An Introduction & Tour of the Blockchain Infrastructure Cloud ⛓🛠🚀☁️ ➡️
Today the team at QuikNode is excited to debut the result of 2.5+ years of grind, hustle, vision, and passion for building infrastructure for blockchain & Web3.
Since summer of 2017, we've launched thousands of Ethereum nodes; experimented with a variety of use-cases and applications; contributed to dozens of hackathons around the world; met some amazing, talented people; and never gave up on building a tool for developers and businesses to run web3 dApps.
Early on, we understood that setting up & managing blockchain nodes was a difficult, time- and resource-consuming task. Creators had a hard time keeping their applications 'live' during critical moments, and an even more difficult time managing their nodes at-scale.
Having been in the IT and web-hosting industry since the late 90's, we applied our knowledge and expertise to create a product that abstracts the node layer, and "just works" – providing up-to-date (as well as historical) blockchain data to apps.
All this experience & drive to help #buidl the blockchain ecosystem has culminated to this latest version of QuikNode.io – and we're super-proud to debut it today!
v2 offers users both elastic, globally-balanced API service and Dedicated Node options for accessing Ethereum blockchain data.
Full and Archive sync data access is available, with JSON-RPC (over https://) and WebSocket (wss://) endpoints.
Available clients are Geth and Parity (API service runs on Parity).
Available networks are: ETH MainNet, Kovan, Ropsten and Rinkeby (Ethereum Classic [ETC] is available as a Dedicated Node only).
Bitcoin is available on MainNet and RegTest via Dedicated Node only (we are working on expanding this to our API service).
For more info, explore the brand-new QuikNode.io website!
Users can now create a free account and obtain a complimentary API endpoint to either MainNet, Ropsten, Kovan or Rinkeby networks on Ethereum blockchain. ☝️
Users can manage multiple nodes under their account, both API and Dedicated.
New to v2 are request analytics – call breakdown, response status, and over time.
Average response time metric is coming soon!
Users can configure a Dedicated Node (ETH, BTC, ETC) to their needs, and launch in 8 locations around the world.
New users have QuikStart guides in the UI, on how to utilize their endpoint.
Both API and Dedicated Nodes come with QuikNode Boost technology: an acceleration layer for maximum performance.
Boost is your secret weapon for an ultra-fast dApp. Boost accelerates your Ethereum node requests with an intelligent caching layer.
All QuikNode services are monitored for health and performance: 99.9% uptime for any single node, and 99.99% for the API service.
Developer? Already run a dApp? Business operator? There is a QuikNode for you.
Already have a primary web3Provider? Use QuikNode to make your application fault-tolerant by adding in a secondary, backup provider.
Join the network processing over 500 million requests per month.
