In imToken 2.11.2, we have optimized the custom node feature. The optimization includes:
- Support for viewing node status to quickly understand the current state of the node
- Providing more default nodes to improve your network experience
- Support for manually adding nodes, providing you with a higher privacy protection.
Support for viewing node status to quickly understand the current state of the node
In the latest version of imToken, you can view the node status of various networks, such as Ethereum and Bitcoin. The node status is largely determined by the speed and block height of the network nodes. A higher node speed and block height typically indicate a better node status.
How to view the node status
1. Open imToken and click "Settings" - "Node Settings". On the Node Settings page, select the network you want to view, here we take "ETHEREUM" as an example.
2. Enter the ETHEREUM Node Settings page, click "Ethereum" - "Edit", and click the URL to enter the RPC page. On the RPC page, you can view the network node speed and block height.
Providing more default nodes to improve your network experience
If you notice that the node you are currently using is not performing well, imToken offers additional default nodes in this version. You can switch to a different node to improve your network experience.
How to switch nodes
The RPC page typically provides two or three default nodes for you to choose from, allowing you to switch freely between them.
Support for manually adding nodes, providing you with a higher privacy protection
If you have strong privacy concerns, this feature has been designed with you in mind. In this version, we offer a more convenient way to add and manage third-party nodes, providing users with more privacy-friendly options. Additionally, this feature is also helpful for developers, who can add their own nodes for easier debugging.
How to add a node
On the RPC page, click "Add RPC URL" and enter the RPC address to add the node.
The next phase for custom nodes
Since Ethereum switched to proof-of-stake (PoS), there has been increasing concern about MEV and related privacy transactions. In future versions, we will continue to improve the custom node feature to provide users with more user-friendly privacy transaction services.
