Tatum supports more than 40 blockchain protocols and many digital assets. Every blockchain works differently, each with its own features and functionalities. Learning to code natively for a single blockchain is difficult, and learning multiple blockchain protocols is almost impossible.

This is where Tatum comes in.

Tatum allows developers to utilize direct blockchain API calls almost identical to the native JSON RPC of each blockchain. API calls are unified across all supported blockchains, meaning you can integrate multiple blockchains or switch between them just as easily as you would integrate a single blockchain.

There are a lot of features that a standard enterprise-grade application should have. A few examples are:

  • Webhook notifications for incoming transactions

  • Accounting standards

  • Automatic synchronization of balances to blockchain addresses

All of the above features could be implemented using native blockchain API calls, but it would take a long time and potentially introduce many bugs and mistakes. This is why we have created virtual accounts.

Virtual accounts can be connected to any supported blockchain, or even function independently of any blockchain, and feature a diverse suite of advanced built-in features that allow developers to build enterprise-grade apps in no time.
