In Brief


    Start building on Telos, the new high performance Layer Zero.

    Ankr is excited to announce a new addition to our RPC service: Telos, a swiftly growing Layer 0 ecosystem enabling ZK technology for high performance scaling and privacy.

    This is great news for developers looking to get the jump on building on top of Telos for fast and stable chains and dApps! Users will be able to access Telos Public and Premium RPCs, make request calls, and receive information returns that are identical to the results they would get by running a node themselves.

    Use the Telos RPCs now!

    What is Telos?

    The Telos blockchain ecosystem is a Layer 0 “network of networks” was created to provide a scalable, secure, and user-friendly platform for building and deploying new dApps and networks.

    • Scalability for dApps: Traditional blockchains often struggle with handling a high volume of transactions. Telos was created to overcome this hurdle, offering high transaction speeds (up to 15,200 transactions per second according to Telos) to support large-scale decentralized applications (dApps).

    • Fast and Near-Gasless TX: Slow transaction speeds and high fees can be frustrating for users. Telos prioritizes fast and practically fee-less transactions to enhance user experience and encourage broader adoption.

    • Environmentally Friendly Design: Energy consumption is a growing concern for blockchain technology. Telos is one of the most energy efficient blockchains in the world and is fully ESG compliant.

    What Are Ankr’s New Telos RPC Connections?

    • Ankr’s Telos RPCs (Remote Procedure Calls) connect your wallet, command-line interface, or dApp with Telos. They act as a messenger or blockchain router that relays on-chain information between Telos nodes, chains, and ultimately end-users so they can execute necessary tasks like transactions, populate wallet balances, fetch ownership information, and much more.

    • Telos RPC endpoints are a gateway for developers to interface directly with Telos — a portal to communicate easily, remotely, and with no need to go through the DevOps of establishing their own Telos nodes.

    • Ankr is providing a geo-distributed Telos RPC comprised of blockchain nodes running worldwide for incredibly low latency and reliable connections.

    How Do the Telos RPCs Help Developers?

    Building with Telos is an excellent choice for creating high performance dApps, but requires access to the information on Telos nodes to do so. Therefore, Ankr’s RPC solves the following developer troubles:

    Eliminates complex node ops - Ankr’s Telos RPCs will completely remove the need for developers to set up their own Telos 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 90,000 Telos req/minute
    • Dedicated Telos endpoints
    • Prioritized requests
    • Priority support portal
    • WebSockets (WS) capabilities

    Powers chains, applications, and open-source software that need access to Telos - Connect with a cluster of high-performance nodes that hold the information you need to build and operate applications with Telos chain capabilities.

    Supports the Telos network - Ankr will strengthen the Telos network globally by offering easier development and a broader, decentralized node infrastructure.

    How to Make Your First Call to Telos

    You can get started building on the Telos network by heading to Ankr’s RPC Service to make your first call! You will be able to use the Telos endpoint to call the chain using the standard EVM JSON RPC methods.
