FAQ
XMTP Labs is a web3 software company that contributes to XMTP (Extensible Message Transport Protocol), an open network, protocol, and standards for secure messaging between blockchain accounts.

XMTP Labs employees work alongside other XMTP community members to build with and extend XMTP. Community contributions and participation are critical to the development and adoption of XMTP.
XMTP Labs is focused on serving developers. We build SDKs, UI components, and example apps that help developers build great experiences with XMTP.
XMTP has been implemented to work with Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM)-compatible wallet apps and blockchain accounts, though XMTP itself does not use EVMs.
Currently, XMTP Labs (the company) operates all of the network nodes in the two available XMTP network environments: dev and production.

Decentralization of the XMTP network will be achieved by a diverse set of independent third parties operating nodes.

XMTP Labs is working toward a phased decentralization of the network and will share a roadmap in the coming months.
XMTP is not a blockchain. Nodes on the XMTP network run software to store and transfer messages between blockchain accounts. For secure and reliable delivery of messages, the nodes participate in a consensus mechanism.

XMTP Labs is researching various consensus protocols that would allow the network to operate in a decentralized fashion while maintaining its current emphasis on user privacy and low-latency message delivery.
Yes, you will be able to run a node.

XMTP Labs is working toward a phased decentralization of the network and will share a roadmap in the coming months.
XMTP currently uses the Waku protocol to relay messages between network nodes.

Waku is an unopinionated transport layer built around the libp2p publish/subscribe model. Waku is intentionally open-ended when it comes to handling options like message encoding and encryption, which content topics to use, and how to create and manage encryption keys linked to blockchain account addresses.

XMTP provides a standardized approach to addressing these options, focusing on maximizing compatibility across apps and ensuring message security and deliverability, while also enabling as many developers as possible to use XMTP to build interoperable messaging apps.
XMTP provides perceptibly real-time message delivery and retrieval. The network does not provide service level guarantees.
Currently, XMTP network nodes are configured to rate limit high-volume publishing from clients. A rate-limited client can expect to receive a 429 status code response from a node.

XMTP Labs is capable of rate limiting the network while we are the only node operators. Rate limiting is a consideration in our research into economic spam controls. Ultimately, rate limiting decisions will be made based on maintaining network quality and reducing the potential for malicious attacks by senders and nodes.
XMTP Labs is committed to keeping the network running. Future incentive mechanisms will enable the network to run autonomously of XMTP Labs.
