# Changes in TzKT indexer and API

In addition to the Kathmandu support we did a significant improvement, worth mentioning. Now all id's, exposed in API responses, are deterministic, which means that even on different instances of the TzKT indexer, launched at different time and restored from different snapshots, the id's will be the same.

What was the problem with id's before v1.10.0? Well, they were non-deterministic (just incremental). This led to different values on different DB instances. For example, the same transaction might have "id": 1234 on api.tzkt.io, "id": 1233 on staging.api.tzkt.io, and "id": 1232 on your own instance of the API. So, it wasn't possible to use them in the long term, neither do completely consistent balance loading.

Now the id's exposed via API are deterministic, and you can safely store them and rely on them in the long term. Also it is now possible to do load balancing without worrying about data consistency, which is awesome!

As a drawback, id's became longer (int64, instead of int32, as before v1.10.0).
