Ankr Protocol partners with Pocket Network to improve Web3 infrastructure
As the Internet has progressed, its impact on us has become more pervasive, affecting everything from what we read, to items we buy, to the types of entertainment we stream and how we interact.
Web3 is leveling the playing field by using blockchain to decentralize administration, reduce the influence of large corporations such as Google or Meta, and make the system more democratic.

On May 26, Ankr Protocol, one of the fastest growing Web3 infrastructure providers in the world, announced its collaboration with Pocket Network, a blockchain data ecosystem for decentralized Web3 applications.
As a result, Pocket Network is now a node provider on the Ankr protocol, allowing its node managers to generate revenue by supplying nodes to the Ankr protocol network.
This collaboration gives thousands of developers, wallets, and decentralized applications (dApps) that interact with blockchains through their RPC services access to a high-performance, decentralized pool of nodes.
Greg Gopman, Chief Marketing Officer at Ankr, said:
“Pocket’s integration with the Ankr protocol marks a new era of coverage and decentralization for Ankr and our customers. We love what Pocket started and the passionate community they fostered. We’re excited to have them join our journey to build the best Web3 infrastructure solutions.“,
Currently, Pocket Network has an infrastructure of 44,000 nodes scattered around the world. Today, it has become one of the most sought-after node providers for Harmony and IoTeX chains, catering to blockchain requests arriving via the Ankr protocol.
The more traffic Pocket Network serves, the better its native coin, POKT, will perform. It offers Pocket Network’s developers, token holders, and node providers a tremendous incentive.
Interestingly, in the very first week of the deal, usage of Pocket Network’s Harmony and IoTeX nodes increased by 30%.
The Ankr protocol currently executes an average of six billion blockchain requests every day on over 50 different chains. Thanks to this collaboration, the Ankr protocol will be more widely distributed than ever, providing users with the lowest latency interactions anywhere.
This will result in developers and decentralized applications connecting to the most popular blockchains as quickly and decentralized as possible.
As Ankr continues to decentralize its infrastructure and diversify its node providers, this partnership allows it to offer Web3 as a collaborative protocol instead of a centralized structure.
