Oku has launched its API for applications built on Uniswap v3. Backed by the Uniswap Foundation, the API is designed to democratize access to real-time and historic Uniswap v3 market data, according to Oku’s announcement:
“Since we represent pool tick state in a format equivalent to the on-chain layout, switching to using Oku’s API should be as easy as replacing your pre-existing method.”
Oku’s API provides a simplified, user-friendly interface for developers and is powered by JSON-RPC. Unlike other crypto data interfaces, Oku’s API does not require a signup form or auth key, facilitating ease of integration for developers.
The API serves as the backbone of Oku’s trading interface, boasting near-instant response times, tailored data retrieval methods and support for multiple high-volume blockchains. With this launch, Oku promises to deliver more advanced search options and seamless retrieval of specialized information, empowering developers to customize their strategies and discover unique insights.
Furthermore, the API can interpret DEX liquidity and price data, mimicking traditional finance formats and providing a familiar user interface for interacting with Uniswap v3 market data.

In addition to the data retrieval capabilities, Oku’s API also supports several applications, such as Miner Extractable Value (MEV) Searching and Position Creation and Tracking Interface. These applications use Oku’s API for efficient route solving and pre-indexing of all Uniswap v3 positions in a readable format, respectively. Oku’s Trade API is another application, providing real-time updates on fund flows through Uniswap v3, allowing for identification of trade patterns and sudden liquidity shifts.
Lastly, the Oku API plays a pivotal role in UniChat, a virtual assistant that uses Oku’s developer documentation to pre-train an instance of ChatGPT. It said:
“I can fetch real-time data and perform calculations with accuracy, ensuring that the information I provide is up-to-date and reliable. This integration allows me to seamlessly connect with Uniswap v3 and offer valuable insights to users, enabling them to make informed decisions in the DeFi space.”
