Series of AMAs with great projects

December was, indeed, a busy month for GetBlock. Our team held several AMA (“Ask Me Anything”) sessions. We value our guests for their time and knowledge that they shared with us. Additionally, the GetBlock team wants to thank our listeners for tuning in and asking interesting questions. Hopefully, we were able to answer all of them!

AMA with Arbitrum

In this AMA session, our Arbitrum interviewee, Nina, answered the most exciting questions related to the Arbitrum community, e.g. “How to become an Arbitrum newbie developer?”, “What’s the biggest advantage of arb over the other three L2s?” and many more. You still have a chance to give a listen to the recorded version of the AMA.

AMA with Tron

GetBlock hosted this XMas AMA with the amazing Laurent Parello, who talked about the main use-cases of Tron, its marketing strategy and the security details. GetBlock also had a chance to answer a few questions regarding UI/UX and our main benefits. It’s safe to say, you won’t regret listening to this conversation.

Video on how to connect to a node

In December our long-time users and newcomers received two new guides on how to deploy shared nodes with the help of GetBlock’s infrastructure.

Arbitrum

Here, GetBlock users can learn how to connect to Arbitrum nodes in a few easy steps.

The example shows how to perform a ‘eth_blocknumber’ command designed to return the number of the most recent block.

GetBlock Activates Major Privacy Upgrade: Now Users Sign Up via Crypto Wallets

Starting this month, GetBlock users can set up an account by using an Ethereum (ETH) wallet. This way, our clients are not required to share email addresses and other sensitive data to start deploying blockchain nodes.

GetBlock prioritizes the principles of lawfulness, fairness, and transparency in data issues. In addition, IP-addresses tracking has been implemented into GetBlock’s Privacy Policy since November 2022.
