WebSocket support for Warp transactions: Supercharging high-speed trading

We’re excited to announce the launch of WebSocket support for Warp transactions—a highly requested feature that caters to the needs of high-speed traders and those who require ultra-low latency in their blockchain operations.

What are Warp transactions?

In the dynamic and ever-evolving world of blockchain technology, speed and efficiency are of the utmost importance. Recognizing this need, Chainstack introduced a powerful new feature known as Warp transactions. This innovative solution leverages the high-speed bloXroute transaction relay network to expedite your transactions, ensuring they are picked up and processed by validators more quickly than ever before.

Using this method, your transactions will be distributed into the protocol’s mempool using this high-speed network. The effect of this is that your transaction becomes available for validators to pick up and include in the block at a significantly faster rate compared to standard mempool propagation. Essentially, Warp transactions are designed to cut down on transaction times, ensuring that your transactions get to where they need to go in the most efficient way possible.

What is WebSocket Secure?

WSS, or WebSocket Secure support refers to the implementation of the WebSocket protocol, which enables full-duplex communication channels over a single, long-lived connection between a client and a server. This technology has become a popular choice for real-time applications, such as online games, chat applications, and financial trading platforms.

Why WebSocket?

WSS offers numerous advantages over traditional HTTP connections, making it a preferred choice for real-time applications and systems that require low latency and high performance. This feature update comes in response to the increasing demand from our community. We understand that every millisecond of latency is crucial for traders, and our goal is to provide the best possible performance to help them stay competitive.

WebSocket enables full-duplex communication, which means that both the client and the server can send and receive data simultaneously without having to establish a new connection. In contrast, HTTP is a half-duplex protocol, where the client initiates a request, and the server sends a response, requiring a new connection for each interaction.

WebSocket connections are persistent, eliminating the need to repeatedly establish, and close connections for each interaction. This results in significantly lower latency as data can be transmitted instantly without the overhead of connection setup and teardown. HTTP connections, on the other hand, involve more overhead due to the need for establishing new connections for each request-response cycle.

High-speed trading with real-time updates

WebSocket connections reduce the amount of data transferred between the client and server by avoiding the need for HTTP headers and minimizing the overhead of connection establishment. This results in more efficient use of network resources and lower bandwidth consumption compared to HTTP.

WSS allows for real-time updates and notifications, as the server can push data to the client as soon as it becomes available. In contrast, HTTP relies on the client to request updates, which can lead to delays and inefficiencies.

WSS is designed to handle a large number of simultaneous connections with minimal overhead, making it suitable for applications that require high levels of concurrency and real-time communication. HTTP, on the other hand, can struggle with handling a high volume of connections due to its connection-oriented nature.

Building with WebSocket

By implementing WSS support Warp transactions, developers and users can enjoy faster and more efficient interactions with the blockchain network, which is especially valuable for high-speed trading and other time-sensitive applications. With WebSocket support, Warp transactions become the forefront of high-speed blockchain interactions, akin to a sports car with a top-notch pit crew.

Developers can leverage the benefits of WSS in their applications, such as bidirectional communication, lower latency, efficient use of resources, real-time updates, and scalability. This enables the creation of more responsive and efficient applications that cater to the needs of users who demand high performance and low latency.

In summary, WebSocket support for Warp transactions allows developers to harness the full potential of real-time communication, providing a seamless and efficient experience for users across various applications, especially those that require high-speed trading and time-sensitive operations.

Pricing

We are pleased to announce that WebSocket support for Chainstack Warp transactions comes at no additional charge, making it even more accessible for developers and users to take advantage of this powerful feature.

When using Warp transactions via WSS, you will be billed according to your chosen subscription plan and any applicable usage-based fees. This ensures that you only pay for the resources and services you use while enjoying the benefits of WSS without incurring extra costs.
