This is the information required to run a node or to develop on the different Flare networks:

The Flare networks

General feature adoption flow.

Configuration Values#

Flare Songbird Coston Coston2
Chain ID 14 19 16 114
Asset Ticker FLR SGB CFLR C2FLR
RPC endpoint BETA flare-api songbird-api coston-api coston2-api
Rosetta API flare-rosetta - - -
Block Explorer flare-explorer songbird-explorer coston-explorer coston2-explorer
Test Faucet - - coston-faucet coston2-faucet

All RPC endpoints are rate-limited to avoid spamming attacks.

Beta

Please note that the offered public RPC endpoints are in an experimental phase and might suffer unexpected downtime.

Sample query

curl -s -m 10 --request POST 'https://flare-api.flare.network/ext/C/rpc' \
    -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
    -d '{
            "jsonrpc":"2.0",
            "method":"eth_blockNumber",
            "params":[],
            "id":1
    }'

Returns the chain height, which should look something like:

{"jsonrpc":"2.0","id":1,"result":"0x103384"}

Additional Notes#

RPC Nodes for Connected Chains#

Along with the endpoints listed above to interact with its own networks, Flare offers public RPC nodes for a series of other blockchain networks, to bootstrap development of connected services like attestation providers.
