An NFT Analytics Platform Has Been Acquired By dApp Developer QuickNode
Icy Tools, an NFT analytics platform, has been acquired by QuickNode, a blockchain development platform. The Miami-based company, which was created in 2017, made its first acquisition with the purchase of Icy Tools.
This acquisition is still being kept under wraps for now, however, it is rumored that Icy Tools will retain its platform capabilities and its unique GraphQL API will be merged into QuickNode. You can use this service to track and analyze trending NFTs (such as those on the Solana and Ethereum chains) and get access to real-time data on price and volume as well as historical charts and transaction histories from QuickNode.
As a result of the $35 million in Series A fundraising last year (which includes participation from 776, the investment firm founded by Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian), QuickNode hopes to reach the peak of NFT-integrated dApp development with Icy Tool’s expertise.
One thing that QuickNode COO Jackie De La Rosa mentioned in her remarks on the integration was that the company was “excited” about the possibilities that the deal would bring to its consumers. QuickNode is ideally suited for this because NFT integrations require sophisticated blockchain infrastructure to be in place in the background.
