OnFinality Providing Free Shared Node Services to Edgeware

2 min readMay 2, 2021

The team at OnFinality is proud to announce that we have delivered and implemented public shared node services to the Edgeware community. OnFinality is the leading IaaS (infrastructure as a service) platform providing mission critical infrastructure to the Polkadot ecosystem. We now completely support Edgeware on our platform, allowing free community shared node API endpoints and one-click dedicated node deployments.

Edgeware is an on-chain governed, Nominated Proof-of-Stake (PoS) Smart contract platform. Participants vote, delegate, and fund improvements and upgrades through DAOs, economic mechanisms, cryptographic voting systems, and more in order to develop the network and the surrounding ecosystem. Edgeware emphasises user ownership and true decentralisation through its governance mechanisms and through its unique token distribution mechanism, the lockdrop.

There are three ways that the Edgeware community can access free high performance shared nodes on the OnFinality platform:

1. Directly via the Public API Endpoint

Edgeware community users can quickly access OnFinality’s public endpoint using the following two endpoints:

HTTPS: https://edgeware.api.onfinality.io/public

Websocket: wss://edgeware.api.onfinality.io/public-ws

2. Directly via their own Private API Endpoint

Edgeware community users can create their own account in OnFinality to receive their own private API endpoint. An advantage over the public API endpoint is that we provide insightful statistics and metrics to each API key holder about their requests. Free private API keys can be requested from app.onfinality.io

3. Through Polkadot.js

You’ll now see that Polkadot.js has OnFinality listed as a provider for Edgeware. Connect to us today!

Bonus: Dedicated Nodes

If the Edgeware community has needs above and beyond what our free API service providers, we also provide one-click dedicated node access for Edgeware that users can deploy from app.onfinality.io
