Connect to the Palm network
Use Infura to connect to the Palm network. Infura is a blockchain development suite that provides access to the Ethereum network over HTTPS and WebSockets. Although the Palm network is a separate network from Ethereum, your Infura account and project information is used to authenticate you on the Palm network.
You can also run a transaction node if you don’t want to use the Infura endpoints.
The instructions in this section allow you to connect to the target Palm network environment. You can connect to:
- Palm Testnet: Palm’s testing environment. This is useful as a staging environment and for long-term testing. You can use the Palm Testnet bridge to transfer assets between Palm Testnet and the Ethereum Rinkeby testnet.
- Palm Mainnet: Palm’s production environment. Contracts and accounts in this network hold real value. You can use the Palm Mainnet bridge to transfer assets between Palm Mainnet and Ethereum Mainnet.
