Blockchain

Overview

NTerminal continually collects and provides blockchain data and associated metadata to our clients. NTerminal runs blockchain nodes within NTerminal infrastructure. The system also pulls relevant information from multiple 3rd party blockchain explorers. Different metadata and blockchain content is available depending on the nature of the blockchain.

NTerminal ensures data accuracy and completeness by redundancy. There are often over 10 overlapping sources, in addition to our own nodes, that relay blockchain data into NTerminal systems. If one of the sources or resulting datasets starts to report inaccurate information, it will trigger an alert that checks the integrity of the data by cross-referencing data points from different datasets. This allows our clients to detect forks by monitoring for chain splits and orphaned blocks.
