Building applications that leverage blockchain data can be cumbersome, but it’s not impossible. Because blockchains don’t typically have RESTful APIs, delivering data to your web app can be complicated. However, we found a way around this challenge by deploying a blockchain node to an EC2 instance. With this approach, we were able to request data and deliver it to our web app using Lambda.
In this talk given by Very Product Manager Sam McDavid and Senior Engineer Justin Ratner, you will learn:
- How we used AWS Lambda and blockchain to build a robust web app
- Best practices for delivering blockchain data to your web app
- Cost-effective ways of serving blockchain data to your application
