Getting Started with Tangle Network

Networks in the Tangle Ecosystem

Before you dive into development, it's crucial to familiarize yourself with the different networks within the Tangle ecosystem.

Network Configurations

Developer tools may require specific configurations for the Tangle Network. Use the following details:

Chain ID4006
Public RPC URLs
Public WSS URLswss://

Types for Chain Integration

To find the latest types for Tangle Network, visit the lookup.tsx file in our Github repo. (opens in a new tab) It automatically produces a full file of the types for the network on changes.

Block Explorers

We will offer two types of block explorers to accommodate the Ethereum API and Substrate API. Transactions based on the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) can be accessed through the Ethereum API. Conversely, the Substrate API is your go-to for native Substrate operations such as governance and staking. While the Substrate API does provide some details about EVM-based transactions, the information it presents is somewhat limited.

Participating in the Tangle Network

Joining the Tangle Network community is easy. You can run a node, develop a Dapp, or contribute to our open-source codebase. For more information, visit our Node Operation Guide, and Contribution Guide.

Looking Ahead: Mainnet Launches

Our official Mainnet launch date is forthcoming, so stay tuned! Post-launch, we'll continue to improve the network, working with our community to ensure that Tangle Network remains secure, robust, and user-friendly.
