Lava is a chain and API agnostic protocol for blockchain access.
Node providers can join the protocol, connect directly to developers and serve RPC relays. During testnet, Lava is working with top ecosystems such as Evmos and Axelar, and these chains offer programmes to pay providers for their service.
Providers offer RPC service on Lava. Developers purchase on-chain subscription plans for regular RPC, and these payments are distributed to Providers based on how much RPC they have served in a given period. Providers are also incentivized more for having high quality of service: latency, availability and data freshness.

No! To make our service more scalable and remove barriers to entry, we have separated Validator and Provider roles.
Lava supports 25+ networks currently, including Ethereum, Cosmos Hub, Aptos, Celo, Arbitrum, Starknet, Polygon, Osmosis, Fantom, Canto, Base, Evmos, Optimism and Juno.
New chains are added all the time and providers who join early to Lava will be the first to know about new opportunities to serve RPC.
