Frequently askEd questions
Blockchain nodes are computers that keep a blockchain network running. They store and share the blockchain's information, making sure it's accurate and secure. Each node has a copy of all blockchain transactions. They check and pass on transaction information, helping to keep the blockchain transparent and safe.
Blockchain nodes are crucial for sending transactions because they process and verify each transaction. When you send a transaction, nodes check it for accuracy and then share it with the blockchain network. This process ensures that transactions are legitimate and get added to the blockchain correctly. Without nodes, there would be no way to confirm transactions and maintain the blockchain's security and reliability.
Shared RPC API endpoints are like a public service used by many clients simultaneously. They are cost-effective and sufficient for most users, but can have limited resources due to shared access. On the other hand, dedicated RPC API endpoints are like having a private service. They are exclusively for one client, offering better performance, stability, and customization options. Dedicated endpoints are ideal for businesses with high traffic or specific needs that shared endpoints can't meet.
Full nodes store and validate the blockchain's transactions, while archive nodes keep a complete history of the blockchain's states. Full nodes ensure current transactions follow the rules, whereas archive nodes allow access to historical blockchain data.
Choosing an external RPC node provider saves you money and time compared to setting up your own node. You’ll avoid the cost of running your own equipment and waiting several weeks for your node to get synchronized. Plus with a provider you only pay for what you use and avoid the complexity of frequently maintaining your own node.
