Ankr partners with Pocket Network to power Web3 infrastructure

Ankr, one of the fastest growing Web3 infrastructure providers in the world, officially announces its partnership with Pocket Network, a blockchain data ecosystem for Web3 dApps. This partnership is a major step towards a fully decentralized infrastructure for the improvement of the entire Web3 ecosystem.

Pocket Network and Ankr team up

Since Ankr and Pocket Network are some of the biggest advocates of creating a decentralized node infrastructure to align with the true ethos of Web3, it was only a matter of time before they shake hands. Pocket Network has become a node provider on the Ankr protocol, allowing its node managers to generate revenue by supplying nodes to the Ankr protocol network.

Ankr and Pocket Network have joined forces to enable the thousands of builders, wallets, and dApps interacting with blockchains through their RPC services to achieve a high-performance, fully decentralized pool of nodes. The Ankr protocol allows whitelisted providers to provide nodes to its network, with Pocket Network being the most decentralized and largest provider ever added.

Greg Gopman, Chief Marketing Officer at Ankr, said:

“Pocket’s integration into the Ankr protocol marks a new era of coverage and decentralization for Ankr and our customers. We love what Pocket has started and the passionate community they’ve fostered. We’re thrilled to have them join our journey to create the best Web3 infrastructure solutions.

Pocket Network has a globally distributed network of 44,000 nodes. It has now become one of the go-to node providers that process blockchain requests through the Ankr protocol to Harmony and IoTeX chains. The more traffic Pocket Network serves, the better for their native token, POKT. This gives a strong incentive to developers, token holders, and node providers of Pocket Network.

In the very first week of the partnership, Pocket Network saw a 30% increase in usage of its Harmony and IoTeX nodes.

The Ankr protocol processes an average of six billion blockchain requests per day across more than 50 chains. As a result of this partnership, Ankr Protocol will become more distributed than ever, providing users everywhere with the lowest latency connections. This will allow developers and dApps to connect to the most popular blockchains in the fastest and most decentralized way possible.

As Ankr continues to decentralize its infrastructure and diversify node providers, this collaboration allows it to serve Web3 as a more collaborative protocol compared to a centralized entity.

Pocket Network is a blockchain data ecosystem for Web3 applications that uses profitable economics to coordinate and distribute data at scale. With Pocket, the use of blockchains can be simply integrated into websites, mobile apps, IoT (Internet of Things), and more, giving developers the freedom to put blockchain-enabled apps into the ” pocket” of every mainstream consumer.
