We’ve been breaking down how Portal’s decentralized RPC service is the ideal solution for crypto wallet development, delivering benefits that can’t be matched by other providers.
Here, we’ll take a look at Portal’s focus on uptime and reliability, and how it’s serving wallets. Make sure to check out some of our other wallet-focused insights as well, including how Portal is delivering easy multichain support and seamless scalability to wallet developers.
Web3 wallets demand the highest level of uptime and reliability with their RPC service. It’s a necessity to provide users with uninterrupted access to blockchain data and transactions.
Portal, the decentralized RPC service built on Pocket Network, delivers just that. It’s the perfect choice for wallet developers looking for a dependable infrastructure partner.
Let’s explore the specific advantages that Portal’s RPC service brings to wallets.
Unparalleled redundancy for wallets
Pocket Network is the decentralized infrastructure protocol that Portal is built on top of. The network leverages a globally distributed fleet of more than 20,000 nodes across nearly 30 countries. These 20,000 nodes are spread between individual node runners, larger node operators, and a mixture of node configurations. All of this helps to provide true decentralization and redundancy to Portal’s RPC service. This translates into greater than 99% uptime for wallet apps, ensuring users always have access to their digital assets. With maxed out uptime, users can perform transactions without interruption.
Wallets of any size, from newly launched projects all the way up to the most popular and highly trafficked wallets, benefit from this redundancy. They can maintain consistent performance and accessibility, even during periods of high network activity or outages with other centralized services.
Diversification of service domains
Pocket Network nodes operate across a wide range of service domains, with no single provider dominating the market. No service domain currently holds more than a 16% share of staked POKT. Even if one domain experiences issues, the remaining diversified domains ensure continued, reliable service for wallet apps.
Wallet developers can be confident that their applications will not be negatively impacted by a single point of failure. This ultimately results in a more robust and dependable wallet experience for end users.
Redundancy within service sessions
When wallets utilize Portal’s RPC service to tap into Pocket Network, they are assigned to hour-long sessions. These sessions consist of 24 different nodes responsible for servicing their data relays. This redundancy brings uninterrupted uptime, even if some nodes experience difficulties during a session.
For wallets, this is an important component of maintaining a smooth user experience and ensuring transactions are processed efficiently.
Quality of service controls
The node selection logic in the Pocket Network protocol also implements quality checks within sessions. This takes care of issues such as improper staking, out-of-sync block heights, underperforming nodes, and nodes struggling under high loads. These checks prioritize the most performant nodes, resulting in unstoppable uptime and optimized user experience for wallets and their end users.
With well-tuned QoS controls like these, developers can ensure that their wallets always deliver accurate balance information and rapid transaction confirmations to users.
High relay success rate
In part due to the QoS controls mentioned above, Portal’s RPC service consistently achieves upwards of a 99.5% relay success rate across the network. It’s the definition of dependability for wallets that require constant access to blockchain data.
Wallet users can rely on their dApps to provide accurate, up-to-date information on transactions, balances, and other critical data. This ensures a seamless experience when managing their digital assets.
Fast global access for users
Pocket Network nodes are spread across more than 15 distinct regions all around the globe. Portal’s decentralized RPC service ensures wallets provide fast and reliable connections to users worldwide, creating a seamless experience for those managing their digital assets.
Wallets with diverse user bases spread all over the globe can offer consistently low latency and high-speed data access to users from different regions. Portal helps to bring the most responsive user experience, regardless of location.
