In addition to providing node infrastructure, Ankr has helped implement upgrades to BSC such as the Erigon client and BAS sidechains which are putting the BSC ecosystem even further ahead as the most popular choice for building dApps.
With Ankr, builders have plenty of options to get started developing applications on the BNB Chain. Ankr makes building on BSC easier for anyone with our public RPC endpoints, Advanced Developer APIs, AnkrScan, and decentralized Web3 infrastructure.

Building on BNB Chain
The Binance ecosystem has grown beyond the Binance Chain that serves as the framework for the Binance decentralized exchange (DEX). The BNB Chain is a chain running in parallel to the Binance Chain that offers smart contract capabilities and is fully compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine, creating a more powerful chain for launching decentralized applications (dApps), Web3 games, DeFi applications, and more.
With these advantages, BNB Chain is one of the most popular blockchains in the world for building new projects due to its incredible scalability and throughput. BSC has seen immense growth as a top choice by developers looking to eliminate the high gas fees and slow speeds that have become associated with legacy chains like Ethereum. BSC’s efficient structure enables vast numbers of users to simultaneously use dApps together, which is very important for high-volume games, DeFi protocols, and other use cases.
BSC has some distinct advantages with full EVM compatibility, fast transactions, low fees, more interoperability, and a powerful network. And now, developing new applications on the BSC network has never been easier, thanks to builder solutions like RPCs and APIs from Ankr.
What Are RPCs?
RPCs, or Remote Procedure Calls, are a type of protocol that enables one computer or program to remotely communicate with another computer or program. In the simplest terms, RPCs enable you to connect to a network. In Web3, RPCs enable developers and their applications to connect to blockchain networks via remote nodes. This is incredibly useful as it means that they don’t need to run or have access to their own physical nodes.
Instead, they can use a node infrastructure provider such as Ankr to build and operate their dApps or any other project they may be working on. Developers can “call” blockchains and request data from them and receive returns as if they were running a full node themselves.
Web3 wallets, for example, can rely on an RPC endpoint to request data from blockchain nodes.
These requests might look something like ‘how many X tokens are in Y wallet?’, or ‘does this user have enough X tokens to cover the gas fee for this transaction?’ To get the answer to those questions, you can use RPCs to query the blockchain for the data you need.
What is the BNB Chain RPC?
The BSC RPC connects your wallet, command-line interface, or dApp with the BSC chain. It acts as a messenger or blockchain router that relays on-chain information between nodes, apps, and ultimately end-users.
The BSC RPC endpoints are the gateways for developers to interface directly with BSC — a portal to communicate easily, remotely, and with no need to go through the DevOps of establishing your own BSC node.
These are decentralized and geo-distributed BSC RPCs comprised of many independent blockchain nodes running worldwide
The BSC Public RPC can be used by anyone, anywhere, at any time, with no email signup, credit card, or other personal information. The Premium BSC offers advanced capabilities for affordable pricing in the ANKR token.Start building
