Vince Chain RPC Mirrors

You may run many nodes on Vince Chain. However, validators may need to notify the dev team for more details on how to navigate the process. You may contact the team on Telegram to do so. That said, you may use any of the following Vince Chain EVM RPCs:
  • evm.vce.network
  • jsonrpc-vincechain.nodestake.top
  • draco.vce.network
  • rpc.vce.network

Adding Vince Chain to Keplr

Install Keplr on your Chromium browser by visiting https://www.keplr.app/.
Sign in to your existing wallet by entering your password or seed phrase. Or set up your new wallet account using any of the three sign-in methods.
  • One-click Google sign-in
  • Seed phrase/mnemonics method (create a new account or import existing account)
  • Connect external or hardware wallet (eg. Ledger and Keystone)
Sign in to Keplr
You can connect your Keplr wallet to Vince Chain once you sign into your wallet. The Vince Chain mainnet network is already built into Keplr; simply search Vince Chain by clicking on the extension and scrolling to select the network.
You should receive the default mainnet network configurations for Keplr. Open your site/project (having a testnet configuration); a window will request your approval for the chain and the Chain-id. Once approved, the testnet will be selectable under the Beta support section of Keplr Wallet.

Using Vince Chain DApp

Upon launching Vince Chain's dApp, you can interact with both the EVM and Cosmos SDK. Simply visit https://vincechain.com and click Launch App to get started. You can access Vince Chain's features and, including staking, governance, validator delegation, among other things. You can get started by signing in through Metamask or Keplr using our RPC EVM details.

Installing a Vince Chain Node

You can install and sync a Vince Chain full node directly to the blockchain. You can also run a validator node or private EVM RPC node.
Build and install the Vince Chain binaries from the source or use Docker or Kubernetes.
