What to do when RPC is slow/not connecting?

If you’re having trouble on any RPC (node) on DeFi networks, you can try alternative URL’s. This can happen when chains have lots of activity and a node gets overloaded - we usually call this congestion.

The website below (CoinTool) has multiple RPC links and includes information about the current ping (ms) to each server. Lower is better.
