A look back at QuikNode's accolades & accomplishments in 2020.
QuikNode is a Web3 developer platform used by teams big & small to build and scale blockchain applications. Access Ethereum, Bitcoin, and xDai networks in seconds, and get tools to ship the best version of your dApp faster. Read more on how to use QuikNode to #buidl the dApp of your dreams!
Nodes & related infrastructure are critical for developing and operating in the Web3 space. It can be confusing to decide on the best provider based on price for what you get. We compare 3 popular providers, show overage costs, and lay out some real world comparison scenarios.
One of the most critical factors of choosing any app and continuing to use it, is its speed. When users can use an app to work quicker and achieve their goal, they are going to hang, but it’s a fact that when an app lags, they’re going to look to competitors for an alternative.
As providers of Ethereum node infrastructure, we often see new users struggle with choosing a library, connecting to a node, and understanding which call is needed to accomplish their goals. So we created an OSS tool to help!
"I can confirm that switching to QuikNode sped up our back end API blockchain polling near to 100x. This is not a ballpark figure, the speed increase was measured for long-running ethereum cron jobs and the results were exponentially better in every case."
"I logged on to Quiknode, entered my credit card details and changed the URL in our kubernetes config map and everything worked. Out of the box. No further configuration. No custom code."
With security, transparency and performance being central to the Fides-Exchange mission from the beginning, they knew that they needed powerful, cost-effective infrastructure to operate.
In this article, we will explore Uniswap and one of its most innovative features: flash swaps!
xDai is the ideal cryptocurrency for everyday payments and transactions. User-friendly tools make xDai easily adoptable for crypto and non-crypto users alike!
Webhooks are the best way for server-side apps to send automated messages or information to other server-side apps. So how do you accomplish this in the Web3 world where your dApp is based on Ethereum blockchain?
Stefan van As is the author of Delphereum which is a Delphi interface to the Ethereum blockchain that allows for development of native dApps. Through this interface, he developed the lean, airtight DeFi desktop app offering the highest possible yield on stablecoin savings: Bankless.
Building, integrating and working among different DeFi protocols is still a headache for many developers. DSA-SDK simplifies cross-protocol interactions using smart-contracts and Spells. In this guide we will swap ETH to DAI using Kyber Protocol and DSA Spells.
Integrating with different Ethereum protocols and performing common tasks is cumbersome. Today we will explore DeFi-SDK and how it simplifies working with several DeFi protocols in parallel.
Developing decentralized applications (dApps) can be a rigorous, time heavy and stressful process. Real-time changes and fixes post-release, which are normally possible in traditional apps, are not (easily) possible in dApps.
Time is a universal rule that everyone lives by. The time it takes for a resource to load — dictates whether you make the conversion or not. Speed matters.
BOTTOM LINE: If devs are working on the time hemorrhage associated with node infrastructure and syncing to the Ethereum blockchain, they are not actually doing what they are paid to do: developing the app.
What if you want to know the previous state of the entire Ethereum ecosystem and not just the current block? What do you use? How can this be achieved?
