How to Connect to Astar

It’s easy to connect to your Astar infrastructure via RPC or WebSocket.

If you haven’t already configured any Astar infrastructure, visit the Astar marketplace page to learn more about Blockdaemon’s Astar options.

Once you have purchased your Blockdaemon Astar infrastructure, your Blockdaemon Technical Account Manager (TAM) will send you the necessary access credentials.

Note: These are one-time view, so make sure to copy them.

In this guide, we will cover the following simple methods of connection to your infrastructure:


Astar RPC Connection via cURL

curl -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Authorization: Bearer YOUR_AUTH_TOKEN" -d '{"id":1, "jsonrpc":"2.0", "method": "YOUR_RPC_METHOD"}' https://YOUR_ENDPOINT_URL/para-http-rpc
  • Replace YOUR_AUTH_TOKEN with the Auth Token sent by your Blockdaemon TAM
  • Replace YOUR_RPC_METHOD with your chosen RPC method
  • Replace YOUR_ENDPOINT_URL with the Endpoint URL sent by your Blockdaemon TAM

Astar Connection via WebSocket

wscat \
  -H "Authorization: Bearer YOUR_AUTH_TOKEN" \
  -c wss://YOUR_ENDPOINT_URL/para-websocket
Connected (press CTRL+C to quit)
> {"id":1, "jsonrpc":"2.0", "method": "YOUR_RPC_METHOD"}
  • Replace YOUR_AUTH_TOKEN with the Auth Token sent by your Blockdaemon TAM.
  • Replace YOUR_ENDPOINT_URL with the Endpoint URL sent by your Blockdaemon TAM.
  • Replace YOUR_RPC_METHOD with your chosen RPC method.
