Frequently asked questions
What protocols do you support?

Chainstack supports MultiChain, Quorum, and public Ethereum mainnet and testnet. Support for Hyperledger Fabric, Corda, and more protocols is on the way.

Which clouds are available?

Chainstack provides deployment on Google Cloud Platform and Amazon Web Services. We plan to offer several more including Microsoft Azure, Alibaba Cloud, and DigitalOcean soon.

Which regions are available?

Chainstack provides deployment in the following regions: Asia-Pacific, Europe, and the USA. We plan to offer more regions and subregions in the near future.

Why do you charge per hour?

We believe in transparent pricing and think that charging per hour for compute (including traffic) and storage is the best way to let our users pay only for what they use.

Why is compute more expensive on the business and enterprise plans?

Our business and enterprise plans address specific needs related to your blockchain adoption journey. We anticipate enterprises taking advantage of our multi-region deployment options to build cross-border consortiums. The enterprise plan is, therefore, higher in price to account for higher traffic costs required to synchronize nodes located in different deployment regions.

How does storage cost work?

Chainstack charges node storage at the rate of $0.01 per 20GB/hour. This charge applies only to nodes on (a) a consortium network, and to (b) dedicated nodes on a public chain.

There is no storage cost for shared nodes on a public network since Chainstack absorbs this cost.

What is the difference between a shared and a dedicated node?

A shared node is the node whose resources you share with other customers.

A dedicated node is the node you exclusively use for your production purposes.

In offering two options, Chainstack offers great flexibility to users enabling them to choose the right node type for their requirements.

Are shared Ethereum nodes free?

Yes, shared Ethereum nodes are completely free for all plans.

Are shared Bitcoin nodes free?

Yes, shared Bitcoin nodes are completely free for all plans.

What is a project?

On Chainstack, a project organizes your blockchain networks and nodes. There are two types of projects: Consortium and Public chain. Chainstack allows you to create an unlimited number of projects irrespective of the plan you choose.

For now, a Consortium project can contain MultiChain or Quorum networks deployed on a public cloud, while a Public chain project can contain shared or dedicated Ethereum nodes.

What is a network?

Network refers to the actual blockchain network. This can be a consortium-based blockchain network built on Corda, Quorum, or MultiChain. Or it can be your public blockchain network on Ethereum or Bitcoin.

Who is a user?

A user is someone who signs up on behalf of a member.

Consider Wheels Inc, an auto manufacturer. A user would typically be an IT manager, who is an employee of Wheels Inc and signs up on Chainstack to build a blockchain network on behalf of the organization.

Who is a member?

A member refers to an organization that is a participant in a project. An organization first creates a project and may then invite other organizations to participate in the project.

For example, Wheels Inc, an auto manufacturer, could create a project called Parts Tracking and invite Dreams Delivery, its logistics partner. Once Dreams Delivery accepts the invite, it can view the Parts Tracking project and its constituent networks.

Both Wheels Inc and Dreams Delivery are, therefore, members.

What is Bolt?

Bolt is a Chainstack patent pending node synchronization technology.

Chainstack does regular snapshots of the blockchain data and keeps the data in the platform’s snapshot registry.

The platform restores the latest snapshot to every newly initiated node. As a result, every node deployed with Chainstack and Bolt syncs from the latest snapshot instead of from the genesis block.

Read more at the Chainstack blog.

What is the difference between a full node and an archive node?

Chainstack supports deploying an Ethereum node on the mainnet in the following modes:

  • Full node — a node that stores full blockchain data.
  • Archive node — a node that stores full blockchain data and an archive of historical states. To be a part of the Ethereum mainnet, you can deploy either a full node or an archive node. With a full node, you can query the historical state of the Ethereum mainnet at only the latest 128 blocks. To be able to query the historical state of the Ethereum mainnet at any block, you need an archive node.
What kind of comprehensive support do you provide?
