OnFinality Supports Subspace Network to Bring Decentralized Storage To Kusama
OnFinality, a leading blockchain infrastructure as a service platform, is pleased to announce its integration with Subspace Labs, the distributed research and development company behind the Subspace Network . OnFinality’s Enhanced API Service has been a critical component to enable Subspace to archive the full history of the Kusama relay chain and all live parachains.
This integration is a part of a broader effort by OnFinality and Subspace to support the growth of the Polkadot and Kusama ecosystems by providing a permanent, scalable, decentralized storage layer.
Sam Zou, The Founder and CEO of OnFinality shared “OnFinality is delighted to support Subspace in their goal of building decentralized storage for the Polkadot ecosystem. As an infrastructure business ourself, we are proud to work with a team that share the same goals and passion for foundational technology to support the broader Web 3 ecosystem”.
The Subspace solution provides affordable permanent storage and allows any blockchain to off-load the burden of running archival nodes onto the Subspace Network, without compromising security or decentralization. Subspace also provides a common retrieval API which simplifies and standardizes access to blockchain data across networks. Together, these features open up a world of possibilities for different blockchains to interact with each other’s data.
Jeremiah Wagstaff, the Founder and CEO of Subspace said “It’s been a pleasure working with the team at OnFinality to ensure we make this service as robust as possible. Kudos to their engineers for building such a solid API service.”
How Subspace and OnFinality worked together
OnFinality works collaboratively with each of its partners to provide infrastructure guidance and support in advance of any launch and is one of the reasons why every parachain team so far has relied on OnFinality to provide scalable API services. After consultation with the Subspace team, OnFinality’s Public API Service was deployed to allow Subspace Relayer nodes to subscribe to new finalized blocks of the Kusama relay chain and all live parachains. Relayer nodes then bundle each new set of blocks into a storage transaction before submitting to the Subspace Network Blockchain.
Why Subspace partners with OnFinality for infrastructure
OnFinality’s mission is to support all blockchain organisations in the world by providing critical infrastructure so they can focus on their core businesses. OnFinality’s API Service allows developers to access high performance managed shared nodes without any setup and at minimal cost. Subspace Labs has built their Kusama Relayer Service on top of OnFinality’s public RPC (Remote Procedure Call) endpoint to back up the full blocks of the Kusama relay chain and all of the live parachains in real-time. OnFinality is serving over 600 million JSON RPC requests to its public API service every day and is currently integrated with 22 networks including Kusama, Statemine, Karura, Bifrost, Shiden, Calamari, Altair, Moonriver, Heiko, Khala, Basilisk, Kilt, and Kintsugi.
About Subspace Network
The Subspace Network is a scalable platform for storage and computation designed to maximize vertical and horizontal scalability without compromising security or decentralization by combining its own novel consensus algorithm with a host of cutting-edge academic proposals. After several years of research, largely funded by a grant from the US National Science Foundation, Subspace Labs raised a $4.5MM seed round in June 2021 led by Hypersphere Ventures and Stratos Technologies.
OnFinality is a SaaS platform that provides infrastructure and developer tools that saves developers hours and allows you to grow with confidence. With OnFinality you can deploy dedicated nodes to 20+ Polkadot networks in minutes, or access an enhanced shared node API service for reliable service. Our mission is to help blockchain and dApp developers build the decentralised future faster.
