Fiews is offering an Ethereum as a Service (EaaS) tailored specifically for Chainlink nodes. To demonstrate the capabilities of this service, Fiews is offering a free trial to the Ethereum testnet for a limited amount of Chainlink node operators.

To get started, simply sign up for an account in the Fiews Dashboard and point your Chainlink node to the secure WebSockets endpoint defined above with your API key.
We have made it easy to copy and paste the entries to the
.env file too – just make sure you remove any previous entry for
ETH_URL. Also make sure you have specified the correct chain id and link contract address. When you start your node, it should be pointing to our load-balanced Ethereum nodes! That's all you have to do!
.envfile! You can also remove the
--link ethflag if you are using this.
To verify that it's working as intended, monitor your Chainlink logs and check that new headers are being received. If they are – you are connected succesfully to the Ethereum testnet through Fiews' nodes!
If you have any questions, send an email to [email protected].
Fiews will be offering this service on mainnet when Chainlink is also available on mainnet.
As for pricing, no details have been made public yet, but it will most likely be cheaper than running your own Ethereum node.
The best way to stay updated on this service is by following Fiews on Twitter (@Fiewsio), or leave your email below.
This service is only intended for Chainlink nodes, which means any functionality beyond what's required by a Chainlink node may or may not be available.
