Frequently asked questions
What is a request unit (RU)?

Request unit (RU) is a metric that measures the size and complexity of request processing for Chainstack request-based services.

It provides a unified way to bill users for different features, which allows us to offer a fairer and more flexible pricing structure. Now with request units, users can freely utilize them for:

  • Regional elastic nodes
  • Global elastic nodes
  • Elastic archive nodes
  • Subgraphs requests
What is Chainstack services cost in request units (RU)?

The current cost for Chainstack services in RU is the following:

ServiceRU per request
Regional elastic node request1
Global elastic node request1
Elastic archive node request2
Subgraphs request20
What are included request units (RU)?

Along with request units we are introducing one unified amount of included request units to provide maximum pricing transparency and granular control of usage so you could allocate resources according to your needs.

Current amount of included request units is following:

  • Developer plan has 3,000,000 included request units
  • Growth plan has 20,000,000 included request units
  • Business plan has 140,000,000 included request units
  • Enterprise plan has 400,000,000 included request units

Now with request units, users can freely utilize them for:

  • Regional elastic nodes
  • Global elastic nodes
  • Elastic archive nodes
  • Subgraphs requests
What is extra usage?

Extra usage is an amount of extra JSON-RPC calls exceeding the monthly allocation of included requests units. Its price depends on your subscription plan. 1M of extra request units cost:

  • $20 on Developer plan
  • $15 on Growth plan
  • $10 on Business plan
  • Starting at $5 on Enterprise plan
How does throughput work?

When a customer experiences a significant increase in request volume, they may encounter a threshold for the number of requests allowed per second. This update is implemented to ensure the best performance and reliability for every customer.

Rate limits:

  1. Developer plan – 25 RPS ≈ 625 CUs/API Credits per second
  2. Growth plan – 250 RPS ≈ 6250 CUs/API Credits per second
  3. Business plan – 500 RPS ≈ 12500 CUs/API Credits per second
What happened to included elastic archive node requests?

Included elastic archive node requests are now part of one unified quota for included request units.

What is the price for dedicated node compute per hour?

Dedicated node compute per hour now has a unified price of $0.50 across all paid subscription plans.

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.

Which clouds are available?
  • Amazon Web Services
  • Microsoft Azure
  • Google Cloud Platform
  • Virtuozzo
  • Chainstack Cloud
Which regions are available?
  • Asia-Pacific
  • Europe
  • the United States
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 elastic nodes on a public network since Chainstack absorbs this cost.

What is a project?

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

A public chain project can contain elastic or dedicated Ethereum, Polygon, BNB Smart Chain, Avalanche, Arbitrum, Optimism, Oasis Sapphire, NEAR, Aurora, Solana, Polygon zkEVM, Aptos, Gnosis Chain, Cronos, Filecoin, Fantom, Starknet, Harmony, Tezos, Fuse or Bitcoin nodes.

A consortium project can contain Hyperledger Fabric, Corda, Quorum, or MultiChain networks.

What is a network?

Network refers to the actual blockchain network. This can be a public blockchain network on Ethereum, Polygon, BNB Smart Chain, Avalanche, Arbitrum, Optimism, Oasis Sapphire, NEAR, Aurora, Solana, Aptos, Gnosis Chain, Cronos, Filecoin, Fantom, Starknet, Harmony, Tezos, Fuse or Bitcoin. Or it can be a consortium-based blockchain network built on Hyperledger Fabric, Corda, Quorum, or MultiChain.

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.

See also Organizations, users, and members.

What is Bolt?

Bolt is a Chainstack patented 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 Ethereum, Polygon PoS, BNB Smart Chain, Avalanche, Arbitrum, NEAR, Aptos, Gnosis Chain, Cronos,  Fantom, Tezos, Fuse 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 16 to 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?

Chainstack offers various support plans to meet different support needs.

Our support levels are:

  • Community: Community support on Discord, Telegram, and knowledge base.
  • Standard: Email and community support with <24/5 response time.
