Ankr Strengthens Sui
Ankr’s partnership with Sui is important because it provides on-chain developers with the ability to build safe, scalable, and upgradable dApps on the Sui blockchain. By partnering with Ankr, Sui is able to tap into Ankr’s expertise in distributed ledger technology (DLT) infrastructure and solutions. In turn, this partnership helps Ankr expand its reach into new markets and geographies.
As we look ahead to the launch of the Sui mainnet, let’s take a closer look at how Ankr is strengthening the global Sui network.
The Ankr network is a cloud computing platform that enables users to “stake” their digital assets in return for rewards. The Ankr team recently announced a partnership with Coinbase, which will see Ankr integrated into the Coinbase Custody platform. This integration will allow users to earn staking rewards on a variety of proof-of-stake (PoS) networks, including Ethereum, Solana, Polygon, and Binance Coin (BNB). The partnership is a boost for Ankr, which now has 39 different PoS chains supported on its platform. In addition to the increased exposure that comes with being listed on Coinbase Custody, the partnership will also help Ankr to attract new users and grow its ecosystem. The Ankr team is clearly ambitious and is working hard to position itself as the go-to platform for staking digital assets. With the Coinbase partnership providing a major boost, it will be interesting to see how Ankr develops in the coming months.
Ankr to Provide Geo-Distributed and Decentralized RPC for Sui Mainnet Launch
When the Sui mainnet launches, Ankr will provide a geo-distributed and decentralized RPC (remote procedure call) service with multiple blockchain nodes across the globe. By supporting the Sui mainnet in this way, we are helping to ensure that the global Sui network remains both strong and secure.
Partnering with Ankr also allows on-chain developers to build safe, scalable, and upgradable dapps on the Sui blockchain. Our team at Ankr has extensive experience in distributed ledger technology infrastructure and solutions. As such, we are uniquely positioned to help businesses in this space succeed. This partnership helps us expand our reach into new markets and geographies as well.
The incentivized network, or testnet, went live last week. This network is only transitory and is expected to last around two to three weeks. The mainnet launch will be the next big event for the team. After the Sui mainnet is live, transactions will be processed on a public blockchain. The public blockchain launch is significant because it represents a key milestone in the project roadmap. Once the public blockchain is operational, users will be able to interact with smart contracts and send transactions without having to trust a centralized entity. This will enable a wide range of new use cases and open up Sui to a larger audience. The team is currently working hard to ensure that the mainnet launch goes smoothly and that all users have a positive experience.
Ankr Nodes Running on AWS Cloud in Multiple Regions
To provide the RPC service for the Sui mainnet launch, our team has been working hard to get Ankr nodes running on the AWS cloud in multiple regions around the globe. This ensures that there is minimal latency no matter where users are located. In addition, we have also been working on integrating the Sharkey cache into our node configuration. This will help reduce bandwidth usage by up to 95%.
