Using RSK Public Nodes (Mainnet & Testnet) provided by IOVLabs

Public Nodes

IOVLabs currently provides two public nodes that you can use for testing purposes, and you will find that information below.

Alternatively, follow the installation instructions, to run your own RSK node. This is highly recommended for production environments, and in accordance with the bitcoiners’ maxim: Don’t trust. Verify.
