Try Flare on Blockdaemon Flare is a next-generation blockchain which enables smart contracts with multiple non-Turing complete assets that settle on their native chain.

Why Use Blockdaemon? Blockdaemon is the Total Node Management Solution

Blockdaemon guarantees peace of mind, as you never have to worry about maintaining or upgrading your nodes ever again — we look after all of that for you. Our finger is constantly on the pulse of each blockchain we support to ensure all of our nodes remain perfectly healthy. Our extensive experience across protocols lets us expertly monitor, repair and replace nodes where protocol level errors may occur. For any protocol updates needed, we look after these in advance so you never see any disruption in service.

Institutional Grade Security

Security is our top priority here at Blockdaemon. Our world-class node infrastructure spans across eight different cloud and bare metal providers, guaranteeing vendor and geographical diversity. This means we deploy nodes from a suite of secure data centres distributed across the globe to achieve a diversified and resilient network.

Dedicated Node Infrastructure

All nodes purchased through us are 100% customer dedicated. This means your node is yours exclusively. You’ll enjoy a dedicated node which has a unique address, its own unique connection and authentication key. Furthermore, these are never reused. We ensure your node is not open and exposed to anyone on the internet. Any nodes you’d like to add on additionally can be done so quickly and easily as well!

A Trusted Partner

Blockdaemon is by your side on your blockchain journey. We are the only infrastructure platform for blockchain nodes which offer multi-cloud and multi-geographical support, with just a few clicks. Want custom configurations and branded experiences? No problem, we provide a unified, whole-org, collaborative rollout to manage a complete network. Whatever your needs, we will work closely with you to deliver the solution you need.

Federated Byzantine Agreement based Avalanche consensus

Control over the Flare network is proportionally given to the miners that contribute the most to the safety of underlying blockchains on Flare, weighted by market cap.

State-connector system to observe the state of underlying chains

State-connector proofs can be submitted by anyone, and all nodes independently compare this proof to their own view of an underlying chain before permitting the proof to be finalised onto Flare.

Turing-complete

Flare offers Turing-complete smart contract functionality.

  • What problem is Flare addressing?

    According to the Flare website, ~ 65% of the value of Blockchain Tokens is inaccessible to Decentralised Applications. Many cryptocurrencies, such as XRP, Litecoin and Dogecoin, do not support smart contracts which can be used in a trustless manner. Flare delivers a smart contract solution for certain cryptocurrencies. Flare brings together the value of the non-Turing complete tokens with the transformative power of smart contracts on a network that can scale for value as well as transaction throughput.

  • What is a Flare address?

    Flare uses the Ethereum Virtual Machine for smart contracts. Flare addresses are Ethereum style addresses that use the same key derivation scheme. Flare addresses are not “on” the Ethereum blockchain.

  • What is Songbird?

    Songbird is the canary network for Flare. This canary network will have real economic value on the line, as represented by the SGB token. This is similar to Kusama being the canary network for Polkadot. This is designed to test new features of the blockchain before they are introduced on the main Flare network.
