Using Remote Nodes

In case you don't want to download the blockchain and verify it everytime, you can instead use a Remote Node to quickly sync the blockchain.

Extra Fees for Remote Nodes

Remote nodes are run by anyone who like to support the BLOC and do an extra of passive income while hosting a BLOC public remote node on his computer or on a webserver. Remote nodes require some maintenance and updates that are managed by the node owner. Extra fees are usually required to process each transaction using this remote node. You will get the following message while connecting to a remote node using BLOCWallet:

You have connected to a node that charges a fee to send transactions.
The fee for sending transactions is: 0.0005 BLOC per transaction. 
If you don't want to pay the node fee, please relaunch BLOCWallet and specify a different node or run your own.
The fees are set by the node owner and can vary from one to another. These fees are different that the standard 0.0001 BLOC fee per transaction. It is added to it.
