Web3 developers can now access the suite of scaling solutions provided by Arbitrum, including Arbitrum One and Arbitrum Nova, through the reliable and powerful infrastructure of Blast API.

Attention all Web3 enthusiasts! We have some exciting news for you. Blast, the multichain API infrastructure platform, has now integrated Arbitrum and Arbitrum Nova within its platform. This means that developers can now access Arbitrum’s suite of scaling solutions using Blast’s power and reliability.

Arbitrum is a set of Ethereum Layer 2 scaling technologies developed with the Arbitrum Nitro tech stack. It comprises two main components: Arbitrum One and Arbitrum Nova. The aim of Arbitrum is to address the scalability and anonymity constraints that exist in the Ethereum network, making it easier for developers to build decentralized applications.

Arbitrum One, the first Arbitrum Rollup Chain deployed on the Ethereum mainnet, is now available on Blast. It is completely trustless and inherits Ethereum’s base-layer security guarantees without adding new trust assumptions. This makes it an excellent option for decentralized banking and other applications requiring L1-level trustlessness.

Blast also supports Arbitrum Nova, which uses the AnyTrust Protocol. The Arbitrum AnyTrust Protocol replaces Ethereum’s Trustless data availability method with an extra trust assumption, which lowers transaction fees while managing data availability with a permissioned group of parties. With its decreased costs and social component, Arbitrum Nova can be used for Web3 social and gaming use-cases, bringing forth the next generation of gamers.

Blast also offers Arbitrum and Arbitrum Nova public APIs, which can be found here:

Arbitrum Nova: https://blastapi.io/public-api/arbitrum-nova

Blast’s API list of available networks is continuously expanding, aiming to provide a seamless Web3 development experience for developers. By introducing Arbitrum and Arbitrum Nova on its platform, Blast is enabling developers to benefit from the suite’s faster speeds at a significantly lower cost, while enjoying the stability and performance of one of the best infrastructure providers on the market.

To generate a dedicated Arbitrum API in Blast, users can simply visit blastapi.io and follow a few simple steps. Blast also offers Arbitrum and Arbitrum Nova public APIs, which can be found on its website. Developers can also contact Blast’s engineering team for support on integrating the APIs into their dApps.

Blast’s proprietary solution for proxying and routing user requests allows it to achieve best-in-industry response times and top-notch reliability. Moreover, the platform features stable-coin crypto payments and allows users to simply connect with their Metamask wallets to create an account and obtain their custom API endpoints in just a couple of clicks. Public APIs are also available in Blast for all supported networks, making it even easier for developers to access the tools they need to build their dApps.

In conclusion, Blast’s integration of Arbitrum and Arbitrum Nova within its platform is a significant development for the Web3 space. By providing developers with easy access to Arbitrum’s suite of scaling solutions, Blast is making it easier for developers to build decentralized applications that can scale efficiently and effectively. We look forward to seeing the innovative solutions that will emerge as a result of this integration.
