Ecosystem Horizon Providers

Ecosystem Horizon Providers

info

Starting on July 15, 2024, SDF will be truncating historical data on SDF-owned Horizon to one year. This update allows us to optimize performance and ensure a streamlined experience for all users. We encourage you to explore third-party ecosystem providers of Horizon, which may provide a longer history retention window as well as other features.

Multiple infrastructure providers have made Horizon services available, and offer plans ranging from free to high throughput endpoints. These providers can be used for development, testing, and production.

These providers allow access to the Testnet and Mainnet networks.

*Please note that Blockdaemon provides full historical data on its Horizon. Please note that Blockdaemon combines Horizon and RPC in the same endpoint.

SDF Provided Horizon (Futurenet and Testnet)

SDF provides a Horizon endpoint but it is rate-limited and subject to changes such as truncation of history. Developers are encouraged to select an ecosystem provider. In some cases, projects may choose to run their own Horizon instance.
