Today, we are very excited to announce that the Honeycomb API Marketplace is now officially live and ready to connect smart contracts to the external API data they need to create meaningful real-world applications.
You can access the marketplace at honeycomb.market. In order to connect a smart contract to the APIs, a simple user registration is required, but non-registered users can still browse the APIs offered on the platform.
We are launching the service with 10 APIs, served through the Honeycomb Marketplace Chainlink node. These APIs are: Aviation Edge, World Weather Online, EOD Historical Data, GeoDB Cities, CivicFeed, Crowdscores, NeutrinoAPI, TheRundown, Twinword and Regulus.
Our CTO, Burak Benligiray, has created an introductory video which goes through how you can use the Honeycomb API marketplace to connect your smart contract to external API data. You can view the video below.
In the coming days and weeks, we will be adding more of our signed-up data providers onto the marketplace, which will allow smart contract developers to start testing and integrating these APIs into their externally connected smart contracts. In addition to listing more APIs, we have also started the process of onboarding our partner node operators, which will provide developers with the ability to query Honeycomb APIs through multiple independent Chainlink node operators. We will provide our community with more information about our partner node operators shortly.
Finally, we want to thank our community and everyone who has followed our progress during the past year. We look forward to serving the Chainlink ecosystem to the best of our ability, and are excited to see the smart contract economy grow with each new Chainlink node operator and API-enabled use-case.

We have also written a whitepaper, which details the role of Honeycomb as a Chainlink ecosystem hub and introduces our oracle certification service, Nodary.

Until next time,
