Binance Smart Chain is one of the most sought-after Layer 1 blockchains out there, boasting a rapidly growing, vibrant ecosystem of projects including PancakeSwap, BakerySwap, and others. More and more teams are looking to build their products on top of BSC — but there is a lack of easy-to-use and convenient tools for developers who want to keep growing with the network.

Ankr meets this growing demand with a set of products and services for Binance Smart Chain that we have been committed to building since 2020. Our goal is to make it easy for teams to focus on their product and outsource the infrastructure scaling to us.

Our most popular services include:

BNB staking through

Through StakeFi you top up a validator in the Binance Smart Chain network, Ankr enables you to stake BNB and get the highest APY. You can stake any amount of BNB (minimum 1 BNB) to get staking rewards.

ETH staking on Binance Smart Chain

You can stake Binance Smart Chain-pegged (BEP-20) ETH tokens with Ankr’s liquid staking services. Similar to conventional liquid ETH staking enabled by Ankr Staking, depositing BEP-20 ETH to our protocol will earn you the same rewards as well as provide you with instant liquidity through the aETH BEP-20 token, which you can redeem according to your ETH stake. You can then keep it in your own custody or use it to earn yield in DeFi protocols. In depth guide on how to stake ETH on BSC here.

Binance Smart Chain API endpoint and archive node

Ankr provides the only easy-to-use Binance Smart Chain API on the market with balanced load and increased initialization times. When you deploy a BSC API you can choose between an or a node, depending on how you want to use those services. If you want to access older information from the ledger, you will choose an archive one.

After deciding which type of node you need, you will receive 2 endpoints: an RPC and a Web-Socket (to be released soon). Now depends on what use cases you have on your dApp. If you want a continuous stream of information coming from the blockchain, you’ll use the WS endpoint. Otherwise, if you want to make a call at some specific point in time, you will use the RPC endpoint.

Usually, to access the chain, developers need to spin up and maintain their own infrastructure — or delegate/outsource it to Ankr, whose BSC API service offers distinct advantages such as fast request response times compared to self-hosted solutions.

Getting started with the Binance Smart Chain API

Ready to get started? Great, it’s as easy as:

  • Login to your Ankr account
  • In the sidebar to the left click APIs
  • Select the Binance Smart Chain application, choose form Binance Smart Chain or Binance Smart Chain Archive
  • Select the network you want to use

You are done! You can see your API RPC Endpoint and WSS(soon to be added)

The Binance Smart Chain Archive Node will be live on June 1st!
