We're pleased to announce that we have unified our website and officially rolled out Center and the Center API.
We never intended to have two separate websites – when we started building Center.app, we had no idea that builders would reach out to ask us which API we were using. That gave rise to Center.dev, where we have been providing our API to builders for over a year.
To simplify things for our users, Center.app is now a one stop shop – you can find Center, our NFT discovery tool, on the homepage, or go to Center.app/API for the Center API that powers it (formerly Center.dev).
Center: Your NFT Search and Discovery Hub
Center.app is your go-to destination for NFT search and discovery. Whether you're a collector, investor, or just curious about the NFT space, Center.app has you covered. Our intuitive and user-friendly interface makes it easy for you to explore and discover NFTs from various marketplaces and collections in one place.
Center.app also provides detailed NFT information, including metadata, ownership history, and transaction history, so you can make informed decisions when buying or selling NFTs.
Want to incorporate this data into your own applications? Simply go to the Center API to use the same APIs that power Center.app.
Center API: Your Gateway to Building with NFTs
If you're a builder looking to leverage the power of NFTs in your applications, the Center API is your gateway to NFT building. Formerly known as Center.dev, the Center API provides developers with seamless and reliable API access to NFT data, making it easy to integrate NFT functionality into your applications.
With the Center API, you can access NFT metadata, ownership information, transaction history, media rendering, search, orderbook data and more, from over 15 blockchains. Interested in learning more? We've added an API Directory that provides a detailed overview, code examples and FAQs for each endpoint. You can also check out our official documentation.
No matter what you're building, the Center API simplifies the complex process of working with NFT data, allowing you to focus on building a great user experience.
Building an NFT-related application may seem daunting, but our APIs can help abstract away complex infrastructure details so you can focus on what matters to your users.
We already support a wide variety of applications, including NFT marketplaces, wallets, data intelligence tools and portfolio trackers.

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.
