Since we announced the Hookpad project, dozens of projects reached out to let us know that this would save them countless hours of development.
Many subscribed for the private BETA, and today we’re releasing an open BETA.
Hookpad is a platform that supplies ready-to-consume data directly from the blockchain. How does it work? Simple: It hooks to any EVM-compatible blockchain, and lets you listen and filter the events you need. Once that is covered, it parses those events to meet your requirements and then delivers through webhooks and API.
It’s a plug and play solution, so it takes about 2 minutes to fully set it up! Check out this tutorial to learn more.
What is Hookpad? Hookpad is a plug & play platform that allows dapp developers to pull ready to process data from a blockchain.
Who is Hookpad for? Hookpad is great for any dev who needs to bootstrap a project or idea, hackathons, large projects (dapp or dappn’t), and basically anything that needs to pull a large amount of data of a blockchain in real time.
Now, how do I Hookpad?
Getting started on Hookpad is a simple and straightforward process that can be narrowed down to just 4 steps.

Welcome, dapp developer! Let’s travel in time for a bit. If you started developing the blockchain event processor for your dapp 2 months ago, you’d be just getting to a decent product by now, (you’d still probably be missing some of the events) — blockchain is not for everybody, querying data from it is a pain in the neck!
As Jesus Rodriguez wrote in his Hackernoon article:
“Data access has played a prominent role in any technology trend in the history of software. Data access technologies such as databases, search engines or query APIs are so ubiquitous that we barely think about them when architecting software solutions. As Web 3.0, decentralized applications powered by blockchain technologies evolve, infrastructure blocks such as data access will become more relevant. …
It is said that the gaming industry is always pushing technology forward, that games drive innovation. Through the years, hardware had to get better and better to run more complex and heavier games; software had to improve drastically to allow the most realistic physics and game mechanics, and everything in between had to evolve too. This evolution helped give rise to products like Hookpad.
