Introducing dfuse Streaming API for EOS

One of the biggest features missing from blockchains is a robust and reliable streaming API, which is a major hindrance to the mass adoption of EOS by developers. dfuse - the team behind EOS Canada, is pleased to introduce the beta version of the first streaming API for developers looking to build dapps on EOSIO.

Real-time application area

EOSIO delivered the capability to interact with a blockchain at speeds previously only seen on a conventional database. Applications wishing to operate with real-time speeds need real-time data. By helping to remove the pain points developers experience in interacting with blockchains, such as decreased speed and degraded user experience, we expect with the dfuse Streaming API to see developers focus their efforts on the next generation of dapps. We also expect that the migration towards EOS by these developers will happen much sooner, as more of their previous knowledge and skills are now transferable.

Some of the amazing capabilities offered by the dfuse Streaming API

  • Capture detailed aspects of an action: detailed RAM costs, deferred transactions, internal state changes
  • Quickly process the chain to gather information and state from a specified blockheight
  • (Coming soon) the ability to be notified of changes to a smart contract’s table with deltas
During the beta period - where the API could live some instabilities, we are continuously updating the API to build the strongest platform for your project on EOS.

Join us to build the Web 3.0

We look forward to working alongside and supporting the many talented developers who will pave the way to build the Web 3.0. Please fill out the form below to sign up for your own dfuse API key.
