We developed a new system “Node Toller” (experimental product.)
This make you able to let blockchain REST clients pay toll for using REST.
What is our concern
We are concerned about the centralization to REST endpoint server like “Infura.”
Since Symbol has a very good REST endpoint system, the centralization must be prevented.
Furthermore, todays nodes which support REST with HTTPS connection are supporting it with there kindness.
More to say, disclosing REST endpoint is of kindness. It is not a obligation.
Nodes which support HTTPS connection enable us to use HTTPS web application using Symbol. So we should create some incentive for node to disclose REST endpoint and support HTTPS.
Symbol is a trustless network so we shouldn’t use obligation or kindness, but incentive.
[Blockchain REST endpoint] | (port xxx) | <Opening for all or inconvenience restriction like IP criteria> | [Clients]
[Blockchain REST endpoint] | | |(port yyy) | | |<Opening for all with toll> | | |[Clients] | (port xxx) | <Your favorite allowance which includes denying all> | [Clients]
We want to test it abroad and distribute it as a shared source program.
If you can cooperate with us to do testing, plz join.
