Welcome to the club: Solana, Terra, Arbitrum joined GetBlock’s ecosystem

Team of GetBlock, a top-tier blockchain nodes provider, is thrilled to celebrate the most impressive addition to its offerings stack in recent months. Over Q1, 2022, a number of mainstream smart contracts platforms was added to its toolkit including the likes of Solana, Terra, and Arbitrum.

Solana (SOL) and Terra (LUNA) are two largest smart contract environments outside of the Ethereum (ETH) scene. Arbitrum is a low-cost Ethereum-based L2 scalability solution based on Optimistic Rollups.

For all three newcomers, our team rolled out shared and dedicated nodes; the blockchains can be accessed through JSON RPC, REST API and WebSockets methods. All APIs for Solana, Terra, and Arbitrum are now available with 98-99 percent uptime.

By adding these solutions, GetBlock accomplishes a crucial milestone on its way to building a multi-network, decentralized future of Web3. Having integrated different blockchains into one stack, it is able to offer its new and existing clients Web3 solutions with unmatched levels of flexibility and interoperability.
GetBlock offers one-stop solution for all top-tier DeFi platforms

Invented by Anatoly Yakovenko in 2017, Solana (SOL), with its unique Proof-of-History (PoH) consensus promotes itself as a most eccentric and powerful Ethereum (ETH) killer. Its peak bandwidth eclipses 70,000 TPS, as per the team’s estimations.

Terra (LUNA) gained huge popularity in 2021; its aggregated TVL jumped by 1,000 per cent while LUNA price rocketed 100x. Largely, this popularity should be attributed to the amazing APY offered by its flagship DeFi Anchor Protocol (ANC) on TerraUSD (UST) staking.

Arbitrum is a second-layer solution for Ethereum (ETH) scalability. It reduces the transactional pressure on Ethereum (ETH) mainnet by sending β€˜compressed’ information through Optimistic Rollups mechanism. Its activation gave Ethereum (ETH) throughput a 300x boost whilst transactional fees in Arbitrum remain among the lowest in the industry.

GetBlock offers reliable and resource-efficient connection to shared and dedicated nodes of 40+ blockchains. Also, GetBlock creates node clusters and customized explorers for decentralized systems of all types.
