From feeless transactions to virtual currency support and a comprehensive suite of advanced developer tools, Tatum Virtual Accounts are a next-level layer-2 solution.

Layer-2 is the next level.

There’s been a lot of talk about layer-2 solutions to deal with lagging transaction times and scalability issues with Ethereum. From optimistic rollups to side chains, there is a vast ecosystem of options for working around Ethereum’s block times. However, there’s been so much emphasis on layer-2 solutions as scalability facilitators that its immense potential for other advanced blockchain functionality beyond just Ethereum is often overlooked.

Tatum Virtual Accounts are aeons ahead.

Tatum Virtual Accounts (aka Tatum Ledger) is a fully integrated suite of robust features ready to go on all supported blockchains within the platform. As with traditional layer-2 solutions, Virtual Accounts provide enhanced scalability…

Support for the XDC Network and Harmony, NFTs on Tron and Flow, multi-tokens on multiple blockchains, and a slew of new developer resources.

June was another busy month full of new integrations, features, and developer resources! We launched ERC-1155 multi-tokens multiple blockchains, expanded our offering of ready-to-deploy NFTs to Tron and Flow, and integrated Flow’s stablecoin.

We also launched support for the XDC Network and Harmony, and held part 2 of our “How to build NFT marketplaces” workshop. Read on to find out everything that went down at Tatum in June!

New developer resources

Part 1 of our “How to build NFT marketplaces” workshop was a big hit in May, and we moved things to the backend in part 2. …


Will Binance’s NFT marketplace shake things up in the NFT world?

Ethereum is the reigning champ in the NFT space

Non-fungible tokens or “NFTs” have dramatically risen in popularity over the last year, with market capitalization and popularity peaking in May 2021. While there are many blockchains that support NFTs, Ethereum has been the dominant blockchain of choice for creating and selling them. The established blockchain currently hosts by far the most marketplaces and boasts the most users of any other NFT-friendly ecosystem, but suffers from absurdly high gas fees and sluggish transaction times. …


Seamlessly integrate FUSD into your apps and marketplaces with simple API calls.

Earlier this month, Flow launched its own stable coin, FUSD. Issued by Prime Trust, the stablecoin is a 1:1 USD-backed token that will greatly simplify user onboarding to applications on the blockchain, opening the doors for users who don’t want to or can’t purchase FLOW for in-app transactions on the blockchain. By eliminating the need for users to keep track of fluctuating cryptocurrency conversion rates, FUSD creates a frictionless on-ramp for users to make payments in the Flow ecosystem.

Integrate FUSD in minutes

Stablecoins are an ideal solution for a wide range of applications, from cross-border remittance payments and fintech solutions to NFT marketplaces…

Harmony is a fast and open blockchain that places an emphasis on cross-chain compatibility. Now that it’s integrated into Tatum, developers can quickly and easily build apps on the innovative network with zero blockchain experience.

With 2-second transaction finality and 100 times lower fees than Ethereum, Harmony can keep up with the best of them. It features a highly secure random state sharding mechanism and offers cross-chain asset transfers from Ethereum, Binance, and other blockchains. …


Creating scalable, compliant, on-chain enterprise solutions has never been easier.

As far as hybrid blockchains go, the XDC Network is leading the pack in terms of security, speed, transaction fees, and scalability. Now, the blockchain has been integrated into Tatum, allowing you to build your applications on it without having to run any nodes or learn to code for the blockchain itself.

The XDC Network is built for global trade and finance applications. It uses a unique and exceedingly energy-efficient Delegated Proof of Stake Consensus network (XDPoS) that leverages the power of stakeholder approval voting to resolve consensus issues in a fair and democratic way. With near-zero gas fees and…


Instantly deploy ready-to-go NFTs on Tron’s fast and scalable blockchain with Tatum.

What’s Tron?

Tron is an ambitious blockchain that has undertaken the mission of “decentralizing the web.” Boasting over 40 million accounts and almost 2 billion transactions, Tron’s throughput and scalability have helped it acquire prime partnerships with Poloniex, Samsung, BitTorrent, Swisscom, and Opera.

What does that mean for developers?

With blazing-fast transaction times, zero transaction fees, and throughput of 10,000 transactions per second, Tron allows developers to build highly scalable dApps, Dexs, and NFT marketplaces. Their smart contracts are coded in Solidity and are similar to those on Ethereum, but use TRON VM instead of EVM. …


With Tatum’s ready-to-go NFT smart contracts on Flow, any developer can quickly and easily deploy NFTs on the in-demand blockchain with no previous experience.

Flow is an advanced blockchain with a completely different architecture than traditional blockchains like Ethereum and Bitcoin. It is optimized for Internet-scale applications and already runs NBA Top Shot, one of the most famous blockchain marketplaces and apps in existence.

Tatum is the first blockchain infrastructure provider and API to provide enhanced developer experience for Flow. By simplifying complex blockchain operations into powerful, single API endpoints, Tatum allows any developer to build apps on the in-demand blockchain, without any previous experience with any specific blockchain languages.

In addition to the already available API calls for Flow, we’ve just added one…
