OnFinality Launches Complete API Support for Avalanche!

4 min readAug 2, 2022

OnFinality, Polkadot’s leading blockchain infrastructure provider, announces groundbreaking move to provide API support on Avalanche!

OnFinality’s Enhanced API Service has been serving over 1 Billion JSON RPC requests to its public API service every day across Polkadot and its 99.99% uptime is why most Polkadot parachain teams are relying on it. Leading dApp developers can connect in seconds to enterprise grade endpoints that scale infinitely and rely on archive nodes to provide full history of the chain.

Today, we are proud to announce that we are ready to replicate this same global performance, automated scalability and high reliability across all chains on the Avalanche network — the Exchange Chain (X-Chain), Contract Chain (C-Chain), and Platform Chain (P-Chain).

OnFinality’s elastic API service is a globally distributed service, we’ll be running Avalanche nodes around the world to ensure that your users receive the lowest latency service possible. Additionally, by using an API key, you can receive higher request limits, and access extensive and intuitive monitoring to better understand the requests that you are making and the behaviour of your users, so you can improve your dApp.

Why Avalanche?

Avalanche is an open, programmable smart contracts platform for decentralised applications. It is also the fastest smart contracts platform in the blockchain industry, as measured by time-to-finality, and has the most validators securing its activity of any proof-of-stake protocol. Avalanche is blazingly fast, low cost, and green. Any smart contract-enabled application can outperform its competition by deploying on Avalanche.
