3rd party RPC providers

Developers can use the services of the following 3rd party providers:

  • Thirdweb RPC URL:
  • SigmaCore RPC URL: (increased-limit packages available)
  • NowNodes RPC URL: (requires API key)
  • Envio RPC URL: (optimized read-only)

We recommend developers to use these RPC providers over our public RPC URL as they provide better performance and stability.

IPFS Storage

We highly recommend that developers fetch and store profile or asset data using their own IPFS gateway solutions like Pinata or Infura for production needs, ensuring distribution and availability across the IPFS network. We do not provide an official gateway for uploading asset data. For development purposes, you may use the following RPC to fetch data:

This gateway is intended for development purposes. We do not guarantee any SLA, and rate limits may apply.
