  1. A requirement for an intermediate tier between the Free and Pro plans.
  2. A desire for a more flexible 'pay-as-you-go' option.
  3. An opportunity for us to accommodate more requests through a more efficient infrastructure.

Based on these insights, we're excited to announce the introduction of a pay-as-you-go feature using Compute Unit Credit (CUC), and to share details about modifications to our pricing plans.

Understanding Compute Units and Compute Unit Creditโ€‹

A Compute Unit (CU) serves as a standard measurement that quantifies the computational expense incurred during an API call. It's akin to how AWS charges for compute usage. The computational cost varies depending on the intensity of the queries โ€“ some are lightweight and fast (e.g., eth_blockNumber) while others can be more demanding (e.g., large eth_getLogs queries). The cost in CU for each request across different products can be found in our API marketplace.

Compute Unit Credits (CUC) are like credit card rewards on our platform to serve as royalty points. Those points are identical to compute units. Developers could spend CUC on our platform to get extra quotas for API calls.

Implementing Pay-As-You-Go with CUCโ€‹

We'll set up a reward account for each customer. Customers can load this account with CUC, which will then be consumed as per their API usage.

  • For the Free tier, we ensure a minimum balance of 0.3 CUC at the start of each month.
  • For the paid tiers (Basic, Pro, Enterprise 50), we will credit the account on each subscription or renewal.

We do not allow customer to withdraw CUC for now.

The credits on will be reconciled daily and also each time a withdrawal or deposit is made. maintains the rights to the Compute Units (CU) on our platform, along with the authority to clarify the application of the API and the usage of credits.
