The blockchain node instance we’re repurposing for Rosetta is accessible before it syncs to head. For example, if the known head is at block 1000 but the local head is only at 900, you are still able to use the exposed API as if you were at block 900.
Would be good to know what kind of best practices there are. Should rosetta be restricted from accessing the node until it’s fully synced, or should we allow access but with a note in the metadata response, or perhaps only allow the Data API to have access but not the Construction API?
Would love to hear thoughts!
