Nodes & APIS

Dedicated Polkadot 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.

Staking API

Blockdaemon’s Staking API enables clients to use a standardized and trusted API to automate staking transaction signing, and enables easy and scalable staking, even on Ethereum. To complement the Staking API, Blockdaemon also offers a Staking Reporting API. This API is on-hand to serve your financial data analysis needs. The Staking Reporting API removes many of the hassles you face in accessing staking information from multiple protocols.

Universal API

If you want access to Polkadot 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.

Native Polkadot API

With the RPC Native 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.

Stake

White-Label Polkadot Validator Node

Blockdaemon lets anyone run their own validator node and white-label it in their own name. Our white-label validator nodes are non-custodial (you keep your keys private), fully maintained/monitored, run at 99.9% uptime and have manual-failover built-in, eliminating double-signing. Blockdaemon’s market leading node performance is focused on meeting the high demands of large institutional banks, custodians and exchanges. Protecting your assets is critical to Blockdaemon and to mitigate risk we’ve established slashing insurance, provided by Marsh.

Staking Tools

Our Staking Dashboard gives you a high-level overview of your staking activity, which includes your rewards earned, account address, principal, and reward amounts converted to USD.If you want to analyze your Polkadot rewards more comprehensively, download them from a Staking Report. The Staking Report contains validator address, principal staked, crypto token, time period, and ending validator balance.

Public Polkadot Validator

If you want to test out our node performance before investing in a validator node or don't have the minimum Polkadot tokens to run your own validator, consider delegating to a Blockdaemon public validator.

Staking API

Simplify your DOT Staking experience with the Blockdaemon Staking API. Stake efficiently and cost-effectively through a single integration with automated transaction creation. Remove institutional DOT staking challenges and connect to the blockchain economy with the Blockdaemon Staking API. To complement the Staking API, Blockdaemon also offers a DOT Reporting API.
