The BurstNodeService wraps the returned values in RxJava Singles. You can create your own SchedulerAssigner to automatically make all returned values subscribe on the specified schedulers. If you don't want to use RxJava, call toFuture() on any Single.

GSON is used for JSON serialization/deserialization. To obtain a GsonBuilder customized to serialize/deserialize BurstKit entities, call BurstKitUtils.buildGson().
