The open tezos docs suggest using RPC URL: "https://florencenet.smartpy.io/". It does not work.

What alternatives RPC URLs do you use. It seems that when you use the mainnet RPC URL - things tend to work. Any others for testing.

florencenet is a dead testing network, that's why it doesn't work. You need to use a current testing network RPC. The current testing network mimicking mainnet is hangzhounet.

If you want to test the next protocol, use ithacanet RPC.


This RPC node also works well https://hangzhounet.api.tez.ie/

  • That's the one I go for now
