Incentivized Public RPC
Feb 4, 2024


Lava is the first modular data network that scales RPC & APIs for rollups. Add any chain's RPC module to Lava - the network of node operators will optimize, scale and decentralize the traffic.

While contributing to a more performant and chain-agnostic infrastructure layer for web3, Incentivized Public RPC also gives anyone an opportunity to monetize their nodes.

Axelar (November to January)

Lava Foundation will distribute a batch payment, rewarding providers according to their performance across the months of November to January.
In recognition of the efforts made by node providers, the Foundation has dedicated a portion of the pool to distribute a 100 AXL participation reward.
This means all active providers during this period will receive 100 AXL plus additional performance-based rewards.

We apologize for the recent delay in payments, which was due to internal misalignment and compliance demands. We value our communityโ€™s hard work and dedication, and strive to maintain transparency and fairness in all our initiatives.

In the following payments Lava Foundation is committed to ensuring timely and fair compensation on a monthly basis. In the future we aim for processes to be on-chain, fully permissionless and automatic, to make it as easy as possible for node runners to earn from RPC.
