Ankr launches developer tools for Binance Smart Chain

ANKR | 06.29| 93

We are proud to announce our latest offering to the crypto community: a Binance Chain API endpoint that allows developers to work with:

To let developers get started with building on Binance Chain immediately, we provide access to a limited number of API requests for free, with pricing to be announced at a later date.

The service we are providing is very similar to what Infura does for Ethereum developers: provide the tools and platform necessary so that developers can focus on what they do best, adding value to the community through their creations.

Why use Ankr’s Binance Chain API services?

While developers have been able to access the Binance Chain through deploying a node on our platform since December of last year, accessing Binance Chain through this API offers distinct advantages compared to spinning up your own node.

The main reason is that the API is load-balanced, meaning that work and requests are distributed across deployed resources. This allows developers to focus all their efforts on developing the core product and outsource infrastructure scaling to us over at Ankr.

Additional benefits include accelerated initialization times. Even with Binance’s state sync mode deploying a node with Ankr or using our API will be much quicker, if fast deployment time is mission critical for your project.

Getting started with the Binance Chain API

Ready to get started? Great, it’s as easy as:

  1. Login to your Ankr account (sign up here if you haven’t)
  2. In the sidebar to the left click APIs
  3. Select the Binance Chain application, click Create API and select the network you want to use.
Choose between the testnet and mainnet networks of Binance Chain and Binance Smart Chain.

And you’re all good to go! From there, you can view the status of the API, Binance API documentation, as well as quickly copy the API Endpoint if you need to input it elsewhere.

The easy to use UI shows your API endpoint and the number of requests.

And that’s it! Create your API Endpoint and get started on developing the next big dAPP today!

In addition to Binance Chain API services, we are also working on supporting the Binance Chain Staking Validators. Stay tuned for more news around this very first, one-click solution to stake and earn BNB tokens!
