Nodes & APIS

Dedicated Bitcoin Nodes

We've been perfecting Nodes-as-a-Service since 2017. All our Dedicated RPC Nodes are built for zero downtime and high security. Our nodes are supported by optional High-Availability Clusters, offering secure backups and helping you manage unforeseen load spikes. Lastly, every machine we manage comes with 24/7 support and transparent service level agreements.

Universal API

If you want access to Bitcoin data but don't want to run a Dedicated node, take a closer look at our Universal API. Our Universal multi-chain API lets you tap into full archive data and transaction data at a fraction of the cost of running a node. Best of all, it's free to try out.

RPC Bitcoin API

With the RPC API, you can easily interact with multiple major protocols through their own native APIs. The RPC API allows you to go deeper into a specific blockchain and get enriched native specific data with no abstraction to connect to our nodes.
