# Exchange Guides#

This section contains information and bits of advice for Exchanges willing to support the Flare blockchain.

The first thing you should know is that:

Flare is used just like Ethereum!

Even though the node code is different, Flare offers the same API as Ethereum so you can integrate with it in the same way.

Node source code github.com/flare-foundation/flare
Node installation documentation docs.flare.xyz/infra/observation/deploying
Node requirements 8 CPU, 16 GB RAM, 2 TB disk space
Maximum block rate 1 block/second.
Token names FLARE, SONGBIRD
Tickers FLR, SGB
Tokens precision 18 decimal places
Supported wallets docs.flare.xyz/user/wallets

Technical information in the Network Configuration section.

Note

The $FLR and $SGB tokens are not ERC-20 tokens: they are the native currency of Flare (the Main network) and Songbird (The Canary network) respectively. As such, these tokens are handled the same way \$ETH is handled on the Ethereum blockchain.
