3 min read
Start building on the first modular Layer 2 with Ankr’s RPC connection and gateway to communicate with the Mantle testnet.
Ankr is thrilled to announce we are making an important addition to our RPC service with the Mantle network testnet! This is great news for developers looking to get the jump on building on top of Mantle for scalable dApps! Users will be able to access Mantle Public and Premium RPCs, make request calls, and receive information returns that are identical to the results they would get by running a Mantle full node themselves.
What is Mantle?
Mantle is a high-performance Ethereum layer-2 network built with modular architecture delivering low fees and high security. Builders can leverage Mantle’s unique design and optimistic roll-up tech to build dApps with exceptional UX, all while relying on Ethereum’s unmatched security.
What Are Ankr’s New Mantle RPC Connections?
Ankr’s Mantle RPCs (Remote Procedure Calls) connect your wallet, command-line interface, or dApp with the Mantle testnet. They act as a messenger or blockchain router that relays on-chain information between Mantle nodes, dApps, and ultimately end-users so they can execute necessary tasks like transactions, populate wallet balances, fetch ownership information, and much more.
Mantle RPC endpoints are a gateway for developers to interface directly with Mantle testnet— a portal to communicate easily, remotely, and with no need to go through the DevOps of establishing their own Mantle nodes.
Ankr is providing a geo-distributed Mantle RPC comprised of blockchain nodes running worldwide for incredibly low-latency and reliable connections.

How Do the Mantle RPCs Help Developers?
Building with Mantle is an excellent choice to create secure and scalable dApps but requires access to the information on Mantle nodes to do so. Therefore, Ankr’s RPC solves the following developer troubles:
Eliminates complex node ops - Ankr’s Mantle RPCs will completely remove the need for many developers to set up their own Mantle 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 Mantle req/sec
- Dedicated Mantle endpoints
- Prioritized requests
- WebSockets (WS) capabilities
Powers apps and open-source software that need access to Mantle - Connect with a cluster of high-performance nodes that holds the information you need to build and operate dApps with Mantle chain capabilities.
Supports the Mantle network - Ankr will strengthen the Mantle network globally by offering easier development and a broader, decentralized node infrastructure.
How to Make Your First Call to Mantle
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/mantle_testnet to call the Mantle chain using the standard EVM JSON RPC methods.
