Sei: Ankr’s Newest RPC Connection
September 6, 2023

Ankr is thrilled to announce that we will soon release an essential addition to our RPC service with the Sei blockchain. This is excellent news for developers looking to get the jump on building on top of Sei for fast and scalable dApps! Users will be able to access Sei Public and Premium RPCs, make request calls, and receive information returns that are identical to the results they would get by running a Sei full node themselves.
What is Sei?
Sei seeks to be the fastest layer-1 blockchain in the industry, unlocked by its “Twin-Turbo” consensus mechanism. Additionally, the chain offers low transaction costs and throughput of 20,000 ops (orders per second). Their efforts at creating a high-performance blockchain are tailored to power modern applications and enable the mass adoption of digital assets. With their public Pacific-1 mainnet freshly launched in August, builders are excited about what the future holds for Sei.
What Are Ankr’s New Sei RPC API Connections?
Ankr’s Sei RPCs (Remote Procedure Calls) connect wallets, interfaces, and dApps with the Sei blockchain. They act as a messenger or blockchain router that relays on-chain information between Sei nodes, dApps, and ultimately end-users so they can execute necessary tasks like making transactions, populating wallet balances, fetching ownership information, and much more.
Sei RPC endpoints are a gateway for developers to interface directly with the Sei network — a portal to communicate easily, remotely, and with no need to go through the DevOps of establishing their own Sei nodes.
Ankr is providing a geo-distributed Sei RPC comprised of blockchain nodes running worldwide for incredibly low latency and reliable connections.
How Do the Sei RPCs Help Developers?
Building with Sei is an excellent choice to create fast and scalable dApps but requires access to the information on Sei nodes to do so. Therefore, Ankr’s RPC solves the following developer troubles:
Eliminates complex node ops - Ankr’s Sei RPCs will completely remove the need for many developers to set up their own Sei 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 Sei requests/min
- High request priority
- Global node locations
- Debug mode
- Support Portal
- WebSockets (WS) capabilities
Powers apps and open-source software that need access to Sei - Connect with a cluster of high-performance nodes that holds the information you need to build and operate dApps with Sei blockchain capabilities.
Supports the Sei network - Ankr will strengthen the Sei network globally by offering easier development and a broader, distributed node infrastructure.
Get Started Building On Sei Coming Soon
You will soon see Sei as a supported option on Ankr’s RPC service, with the ability to call the Sei chain using the standard EVM JSON RPC methods.
