All That Node: 2022 Recap and Roadmap for 2023

What a year. 2022 was incredibly eventful and dynamic for the whole blockchain scene, and one that we’re unlikely to forget. Through the rise and falls, however, one thing has remained constant: builders will build. With that in mind, for us it’s been a year dedicated to developing the multi-chain ecosystem and growing our relationship with fantastic Web3 builders via an expanded feature suite.

This article will review what our team delivered in 2022, as well as introduce All That Node’s roadmap for 2023. Our mission being to connect you to Web3 infrastructure and data with ease, we’re always searching for how to provide the most enhanced and straightforward Node-as-a-Service for our users. Our starting point building an integrated platform that gathers heterogeneous blockchains, thereby offering a standardized blockchain experience.

1. Enabling Access to Multi-Chain

One of our top priorities as a team dedicated to bringing Web3 infrastructure to builders has been to support a wide range of blockchain projects. And unlike a few years ago, you can now easily find alternative Layer-1 blockchains, as well as many Layer-2 solutions built to solve the “Blockchain Trilemma” through improved cost and scalability. From an initial 10 protocols supported at the start of 2022, All That Node now offers 21 protocols, including:

Avalanche

Unlike other competitors, not only do we support the Avalanche C-Chain (an instance of the EVM that implements the Snowball consensus mechanism for faster finality; also the most activated EVM-compatible chain), but we also provide access to the P-Chain and X-Chain.

With increased use cases for subnets and an estimated max throughput of 4,500 TPS, Avalanche is extremely attractive for developers seeking to deploy high-performing dApps in an eco-friendly and low-cost way. All That Node offers RPC/ Archive endpoints for interaction with the network, as well as a faucet for developers. For more details, check out Avalanche’s RPC documentation.

Axelar

You may already know that most Node-as-a-Service projects do not offer access to chains from the Cosmos ecosystem. All That Node is different.

Axelar provides secure cross-chain communication based on Proof-of-Stake consensus. Cross-chain communication essentially allows users to interact with any dApp or asset on any chain they like. Developers can start using LCD API and RPC API to access Axelar and the wider multi-chain ecosystem. You can find more information regarding Axelar in this article.

Klaytn

While many sought access to Klaytn, there weren’t any practical or reliable node provider services for developers. So All That Node began supporting Klaytn from April 2022. Klaytn is an open-source, BFT-based enterprise-oriented blockchain that enables a user-friendly building experience through its modular infrastructure. It include the following specifications:

  • 1-second block generation and confirmation time
  • 4,000 TPS
  • Low gas price (almost 1/10 of Ethereum’s)
  • EVM-compatible and supports execution of Solidity contracts

Read the Klaytn RPC documentation for more details.

Aptos

Aptos is a Layer-1 blockchain developed by former Meta team members who worked on Diem. Aptos promises to be a faster, more secure and more scalable blockchain than its competitors, not to mention its next-level programming language, Move, allowing for rapid and secure transaction execution.

With a very impressive ceiling throughput of 100,000 TPS, Aptos is expected to accelerate Web3 mass adoption– hence why we started offering RPC endpoints for developers!

Curious readers can check out the Aptos RPC documentation here.

Sepolia Testnet

The Merge, regarded as one of the biggest events in our industry, brought about a number of important changes to Ethereum including the deprecation of Proof-of-Work-based testnets like Ropsten.

From the ashes, Sepolia was born– a new PoS testnet replacing the legacy testnets, as well as Goerli (already operating based on PoS). All That Node started supporting Sepolia in order to allow developers to test and deploy dApps safely. For more details on how to get started with Sepolia, check out the github.

Layer-2

Layer-2 projects have gradually taken over as the most-used scaling strategy for Ethereum, offering reduced latency and cost, while leveraging Ethereum’s security and decentralization.

All That Node chose to begin by supporting Arbitrum in 2022, and we fully expect to continue expanding our range– so stay tuned!

Arbitrum

Built by Offchain Labs, Arbitrum is an optimistic rollup project, a kind of L2 scaling solution that executes transactions off-chain (L2) before republishing them on L1.

These rollups are called ‘optimistic’ as they optimistically assume that incentivized parties will behave honestly. The Arbitrum version significantly improved on the original rollup design with advantages such as greater efficiency, reduced latency, stronger liveness guarantees, and better incentive compatibility.

All That Node offers RPC/ Archive endpoints for developers to interact with Arbitrum Nitro. This L2 seeks to offer users the same experience as they have on Ethereum, but with fast transactions, low cost and latency and no compromise on security. To find out more about Arbitrum, read on here.

You can also check out the differences between Arbitrum and Ethereum, or more detailed documentation on Arbitrum features.

2. Newly Added Features

WebSocket API

Unlike HTTP, with WebSockets, you don’t need to continuously make requests when you searching for specific information. WebSockets maintain a network connection and listen for changes, which means you can benefit by subscribing to actions based on your preferred pattern of usage.

You can now access WebSockets on All That Node.

Free Archive Data

Decentralization at the data accessibility level when it comes to node infrastructure has been somewhat lacking so far. Even though many developers and projects alike require archive data to create what they want, they lack the resources or expertise to maintain or operate nodes– especially as the nodes grow in size!

Hence why decided to start supporting public archive nodes. That way, any developer can request archive data (rate-limited) using our public nodes, or access unlimited archive data via the paid plan.

Requests for archive data can range from:

  • What was the price of ETH on March 2nd?
  • What NFTs did I buy until now with wallet 0x…?
  • What was the balance of wallet 0x… on November 13th, 2017?

New Pricing Plans

After receiving feedback from our users, we decided to offer new pricing plans. Now, simply purchase once to benefit from access to all chains. Users can also choose to set up their own node, giving them exclusive access to that node.

Various features including Trace and Debug APIs, Archive Data, and 24/7 Dedicated Technical Support are now included in our paid plans (dependent on the tier).

Customers can also choose between a shared plan — the default option for most users — and a dedicated plan for exclusive, maintenance-free ownership of their node.

Our new pricing plans will soon start measuring usage in CU (Computing Unit), meaning that the cost will vary from 1 to n depending on the resources required for queries. This will take into account factors such as compute, memory, disk, and network resources.

Multi-Region Support

As Web3 becomes increasingly global, the need for uninterrupted service and uptime is exceedingly crucial. Unlike the stock market, the cryptocurrency market as well as the decentralized crypto industry (i.e. DeFi) must continue operating 24/7 in order to truly function. This makes constant and unrestricted access to blockchain data and nodes absolutely vital.

As our number of global users increase, running nodes in diverse regions is becoming even more important for us. We’ve begun to support more regions starting with the South Korea Region, which will greatly improve performance and results for teams based in Asia.

3. Our 2023 Roadmap

Enhanced APIs starting with NFTs

While the bear market has impacted the the valuation of NFTs, it’s quite clear that they’re here to stay. However, deploying NFT collections is still no easy task for most.

We hope to radically change the user experience with our NFT APIs on All That Node. This will expedite important steps like configuring ownership, minting customized NFTs using metadata, reading NFT information, etc. Developers will be able to freely and efficiently access any information they need on NFTs.

Improved Dashboard

You can expect to see increased security features, usage insights, and an alert system. We’ll release an article shortly with more details on this upgrade, along with other new features included in All That Node 2.0.

Project Sharing

This new feature, highly requested by All That Node users, will allow anyone to easily share their projects with external collaborators. As the account owner, you’ll still have complete control over who has access, what roles they have, and any other access settings.

Wrapping Up

In line with our mission to connect you to Web3 infrastructure and data with ease, All That Node will continue to up its game with a wider ecosystem of chains, more powerful features, and an expanded suite for every kind of user.

We’re dedicated to providing accessible, scalable, and comprehensive Web3 infrastructure so developers can go all in on the projects they’re building, without worrying about Dev/NodeOps, uptime, scaling, etc. Don’t waste your valuable time and resources– we’ve got you!
