Month in Review: April 2022
Wrapping up another productive month, let’s take a look back at what Unmarshal has accomplished.
Founder Node Applications Open
At the beginning of April, we opened applications for hosting the Unmarshal founder nodes. As a pilot, there will be 25 nodes in total, and anyone can host a founder node by staking a minimum of 25,000 $MARSH. There is an attractive APY of 75% for a 3-month period.

First Office Hours Webinar: Blockchain Analytics Dashboards
In association with our long time partners Zeroswap, we hosted our first ever Office Hours Webinar. With panelists Manohar, Shivakumar, & Arham (Unmarshal), and Aayushi (Zeroswap), the topic of discussion was how Analytics plays an important role in DeFi.
Watch the full webinar to understand how Unmarshal’s Analytics Dashboard is helping protocols like Zeroswap in visualizing and comprehending application data, which in turn helps in better decision making.
Unmarshal Staking Continues
Unmarshal native staking continued with a new staking program launched on 10th April. With a huge reward pool of 500,000 $MARSH, it will run for 90 days and a lock-in period of 7 days.

1. Unmarshal — Plugin
GoPlugin is a decentralized oracle operating on the XDC chain. Unmarshal entered into a strategic partnership with Plugin in the development of an affiliated platform for dApps on XDC to access synchronised data from both on and off chains.
The collaboration between Plugin and Unmarshal will provide a unified platform for smart contracts to retrieve granular and authentic data from XDC Chain via the Plugin API.

2. Unmarshal — Darkblock
Darkblock is a blockchain-based unlocked add-on for an NFT, with the NFT serving as the key or preview. Darkblocks can be created using the web app or the API programmatically.
Unmarshal’s APIs will assist Darkblock to obtain NFT metadata from multi-chains. Darkblock will soon be able to provide support for Polygon Chain, with the data layer provided by Unmarshal.

Feature Addition: NFT Creator Details
A new feature is now available in our core APIs. If you are building an NFT application and want to know the creator of a particular NFT collection, you can now use Unmarshal’s API endpoints to query minter details.
This feature is available for the endpoints “NFT Asset Details” and “NFT Details by Token ID” and is currently supported for Ethereum, BNB, Polygon, and Avalanche chains.

Querying Support for Testnets
Testnets can be looked at as a pre-production environment with the same underlying software, technology, and functionality as their corresponding mainnet. Dapp developers use testnets for smart contact functionality testing.
We’ve now added APIs to query data from testnets to assist developers to build at a faster pace.
