BELLEVUE, Wash., April 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- ArcBlock has officially released the ABT Blockchain Node, the world's simplest blockchain node software to help users, businesses, and developers manage and run their DApps, and blockchain-enabled services easily.
ABT Node is cloud native and a key component of ArcBlock's end-to-end blockchain development platform that combines all the tools and services needed to build, run and use decentralized applications including a pluggable development framework, on-chain governance, integrated decentralized identity (DID), and runs on top of the ABT Network that is an interconnected chain network designed to continuously grow and expand the maximum number of chains supported on the network.
Starting today, users can now download ArcBlock's ABT Node online from their website, or choose to deploy cloud nodes from several certified cloud computing partners including Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, Upyun, and AURO. ABT Node is the first blockchain node software that is easy to install as a typical application. Using ABT Nodes, ArcBlock is the first blockchain platform provider to use ABT Nodes and demonstrate how to use Spot Instances from AWS to build a production-ready blockchain network reducing costs by as much as 90% compared to traditional networks and has recently distributed several articles showing developers how to deploy hundreds of ABT Nodes using a few commands.
ABT Node isn't just another blockchain node, instead, it represents a significant shift in what blockchains node are able to do. "Rather than just create mining nodes or centralized nodes that require some type of hub or relay to work, we want ArcBlock's platform to be practical, useful and to solve real-world problems," said VP of Engineering Tyr Chen. "We want users to have an exceptional experience and to be in control of their data. ABT Nodes are the first fully decentralized blockchain nodes designed for edge computing and combine the power of cloud computing with an easy-to-use web server with instant metrics and analytics, essential developer tools to debug, query and simulate different app scenarios, and lets a user connect their services and applications to the ABT Network."
One of the key features of the ABT Node is the focus on usability and experience. The ABT Node Admin Console is designed to be familiar and user-friendly. Users and Miners can launch applications or services, become a service provider to support other users, connect to other users and networks, or launch DApps from the marketplace. Out of the box, the ABT Node is decentralized, and production ready with built-in fault tolerance, automatic updates, and easy node migration.
ABT Nodes can be set up in less than a minute and are able to connect with peers, or to the ABT Network to deliver applications, services, and other activities publicly. Visit www.arcblock.io/en/node to start today.
