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.
Enterprise Level Security
Security is our top priority here at Blockdaemon. 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!

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.
Project Serum will unveil a fully functional decentralized exchange with trustless cross-chain trading, all at the speed and price that customers want. And despite living natively on Solana, it will be interoperable with Ethereum. Cross-Chain Swaps will allow anyone to trustlessly exchange assets between chains.
Serum’s software enables a fast DEX; it has cross-chain support, stablecoins, wrapped coins, orderbooks, and the ability to create custom and novel financial products; and while having all of those, it’s fully decentralized. There are no oracles to centralized price feeds; no tribunals whose honesty you rely on. Serum is pure DeFi. And unlike current DeFi, it’s fast and cheap.
Fast & Cheap
Serum boasts sub-second trading and settlement with lower transaction costs than any other DEX: $0.00001 per transaction.
Secure Validator Nodes
Easily run your own validator on Serum or delegate to Blockdaemon’s validators. All of our nodes — from our public validator node to dedicated deployments — follow best practices to be responsible members of the network, keeping our nodes running and participating in network consensus.
Frequently Asked Questions
What role do nodes play in Serum?
SRM can be staked on a node. Each node must have at least 10,000,000 SRM, and must include at least one MSRM. Nodes are expected to play the following roles:
- Each node may be called upon to provide insurance for a cross-chain transaction. They will receive a portion of the fees for any transaction in which they do this. Such collateral may be subject to certain default risks.
- There will be a fund of SRM that will be distributed as staking rewards to each node.
- Each node has a leader – the one who created it. A portion of all the rewards for that node will be given to the leader.
- Nodes perform important duties to optimize the performance and throughput of the Serum ecosystem. Rewards or penalties can be paid based on their execution.
What are orderbooks on Serum?
Serum hosts full limit orderbooks with an interface familiar to that of centralized exchanges. This is radically different than other decentralized exchanges.
What role does governance play in Serum?
SRM is anticipated to have specialized on-chain governance. It will be responsible for setting some important parameters (e.g. fees) but will not have the ability to take actions that would cripple Serum.
