Irys has three nodes:
Our Node URLs have recently changed from
irys.xyz, if you have an existing project, see our
migration guide for details on how to upgrade.
Uploads to Irys's Mainnet (Nodes 1 and 2) are stored permanently on Arweave. Your upload will remain accessible at all times, even if Irys is no longer available.
Uploads of less than 100 KiB are free on Node 2.
Uploads can be paid for in any of the 14 tokens we support.
Uploads to Irys's Devnet are kept for roughly 60 days. The Devnet is for building and prototyping projects along with learning our SDK.
Uploads can be paid for using free tokens available from faucets.
Irys is multichain, supporting both paying for uploads with 14 tokens and signing that upload using the token’s cryptography. The signature type used to sign a transaction is tracked at the transaction-level.
