RPC nodes

What to consider when choosing a node

  • Trust: Choose a node that you can trust the people who operate it.
    • It should not alter your requests, for example, changing the operation data before forging it.
    • It should not censor your operations; you want to know that your operations will reach the network.
  • Reliability: Consider your requirements for uptime, and choose your node option accordingly. If node availability is critical for your user-case, consider self-hosting a node or contracting someone to operate a node specifically for you.
  • End-points support: Public nodes have different policies on the end-points that they expose. Your use case may require specific end-points to be available to your app. We have made a suite of integration tests for the Taquito RPC package. These tests show what RPC end-points are available on a given node. These tests are available here: integration-tests/rpc-nodes.spec.ts.

How to run a node

Running a node is a good way of contributing to Tezos by increasing the decentralization of the network.

There are many ways to set up a node. Here are some links providing general instructions:
