Revolutionizing Transaction Efficiency with the Multi-Chain Gas Station

The Multi-Chain Gas Station is more than a data tracking tool; it’s a solution to one of the most persistent challenges in blockchain transactions — the indefinite pending state. By integrating this tool into CLI tools, Web3 Infrastructure, and other backend services, we offer a new level of transaction efficiency. This integration ensures that transactions submitted to blockchains are processed with optimal gas estimates, significantly reducing the likelihood of transactions getting stuck in a pending state.

The Power of Real-Time, Queryable Data

At the core of the Multi-Chain Gas Station’s functionality is its ability to provide real-time, queryable data across multiple blockchain networks. This feature is crucial for users who need current and accurate gas price information for their transactions. By aggregating data from various sources and offering insights into historical trends, the Multi-Chain Gas Station becomes an indispensable tool for anyone navigating the blockchain space.

Introducing the Open Source Log Store Node

We’re proud to announce that the Log Store Node and Network technology is now completely open source. This decentralised data lake for verifiable data is not just a resource; it’s a testament to our commitment to transparency and community collaboration. The open-source nature of the Log Store Node allows anyone to review and utilize our technology to its fullest potential.

Standalone Operation of the Log Store Node

In a significant advancement, the Log Store Node can now be operated in a standalone manner. This means that the verifiable columnar database powered by our technology is now more accessible than ever. With immediate out-of-the-box storage capabilities, data transported over the Streamr Network — a reliable real-time peer-to-peer pub/sub network — can be seamlessly integrated and stored.

Next Steps: Enhancing Verifiability and Accessibility

Our journey doesn’t stop here. Usher Labs continues to research ways to ensure the verifiability of third-party data and simplify the operation of the Log Store Node. We believe that these enhancements will further democratize access to reliable, verifiable blockchain and off-chain data.
