Blockdaemon empowers blockchain projects by seamlessly creating and managing decentralized networks across multiple providers. 18 month old company with live product for over a year with over a dozen protocols, we have the expertise to launch your nodes easily.
Connect your wallet or build DApps on the largest blockchain ecosystem. Starting at $14.99/mo (with 30 day free trial).
Access the Ethereum network
Accessing the Ethereum network has never been easier. With Blockdaemon’s three-click deploy, you can be up and running in a matter of minutes. You can develop dApps, deploy smart contracts, or simply connect a wallet and manage your own transactions.
Participate with Shared and Personal Nodes
Blockdaemon allows you to participate at whatever level your budget allows. If you are just getting started, you can access a shared node for $14.99 with a risk-free 30 day trial. If you need more dedicated resources, personal nodes are available to you and are yours exclusively -- no resources are shared with other users on personal nodes, ever.
Perfect For Application Development
Whatever configuration you choose, you’ve got a high-powered platform for building the next great dApp or smart contract. Our machines have been chosen to ensure power and reliability so you don’t have to worry about it falling behind or suffering poor performance. Due to this tuning and the overhead of cloud costs, we do not allow and do not recommend you attempt to use these nodes for mining purposes.
Access Leading Testnets
Blockdaemon allows you to participate in the Ethereum mainnet, of course, but also allows access to the two major testnets - Rinkeby and Ropsten. If you want a high fidelity to the Ethereum mainnet, you can use the Ropsten Proof-of-Work based testnet, which uses the same consensus mechanism as the Ethereum mainnet. You can also use the Proof-of-Authority based Rinkeby network which relies on trusted community members to process transactions. Whatever your needs are, Blockdaemon has you covered.
Custom Security And Monitoring
Blockdaemon has extensive experience running and monitoring Ethereum nodes. All nodes have monitoring enabled by default so we can anticipate and address issues before they become problematic. A custom security proxy also wraps our nodes to prevent malicious and unauthorized use. We don’t store private keys, so you don’t need to worry about private keys ending up on your node.
Managed Software And Updates
Blockdaemon actively monitors repositories and the community news for upcoming events. When kernel updates come along, we will test and deploy them after we’ve verified their reliability. And when important forks happen -- for instance, Constantinople and St. Petersburg -- Blockdaemon will update your node to be compatible before the event.
