As developers and infrastructure engineers, we understand the challenges of running full Cardano stack. You need to install the Cardano node, keep it synchronized and maintain it. What's more, you may have to build or use additional tools to process and interpret blockchain data in a usable form.
This poses significant barriers to what's really important - to develop the applications. That's why we created Blockfrost.io. It is built for developers, by developers.
Blockfrost.io is an instant, public and freely accessible API that removes the obstacles for developers, so that everyone can start building apps on Cardano. With Blockfrost.io, developers can start doing what they love, without the need of running and maintaining additional infrastructure and tooling themselves.
Blockfrost.io - Cardano development made easy!
Easy integration to the Cardano blockchain. API and IPFS. Free plan to get developers going.
Along with the IPFS support in Blockfrost, we're also launching a new public gateway for the Cardano community:
