Unbreakable. Unstoppable.
An award-winning RPC architecture that is intelligent in every way.

Chainstack Elastic Nodes place the exact same unmatched intelligence and performance in your hands as the architecture powering our Unstoppable RPC project awarded by the Ethereum Foundation.

No artificial limits.
Just unbounded performance.

It’s a promise we take very seriously.

Platform Throughput 25,000+ Requests Per Second

Averaged across all users over the last 30 days

“Rapid adoption of Polygon has resulted in the need for Chainstack’s strong infra that can support high on-chain throughput.”
—Sandeep Nailwal, Polygon
Best throughput

Never be short on resources when you need them. Enjoy the highest throughput in the industry, regardless of traffic volumes. Need to handle a massive influx? Go for it.

No daily request limits

All our plans include class-leading monthly request volumes with no limits on the number or type of requests your DApp can make every day. Daily request limits? Who needs that?

Warp Transactions. Even more performance unbound.

The fastest transaction propagation on the planet. Warp Transactions help you supercharge your trading by tunneling your transactions through the ultra high-speed bloXroute network and making them available instantly for validators to include in the next block.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are Global Elastic Nodes?

A new standard in our Elastic Nodes infrastructure offering, Global Elastic Nodes are powered by a globally distributed load-balancing architecture that provides the lowest latency and fastest response times by routing traffic to the nearest, most performant nodes across multiple locations worldwide.

How do I deploy a Global Elastic Node?

When you deploy new Elastic Nodes from within the Chainstack Console, the default node configuration is set to Standard. This deploys a Global Elastic Node without you having to go through Advanced parameters. All it takes is for you to click “Next”.

View our live interactive demo to see how it works

How long does it take to deploy a global elastic node?

Global Elastic Nodes take less than 1 second to be deployed and become ready for use instantly thereafter.

Which protocols do Global Elastic Nodes support?

Global Elastic Nodes are being launched for Ethereum, BNB Smart Chain, and Polygon in the first phase of rollout. This will be followed by support for 15+ new protocols being launched in the coming weeks, eventually becoming available across our entire line-up of protocol offerings.

Are both Full and Archive node requests supported?

Yes, both Full and Archive node requests are supported.

Does using Global Elastic Nodes require additional fees?

No. Usage of Global Elastic Nodes does not require any additional fees and is billed at the same flat rate of 1 RU (Request Unit) for Full node requests, and 2 RUs per Archive node request.

How do load-balancing and post-recovery transition management work?

Our global load-balancing architecture swiftly re-routes operations in less than 1 second if a node is down or stressed enough to cause a lag of more than 40 blocks.

Once a node recovers, HTTP connections will return to it instantaneously. WebSocket connections will remain on the switched node for the duration of the ongoing session and will auto-connect to the original node, once available, in the next session.
