How it Works

Nodesmith is a drop-in replacement for an Aion Kernel. Simply point your code at Nodesmith's servers instead of your node. Leave the work of installing the kernel (only available on Ubuntu), running it 24/7, and keeping the software updated to us. Nodesmith hosts multiple Aion kernels around the world and provides our users access to this infrastructure.

JavaScript Code Example
const Web3 = require('aion-web3');

// Create our web3 instance pointing to Nodesmith
const web3 = new Web3(new Web3.providers.HttpProvider(
  'https://aion.api.nodesmith.io/v1/mainnet/jsonrpc?apiKey=YOUR_API_KEY'
));

const interestingAccount = '0xa00338aeb0fb1c8a47c215a0a9daece90bedc406dc31e905788a4f3d83a33943';

// Use the web3 instance to get an account's balance
web3.eth.getBalance(interestingAccount).then((balance) => {
  console.log('Balance is ' + balance);
});
