Ubiquity Gateway Migration Guide

Ubiquity has migrated to an improved gateway. This provides an improved level of service including additional reporting and increased transparency.

The new Ubiquity gateway provides the following benefits:

  • Improved stability provides even higher uptime levels
  • Improved metrics mean you can keep track of your usage
  • Usage tracking ensures you are not overpaying
  • Increased usage limit for free and growth tiers

Action required: If you are an existing Ubiquity user, you will need to migrate to the new gateway to benefit from these updates.

Migrating your existing Ubiquity access is a straightforward process. We have outlined the migration steps and additional useful information below:


How to Migrate Your Existing Ubiquity RPC Access

  • Step 1: Create a new Ubiquity API key
  • Step 2: Replace your existing API key with your new API key wherever you use it
  • Step 3: Update your Ubiquity URL as shown below:
    • From: api.blockdaemon.com
    • To: svc.blockdaemon.com
  • Step 4: If you’re using the Universal API, update the URL as shown below:
    • From: https://ubiquity.api.blockdaemon.com/v1/{request}
    • To: https://ubiquity.api.blockdaemon.com/universal/v1/{request}

Ubiquity Usage Now Measured in Compute Units

As part of the migration, we are also changing how we monitor Ubiquity usage.

Previously, usage was based on the number of transactions made and we treated all transactions equally. However, different transactions and protocols require different levels of computational power.

We have now categorized all transactions according to the following table:

Transaction Category Compute Unit Value
XS 1
S 3
M 5
L 8
XL 21
Egress Custom
Batch Queries Custom

General Ubiquity Quota/Billing Information

  • Your Ubiquity quota resets on the 1st of every month.
  • Your billing cycle runs from the 1st of every month.
  • If you join during a period of the month, you will be charged full price, your billing cycle will then reset on the 1st of the following month. This will be at a discounted rate for the first full month.
  • Responses now contain headers which you can use to know how close they are to using quota.
