Chainpoint Client (beta)

The Chainpoint Client makes it easy to create applications that use Chainpoint. This javascript client can be used in both Browser and Node.js based Javascript applications using callback functions, Promises (using .then.catch), or Promises (using async/await) functional styles.

We’ve created a live code notebook on Runkit that demonstrates how to use the Chainpoint client.

We encourage developers to test the client and submit any issues to the Chainpoint Client Github repo.

We’re Hiring

Tierion has several openings for experienced developers to join our team in San Francisco. Our toolchain is based on Node.js, CockroachDB, PostgreSQL, RabbitMQ, Redis, and Consul. Everything is glued together with Docker, Docker Compose, and Kubernetes. View full job description

Testing

More nodes means more testing! Our team is conducting large scale testing of the live network. Node operators will see periods of traffic.
