Ankr becomes one of the first RPC providers to the Aptos Blockchain
Aptos blockchain, founded by Meta alumni and the team behind Facebook’s Diem project, has just added Ankr as an RPC infrastructure provider. This partnership comes a month after Ankr partnered with the decentralized Ethereum scaling platform Polygon to enhance the web3 building experience for supernet developers. The collaboration also comes as Aptos prepares to launch its mainnet in the coming weeks.
In a statement on Monday, Ankr announced that it has become one of the first RPC (Remote Procedure Call) providers to Aptos, a safe and scalable Layer-1 blockchain. With this partnership, developers will now access Aptos Testnet Community and Premium RPCs, make request calls, and receive information returns that mirror the results they would get by running an Aptos full node by themselves.
Ankr is one of the world’s largest RPC providers, serving over 8 billion RPC requests a day across more than 50 networks. The partnership will also enable developers to build safe, scalable, and upgradable dApps on top of the Aptos blockchain. Following this partnership, Ankr is now an RPC provider to 19 blockchains including Ethereum, BNB Chain, Solana, Polygon, and Avalanche. An RPC enables various applications to interact with the blockchain.
“Ankr is excited to be an early supporter of Aptos with an RPC that now makes it easy for all developers to start building on the ecosystem. This is just the beginning of Ankr’s products for the blockchain that will doubtlessly attract more demand ahead of the much-anticipated mainnet launch.”
– Josh Neuroth, Ankr’s Head of Product
Once the Aptos mainnet is live, Ankr will add support for it with additional docs, features, and tools to help Web3 developers streamline building. Aptos is the highly anticipated network that will bring new tech and scalability benefits to Web3. Developers building on the Aptos testnet have witnessed over 160,000 transactions per second (TPS), thanks to promising upgrades like their parallel execution engine, Block-STM.
The Ankr Network serves an average of 8 billion blockchain requests per day across more than 50 networks. It delivers time-tested and high-performance RPC node infrastructure to handle any request load, massively expanding Aptos’ public RPC resources.
Ankr’s Aptos Testnet RPC (Remote Procedure Call) connects wallets, command-line interfaces, and dApps with the Aptos blockchain. It acts as a messenger or blockchain router that relays on-chain information between Aptos nodes, dApps, and ultimately end-users so they can execute necessary tasks like transactions, populate wallet balances, fetch ownership information, and more.
To strengthen the global Aptos network, Ankr is providing a geo-distributed and decentralized Aptos RPC composed of many independent blockchain nodes running worldwide for low latency and reliable connections.
Developers can make their first call to Aptos using Ankr’s RPC Service now. They can use the endpoint https://rpc.ankr.com/http/aptos_testnet/v1 to call the Aptos chain using the standard EVM JSON RPC methods.
Aptos is a safe and scalable Layer-1 blockchain founded by Meta alumni. It is backed by a16z, FTX Ventures, Paypal Ventures, Coinbase Ventures, Binance Labs, and other leading investors. With its mainnet launch on the horizon, Aptos promises to be a faster, more scalable, and more secure blockchain than its existing competitors, thanks to its advanced programming language called Move. The Move language and resource model solves many performance and security issues found in most other Layer-1 protocols.
Founded in 2017 by 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.
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.
