OnFinality, Polkadot’s leading infrastructure provider, announces support for Pendulum today. Developers can now access a reliable and scalable RPC endpoint to allow them to build and launch their dApps on Pendulum.

This milestone comes thanks to the support from the Polkadot treasury to fund common good infrastructure for the entire Polkadot community. This level of ecosystem support reaffirms Polkadot’s reputation as one of the most developer and innovation friendly ecosystems, and a top choice for app-chain builders when deciding on what layer-0 to build in. OnFinality will be working closely with other infrastructure providers to expand this common good infrastructure programme in the coming weeks.

“In our quest to bridge fiat and DeFi, OnFinality’s API serves as an important tool, opening doors to further possibilities for the Pendulum & Amplitude ecosystems.”

Arjun Yadav, Head of Product, Pendulum

OnFinality is a blockchain infrastructure platform that saves web3 builders time and makes their lives easier. We deliver easy-to-use, reliable and scalable API endpoints for the biggest blockchain networks and empower developers to automatically test, deploy, scale and monitor their own blockchain nodes in minutes.

What is Pendulum? ($PEN)

Pendulum is an open-source blockchain built on the proven Parity Substrate framework, establishing the missing link between fiat and the DeFi ecosystems through a sophisticated smart contract network.

By connecting to Pendulum via OnFinality’s RPC API endpoints, builders will be able to:

  • Access the Pendulum network quickly in minutes without having to set up or manage infrastructure
  • Enjoy global performance, automated scalability and high availability of up to 99.99% uptime target per year!
  • Gain valuable API Insights for you to spot issues on your apps and quickly implement rectifications for a bug-free user experience

We’re providing both public and private endpoints for Pendulum (note that public endpoints may be rate limited for service stability).

For teams looking to take your applications to the next level and ensure that you receive the best performance possible, we highly recommend using an API key. What are the benefits of getting an API key?

Pendulum Public API Endpoints

* Please note that these endpoints may be rate limited to maintain service stability.

For example,you can query the following to get the latest block; curl -H “Content-Type: application/json” -d ‘{“id”:1, “jsonrpc”:”2.0", “method”: “chain_getBlock”}’ ‘https://pendulum.api.onfinality.io/public'
