Center API V2 is now available

Center API V2 is now available

The Center API V2 is the next-generation NFT API — we took everything our users loved about V1 and built on it to create the fastest, most accurate and most powerful NFT API available anywhere.

We're proud to unveil the first set of v2 API endpoints:

  • Show NFT Metadata: View all metadata associated with an NFT, including traits, collection information and media previews.
  • List NFT Media: Retrieve a list of all media available for a specified NFT, including video and audio. Use this endpoint to decide which media to render.
  • Render NFT Media: Specify exactly how you would like to render media for a specified NFT. Users can render media with custom dimensions and file types, and can easily transform NFT media to new formats if desired.
  • NFTs Owned by Address: View all assets owned by an address. This endpoint seamlessly handles both ERC721 and ERC1155 tokens and updates in seconds to reflect new blocks.
  • Owners of NFT Collection: Retrieve all owners of a specified NFT collection.

How do these differ from our v1 API endpoints?

  • Pristine accuracy: We rebuilt our indexing infrastructure from the ground up to ensure that we properly handle and categorize all transactions. This means our data quality is pristine, with new data available just seconds after new blocks are added.
  • Faster: We know speed is important. Our v2 APIs are even faster than v1.
  • More flexible: Our systems dynamically ingest data from the chain, meaning that our systems are built to handle a variety of asset and media types. Even if we haven't seen a particular asset type before, our infrastructure automatically adjusts to properly index and analyze it.
  • More powerful, and safer, rendering: Our V2 renderer handles more media types (audio and video) and allows users to customize media like never before. In V1, users were required to choose one of three media presets. With V2, users can specify precise dimensions and file types for NFT media (incl. on-the-fly media transformations). This also means users can ensure that malicious media files are never shown in their application by transforming media to “safe” file types (e.g., jpg).
