Start building on Kava for the speed and scalability of Cosmos with the developer support of Ethereum.

Ankr is thrilled to announce we are making an important addition to our RPC service with the Kava Network! This is great news for developers looking to get the jump on building on top of Kava for scalable and connected dApps! Users will be able to access Kava ecosystem and Premium RPCs, make request calls, and receive information returns that are identical to the results you would get by running a Kava full node themselves.

What is Kava?

The Kava Network is the first Layer-1 blockchain to combine the scalability of the Cosmos SDK with the developer support of Ethereum. The Kava Network empowers developers to build for Web3 and next-gen blockchain technologies through its unique co-chain architecture. KAVA is the native governance and staking token of the Kava Network, enabling its decentralization and security.

What Are Ankr’s New Kava RPC Connections?

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

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

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

How Do the Kava RPCs Help Developers?

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

Eliminates complex node ops - Ankr’s Kava RPCs will completely remove the need for many developers to set up their own Kava 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 Kava req/sec
  • Dedicated Kava endpoints
  • Prioritized requests
  • WebSockets (WS) capabilities

Powers apps and open-source software that need access to Kava - Connect with a cluster of high-performance nodes that holds the information you need to build and operate dApps with Kava chain capabilities.

Supports the Kava networkAnkr will strengthen the Kava network globally by offering easier development and a broader, decentralized node infrastructure.

How to Make Your First Call to Kava

You can get started now by heading to Ankr’s RPC Service to make your first call! You can use the Kava endpoint to call the chain using the standard EVM JSON RPC methods.
