What is QuikNode API?

Service and Features Overview

Dec 8, 2019 · 2 min read

QuikNode API is your high-performance access to the Ethereum network.

A free tier is available and you can start using it right away — register now.

After login, you’ll see your Main dashboard with your complimentary API access node:

Clicking on the node will bring you to the Node dashboard, where your Web3 URL (rpc endpoint, httpProvider) is shown, as well as Getting Started guides:

Free accounts are limited to 2 req/sec and 500 req/day.

In web3js, for example, copy/paste the httpProvider link like so:

const Web3 = require('web3')const httpProvider = "https://free-your-node-name.quiknode.pro/hash/"var web3 = new Web3(new Web3.providers.HttpProvider(httpProvider));

We also return three HTTP headers to ease debugging and make it transparent how far into the daily rate a user is:

x-ratelimit-limit: 500
x-ratelimit-remaining: 497
x-ratelimit-reset: 1575592850

When you’re ready to go into production or need more than 2 req/sec, you can “Boot an ETH Node” from the Main dashboard.

Ready to get started? Sign up here 👉 https://new.quiknode.io/accounts/new

web3, eth, net, shh, and parity (some non-standard and depricated calls are not supported — see ‘Help’ tab inside the Node dashboard for more details).

It’s easy to switch. Just swap your request URL with the one from QuikNode — done!
