The Living Assets platform offers an API for the entire ecosystem. Depending on the application, different parts of the API will be required. The Living Assets API is accessed via GraphQL.

To simplify the entry points, here's one way to separate the API methods:

  • Information queries, open to everyone. These queries do not require any signature. Typically used to inquire about the assets of a given owner, the current properties of an NFT, etc.

  • Creation & Evolution queries, which require Universe Owners signature. Used to mint & evolve NFTs at mass scale.

  • Trading queries, which require asset owner signatures and, in some cases, backend auth tokens.

Using GraphQL

The Living Assets API is accessed via GraphQL. We recommend using existing great UI/UX apps such as GraphQL Playground or Apollo's Studio to create test queries and view the entire API documentation.
