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.
Questions or feedback? You can discuss and obtain community support on Palm Discord.
