# Pre-requisite Readings
# Client Integrations
# Command Line Interface
Ethermint is integrated with a CLI client that can be used to send transactions and query the state from each module.
# Client Servers
# REST and Tendermint RPC
Ethermint exposes REST endpoints for all the integrated Cosmos-SDK modules. This makes it easier for wallets and block explorers to interact with the proof-of-stake logic.
To run the REST Server, you need to run the Ethermint daemon (
ethermintd) and then execute (in another
You should see the logs from the REST and the RPC server.
# Ethereum JSON-RPC server
Ethermint also supports most of the standard web3 JSON-RPC APIs to connect with existing web3 tooling.
Some of the JSON-RPC API namespaces are currently under development.
To connect to the JSON-PRC server, use the
rest-server command as shown on the section above. Then, you can point any Ethereum development tooling to
http://localhost:8545 or whatever port you choose with the listen address flag (
