Interface is the mobile companion for your Ethereum journey. The app allows users to follow wallets and view activity in a single feed, import social graphs and find new connections, and discover new opportunities happening on-chain. Founded by the team at Interface Labs, this communal app fuels their mission of democratizing Web3 access.
As Interface brought their crowdfunded social platform to life, they prioritized an elevated and seamless customer experience. To make this a reality, they would have to provide users with accurate, reliable, and instant access to both their own wallets and the wallets on their communal activity feeds.
According to Nikita Kudryavstev, Co-Founder of Interface Labs, the team’s ability to index, decode, and process chain data in-house is central to their value prop and day-to-day business. However, processing and storing raw content, such as images, audio, and videos, proved to be more challenging and required niche expertise. So, they set out to find an API provider who could assist with:
The Interface team tested out comparable API solutions for media needs, but found these ultimately were not scalable in back-end maintenance. Eventually, their search led them to SimpleHash.
SimpleHash provided the multi-chain coverage and sophisticated media support that Interface needed from day one. Below, Nikita highlights three of our solution’s game-changing benefits:
SimpleHash’s API seamlessly indexes various media formats— from podcasts to 3D images— in the Interface app, ensuring minimal delay for users. Plus, their team looks forward to expanding usage of SimpleHash in the near future to support even more complex holdings.
In Nikita’s words, SimpleHash maintains an “extremely tight feedback loop.” For example, he once alerted our team about a technical snag, so we troubleshot and resolved the issue within 30 minutes. That level of attention and responsiveness has led to two critical benefits:
SimpleHash designs our pricing model for the utmost convenience of our customers — it’s intuitive and rarely requires calculations. Take it from the Interface team: According to Nikita, their plan impressively covers all data infrastructure needs at a reasonable price point for the industry.
“If something doesn't work, we ping the SimpleHash team, and they fix everything immediately. It’s such a fast turnaround. It’s nice to see them genuinely value user feedback and communicate straightaway.”
Before SimpleHash, Interface had plans to pause usual engineering efforts for at least a month to develop media indexing infrastructure. Now, after partnering with SimpleHash, Interface can concentrate on refining their core product instead of grappling with SRM and NFT data infrastructure.
Here are some impressive results of the partnership so far:
Beyond the numbers, Nikita emphasizes the peace of mind that SimpleHash has brought to his team. Looking forward, our API slots conveniently into Interface’s growth roadmap. They already have plans to launch multiple features that will delight their user base — and each one is seamlessly enabled by SimpleHash.
