Going Beyond Bitcoin: Using BSC and Solana RPC for Crypto Transactions


Crypto nodes allow users to get the most out of blockchain technology. By giving access to the blockchain API (application programming interface), nodes operate effectively under different conditions. The interest for node implementation grows exponentially, and we are here for it. We have spoken about Ethereum and Bitcoin nodes several times. Today let’s take a look at BSC RPC nodes and Solana RPC nodes hosted by GetBlock. How can you use them and what can you expect?

RPC nodes explained

The function of decentralized applications (dApps) rely on data from blockchain networks to fulfill user requests. Decentralized software can’t function independently; it needs a connection to a blockchain in order to respond to user requests. Remote procedure calls, also known as RPC nodes, are a useful feature for tying together dApps to blockchain networks.

RPC nodes make it possible for web3 applications to communicate with blockchain technology and to access user data more easily. You may be wondering what RPC actually means. Are Remote Procedure Calls and standard blockchain nodes the same thing?

No, the Remote Procedure Call, or RPC, is a simple communication protocol that makes it easier for software applications to interact with each other. RPC’s main purpose is to enable communication between on-chain software and remote programs housed on different networks. Most importantly, RPC calls do not necessitate any knowledge of the server network. Any person could make a request for various resources from a remote server system via an RPC from their local computer.

RPCs instruct the server to run a reliable operation after the client has completed the request. Decentralized apps require blockchain data for effective functionality, which makes the relationship between RPC nodes and blockchains abundantly clear. These decentralized apps operate as the client in the RPC client-server model, while the RPC node acts in place of the server.

Take a look at the different types of RPC nodes:

What is BSC RPC?

BSC sets itself apart in a number of ways to provide access to a greater degree of functionality and utility for developers. The addition of smart contract features and complete interoperability with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) also help to achieve this.

BSC RPC is easily accessible via a service like GetBlock. By choosing between shared and dedicated node options, you can easily make use of BNB Smart Chain’s test- and mainnet. Shared BSC PRC nodes are a great choice for supercharging the development of your dApp, especially if you are only a beginner or a smaller-budget project. Besides, you can test out your web3 product under realistic blockchain conditions by benefiting from GetBlock’s 40,000 free daily requests.

If, however, you want to specify your node requirements, you may want to opt for a dedicated BSC RPC node. Here, you get access to the BSC mainnet using API keys that ensure frictionless and cost-efficient connection. You can select the desired API method (JSON RPC or WebSockets). Moreover, there’s 24/7 online technical support available to answer any of your questions.

What is Solana RPC?

The Solana blockchain can also be accessed by using RPC requests. Solana RPC nodes are designed to handle the requests; they are often devoted to the job rather than taking part in consensus. It’s crucial to have RPC infrastructure that can handle the workload to provide your users with an excellent experience and demonstrate Solana’s speed and low latency.

GetBlock is offering free access to Solana RPC nodes via its shared node option with a limited number of daily requests. Be aware that you get what you pay for – or, in this case you don’t. The majority of free services do not offer autoscaling, have rate limits, provide no SLA, and so on. However, if you want a privately designed Solana RPC, then it’s time to try GetBlock’s Solana (SOL) dedicated nodes. This will provide you the ability to autoscale based on demand, enjoy the unlimited number of requests, and feel secure in the knowledge that your dApp is in good hands.

Closing thoughts 

Both BSC RPC and Solana RPC nodes are a great tool for optimizing your decentralized application. With the help of GetBlock you are guaranteed a safe and reliable solution to product scalability and overall performance.
