Ankr partners with Pocket Network in a major push to achieve a fully decentralized infrastructure for the Web3 ecosystem
- Ankr and Pocket Network join forces to achieve a fully decentralized infrastructure for Web3.
- Pocket saw a 30% increase in its nodes’ usage in the first week of the partnership
- Pocket Network is the largest dApps provider added to the list of Ankr’s whitelist providers.
Web3 infrastructure provider Ankr announced today it has partnered with Pocket Network, a blockchain development decentralized applications (dApps) to enhance DApp ecosystems and propel Web3 infrastructure. The partnership is part of a major push to achieve a fully decentralized infrastructure for an enhanced Web3 ecosystem.
As part of the partnership agreement, Pocket Network joined the Ankr Protocol as a node supplier while Pocket Network became a node provider on the Ankr Protocol. The collaboration will also allow Pocket Network’s node runners to earn revenue by supplying nodes to the Ankr Protocol network. In the first week of the agreement, Pocket Network’s Harmony and IoTeX nodes saw a 30 percent increase in usage.
As Anker continues to decentralize its infrastructure and diversify node providers, this collaboration enables it to serve Web3 as a more collaborative protocol rather than just a centralized organization.
Founded in 2017 Chandler Song, Ryan Fang, and Stanley Wu, Ankr is a decentralized Web 3 infrastructure platform for the Web 3 World. Anker’s platform enables users to build, earn, and stake with $ANKR. Ankr currently serves an average of 6 billion blockchain requests per day across over 50 chains.
So far, the two companies have combined their capabilities to provide a high-performance and fully decentralized pool of nodes for the thousands of builders, wallets, and dApps communicating with blockchains via their RPC services. The Ankr Protocol permits whitelisted providers to provide nodes to its network, with Pocket Network being the most decentralized and largest thus far.
Commenting on the partnership, Chief Marketing Officer at Ankr, Greg Gopman said: “Bringing Pocket onto the Ankr Protocol marks a new era of coverage and decentralization for Ankr and our clients. We love what Pocket has started and the passionate community they’ve fostered. We’re thrilled to have them join on our journey to create the best Web3 Infrastructure solutions.”
Ankr is building the future of decentralized infrastructure, servicing over 50 proof-of-stake chains with an industry-leading global node delivery system and a developer toolkit. Ankr Protocol processes over 50 chains and delivers an average of six billion blockchain requests every day Ankr serves over two trillion transactions a year across Web3 and is the RPC partner of choice for 17 blockchains, making it the dominant leader in RPC.
