Combined Expertise Creates the World’s Most Powerful Enterprise NFT Ecosystem
MIAMI, May 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Today, QuickNode, the leading provider of managed blockchain infrastructure, is excited to announce its first acquisition: icy.tools, the leading NFT analytics platform and NFT API. Since the start of the NFT boom in 2021, icy.tools has provided consumers and investors with NFT analytics and market reporting to facilitate more technical analysis of NFT sales. They allow users to discover the latest trending projects being minted, transaction history and portfolio value, and alerting around the latest mints and wallets.
“We’re thrilled about the capabilities that will open up to our customers as a result of this transaction,” said Jackie De La Rosa, COO of QuickNode. “This is a natural fit for QuickNode because NFT integrations require sophisticated blockchain infrastructure behind the scenes,” she continues.
With their expertise in NFT analytics, icy.tools has developed a powerful GraphQL API for developers to access NFT price data, traits/wallet data, and marketplace data from OpenSea, Genie, and Looks Rare, among others. QuickNode will integrate the icy.tools API directly into the existing QuickNode platform, providing even more capabilities to QuickNode NFT API customers. Together, QuickNode and icy.tools will unlock all the immediate needs of NFT developers including analytics, pricing data, and node infrastructure in a multichain environment including Ethereum, BSC, Solana, Polygon, and more through one seamless integration.
“We were already bullish on the power of QuickNode for developers but the acquisition of icy.tools puts QuickNode at the forefront of NFT development, creating an integrated web3 development and analytics platform.” said Alexis Ohanian, founding and managing partner of 776, an early stage QuickNode investor.
As a result of the deal, the icy.tools analytics platform will stay separate while the API will eventually move into the QuickNode developer platform, allowing QuickNode customers immediate access to real-time NFT data on demand.
