Configure BlockVision's RPC Node on Ethereum

Follow this guide and we will show you how to use BlockVision’s ultra fast node to interact with Ethereum Mainnet and Testnet.
  • The default node for Ethereum set in your Web 3.0 wallet can be too congested, cause slow transactions, extra high Gas fees and even connection issues.
  • Want to be informed directly to your Discord, Telegram or Slack instantly when a transaction you sent is verified or dropped?
  • Want to be able to see all your event history?
  • Want to use an ultra fast-node, with high-availability and lightning fast response times?
Follow this guide and we will show you how to use BlockVision’s ultra fast node to interact with Ethereum Mainnet and Testnet.
