article cover

We are super excited to bounce into the oncoming 2021, but let us first show you the results we got over the past month – there were a good few of them!

Website Redesign

We updated the homepage and completely changed the structure and information of the About section on the website.

We believe that the homepage has become more informative and interactive as we added our strong points, our partners’ opinion about us, and a section with the most popular tweets.

The About section now displays the information on our team and goals, the purpose of the project, its advantages, and key features. All changes come together with a catchy design!

Developer Tools

We upgraded our dashboard, and now it can offer valuable statistics for your blockchain projects, including:

  • Daily requests;
  • Bandwidth usage;
  • Most common API methods.

Please, register an account to get an overview of how your app is being used.
Also, we’re working on new features that will be available in the user account next year.

Partnership with ConsenSys

We are proud to become a technology partner of a global blockchain leader, ConsenSys, and add support for Hyperledger Besu nodes.

“ConsenSys is very happy to be working closely with GetBlock to help provide a rich and seamless onboarding experience to BESU,” said Tom Lindeman, Director of Strategic Initiatives at ConsenSys. “Getting up and running is fast and easy, and there are a variety of support tools available to monitor and manage your BESU nodes.”

GetBlock at HiveFest

We have really embraced the Hive Ecosystem over the past month. Firstly, we were officially added to their partnership list and then invited to become one of the speakers at HiveFest, an event that was held in AltspaceVR.

Follow our newly created YouTube channel and watch Olivia Kenney, CMO at GetBlock, presenting the service and talking about our integration with Hive:

Industry Collaborations

In December, our team cooperated with a scalable and secure platform Zilliqa to support the ZIL node.

Moreover, GetBlock was listed as a solution on the developers portal of the RSK network.

Nodes Updates

The version of the Besu (Ethereum) (BESU) node has been updated to Hyperledger Besu v20.10.2.

Also, we expanded the capabilities of our BTC node using the Bitcore node. Click here to learn about all available methods (except methods of the Wallet section).

Check out the GetBlock blog or join us on Twitter to stay informed about our announcements, as there are many to see ahead.

Wishing everyone happy holidays and want to thank all our followers and clients who have joined and supported us, and would also like to thank the developers, users, and crypto-enthusiasts who have pushed this blockchain industry forward this year. Let’s rock in 2021!
