Launching a dedicated, custom-fit blockchain for operating a single Web3 project is currently a highly feasible scaling solution that developers and Web3 enterprises across the world prefer. Zeeve already predicted the surpassing popularity of custom blockchains, also widely known as appchains. Therefore, Zeeve announced the “AppChains” service offering earlier this year, enabling businesses to launch their own independent, tailor-made blockchains from scratch. With this value addition, Zeeve allows businesses to manage their large and complex dApp projects on an independent blockchain for higher scalability, sovereignty, and security. Through this article, we’ll understand the importance of dedicated custom-fit blockchains and how Zeeve’s custom blockchain development service is helping web3 businesses scale faster.
Why custom blockchain development is on the rise?
Custom blockchain development refers to creating application-specific blockchains to manage and scale a single blockchain solution. Each AppChain utilizes its separate virtual machine, smart contract, nodes, explorers, and wallets. This approach of appchain development keeps dApps away from competing with other dApps in the ecosystem to use blockchain-level resources; thus scalability improves naturally. Meanwhile, Appchains are capable of interoperating with other Appchains running parallel to each other. All these statements signify that custom blockchain development is ideal for enterprises running large dApp projects. However, if dApp size is small to average, businesses can run dApp on a shared ecosystem and leverage its security, tokenomics, and other resources. Building an independent custom dApps for such dApps doesn’t make sense.
Zeeve offers services to all kinds of businesses, whether someone wants a custom blockchain development service or wants to deploy their solutions on existing blockchain ecosystems. Speaking about custom blockchains, Zeeve’s custom blockchain development service enables businesses to launch independent blockchains for their dApps and scale endlessly with time.

Zeeve’s Custom blockchains: The ultimate solution to dApp scalability issues
Custom blockchains provide decentralized solutions or dApps with increased flexibility, unbounded customization, and complete sovereignty over the underlying blockchain infrastructure. While this approach of launching a single-blockchain is a viable option to improve dApp’s scalability and tackle security challenges, doing so seems a challenging task, especially for new developers and web3 startups.
For example, building a blockchain requires developers to bootstrap a reliable infrastructure for validators, RPC nodes, faucets, and more. Further, they need to ensure that their network always remains up without any performance-related issues. Accomplishing all these objectives is complex and, at the same time– an expensive deal. To provide a solution, Zeeve’s offers custom blockchain development services, which simplify the blockchain deployment process with ready-to-deploy infrastructure, support to Subgraphs and Subquery, plug-n-play developer tools, and excellent customization support. Thereby, Zeeve saves considerable time for businesses, enabling them to quickly launch their custom blockchain for faster time-to-market while Zeeve does all the heavy lifting on their behalf.
Whether you want to build your dApp as a custom blockchain from scratch or migrate your dApp from a shared ecosystem to an independent blockchain, Zeeve offers support for all kinds of projects. As discussed, Zeeve provides highly optimized web3 infrastructure to manage all the components of your blockchain. In this regard, let’s see what are the components a blockchain typically needs to run:
- RPC nodes to query/write very specific data into the blockchain.
- APIs to connect to RPC endpoints of desired blockchain protocols for multiple purposes such as data querying, retrieving, and exchanging data.
- Block explorers to track, visualize, and review the network-level (on-chain) data and network transactions.
- Web3 wallets to securely exchange and store cryptocurrencies and a range of digital assets like Non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
- Decentralized bridges to facilitate the transfer of data, cryptos, and assets across different networks.
- Testnet Faucets provide test tokens to the users, enabling them to experiment with the network’s testnet.
- Dev tools, SDKs, and frameworks to support easy development and innovation in the network ecosystem.
Managing all the above components is challenging for web3 developers as they have to take care of everything on their own. But, with Zeeve’s custom blockchains, web3 developers can effortlessly launch their custom blockchain as we provide infrastructure to efficiently deploy and manage every single element listed above. Following is the list of main support and services Zeeve is offering for seamless custom blockchain development:
Support for multiple Appchain Frameworks:
Zeeve supports all the popular AppChain solutions— Substrate Parachains, Cosmos SDK, Polygon Supernets, Avalanche Subnets, and BNB Application Sidechains. Each of these ecosystems is unique in terms of providing customization, underlying security, the way it achieves consensus, etc. Based on the use-case specific needs of your blockchain, you can choose any of these to build your AppChain (custom blockchain). As required, you can customize the existing AppChain infrastructure, modify the security parameters, increase the TPS capacity, and even launch your custom gas token without hassle. To further ease the process, Zeeve allows you to access advanced plug-and-play dev tools and platforms for a quick and seamless deployment. Simply put, we put together everything you need for the production-grade deployment of your custom blockchain.
Though nodes are just one part of appchain deployments, they are important. Zeeve’s low-code deployment platform allows you to deploy all kinds of nodes – Full, Archive, and validator nodes, with excellent load-balancing capabilities. Zeeve provides a wizard-based configuration panel for customization and flexibility, removing the pain of deploying and managing nodes. Hence, you can run as many nodes as required to support your blockchain network without having to worry about downtime. With our multi-cloud and multi-region support, we maintain excellent uptime of all nodes, leaving no space for potential downtime.
Also, Zeeve offers elastic APIs with the fastest response. Web3 projects can use Zeeve’s APIs to fetch and utilize blockchain data without having to set up dedicated nodes. With APIs, you get access to RPC endpoints that are ideal for general-purpose RPC requests. Note that APIs are ideal for small projects as it is shared across multiple users, which is not a viable option if you frequently request data or make more resource-intensive RPC requests.
Data indexing protocols:
Zeeve cut down the significant cost of businesses for running their own data servers, building infrastructure for data indexing, or filtering the raw data. Zeeve’s dedicated support for prominent data indexing protocols— The Graph Network and Subquery Network allows blockchain developers and web3 enterprises to launch custom, best-in-class Subgraphs and Subquery APIs easily. As needed, you can use Shared indexers and Dedicated indexers to match the data requirements of your application.
