The time has come to share the results of GetBlock’s hard work with everyone. We’re proud of our people and proud to say that the listed below results never settle our team, we are always searching for growth and development.
So here we go:
Integration with Algorand
Being a highly scalable and efficient network, Algorand is currently a popular choice among Web3 developers and GetBlock now offers instant access to Algorand’s expanding ecosystem, thus making it possible to create various successful decentralized applications in an easy way.
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced developer you can now try out the Algorand blockchain’s features under realistic conditions via GetBlock’s API. With shared nodes for Algorand GetBlock clients share node infrastructure with other peers. Algorand dedicated nodes hosted by GetBlock are privately designed and tailored nodes.
Also now you have the ability to test our dedicated nodes including Algorand for only $50, go to the GetBlock account, choose the blockchain in the dedicated node section, and get a trial plan.
A great #web3 app starts by being built on a great blockchain... like @Algorand!July 19, 2022

GetBlock Releases a Blockchain Explorer for NEAR Protocol
Finally, GetBlock announced that its first out-of-a-box blockchain explorer is now available for the general public. NEAR Protocol is the first smart contracts platform to receive its explorer by GetBlock.
New explorer by GetBlock allows everyone to track the most important events and metrics of NEAR Protocol via a newbie-friendly dashboard.
GetBlock’s NEAR explorer demonstrates both basic (transaction details, block number, account balance) and advanced (validator statistics, staking details, and so on) data about the events in NEAR Protocol.
You can read more details in this article.
And we believe that there are more explorers by GetBlock to come.
GetBlock Receives Harmony’s Ecosystem Grant for Explorer Development
As per the statement shared on Harmony’s main forum, the representatives of the protocol chose GetBlock as a technical partner in creating a new-gen explorer for Harmony’s ONE and HRC20, HRC721, HRC1155 tokens.
Within the framework of its massive $300M Ecosystem Fund, Harmony blockchain decided to support GetBlock’s developers with a $50,000 grant. The grant is set to fuel full-stack development of an Etherscan-style explorer for Harmony. According to the approved roadmap, building Harmony’s explorer from scratch takes about five months.
