Presearch Nodes on Flux

The Flux decentralized infrastructure has a wide selection of blockchain node hosting services on the Flux Marketplace. Several thousand blockchain nodes have found a home on one of the 12,000 computational nodes on the Flux network.

A Cost-efficient and Fully Decentralized Hosting Solution

Read on to learn about hosting your Presearch nodes on the Flux network and how you can leverage the advantages of truly decentralized Web3 infrastructure.

The blockchain nodes running on Flux benefit from the many advantages of truly decentralized infrastructure:

  • Cost-efficiency — the centralized corporate middleman has been cut out
  • Trustless — all you need is to sign in with your crypto wallet; no KYC is needed
  • Resilience — if one of your node instances goes offline, a new one is spawned
  • Performance — Flux infrastructure is regularly benchmarked, and your blockchain nodes are automatically updated to the latest software version.

The most popular blockchain node to host on Flux is Presearch, there are currently more than three-thousand Presearch nodes running on Flux.

Presearch is a community-driven decentralized search engine that provides better results while protecting your privacy and rewarding you when you search. The Presearch nodes are a fundamental piece of the Presearch project as they power the search engine by crawling the web for the information needed to answer user search queries.d nodes.
