Discover how QuickNode's Rollups-as-a-Service revolutionizes blockchain development with customized solutions tailored for high performance.

Quickly Deploy Rollups and AppChains, Without Any Pain

Many developers are turning to appchains and custom chains to build their products and applications in web3. Why? It's simple: they offer unmatched performance and the freedom for developers to customize the toolkit and tech stack to suit their individual needs.

This blog post is the final installment of our three-part series highlighting QuickNode's support for the growth and relevance of appchains and RaaS (Rollups as a Service). In the first part, we discussed appchains, private chains, and sidechains. In the second part, we dove into into appchains and rollups-as-a-service (RaaS).

Now, we will examine the common challenges developers face when working with existing solutions in the market. We will then illuminate how QuickNode's innovative offerings can overcome these hurdles, empowering developers to build custom, high-performance chains or rollups backed by industry-leading, scalable infrastructure.

AppChains and Rollups: A Quick Recap

AppChains are specialized blockchain infrastructures designed for specific applications. They offer developers complete control and allow for extensive customization to optimize performance and functionality.

Rollups, on the other hand, are blockchains that bundle transactions off-chain to reduce the load on the primary blockchain, enhancing transaction efficiency and scalability. Together, appchains and rollups provide developers with powerful frameworks to customize and scale their web3 solutions.

Challenges with Most Appchains and Rollup Solutions

While other appchains and rollups providers promise scalability and customization, they often come with significant technical hurdles:

  1. Complex Setup and Configuration — Setting up custom blockchains and configuring rollups is complex and requires deep technical expertise. This increases overall complexity, costs, and development time.
  2. Interoperability Issues — AppChain ecosystems and protocols are often siloed, complicating cross-chain interactions and leading to data inconsistency. The lack of standardization and documented resources further complicates the situation.
  3. Maintenance and Updates — Blockchains and rollups require continuous monitoring and intervention, from rolling out security patches to managing outages, which is resource-intensive. Even some RaaS providers struggle with this, as seen earlier when updates inadvertently caused several chains to halt operations.
  4. Security Risks — Tools, documentation, and support resources for appchain and rollup developers are often lacking, hindering efficient development and increasing time to market for applications and protocols.
  5. Limited Developer Support — A lack of comprehensive tools, documentation, and resources hampers efficient development and delays time to market.
