Since summer of 2017, we’ve launched thousands of Ethereum nodes; experimented with a variety of use-cases and applications; contributed to dozens of hackathons around the world; met some amazing, talented people; and never gave up on building a tool for developers and businesses to run web3 dApps.

Accepting entries for web3 tutorials and creative writing

Going into 2019, we’re applying a focus on Education. We believe the next wave of blockchain enthusiasm, development, and adoption will be through education, and feel it’s the responsibility of those involved now, at the early stages of the tech, to facilitate it.

The Parity Ethereum Archive Node is the newest addition to QuikNode’s services, adding to the existing lineup of ETH MainNet, Ropsten, Kovan and Rinkeby TestNets, and ETC MainNet and Morden TestNet full nodes.

What is an Archive node exactly?

An Archive node contains all state trie data (all the transaction records that have ever happened) and is generally deployed by advanced users & businesses who need the full blockchain data to play around with — fast.

This means you can see what every public key balance and smart contract state looked like at any specific point (or more accurately “block”) in time. Are you curious about what all accounts looked like on block 4199900? An archival node will have the entire global state saved at that time.-

ABOUT QUIKNODE

Although Dmitry’s team’s interest in blockchain technology goes back to 2013, they started playing with Ethereum (programmable blockchain) in spring of 2017.
