How DigitalOcean helps DSRV disrupt the blockchain infrastructure market

"Traffic optimization is not easy to solve for startups like DSRV that are just taking off, and DigitalOcean presented tangible solutions for us.”

How DigitalOcean helps DSRV disrupt the blockchain infrastructure market

DSRV is a leading Proof-of-Stake (PoS) validator for over 20 global blockchain networks, including Ethereum 2.0, Solana, Polygon, Celo, and NEAR Protocol. Driven by a mission to power the next internet through building Web 3.0 essentials, DSRV is building a range of tools needed by developers to build the multi-chain future. Simply put, DSRV provides the building blocks essential for the growth of the crypto ecosystem. 

DSRV recognizes that blockchain as a platform is based on trust. Users need a stable and secure network, access to development tools, and excellent node operators. They’re committed to providing stable infrastructure for the sector because they believe that developers can change the world through blockchain as a platform. 

DSRV’s developer teams

As a tech-driven company, DSRV’s developer teams account for more than two-thirds of its employees. In addition to the Validator team, there are three teams specializing in building products for Web 3.0 developers. 

The first team is working on a multi-chain development platform called All That Node, which provides RPC nodes for blockchain developers to build products on multiple networks and supports up to 10,000 free API calls a day. The second team has been building a multi-chain product suite for developers and users alike, known as WELLDONE Studio. This consists of several indispensable tools for Web 3.0 players, such as WELLDONE Wallet and Code, which launched in August 2022. The following products are set to launch in September. Finally, the Sonar team is responsible for developing tools related to on-chain data, including an explorer and dashboard optimized for multiple networks. 

Partnering with DigitalOcean

DigitalOcean critically supports the validator operations for DSRV. The organization needed access to data centers based in Eastern Asia that supplied High Availability (HA) configurations to maintain the stability of the validation data and prepare for worst-case scenarios.

Originally, they kept the server hardware dispersed in several locations using multiple clouds and data centers and, if possible, multiple internet networks. As they began their validator operations at the end of 2019, they discovered that DigitalOcean offers services in the Singapore region. DigitalOcean was an excellent choice for DSRV, offering stability on par with major cloud companies alongside DigitalOcean’s Droplets (virtual machines) at a relatively low price. As an added bonus, the intuitive UI/UX provided by DigitalOcean was attractive to DSRV as a validator. 

“The biggest advantage we gained from this was being able to predict the cost of operating nodes, which use a lot of data traffic. Traffic optimization is not easy to solve for startups like DSRV that are just taking off, and DigitalOcean presented tangible solutions for us.” —Hyung-Kyu Choi, CTO and Co-founder.

Growing with DigitalOcean

Over the past year, Tokens Under Management (TUM) grew 3,000%, reaching a value of $1 billion. DSRV looks for blockchains that are actively trying to solve problems facing the community while using technically sound methods and focuses on organizations with solutions that can change the world. 

Their ultimate goal is to create a Web 3.0 version of Visual Studio so that developers can experience the same multi-chain development everywhere. With the firm belief that new blockchains will continue to emerge, DSRV strives to equip the expanding community with the required infrastructure for sustainable growth. Emerging chains will always need validators like DSRV, and these ecosystems are maintained by developers who need the right tools supplied by organizations like DSRV.
