Start building on the only public blockchain connecting all others with Ankr’s RPC connection and gateway to communicate with ZetaChain.
Ankr is thrilled to announce we are making an important addition to our RPC service for ZetaChain! This is great news for developers looking to get the jump on building on top of ZetaChain for interoperable and connected dApps! Users will be able to access ZetaChain Community and Premium RPCs, make request calls, and receive information returns that are identical to the results you would get by running a ZetaChain full node themselves.
What is ZetaChain?
ZetaChain is the world’s first and only decentralized L1 blockchain with built-in cross-chain interoperability, connecting all blockchains, even non-smart contract chains like Bitcoin and Dogecoin. With ZetaChain’s complete Omnichain toolkit, developers can build true omnichain dApps from a single point of logic, and users can access all of their assets, data, and liquidity in a single place, securely.
What Are Ankr’s New ZetaChain RPC Connections?
Ankr’s ZetaChain RPCs (Remote Procedure Calls) connect your wallet, command-line interface, or dApp with the ZetaChain blockchain. They act as a messenger or blockchain router that relays on-chain information between ZetaChain nodes, dApps, and ultimately end-users so they can execute necessary tasks like transactions, populate wallet balances, fetch ownership information, and much more.
ZetaChain RPC endpoints are a gateway for developers to interface directly with ZetaChain — a portal to communicate easily, remotely, and with no need to go through the DevOps of establishing their own ZetaChain nodes.
Ankr is providing a geo-distributed ZetaChain RPC comprised of blockchain nodes running worldwide for incredibly low-latency and reliable connections.
How Do the ZetaChain RPCs Help Developers?
Building with ZetaChain is an excellent choice to create interoperable and scalable dApps but requires access to the information on ZetaChain nodes to do so. Therefore, Ankr’s RPC solves the following developer troubles:
Eliminates complex node ops: Ankr’s ZetaChain RPCs will completely remove the need for many developers to set up their own ZetaChain 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 ZetaChain req/sec
- Dedicated ZetaChain endpoints
- Prioritized requests
- WebSockets (WS) capabilities
Powers apps and open-source software that need access to ZetaChain: Connect with a cluster of high-performance nodes that holds the information you need to build and operate dApps with ZetaChain chain capabilities.
Supports the ZetaChain network: Ankr will strengthen the ZetaChain network globally by offering easier development and a broader, decentralized node infrastructure.
