We at the Ethereum Classic Cooperative are happy to unveil Ethercluster, a much-needed project we have been working on for a while.
Ethercluster is an open-sourced Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) Remote Procedure Call (RPC) providing Ethereum Classic (ETC) and Kotti endpoints for free. It does so using the latest cutting-edge infra-as-code technologies such as Kubernetes, Terraform and Docker. It also scales easily with increased usage and demand.
The Ethercluster website provides information and the endpoints, while the docs teach how to build it from scratch so you can run your own infrastructure.
The main motivations behind building our own RPC endpoint infrastructure is due to not having Infura include Ethereum Classic as an option to connect to. That coupled with wait times to actually integrate with Infura, as well as wanting to provide a reliable, scalable and open-sourced alternative to Infura for not only Ethereum Classic but also any EVM-based network was the main reason we pushed to build this.
Ethercluster serves both as a free endpoint for Kotti and ETC as well as a design specification for building scalable blockchain infrastructure for others. You can use the endpoint provided by us at the ETC Cooperative or check out our docs to building your blockchain infrastructure.
Our documentation will have you learning to build your own node infrastructure in the cloud that can scale easily in no time. That’s right, you’d be able to run an Ethereum-based Ethercluster following our docs if you want. Also, you can modify the manifests and specs in the docs to target your specific needs, even ones not related to EVMs (Hint: You can essentially build your own scalable Proof-of-Stake node infrastructure with ease by building upon Ethercluster).
Our Ethercluster design specs first target a few things. We build our cloud ...
