[Press Release – San Francisco, CA, 27th April, 2021]
Public Mint and Unmarshal have formed a strategic partnership that would see the full integration of the Public Mint blockchain on Unmarshal’s blockchain data platform, allowing seamless access to data for developers building applications that interface with Public Mint.
Public Mint is the first fiat-native blockchain platform, focused on providing users with a seamless experience with blockchain-based payments while abstracting away many of the complexities involved. Public Mint is based on the Hyperledger Besu platform, offering full support for the Ethereum Virtual Machine while providing a highly scalable blockchain environment capable of supporting a vibrant financial ecosystem.
While the Public Mint blockchain is based on previous technology, the default basic tools and APIs are insufficient to easily interface with the blockchain and instantly get a detailed and historical view into its activity. The partnership with Unmarshal helps plug that gap, enabling an advanced set of APIs that can be easily integrated by any developer building an app that interfaces with Public Mint. The solution is ideal for blockchain explorers, exchanges, checkout providers and other businesses that need to read blockchain data quickly, efficiently and with minimum development time.
Unmarshal supports a number of data streams, including a Notification API, Wallet Balance API, and a Transaction API that provides decoded transaction details delivered in JSON format. The tools streamline the blockchain integration process to just a few lines of code, relieving development teams from building their own node and blockchain API infrastructure.
“The integration with Unmarshal allows developers to quickly deploy apps using the fiat-native Public Mint blockchain,” said Jorge Pereira, CTO and Founder of Public Mint. “By doing the necessary work just once, we enable other developers to quickly query the Public Mint blockchain for all the relevant data, allowing them to focus on their own application instead of building the backend from scratch.”
“Public Mint is a remarkable and innovative project bridging fiat and crypto to foster blockchain adoption,” said Manohar Kolagondanahalli, CEO & Founder of Unmarshal. “We’re delighted to work with Public Mint’s team to help decentralized applications on the native chain to scale in no time.”
Public Mint is a fiat-native blockchain ecosystem, bridging the world of cryptocurrencies to the average user who is unfamiliar with wallets and exchanges. By abstracting the complexities of using blockchain and directly integrating with fiat payment rails, Public Mint offers the flexibility, speed and high yields of the cryptocurrency world to all fintech users. Core to the Public Mint platform is the EARN program, a USD-centric yield strategy combining sources from CeFi and DeFi into a single interface accessible both to crypto newbies and veteran users, who can commit their funds through Public Mint’s Ethereum bridge.
