Introducing Hydra.

Decentralized API access to any blockchain, built on the Blocknet Protocol.

Get started with Hydra

Hydra is a decentralized drop-in replacement for Infura.
Its decentralized architecture is highly scalable and provides a foundation for a truly decentralized dApp ecosystem.

Blockchain Connector

Hydra enables easy connection for developers to access accurate and reliable blockchain information.

Powered by the Blocknet's XRouter protocol, Hydra provides users with an all-in-one solution for blockchain data, including Ethereum.

Fast Access

Access to some blockchains such as Ethereum require incredibly large amounts of data, storage, long sync times and ongoing maintenance, which carry high costs.

Hydra provides instant access to blockchain data with a simple drop-in URL. Developers can begin accessing blockchain data without any of the drawbacks of hosting their own nodes.

Archival Data

Running an Ethereum archival node is an extremely costly exercise and requires terabytes of storage space on fast drives. Multiple archival nodes run on Hydra, removing the barrier to entry for all developers.

Decentralized

Blockchain service providers are typically trusted intermediaries.
In contrast, Hydra is a completely decentralized solution which protects the network from downtime and points of attack.

Service Providers

Hydra is designed to allow anyone to potentially deploy and run a Hydra endpoint service. This can be a profitable activity for those that want to support the Hydra infrastructure.

Hydra FAQ

How do I get started as a service provider?

The easiest way to get started is by using the Hydra docker compose file on Github

What kind of hardware is recommended as a service provider?

All blockchains require different levels of hardware but for GETH support it is recommended minimum 8vCPU, 16GB RAM, SSD for archival node.

How do I get started as a developer?

Have a read of the Hydra API docs and join the Blocknet Discord if you have any questions.

How are fees paid or collected?

Hydra users will be able to send a request with a payment in ETH or aBLOCK to service nodes in return for a project ID and API. This allows developers to make requests to the Blocknet network based on how much they paid.
