QuikNode does not support the personal module on either Geth or Parity.

This is for security, as online nodes should not hold wallet or key information.

You can still send signed transactions via the eth_sendRawTransaction call (https://github.com/ethereum/wiki/wiki/JSON-RPC#eth_sendrawtransaction).

For more information on ETH wallet/account best practices, check out "https://pastebin.com/1qJPMP74" (on using ethers Ethereum wallet library).

You shouldn't need to set port when using the RPC URL, but if you need to 443 should work.

Check out the QuikStart guides in the UI for examples on how to integrate QuikNode into your app: QuikNode Guides

whether the API support send transaction or support sending ERC20 token: yes: https://infura.io/docs/ethereum/json-rpc/eth_sendRawTransaction

this is calling contract actually)?:


supprt creating accounts also :

No, this is not something you do on chain.


No for creating accounts. You don't "create" an account on blockchain, you actually claim an address and its private key based on an algorithm.

Yes you can send transaction. An ERC20 token is a smart contract. Please read documentation about smart contracts.

It tooks me 5 minutes to find these information. Please make your own research first.
