On the web today, it is commonly assumed that when you query a web service, the returned data is legitimate. However, with the kind of information that blockchains deal with -- financial, ownership, authorizations -- and the decisions you make based on that data could have a material impact on your life or your business, so data integrity becomes critical.
Since the release of the beta version of dfuse in October 2018, our vision has always been of onboarding millions of developers to the blockchain ecosystem by offering a suite of powerful capabilities that make it easy for developers to deliver first-rate user experiences.
At dfuse our mission is to make life easier for every blockchain developer with our slick, performant, and reliable APIs. As part of that mission, over the coming months we’ll be bringing dfuse to more and more of the most promising blockchain networks, based on factors such as the unique value of the technology and of the network, interested user base, strength of developer community, the strength of the teams supporting the network, etc. Today, we are excited to announce that we have recently entered into a strategic technical partnership with the Worbli Foundation to bring our slick blockchain APIs to the Worbli Network.
There is an upcoming hard fork of the EOS mainnet to upgrade to the newly released EOSIO v1.8.1. This fork brings major changes to the payload format that will be served from native API nodes, which will cause challenges for dapps that depend directly on these response formats. But dfuse has done all of the leg work to keep your code working -- we have kept all responses from our APIs consistent, giving our users full backwards compatibility, and requiring no changes in your code for EOSIO v1.8.1.
dfuse, the blockchain API company, helps developers build performant applications by organizing the world's decentralized data. Founded by a team of serial tech entrepreneurs, dfuse is headquartered in Montreal, Canada with the majority of the team being deep technologists with extensive experience in developing and running high-performance tech solutions.
In the blockchain space, things move very quickly and important news can sometimes be buried within the deluge of information. We wanted to ensure that you didn't miss out on any of the exciting things we at dfuse have been up to, so we put together this recap of the second quarter of 2019.
MONTREAL, Canada, June 26, 2019 — dfuse, the blockchain API company, today announced it has raised $3.5 million (USD) in an oversubscribed seed round led by Multicoin Capital, a thesis-driven cryptofund and global blockchain thought leader, and Intel Capital. dfuse was co-founded by Diagram Ventures, which also participated in the round. Also participating in the round were BoxOne Ventures, Panache Ventures, and White Star Capital.
Since before the launch of the mainnet, the team behind dfuse have been focused on developer tooling. Since their launch in February 2019, EOS Studio, a graphical IDE built by the Obsidian Labs team, has been focused on this as well. We each thoroughly believe that if developers have easy access to powerful tools, then user adoption is just around the corner.
We are excited to announce our latest initiative, dfuse Labs. Our mission is to help any developer discover the immense potential that dfuse offers them to quickly develop their project on an EOSIO chain. By sharing code from projects we have built internally, we hope to guide you through the process.
