5 min readSep 21, 2023


Lifetime Report


Entering into the second half of 2023, we continue to deliver reliable, scalable and high performing solutions across over 100 chains including Avalanche, BNB Chain, Ethereum, Polkadot and Polygon, maintaining our 99.99% uptime target (less than 53 minutes of downtime per year)!

You can follow along with our target uptime by viewing the live numbers on our status page (https://status.onfinality.io/).

Now Supporting All Polkadot Parachains

OnFinality has been the leading infrastructure provider in Polkadot, supporting almost 80% of parachains. In August, we added API support for the remaining 20 Polkadot parachains, bringing the grand total number of networks in our marketplace to over 100!

This milestone comes thanks to the support from the Polkadot treasury to fund common good infrastructure for the entire Polkadot community.

This level of ecosystem support reaffirms Polkadot’s reputation as one of the most developer and innovation friendly ecosystems, and a top choice for app-chain builders when deciding on what layer-0 to build in.

OnFinality will be working closely with other infrastructure providers to expand this common good infrastructure programme in the coming weeks.

Easy, Reliable and Scalable API Support

Our elastic API service is a globally distributed service that ensures your users receive the lowest latency service possible. We have been serving over 1 Billion JSON RPC requests to our public API service every day at 99.99% uptime target.

Connect in seconds to enterprise grade endpoints that scale infinitely and rely on archive nodes to provide full history of the chain.
