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.
Stellar Protocol: Node Deployment Details
Join the future of banking using the only simple deployment tool for Stellar. Includes the east Horizon API. Starting at $24.99/mo (with 30 day free trial).
Supplied with Horizon API
Every Stellar node we sell comes packaged with the Stellar Horizon API already set up and deployed. You get the easy Blockdaemon launch process and the simplicity of the Horizon API in one complete package. These nodes are basic watcher nodes, which you can submit transactions with and use the Horizon API.
Extra Security for Sensitive Operations
Financial operations require the strongest security possible, and Blockdaemon has gone beyond standard off-the-shelf offerings in hardening our nodes. All nodes -- shared or personal -- require a unique authentication key to access. Calls without it will immediately fail. Additionally, we have added encryption to RPC calls to ensure data passes through securely, and are not passed in clear text.
Develop, Discover, Distribute
The Stellar Horizon API is a rich API which has multiple supported SDKs available from Stellar. You can incorporate them in your application and connect directly to the network using languages from C# to Scala. Or, you can make simple REST calls with curl or an API client like Postman. Set up streaming data endpoints and monitor ledgers in real-time, or create offers for tokens. The full capability of the API is at your fingertips.
Dedicated Staff, Direct Access
Blockdaemon has a close partnership with Stellar and is informed of regular updates. As a result, we’re able to stay ahead of maintenance and updates on your node -- API or Core changes. We regularly apply security updates and patches as they are released and tested, so you don’t have to spend long hours managing software.
Blockdaemon Scales With Your Project
No matter what the stage of your project, Blockdaemon has a node for you. Shared nodes are available with the full functionality of Stellar and Horizon for $24.99 a month, and lets you get started quickly and easily without a large monthly commitment. As your project scales up, you can buy personal nodes which are exclusively yours, and not shared with anyone else. You’ll get the benefit of a dedicated machine without the management headaches of owning your own. Blockdaemon lets you add additional nodes quickly and easily, wherever you may want to.
Basic and Full Validators Available
Blockdaemon offers multiple options for validator node operators. Basic validators with recent history for Core and Horizon are available off the shelf in the app. Blockdaemon also offers full validators which carry the full history for Core and have a fully synced Horizon instance, and provide archives to the network at large, helping ensure the stability and security of the protocol. Full validators can be paid via invoice and give you additional support touchpoints and team access.
