NFTs are all about discovery. Many applications rely on users being able to easily find the collections they love, as well as discover new collections they may not be familiar with yet.

Unfortunately, building great search experiences can be a difficult, time-consuming and frustrating task.

Do you wish you could just wave a magic wand and drop a search bar in your application? With Center, we want it to feel that easy.

Our new NFT Collection Search endpoint, built on our V2 infra, provides everything you need to create powerful search experiences for your users – collection details, a preview image, market stats and more. Just provide the search query and we will do the rest.

What is an NFT API?

Building NFT-related applications from scratch is complicated. It might require indexing multiple chains, ingesting vast quantities of data, and meticulously building low-level infrastructure to ensure all of the data is processed correctly. This could take engineers months to get right before they even start building an application.

Our APIs allow builders to abstract away this complexity and focus on building useful products for end users right away— we take care of the infrastructure and low-level technical details. With just a few lines of code, builders can use our APIs for a range of use cases including NFT rendering, search and data retrieval.
