Community Nodes

This page contains a list of free, hosted Ceramic nodes made available by the community for the purposes of easily developing applications using the JS HTTP Client or the CLI.

Warning: These nodes will be periodically wiped and streams may disappear, so please don't rely on them for long-term persistence and availability of data. If you need longer-term persistence, consider hosting your own node. Also note that streams created on the Clay Testnet will not be accessible on Mainnet. Only use Mainnet nodes for production deployments.
