Switching API server

Any core channel node multi-address can be used as an API server. You can find a list of core nodes here and their multi-address in their "info".
Example of one of the nodes multi-address that can be found on https://account.aleph.im/: /ip4/
Api Server Url would look like this:
https://<ip-address> or http://<ip-address>:4024
[Future Release] The Aleph will provide load-balancing in the future so the users don't have to pick an api_server.
Reasons for choosing a different api_server:
  • The latency decreases the closer the dApp is from the server
  • Some offer HTTPS others don't (yet).
