We have been lately working on a way to allow developers and λ users to easily fetch or get the list or RPCs and Seeds that are operating the Steem blockchain. There are currently several places where you can get more information on this matter such as SteemWorld, SteemScan, or Steemyy.com. Hence, we have decided to take it one notch further by providing lists that are constantly maintained, tested, and updated. In addition to providing public APIs for the community to use.
We encourage all current seeds and public RPCs owners to add or update the data directly on our website by sending a form.
There are currently several
Get methodpublic APIs that can be used on the Ecosynthesiezr website:
Fetching static data will allow you to get a pretested list of functional seed and PRC nodes. The current interval of testing is 3 minutes. You have also 3 choices to use which are:
On the other hand, fetching live data will allow you to afresh the test of the PRC and seed nodes. Depending on the size of the list, it will obviously take a bit longer (few more seconds) to get fresh data:
Same as with the static method, this method will only show functional RPCs and Seeds, the red status is pushed for the RPCs if the response time is higher than 6000ms (subject to a possible change). To make it even easier for admins to manage the lists, we also implemented a dashboard to deal with requests and update the data. The initial version of the project allowed users to create accounts, but we decided to scrap it for now until we are done with the implementation of a better system of registration.
This is of course just the beginning, we are planning to add more things and work on more projects. If you have suggestions, want to report a bug, or you want to work with us, please make sure to leave a comment below or reach out to us on Discord.
