Get Started with Binance Chain

Wallet

The easiest way to use Binance Chain is through a wallet with support for Binance Chain accounts and transfers.

For example, Binance provides a Web Wallet at https://www.binance.org
Binance also provides Web Wallet for testnet at https://testnet.binance.org
Both provide the functions below:

  • Generating crypto keys and addresses, which serves as the base of a wallet
  • Showing the balances of assets on the addresses
  • Sending and receiving assets

Binance Chain Web Wallet also presents a trading UI similar to Binance.com, where you can examine market data and manage your orders to trade among the listed assets.

Node RPC

There are data seed nodes in the network which allow users to perform low-level operations like executing ABCI queries, viewing network/consensus state or broadcasting a transaction. If you run a full node by yourself, you can also use those RPC functions. Here is a list of all the Node RPC services it provides: node-rpc
