Archive Node

MegaNode provides archive data and debugs API on archive node. This document describe the detailed information about how it works in MegaNode


Archive node is available on BNB Chain, Ethereum, ETH Beacon Chain, Polygon, AVAX C-Chain now!

The archive node has all the historical data of the blockchain. In some cases, if you need to access the data from earlier blocks, you will need to access the archive node. It requires huge storage to run an archive node, and typically due to this huge amount of data, it takes a longer time to process.

MegaNode provides industry-leading capabilities for archive node on BSC. It is the fastest and always consistent. Here is the response time on different percentiles and QPS for BSC.
