API Keys & Statistics
Web3 APIs are a set of standards and protocols that enable decentralized applications (dApps) to interact with blockchain networks and access blockchain data. These APIs serve as a bridge between dApps and the underlying blockchain infrastructure, allowing developers to build applications that leverage the benefits of blockchain technology. Web3 APIs provide developers with the tools and functionalities to interact with blockchain networks, query data, and perform transactions. They enable dApps to access information such as account balances, transaction history, smart contract functions, and more.
