Relay Recap #103 brings a brand new weekly all-time excessive for serviced relays, large progress from Ethereum RPC site visitors, and a transfer up the ranks for Concord and OEC . This recap covers stats from February 16 – February 22.
Blissful Friday! We’re again with one other Relay Recap, and this one brings a brand new milestone.
Thanks partly to a giant surge from Ethereum RPC site visitors this week, we’re pleased to share a brand new all-time excessive within the variety of weekly relays service by Pocket Community! The 9.05 billion relays serviced this week edged out the earlier all-time excessive from October 2022, and represented the primary week by which the community cleared the 9 billion weekly relay mark.
Talking of Ethereum, we’re additionally pumped to be kicking off #BUIDLWeek at ETHDenver in the present day! We’ve two completely different bounties up for grabs, and we’ve shared a Hacker Information that has every little thing you could begin constructing with your personal decentralized endpoint and take dwelling a kind of bounties for your self.
On prime of the massive week from Ethereum RPC site visitors, we had Metis greater than tripling its relays from the prior week, and 9 different chains posting double-digit proportion progress.
Relays had been at their excessive level early within the week, earlier than a slight dip to round 1.25 billion day by day relays for the rest of the interval.
Whereas the rankings for common day by day relays per node stayed the identical on the prime, we had a number of sizable strikes elsewhere throughout the Prime 15 chart. Extra on that beneath!
All through this era, the community serviced a mean of 1.292 billion day by day relays. The day by day excessive for this time interval was recorded at 1.343 billion on February sixteenth.
Total, 9.05 billion relays had been serviced in the course of the week. This was an 11% improve from the 8.13 billion relays the prior week.
Under are a few of the chains with the highest week-over-week relay progress. Pictures courtesy of POKTscan!

From February sixteenth via February twenty second, we had Ethereum make up floor on Polygon when it comes to whole POKT earnings, whereas DFKchain got here in a extra distant third than final week. Identical to the prior interval, we had Gnosis -xDai pushing DFKchain for the #3 spot, because the chain had about 480k in POKT earnings of its personal.
When it comes to common day by day relays per node, we noticed the next chains make the Prime 15 listing.
Whereas we had no change within the prime 4 this week, we noticed three noteworthy strikes from Concord, Arbitrum One, and OEC.
For Concord, the chain’s 26% progress in weekly relays moved it into the Prime 10 for common day by day relays per node, even with the variety of node runners servicing the chain bumping up barely this week.
In the meantime, Arbitrum One relays got here again down after an enormous spike final week. The lower in relays, mixed with the variety of node runners servicing the chain practically doubling, bumped Arbitrum One down 6 spots on these rankings.
Lastly, OEC’s 32% improve in relays mixed with barely much less node runners servicing the chain helped it leap up 6 spots and declare the final place on this listing, after rating within the 20’s the prior week.
As of February twenty second, Pocket Community’s decentralized infrastructure included 21,534 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 whole node depend was up about 1.4% from the earlier week.
Be aware: PIP-22 and PUP-19 introduced large adjustments to the incentives that form Pocket’s node infrastructure, by the use of introducing stake-weighted servicer rewards and elevated validator rewards. We’ll doubtless proceed seeing a consolidation of nodes, as node runners and suppliers mix stakes to make the most of these incentive constructions that had been rolled out in v0.9.0.
A brand new all-time excessive in weekly relays, because the 9 billion mark is cleared for the primary time.
Ethereum RPC relays leap 50%, and the chain provides 7% to its share of whole community relays.
Metis greater than triples its weekly relays.
Concord and OEC transfer up the rankings for common day by day relays per node, whereas Arbitrum One drops out of the Prime 10.
Thanks for studying – and pleased buidling at ETHDenver!
