In our previous blog post, we created a series of onboarding videos for those who signed up for a new account at Anyblock. This time, we want to share more about the advanced features you have on your Account page. These features are more developer-focused.
We explain how you can connect your SQL client to our PostgreSQL database and how you can use our SQL features through your Account page at Anyblock.
We share our JSON RPC API configuration process and how you can check RPC endpoints directly via our Account interface.
Lastly, we provide a manual on how you can submit meta-information about your contracts and tokens through your Account page.
Let’s dive in.
How to manage SQL access and databases at Anyblock
First, you need to have an account at Anyblock. By creating one, you can retrieve your access credentials to our SQL database. Even a simple free account would do it for 30-days.
Third, you need to set up your SQL connection through our API. In PGadmin, right-click on Servers in the side panel, then select Create > Server. There you can configure the connection using your access credentials available in the SQL Access tab of your Anyblock Account page.
If you are stuck, feel free to check our documentation. We provide SQL tutorials, usage examples, and more in our Documentation Hub. We put the SQL docs link in the header of your SQL tab on your Account page.
How to configure your JSON-RPC API at Anyblock
Our JSON-RPC Node API is one of our most beloved products. You can configure the usage directly through your Account page.
To access it, you need to have an account at Anyblock. Our JSON-RPC works via our API, so to use it, you need to have an API key to access it. After creating an account, grab your API key as well in the API Keys tab. Check our previous blog post on how you can create an account and create an API key here.
Once you have the key, go to your RPC tab on your Account page. There you can find all the URLs to the RPC endpoints for all our supported networks. You can copy the links with a click of a button.

How to submit smart contract ABI at Anyblock?
Second, go to the Enrichments tab on your Account page. You have two options to submit an ABI. You can upload a JSON object for your contract or token, or you can push an ABI on the contract name directly.
To upload a JSON object, pick your preferred network from the dropdown list, add the address information, choose a type, then upload the JSON file. The process is similar to pushing an ABI, but you add the ABI JSON Array directly via our interface.
We conveniently placed our documentation on our JSON tool below the header. You can browse the Swagger documentation for more information as well.
