BlockCypher Adds Ethereum to Web Services

BlockCypher adds Ethereum’s API to their web services to allow clients to build public and private applications across multiple blockchains.

BlockCypher, a blockchain development startup, announced at Exponential Finance Conference in New York this week the addition of Ethereum to their platform. With this addition, companies now have the ability to build public or private applications without having to run blockchain infrastructure. BlockCypher becomes the first software company to provide both Ethereum and bitcoin APIs on the same platform.

“After becoming the leading blockchain web services provider for Bitcoin, we are now doing the same for Ethereum,” says Catheryne Nicholson, BlockCypher CEO and Co-founder. “The services we provide are compatible across all blockchains. This gives developers an easy way to develop once and support multiple of them.”

Nicholson spoke with CoinDesk on how the new integration was due to the high demand from their developers. "Our bread and butter is developers. What they ask us for is what we implement. The number one ask was Ethereum, so we had to bring to life our APIs on the Ethereum blockchain,” Nicholson said.

Through the beta release, the services include an Ethereum account, balance, and transaction APIs. All these services grant the clients information about the blockchain as well as creating transactions easily.

One of the first users for this new platform was the international professional services firm, Deloitte. Eric Piscini, a principal with Deloitte Consulting LLP and the global financial services blockchain leader, explained the company had a dozen blockchain specialists assisting the startup to build two prototypes.

Piscini continues by explaining BlockCypher’s appealing factors to Deloitte. “BlockCypher’s Ethereum APIs give us the ability to deliver differentiated blockchain solutions for our clients. Integrating the capabilities of Ethereum onto a demonstrated platform and our industry experience gives us the ability to offer client solutions across many blockchains.”

BlockCypher’s support for Ethereum and its protocol will continue with more services in the future.
