Compute Units (CU)

Learn more about what is Compute Units and how does it affects your pricing.

All Moralis plans have generous limits on the number of requests you can make per month. How many included requests you have depends on the plan you have, check the pricing page for more details.

Some requests are more expensive than others. By giving some heavy requests higher weight, we ensure that you only pay for what you use and not a cent more.

This allows you to get cheaper requests for most use cases while protecting our systems from abuse by weighing the computationally expensive endpoints.

What is a Compute Unit (CU)?

A compute unit is a measure of the requests needed to query computationally expensive API endpoints. Each request weighs a certain amount of compute units.

See more here for details about API endpoints that are weighted.
