RockX Joins Elrond As Staking Provider And Broadens Access To Elrond Data Via Its API Infrastructure
We’re excited to announce that RockX, the leading Asia-based blockchain infrastructure provider, is expanding its API services to Elrond. The integration will go live in the following weeks and will unlock a new source of data for developers building at internet-scale, all manageable through one intuitive interface.
Making on-chain data easier to access by builders to power their dApps removes the need of deploying and maintaining their own infrastructure and radically reduces the associated costs. RockX’s API solution will include a free plan to help projects explore their tools and capabilities, among customizable plans based on needs to scale.
Moreover, RockX is already leveraging their experience and expertise around PoS protocols with their recently opened staking pool that is accepting delegations in EGLD.
“RockX is excited to join Elrond's validator ecosystem, providing enterprise-grade access node infrastructure to web3 developers and supporting the new internet economy. We're excited to see where this partnership takes us as Elrond pushes blockchain technology to greater heights.” said ZhuLing Chen, RockX CEO.
“Aside from contributing to our data availability decentralization by expanding the range of options for on-chain data, the RockX collaboration also marks an important addition to our validator ecosystem, further widening the span of staking options our community can choose from.” said Lucian Mincu, Elrond Network CIO.
Elrond is the internet-scale blockchain, designed from scratch to bring a 1000-fold cumulative improvement in throughput and execution speed. To achieve this, Elrond introduces two key innovations: a novel Adaptive State Sharding mechanism, and a Secure Proof of Stake (PoS) algorithm, enabling linear scalability with a fast, efficient, and secure consensus mechanism. Thus, Elrond can process upwards of 15,000 transactions per second (TPS), with 6-second latency, and negligible cost, attempting to become the backbone of a permissionless, borderless, globally accessible internet economy.
RockX is a blockchain fintech company that helps users embrace Web3 effortlessly through the development of innovative products and infrastructure. In recent years, the company has built access node APIs for popular Layer 1 and 2 protocols for developers, and helped companies to seamlessly access and interact with blockchains.
