Build season is no joke around QuickNode HQ. (It also happens to be every season, all year long.)
Welcome to the first quarterly roundup of 2023! In this edition, we'll provide you with a comprehensive overview of the latest products and updates shipped by the QuickNode team. Coming off our successful $60M Series B Raise, we hit the ground running this year and haven't looked back since.
From the introduction of QuickAlerts and over half-dozen new additions in the QuickNode Marketplace to adding three new chains to our ecosystem and four new networks to our Faucet, we've been plenty productive in Q1 2023.
Let's dive in!
QuickAlerts: Real-Time Alerts for On-Chain Events
QuickAlerts is a powerful new product that enables users to receive real-time notifications for on-chain events happening across multiple blockchain networks, including Ethereum, BNB Smart Chain, and more. With QuickAlerts, you can create a custom data feed tailored to the blockchain events that matter to you the most, delivered directly to your webhook in real-time.
QuickAlerts has a wide array of use cases, from wallets and DeFi to NFT platforms and analytics. Its flexible targeting allows developers to unlock the potential of real-time blockchain events in their dApps. And those are just a few of the use cases you can get started with. QuickAlerts is an astonishing new primitive that gives users the tools to build custom expressions that return the information they need to innovate and delight.
New Chain Support: Base, Flow, and Polygon zkEVM
In Q1, QuickNode expanded its chain support to include Base, Flow, and Polygon zkEVM. Base is a new L2 incubated by Coinbase, while Flow is a permissionless blockchain designed for mainstream adoption. Polygon zkEVM is a leading ZK scaling solution equivalent to Ethereum Virtual Machine.
Base is a new L2 incubated by Coinbase, with a vision to decentralize over time. Base offers a low-cost, secure, and developer-friendly way to build dApps. Base benefits from Coinbase’s expertise in building crypto products, which they've leveraged to create a platform with full EVM compatibility, seamless Coinbase product integrations, and powerful acquisition tools.
Flow is a permissionless blockchain designed for mainstream adoption. Flow is trusted by world-class brands like the NFL, NBA, Ticketmaster, and Mattel, and provides frictionless onboarding with easy user registration, familiar payment methods, and the option to use any wallet of choice.
Polygon zkEVM represents a major breakthrough in Ethereum scaling, and QuickNode is thrilled to support this innovative, cutting-edge technology. By providing fast, reliable access to the Polygon zkEVM, we're empowering the world's most vibrant blockchain developer community to further innovate and build on the future of Web3.

New networks added to QuickNode Faucet
QuickNode Multi-Chain Faucet is a blockchain tool that drips testnet tokens to developers — and anyone else that requests them — for free. You typically use these tokens for creating test transactions on the associated blockchain, such as contract deployments, transferring funds, and debugging failed transactions. In Q1, we added another four networks to our already awesome faucet:
- Avalanche Fuji
- Polygon zkEVM Testnet
- Base Goerli
- Ethereum Sepolia
