If you are facing any transaction delays or if the data is taking too long to load on the Dfyn Exchange, it might be because of high congestion on the Polygon network. Since some RPC endpoints may be more busy than others at a given time, changing the RPC endpoint URL may sometimes lead to lower latency and better user experience. In this guide, we will show you how to change the RPC endpoint in MetaMask's Matic network configuration. Additionally, we will also show you how to sign up for a free private RPC endpoint on Infura.
Step 1: Open your MetaMask wallet and click on My Accounts (circular button on the top right) as shown in the figure below.
Step 2: Click on Settings.
Step 3: Go to Networks and select Matic Mainnet.
Step 4: Replace the old RPC endpoint with a new RPC endpoint (given here) and click on Save.
Congratulations, you have successfully changed your RPC endpoint.
Note: It is not guaranteed that changing the RPC endpoint will result in lesser delays.
Creating a Private RPC Endpoint on Infura
During times of high congestion on Public RPCs, you may consider moving to a private RPC endpoint. To create a private RPC endpoint for Polygon, you may use any of these services - Infura, MaticVigil, QuickNode, Chainstack, Ankr. In this guide, let us make a private endpoint using Infura.
