Getting Started with Tangle Network
Before you dive into development, it's crucial to familiarize yourself with the different networks within the Tangle ecosystem.
|Network||Network Type||Native Asset Symbol||Native Asset Decimals|
Developer tools may require specific configurations for the Tangle Network. Use the following details:
|Public RPC URLs|
|Public WSS URLs|
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.
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.

Before starting development on our TestNets, fund your account with tTNT tokens, strictly intended for testing purposes and devoid of real-world value. You can obtain this at Webb Faucet (opens in a new tab)

As an Ethereum-compatible, Substrate-based chain, Tangle Network allows for the use of both Substrate and Ethereum tools.

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.
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.
