Frequently Asked Questions
Our docs are always a work in progress, but we may not have all use cases covered yet. So we are going to keep a running list of frequently-asked questions here until we can incorporate them more fully into our documentation.
Is Chainstarters cloud-agnostic?
Yes. Currently, we are only hosted on AWS, but the platform itself has been designed to be cloud-agnostic, and we are working towards gtting on Google Cloud and Azure so that we can offer our users options. And who doesn't love options?!
Is Chainstarters chain-agnostic?
Also yes. Right now, we have a private fork of Ethereum, but we have also created a template for Solana. We will be adding more blockchains, and they will be prioritized based on user requests/demand.
Can I identify users and their role inside each API?
We don't have roles set up for end users at this time, but both authentication options that we offer allow for metadata to separate users into different groups.
Can I fully develop and test locally before doing deployments?
Yes. The only thing you are unable to test locally is the Redis cluster because it's in a private VPC, accessible only by the remote API. However, writing tests is super simple. You just have to deploy them to the remote dev environment before promoting to prod.
