Relay Recap #102 options Polygon reclaiming the #1 spot, Arbitrum One RPC visitors lifting off, and several other massive strikes on the relays per node rankings. This recap covers stats from February 9 – February 15.
Joyful Friday! We’re again with one other Relay Recap.
This week, we noticed an enormous swing on the prime, as Polygon jumped Ethereum to reclaim the #1 spot for essentially the most relays serviced by Pocket Community. The 2 chains went in reverse instructions, as Polygon grew its complete relays considerably and went from a 26% share to a 32% share, whereas Ethereum had a drop in relays that took it from a 28% share to a 17% share.
DFKchain, BSC, and Concord had been a few of the different massive gainers within the Prime 10 chains this week. Past a few of these bigger sources of relays, we noticed sturdy progress from a number of of our different supported chains, as we noticed the “Others” portion of the Relay Distribution chart bump up considerably (from a 7% share of complete relays to an 11% share).
On that word, we had been excited to see main progress from Arbitrum One RPC visitors this week, one in every of our extra not too long ago allowlisted chains. You may see the checklist of Chain Highlights beneath to get a greater really feel for a few of the different chains that stood out this week as properly.
Total, relays had been nearly flat in comparison with final week, with a marginal lower that was due largely to a dip in Ethereum relays. This dip from ETH performed a big half within the drop beneath 1 billion complete relays on February tenth. After that time, although, day by day relays trended principally up for the remainder of the interval, together with a push all the best way over 1.3 billion on the thirteenth.
All through this era, the community serviced a median of 1.162 billion day by day relays. The day by day excessive for this time interval was recorded at 1.325 billion on February thirteenth.
Total, 8.13 billion relays had been serviced through the week. This was a 0.4% lower from the 8.17 billion relays the prior week.
Under are a few of the chains with the highest week-over-week relay progress. Photos courtesy of POKTscan!

From February ninth by means of February fifteenth, we had Polygon fly previous Ethereum when it comes to POKT earnings, because of Polygon’s progress in weekly relays and Ethereum’s corresponding drop. Polygon has now opened up a large margin, with DFKchain rounding out the Prime 3 behind Ethereum.
DFKchain additionally established a bit extra separation between it and Gnosis – xDai (which had 547.2k POKT earnings for the week), after a number of weeks by which the 2 chains had been just about tied for the #3 spot on this metric.
When it comes to common day by day relays per node, we noticed the next chains make the Prime 15 checklist.
As proven above, the three massive strikes to pay attention to had been Polygon Archival, Arbitrum One, and Klaytn.
Within the case of Polygon Archival, the chain was capable of fly into the Prime 5 because of a virtually 900% improve in relays this week. That improve was due to an enormous spike in relays on February thirteenth (proven within the Chain Highlights part above).
In the meantime, Arbitrum One RPC visitors was up greater than 1,000%, whereas the variety of nodes servicing the chain truly decreased from 228 to 161 as properly. These two components mixed (extra relays divided amongst much less nodes) helped rocket the chain up 24 spots and into the Prime 10.
Lastly, provide and demand took over for Klaytn – after a spot within the Prime 5 final week, the variety of node runners servicing the chain grew almost 300%, whereas relays stayed nearly precisely flat. This bumped Klaytn down 10 spots, though it nonetheless held on to a spot within the Prime 15.
As of February fifteenth, Pocket Community’s decentralized infrastructure included 21,233 energetic nodes throughout greater than 25 completely different nations, permitting the community to supply fixed uptime and resiliency whereas supporting dozens of various chains.
This complete node rely was up about 0.3% from the earlier week.
Be aware: PIP-22 and PUP-19 introduced massive adjustments to the incentives that form Pocket’s node infrastructure, by means of introducing stake-weighted servicer rewards and elevated validator rewards. We’ll possible proceed seeing a consolidation of nodes, as node runners and suppliers mix stakes to make the most of these incentive buildings that had been rolled out in v0.9.0.
New Collaborations This Week
We had been additionally excited to announce some new collaborations and integrations this week, with each Bankless Card and Unstoppable Domains.
With Bankless Card, we at the moment are working with them to decentralize a part of their dApp’s vital RPC infrastructure. By tapping into Pocket’s fleet of nodes, funds and different transactions associated to Bankless Card can change into extra censorship-resistant and immutable. You may learn extra in regards to the information and take a look at our latest AMA with the Bankless DAO crew.
We additionally introduced a brand new integration with Unstoppable Domains within the Pocket Pockets. Now, you may go to the Unstoppable Domains web site, register a site of your selection, and use it instead of an extended, complicated pockets handle to ship $POKT funds and transfers. The area is yours endlessly, with no renewal charges, and helps you are taking management and possession of your personal digital identification.
Polygon completes its transfer again into the #1 spot.
Arbitrum One RPC visitors begins to take off.
Polygon Archival has an enormous 1-day spike that takes it into the Prime 5 for common relays per node.
Various relay progress throughout networks, as 9 different chains publish at the least 20% relay progress.
Asserting a brand new collaboration with Bankless Card, and a brand new integration with Unstoppable Domains within the Pocket Pockets.
Thanks for studying!
