Start building on Linea, the Developer Friendly zk-Rollup, Powered by Consensys

Ankr is thrilled to announce that we’ve made an essential addition to our RPC service with the Linea layer 2 network! This is great news for Web3 devs looking to get the jump on building on top of Linea for scalable and developer-centric dApp development! Users will be able to access Linea Premium RPCs, make request calls, and receive information returns that are identical to the results they would get by running a Linea full node themselves.

"Our collaboration with Ankr in integrating our zkEVM rollup into their RPC services is a pivotal development. This partnership significantly extends Linea’s reach and usability within the developer community. By leveraging Ankr’s established platform, Linea’s growing ecosystem becomes more accessible to a wider range of developers, facilitating the creation and migration of scalable, efficient dApps on Layer 2."

– Delcan Fox, Linea Product Lead


What is Linea?

Linea combines the power of zero-knowledge proofs with full Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) equivalence, allowing builders to create scalable dApps or migrate existing ones without the hassle of changing code or rewriting smart contracts. Their prover design ensures faster transaction speeds and reduced gas costs without sacrificing security. Linea is also designed to be approachable and highly composable, offering flexibility and scalability to developers who do not need to be an expert in zero-knowledge technology to build on a zkEVM.

What Are Ankr’s New Linea RPC Connections?

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

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

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

How Do the Linea RPCs Help Developers?

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

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

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

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


How to Make Your First Call to Linea

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