Ankr announces a strategic partnership with Pocket Network
Ankr will work together with Pocket Network to ensure a major push towards a fully decentralised infrastructure for the betterment of the entire Web3 ecosystem.
Ankr announced that it has partnered with Pocket Network, a blockchain data ecosystem for Web3 dApps.
According to the press release shared with CryptoAdvisor, the partnership will see the two entities make a major push towards a fully decentralized infrastructure for the betterment of the entire Web3 ecosystem.
The partnership will see the two entities combine their strength to enable the thousands of builders, wallets, and dApps interacting with blockchains via their RPC services to reach a high-performance and fully decentralised pool of nodes.
Ankr is a protocol that allows whitelisted providers to supply nodes to their network. Thanks to this latest development, Pocket Network has become the most decentralised and largest provider currently within the Ankr ecosystem.
Greg Gopman, the Chief Marketing Officer at Ankr, commented that;
“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.”
Pocket Network is a strategic partner because it currently has a globally distributed network of 44,000 nodes.
This latest development means that Pocket Network has become one of the go-to node providers serving blockchain requests coming through Ankr Protocol to both the Harmony and IoTeX chains.
The Ankr team said its protocol would become more distributed than ever before following this partnership. Thus, giving users anywhere the lowest latency connections.
The partnership will also result in developers and dApps connecting to the most popular blockchains in the fastest and most decentralised manner possible.
The Ankr team said as the protocol continues to decentralise its infrastructure and diversify node providers, the partnership with Pocket Network allows it to serve Web3 as a more collaborative protocol versus a centralized entity.
