What is ThirdFi?

ThirdFi is a web3 infrastructure protocol built to empower decentralized finance (DeFi) with an emphasis on interoperability and middleware solutions with developer-friendly API implementations. You can read more about us in this article.

What is ThirdFi's main goal and vision?

At ThirdFi, our vision is to provide a scalable and interoperable interface between different infrastructure protocols for DeFi. Our solution is a web3 finance middleware with API solutions, a multi-chain relayer, and cross-chain infrastructure.
This infrastructure will empower the open-source developer movement and accelerate the adoption of DeFi, onboarding the next billion people to the world of decentralized finance.

How does ThirdFi work?

ThirdFi provides a scalable and interoperable interface between different infrastructure protocols for DeFi with our API solutions. ThirdFi API works as a middleware between any dapp you are building and various multi-chain DeFi protocols. Once you connect ThirdFi API to your app, your app has direct access to DEXes, on-chain liquidity pools, fiat-to-crypto payment gateways, and borrowing & lending protocols on DeFi real-time.

What is an API Key?

An API key (Application Programming Key) is used to authenticate yourself to an API. It was used along with a secret key to generate signatures and get authenticated by our ThirdFi backend so that you can access our ThirdFi private API.

How to generate an API Key?

On the Developer section, accessible from the left panel, you can generate new API keys or revoke the previous ones (for example, if they were leaked).

What is a Webhook?

A webhook is used to connect two different applications. Received all event logs and transaction details from ThirdFi and pass to another application (developer application).

What is a Sandbox?

A sandbox is a testing environment for developers to test the integration on testnet. So, developers do not spend any funds or assets during their development. Developers can use the sandbox environment during development for testing our ThirdFi API, which doesn't affect your production data or interact with the mainnet smart contracts.

What can I do with the ThirdFi API?

Our ThirdFi API allows developers to use our API to interact with blockchain networks. Developers can get our API data connected with developer applications.
Some major functions you can use ThirdFi API for are:

What is an on-ramp payment (Fiat-to-crypto)?

An on-ramp payment (Fiat-to-crypto) is a service that allows you to convert fiat money into cryptocurrencies. E.g., Use your fiat money(USD) converted to cryptocurrencies(BTC).

Our ThirdFi application supports non-custodial/self-custody transactions with Metamask and WalletConnect integration.

Does ThirdFi have access to user assets?

Does the user need to pay additional fees for the transaction?
