Only query executions count as usage.
When a query is executed we hash the query statement and use this as a key to check whether query results already exist for the query statement and API key. If query results exist we return the cached results. This does NOT count against your rate limits.
Every API key is subject to a rate limit over a moving 5-minute window, as well as an aggregate daily limit.
Rate Limits will be upgradeable via Spores, coming soon. Spores are separate NFTs that can be minted and attached to your ShroomDK NFT.
Initial Spore NFTs will allow you to upgrade things such as query run limits and query execution speed (compute power).
Need higher limits today?!
We're here to support and enable you. Reach out to us on Discord, explaining your use case, and we'll be happy to work with you to adjust your limits to best fit your needs.
