How to Connect to Fantom

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

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

Once you have purchased your Blockdaemon Fantom infrastructure, Your Blockdaemon Technical Account Manager (TAM) will send you the necessary access credentials. There are multiple ways to use these to connect to your node/cluster.

In this guide, we will show you how to connect to Fantom via cURL

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


Fantom RPC Connection via cURL

Step 1 – Your TAM will send you the following access credentials:

  • Your Unique Endpoint URL

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

Step 2 – Add your access credentials to a cURL request.

curl -X POST -H 'Authorization: Bearer 'YOUR_AUTH_TOKEN' \
