    Start building on the “metaverse blockchain for all” easily with Ankr’s RPC connection and gateway to communicate with the Klaytn chain.

    Ankr is introducing yet another RPC service for the new metaverse blockchain, Klaytn! This is great news for developers looking to get the jump on building on top of Klaytn for their metaverse applications! You can now access Klaytn Community and Premium RPCs, make request calls, and receive information returns that are identical to the results you would get by running a Klaytn full node yourself.

    Ankr has more in the works for Klaytn with additional docs, features, and tools to help streamline building for our Web3 dev community.

    What is Klaytn?

    Klaytn is a public layer-1 blockchain that was built to accommodate the creation of applications that let us build, work, and play in the metaverse. In a blog post, the Klaytn team advertised that the blockchain was around 3-4 times faster than some of the leading blockchains in terms of speed (compared to Solana, Avalanche, and Polygon) with approximately 4,000 transactions per second. Having a high TPS is very important for transaction-heavy metaverse use cases.

    Providing a high-performance blockchain for the metaverse:

    • Low transaction fees
    • Supportive developer environment
    • Web3 gaming focused

    What Are Ankr’s New Klaytn RPC Connections?

    • Ankr’s Klaytn RPCs (Remote Procedure Calls) connect your wallet, command-line interface, or dApp with the Klaytn blockchain. They act as a messenger or blockchain router that relays on-chain information between Klaytn nodes, dApps, and ultimately end-users so they can execute necessary tasks like transactions, populate wallet balances, fetch ownership information, and more.
    • Klaytn RPC endpoints are a gateway for developers to interface directly with the Klaytn chain — a portal to communicate easily, remotely, and with no need to go through the DevOps of establishing their own Klaytn nodes.
    • Ankr is providing a geo-distributed Klaytn RPC comprised of blockchain nodes running worldwide for incredibly low-latency and reliable connections.

    How Do the Klaytn RPCs Help Developers?

    Building with Klaytn is an excellent choice to create scalable metaverse dApps but requires access to the information on Klaytn nodes to do so. Therefore, Ankr’s RPC solves the following developer troubles:

    • Eliminates complex node ops - Ankr’s Klaytn RPCs will completely remove the need for many developers to set up their own Klaytn nodes, removing hours of time spent building, calibrating, and fixing node issues.
    • Grants access to advanced tools -  Ankr’s Premium RPC Plan instantly grants access to the best tools to build applications quickly, including:
    • At least 1,500 Klaytn req/sec
    • Dedicated Klaytn endpoints
    • Prioritized requests
    • WebSockets (WS) capabilities
    • Powers apps and open-source software that need access to Klaytn - Connect with a cluster of high-performance nodes that holds the information you need to build and operate dApps with Klaytn chain capabilities.
    • Supports the Klaytn networkAnkr will strengthen the Klaytn network globally by offering easier development and a broader, decentralized node infrastructure.

    How to Make Your First Call to Klaytn

    You can get started now by heading to Ankr’s RPC Service to make your first call! You can use the endpoint https://rpc.ankr.com/klaytn to call the Klaytn chain using the standard EVM JSON RPC methods.
