If you want to integrate with Nym in order to send
NYM tokens (for instance, if running a
BTC swap application, or using
NYM for payments), then you will need to interact with the Nyx blockchain.
Nyx is the blockchain supporting the Nym network, hosting both the
NYX cryptocurrencies, the CosmWasm smart contracts keeping track of the network, and (coming soon) facilitating zk-Nym credential generation. It is built with the Cosmos SDK.
Check out the integration options in the Integration FAQ.
We recommend that users wanting to integrate with Nyx for cryptocurrency payments set up their own RPC Node, in order to be able to reliably query the blockchain and send transactions without having to worry about relying on 3rd party validators.
The guide to setting up an RPC node can be found here.
