Blocknative launches new Ethereum transaction notifications API
Blocknative, a blockchain technology development company, today announced that “after months of internal development and testing” they are finally introducing its new Notify API for Ethereum wallet providers and Dapp development teams.
Notify is a lightweight, back-end API that delivers real-time transaction state changes for every relevant wallet address, for full-cycle transaction monitoring.
Notify integrates directly with the Ethereum mempool and features:
- Monitoring of specific wallet addresses, smart contract addresses, and transaction hashes.
- Detection for transfers of ETH, ERC-20, and ERC-721 assets.
- Alerts for users of outbound and inbound transactions in real-time.
- Support for increasingly complex transaction types — including those involving smart-contract wallets, relay networks, state channels, payment channels, and more.
The Notify API performes all of these actions in real-time, on a 24/7 basis.
How It Works
The new Blocknative Notify API is powered by a distributed network of Ethereum full nodes. Each of these nodes runs custom mempool monitoring extensions. The monitors constantly watch for ‘transactions of interest’ and then emit detailed event streams that define every state change, including:
- New pending transaction detected.
- New queued transaction detected.
- Queued transaction becomes pending.
- Pending transaction canceled.
- Pending transaction sped up.
- Pending transaction dropped.
- Pending transaction failed.
- Dropped transaction retransmitted.
- Pending transaction confirmed.
- And more.
“Whenever a value is being exchanged, users expect accurate and timely transaction notifications. In cases where a transaction goes sideways (stalled, stuck, dropped, or failed) – it is imperative to provide real-time, actionable alerts. Until now, wallet providers have been challenged to provide these capabilities given the headaches of operating Ethereum node networks. That’s why we built our Notify API: we deal with these headaches so your team, and your users, don’t have to.”

Thailand’s government is working on a plan to introduce agro blockchain tracking, according to the Trade Policy and Strategy and Office (TPOS). The main goal behind this project is to improve the traceability of agricultural products and to monitor the quality of the products that are being exported from the country. Agro blockchain tracking The project is going to be introduced gradually, starting with farmers and producers in the Surin province. According to Pimchanok Vonkorpon, Director General of TPOS, the government has already talked to the majority of farmers in the region. Not only that, but more than five thousand agricultural growers have also declared they will participate in the test phase of the project. Agro blockchain tracking is going to bring an essential improvement to the way the whole niche is functioning at the moment. Thailand is one of the largest rice exporters globally, which means that better quality control and monitoring capabilities will improve the end product for a large percentage of customers worldwide. According to Ms. Pimchanok Vonkorpon, agro blockchain tracking will become operational as soon as…Nov 26, 2019
A Grin (GRIN) developer funded by the Litecoin Foundation has suggested a solution for fixing the “Achilles heel of Mimblewimble privacy.” David Burkett, a developer at Mimblewimble’s (MW) privacy-centric coin Grin, started a thread on monthly updates detailing progress on both Grin’s development and the integration of MW’s privacy-focused technology into Litecoin (LTC). The developer announced the news on Twitter on Dec. 1: “I’ll be posting monthly status updates detailing progress on the LTC MW EB (YAY acronyms). This is geared toward those interested in LTC development, but will also talk a lot about Grin++ changes, so it may be interesting to Grinners as well.” Burkett challenges the “Achilles heel of Mimblewimble privacy” In terms of Grin’s progress, the developer has purportedly performed the first-ever pre-broadcast MW CoinJoin that would allegedly make transactions more private by disabling broadcasting before transactions joined others in the CoinJoin block. Burkett noted that this issue is one of the most critical problems associated with MW’s privacy. He wrote: “The Achilles heel of mimblewimble privacy though, has always been that transactions are broadcast before they’ve…Dec 3, 2019

Crypto derivatives exchange FTX recently launched “TRUMP,” a new futures trading product that lets users bet on President Trump’s re-election in 2020. TRUMP “is a futures contract that expires to $1 if Trump wins the 2020 presidential general election and $0 otherwise,” an FTX representative told Cointelegraph. “So far most of the volume has traded on the offer, implying that traders think Trump is likely to win re-election.” Derivatives products seem complex at first Crypto derivatives trading has expanded significantly over the past several years, with exchanges such as BitMEX and OKEx posting significant trading volume for their Bitcoin futures trading products. Mainstream finance even jumped on the bandwagon with the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s Bitcoin futures trading launch in 2017, and its later options trading launch in 2020. These derivative products aren’t cryptocurrencies, however. Participants cannot send futures, options or other derivatives to other exchanges. These products trade contracts that are native to the exchanges hosting them. The same goes for FTX’s TRUMP product. TRUMP futures trading is quite simple Essentially, FTX’s TRUMP allows participants to bet on the likelihood…Feb 7, 2020
Atlus, creators of the Persona series, has been asked for a Switch port of their latest Persona game numerous times. Despite this, Atlus’ communications manager says that fans’ voices must continue to be heard if the port is going to happen. Apparently, Atlus just doesn’t know what’s good for them as a company anymore. Recently it came out that Atlus, creators of Persona 5, knows how much fans want a Switch port. IGN spoke to Ari Advincula, Atlus’ communications manager, and asked her if fans should give up on the idea. She said she was a strong believer in “never giving up hope” and that Atlus knows that fans want a port. But it is apparently up to fans to keep telling Atlus that a port is wanted. Advincula is probably not the person who decides what gets ported and what doesn’t, she’s a communications manager. But if Atlus knows how much fans want a port, then they should bloody well make one then. I’m not the only person who feels this way either. Many folks on Twitter think that Atlus…Feb 18, 2020
2019 has been a rough year for the crypto markets, with Bitcoin’s price action and the overall industry development gravely disappointing investors. BTC is poised to end the year up significantly from where it ended last year, but it does remain in a precarious position. It is also important to note that one analyst is claiming that there is currently a key price level that Bitcoin must end the year above if it is to incur any further gains, and it does appear that BTC is likely to end 2019 on a bearish note. The End of the Year is Historically a Volatile Time for Bitcoin Currently, Bitcoin is trading up marginally at its current price of $7,350, and it has incurred significantly bearish momentum over the past few weeks after retracing all of the gains that were incurred in late-October when it surged to highs of $10,600. Although there is still a month left in 2019, the present lack of any bullish momentum likely signals that BTC will end the year on a slightly bearish note. There is still…Dec 4, 2019
Jeff Bezos appears to be interested in purchasing an NFL team should one come up for sale. The Seahawks are likely to come on the market, making for a great fit with Bezos’ strong ties to Seattle. Bezos’ leadership style and strong presence in Seattle could be a boon for the team in the coming decade. Rumors are flying that Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos wants to buy an NFL team. During the Super Bowl last February, Bezos was seen enjoying the view from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s suite. He’s also been spotted spending time with other team owners, which has further spurred on speculation. As the richest man in the world, Bezos could afford to pay cash for any team in the league but unfortunately none of them are currently up for sale. Speculation linking Bezos to the Seahawks is alive and well. | Source: Twitter However, many expect the Seattle Seahawks to eventually go up for sale after the team’s owner Paul Allen died last year. There’s also a chance that the Denver Broncos could come on…Nov 13, 2019

Don’t you hate it when a telemarketer interrupts your day with a call that’s either an outright scam or some other BS you couldn’t care less about? Instead of getting annoyed with the useless call, you can take it as an opportunity to have some fun and provide the bugger with a taste of his own medicine. After reading this article you will have plenty of ammo for the next scammer that tries to bother you. Here are my three favorite ways to annoy a telemarketer: #3 Answer the phone and immediately mute it When you answer the call don’t say anything and instead mute yourself. While this isn’t quite a fun way, it’s the easiest way to get placed on a “dead phone” list and increase the chances of avoiding future calls. A dead phone list is a list of phone numbers that are “disconnected.” Telemarketers have a list of sorts which helps them avoid calling unresponsive lines. #2 Try to waste as much time as possible For telemarketers and scammers alike, time is money. So if you waste…Nov 21, 2019
