Below is a list of RPC endpoints you can use to connect to arabica-9 Devnet:
Bridge, full, and light nodes
Full and light nodes ONLY
These RPC endpoints do not allow you to download full blocks from them. We advise that if you are running a bridge node, that you also run a local full consensus node in order to download full blocks from it.
The API endpoint is to allow users to interact with the REST API in Cosmos SDK which is implemented using gRPC-gateway, which exposes gRPC endpoints as REST endpoints. This allows for communication with the node using REST calls, which can be useful if the client does not support gRPC or HTTP2. The default port is 1317.
The gRPC endpoint is to allow users to interact with a Celestia Node using gRPC, a modern open-source and high-performance RPC framework. The default port is 9090. In the Cosmos SDK, gRPC is used to define state queries and broadcast transactions.
