Deploying and interacting with EVM-based smart contracts on Astar is as easy as any other EVM-compatible network. Getting started requires just two steps:
- Configuring (and funding) your Ethereum account on the respective network.
- Adding Astar networks to your Ethereum client.
For Astar and Shiden applications, we highly recommend running your own network node and not relying on our RPC endpoints. This further decentralizes the network, and puts you in control of your uptime requirements.
