Let us introduce Node as a Service - our new product that provides easy and secure access to blockchain nodes for multiple protocols and networks. 

Node as a Service or NaaS is the latest addition to our blockchain infrastructure suite that already includes a collection of Enhanced & Unified REST APIs, Webhooks, Blockchain tools for syncing HD wallets and broadcasting transactions, Wallet as a Service and Blockchain automations.

With Node as a Service you can make JSON-RPC requests directly to blockchain nodes using the official supported methods. JSON-RPCs are ideal for large scale complex operations that have a critical need for high performance. This method provides a simplistic approach while at the same time giving the freedom to work over different transmission channels and batch multiple requests in one process.  Learn more about JSON-RPC in this guide.

How Do Blockchain Node Providers Work?

Every business operating with cryptocurrencies or running blockchain-based applications needs a connection to blockchain nodes. But setting up and maintaining your own node requires a lot of resources, heavy costs, huge development power and technical expertise in managing them. In addition to that, nodes have to be always synced to the latest block, regularly updated and 24/7 monitored for potential issues. All of this (and more) makes running your own nodes really hard for most businesses.

As a node service provider we offer you an alternative solution by allowing access to infrastructure and tools to always stay connected to the blockchain. We also take care of any updates and forks, making sure your apps are running smoothly and data synchronization is correct.

Shared and Dedicated Nodes at Your Service

With Crypto APIs Node as a Service you can offload the development time and costs needed to setup and manage your own nodes. Our robust node services provide the security, scalability and flexibility any business needs. 

- We offer our customers the options to choose from three types of services - shared, dedicated and on-premise nodes

- We run a multi-geo node infrastructure platform using leading cloud providers across the globe to ensure quick response time. 

- Our carefully engineered two-layered Smart Load Balancer takes care of requests and routes to the latest synced node, making sure real-time data accuracy.

- We take care of monitoring and maintenance of both shared and dedicated nodes, avoiding any downtime. We also update your nodes in advance keeping disruption to service to absolute zero.

Shared Nodes

Shared nodes are the perfect option for any business looking for a lighter option. We currently provide access to shared Bitcoin and Ethereum nodes with JSON-RPC methods. You can quickly join a shared account by registering and creating an account with us. You can start making requests right away by creating an API key and using your unique identifier and the respective node endpoint, available in our documentation.

Dedicated Nodes

If you’re looking to perform more advanced operations and need a private blockchain node then our Dedicated nodes offering is the perfect choice for you. A dedicated node is exclusively yours and you can use it entirely without any restrictions to supported methods and requests.

In our Nodes Marketplace we offer dedicated nodes for multiple blockchains including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Bitcoin Cash, XRP Ledger, Litecoin, Dogecoin, BNB Smart Chain, Zilliqa, Dash, Zcash, Polygon, TRON, Solana, Cosmos, Near, Stellar, Tezos and more.

In order to access a dedicated node, you need to create an account, select the preferred node in the Node Marketplace and fill up your requirements using the access form. We will prepare the best solution for you and you can start building on your node. 

Self-managed Nodes

If you prefer to keep everything on your end, we can assist you with the deployment and maintenance of your own on-premise node. Our technical team will help you with the setup and make sure your node is running without any downtime. Simply, fill out the request form for a self-managed node and we will get back to you.
