OnFinality, a multi-chain infrastructure provider, announces support for krest, peaq’s canary network

We are proud to be announcing RPC support for peaq’s sister network, krest, the world’s first simulation network for DePIN and the Economy of Things.

“The integration with OnFinality’s API and Node infrastructure offers crucial support to the peaq community, facilitating fast and reliable access to the krest blockchain for builders. ”

— Leonard Dorlöchter, co-founder of peaq

OnFinality provides easy to use, reliable and scalable API endpoints for builders to deploy and run their dApps on krest quickly and easily!

What is krest

krest is peaq’s canary network — the world’s first and only Economy of Things simulation network. krest is your home for socio-economic, technical, community, and governance innovation and experimentation within the peaq ecosystem.

Launch dApps and tools for the Economy of Things and assess their impact in a live environment on a public blockchain network, without running the risk of causing real-world harm.

By connecting to krest with OnFinality’s API endpoints, builders will be able to:

  • Access the krest blockchain 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 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 krest (Public endpoints have a reasonable rate limit applied).

Simply sign up to app.onfinality.io to receive your free API key in minutes! Our ‘Free Plan’ comes with 500,000 daily responses for anyone to get started easily.

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?
