. Bullionix is the first crypto project to combine scarce NFTs with digital gold.

DeFi Saver: Making It Easier To Manage DeFi Assets

Blocknative

By Blocknative in blockchain, usability, Case Study, Dapp, DeFi, Notify on February 18, 2020

DeFi is a blockchain term that refers to decentralized finance, and the ethos of the term refers to the creation of an open financial system that doesn’t rely on authorities or intermediaries. Today most DeFi activity is on the Ethereum network and ranges from digital assets to financial smart contracts to protocols.

With DeFi, developers can program applications that can store, lend, borrow, or otherwise manage digital assets. These applications often come to life in the form of smart contracts or protocols — which can be leveraged by other developers to build on. 

Today we will explore this emerging world that seeks to reinvent the financial system.

Internal Transaction Monitoring Is The Missing Puzzle Piece To Understanding Your Smart Contract Activity

Chris Meisl

By Chris Meisl in blockchain, Notify, Mempool on February 13, 2020

Blockchains are transaction engines, enabling the exchange of value in ways that have not been possible before. The potential is exciting. But the complexity of smart contract-based transactions can make it difficult for even the most experienced Ethereum developers to understand what is actually going on with a transaction.

Today, we are excited to announce that Notify — Blocknative’s real-time blockchain transaction management and monitoring platform — now makes it easier to understand value transfer with support for internal transactions.
