In a joint effort, Everstake and Bake’n’Rolls created the Tezos Ukraine organisation which is deeply committed to supporting the Tezos network by developing a variety of useful analytics tools and extending public infrastructure that boosts Tezos technology mass adoption.
We always try to implement the best industry practices in all things. Thereby, our customer support team and our experienced DevOps engineers work around the clock, ensuring that all systems are up and running smoothly.
Every decentralized network requires significant stability and performance of the blockchain nodes so that users could have constant and secure access to the ecosystem. And our team has carefully configured and built the Tezos Giga Node solution which is capable of processing up to 1 Gigabit of traffic simultaneously. Moreover, we worked on security and reliability, so that users who connect could have peace in mind while interacting with the blockchain.
Considering the fact that not all wallets have technical capabilities to modify RPCs, we have chosen two wallets that can be easily tweaked to use a custom node. By the way, there’s no need to have a specific technical knowledge to make such changes.
Tezos Wallet Command Line Interface (CLI)
The easiest way to modify the the node you are connecting to across many wallets is definitely Tezos CLI wallet. In order to change your current node please open your client config file nano .tezos-client/config, modifying the following variables:
- “node_addr”: “mainnet-tezos.giganode.io"
- “node_port”: 443
- “tls”: true
