BNB RPC connection via cURL

Use cURL to establish a BNB RPC connection with the following command:

  • Replace YOUR_RPC_METHOD with your chosen RPC method.
  • Replace YOUR_PARAMS with your selected RPC parameters.
  • Replace YOUR_ENDPOINT_URL with the Endpoint URL in the Blockdaemon app.

wscat is a tool that can connect over WebSocket(s) and may need to be installed. You can use your preferred tool of choice.
