Launched in August 2019, Honeycomb API Marketplace is live and ready to connect smart contracts to the external API data they need to create meaningful real-world applications. The marketplace has now officially listed Data Sports Group (DSG) Sports API.
DSG provides a premium sports catalogue offering for smart contract developers looking for an authentic and reliable data source. The API can be used to obtain live scores & in-game match timelines, match statistics, head to head and team & player information from their wide catalogue of sports.
The initial launch will see Soccer, Basketball & Tennis content made available through the Honeycomb marketplace. These APIs will be made available to Chainlink-enabled smart contract creators via per-call pricing. This removes the need to purchase annual API keys and developers can expect, within minutes, to connect their smart contract to the API.
