NodeReal Provides Scalable Infrastructure Solutions With Strong Price Performance for Web3 Development

Find out how NodeReal came to support about 70 percent of all public Remote Procedure Calls for BNB Chain, a Layer-1 blockchain supporting leading cryptocurrency exchanges and other Web3 applications, within 12 months of its founding.


NodeReal is a blockchain infrastructure and services provider that offers one-stop blockchain infrastructure services including full-fledged node services, blockchain as a service, and blockchain application tools and Application Programming Interface (API). Founded in 2021, NodeReal onboarded around 10,000 developers within its first 12 months, including projects such as BNB Chain, Aptos, CoinMarketCap, CertiK, Galxe, Trust Wallet, and ApeSwap.

NodeReal is fully built and deployed on Amazon Web Services (AWS), which helps to maintain performance, stability, and scalability of its blockchain infrastructure. The company now handles 700,000 API requests per second from its Web3 customers. Furthermore, it supports 70 percent of all public API requests for the BNB Chain, making it the leading blockchain infrastructure provider for Web3 companies on the BNB Chain.


Striking a Balance Between Performance, Stability, and Scalability

Most of NodeReal’s Web3 customers develop decentralized, throughput-intensive applications for end-users, such as Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), decentralized finance (DeFi) wallets, and play-to-earn blockchain games (GameFi). One such customer is Trust Wallet, a multi-chain universal crypto wallet that has over 5,000,000 active users weekly.

As such, NodeReal built its blockchain infrastructure on the AWS Cloud, which is able to scale to deliver robust performance and reliability for high throughput requirements.


Thanks to the high performance global network and cloud services from AWS, NodeReal has achieved its vision ‘Make Your Web3 Real’, and built the fastest and most reliable blockchain infrastructure for Web3 builders across the world.”

Creating a Conducive Environment for Web3 Development

On AWS, NodeReal’s customers can deliver faster transactions for their end-users on the blockchain with more responsive applications.

NodeReal uses AWS Graviton2-based instances, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and AWS Managed Services for better price performance. NodeReal was also able to save money and resources by building on the AWS Cloud, as it did not have to secure physical servers and storage.

It deploys Amazon Aurora to automatically scale its database across multiple regions to support its global customers, and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) to manage its container-based applications running in the Kubernetes open-source orchestration system. Combined with AWS Global Accelerator, which improves global application availability and performance, it maintains consistently low latencies for its customers and end-users.


Helping NodeReal Become a Major Player in the Decentralized Economy

By running on AWS, NodeReal provides its customers with a high-performing, stable, and scalable environment to build Web3-based applications. This has helped grow its customer base to over 10,000 worldwide within the first 12 months of its founding in September 2021.

“Thanks to the high performance global network and cloud services from AWS, NodeReal has achieved its vision ‘Make Your Web3 Real’, and built the fastest and most reliable blockchain infrastructure for Web3 builders across the world,” says Jimmy Zhao, technology solutions director at NodeReal.

NodeReal will next introduce a one-stop blockchain platform to help its customers build their own chains, as well as Layer-2 blockchains to support high-speed transactions. The company will also aim to build an open and community-driven API marketplace for Web3 developers.
