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 Growth, Business, and Enterprise plans?

Our Growth, Business, and Enterprise plans address specific needs related to your blockchain adoption journey. We anticipate enterprises taking advantage of our multi-cloud and multi-region deployment options to build cross-border consortia, as well as enjoying advanced customization options of their networks and nodes. Management, infrastructure and support costs per node are higher on the premium plans, therefore the compute is more expensive.

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.

With a shared node, you pay for JSON-RPC requests to the node and do not pay for the compute and storage resources used by the node.

With a dedicated node, you pay for the compute and storage resources used by the node and do not pay for JSON-RPC requests to the node.

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

What is a request?

A request is a single JSON-RPC call to a node through an HTTPS or WebSocket Secure endpoint.

What is an included request?

Included requests are the number of requests allocated to your account’s subscription plan.

What is an extra request?

An extra request is a JSON-RPC call exceeding the monthly allocation of included requests.

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.

A consortium project can contain Hyperledger Fabric, Corda, Quorum, or MultiChain networks deployed on a public cloud, while a public chain project can contain shared or dedicated Ethereum nodes and shared or dedicated Bitcoin nodes.

What is a network?

Network refers to the actual blockchain network. This can be a consortium-based blockchain network built on Hyperledger Fabric, Corda, Quorum, or MultiChain. Or it can be your public blockchain network on Ethereum, Polygon PoS, Binance Smart Chain, 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.

See also Organizations, users, and members.

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.

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

Chainstack supports deploying Ethereum, Polygon PoS, and Binance Smart Chain nodes 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 mainnet, you can deploy either a full node or an archive node. With a full node, you can query the historical state of the mainnet at only the latest 128 blocks. To be able to query the historical state of the mainnet at any block, you need an archive node.
What is a service node?

A node deployed with your consortium network to provide network services.

You are only charged for the use of peer nodes. The service nodes are always free.

See:

What is a peer node?

A node that you deploy to interact with and be a part of a blockchain network.

What is a cross-cloud deployment?

Deployment of nodes of the same network in multiple Chainstack-provided cloud hosting providers.

What is a cross-region deployment?

Deployment of nodes of the same network in multiple Chainstack-provided cloud hosting provider regions.

What is a hybrid deployment?

Deployment of nodes of the same network in any combination of Chainstack-provided cloud hosting providers and private hosting providers.

What is private hosting?

Deployment of nodes and networks to a self-managed infrastructure.

What is a self-hosted deployment?

Deployment of nodes and networks to a self-managed infrastructure.

Do you provide API?

Yes, you can manage your resources through the API. See API documentation.

What kind of support do you provide?
  • Standard: best effort email support for technical questions and issues.
  • Dedicated: 24×5 availability with <12 hour response time.
  • Priority: 24×7 availability with guaranteed SLA and priority ticket handling.
