Planq General FAQ

What is the difference between Planq Chain and Planq Chain?

  • Planq is an EVM-compatible (Ethereum Virtual Machine) chain powered by Ethermint, built on the Cosmos SDK, which allows rapid porting of apps and smart contracts from Ethereum and EVM-compatible chains. On Planq, users pay transaction fees in the $PLQ cryptocurrency.
If you are an application developer who is creating smart contracts in Solidity and would like to deploy decentralized applications in a permissionless environment, Planq is suitable for your needs.

Who is currently running as a validator on Planq?

Planq uses Proof of Stake (POS) consensus, a streamlined and scalable consensus mechanism based on the Tendermint POS consensus.
There are currently 59 validators supporting the Planq network, all backed by our growing community. (see the list here).

What is the chain-ID for Planq Mainnet?

  • Ethereum Chain ID: 7070
  • Cosmos Chain ID: planq_7070-2

What are the rate limits of the free JSON-RPC EVM endpoint for Planq?

  • Planq Mainnet: rate limit is 300 req/min/IP
If the limit is exceeded, the IP gets blocked for 1 minute. If you are expecting to consistently make more requests than what limits allow, you may consider setting up your own full node or contacting a commercial JSON-RPC endpoint provider (see Dev Tools & Integrations). You can also reach out to us on Discord for assistance.

If I increase the gas price, does it help to speed up my transaction?

The current mempool setting works on a first-come-first-serve manner. The Planq network does not yet support transaction prioritization using gas price or priority fee.
