Ankr (ANKR/USD), a leading Web3 infrastructure provider, now providers RPC (Remote Procedure Call) to the Aptos, becoming the first RPC provider to bring this support to the scalable Layer-1 blockchain.
The support will see developers tap into the Aptos Testnet Community as well as Premium RPCs, with ease of access to request calls set to come with information returns reflecting the results developers would receive when running Aptos full nodes.
Ankr’s RPC support to benefit the Aptos blockchain
Aptos, which is has the backing of major crypto-focused venture firms such as Andreessen Horowitz, Coinbase Ventures, FTX Ventures, and Binance Labs, can now benefit from increased developer activity leveraging the Ankr product, the two firms said in a press release to Invezz.
Ankr’s Aptos Testnet RPC links the Aptos blockchain to wallets, command-line interfaces, and decentralised applications (dApps). The service thus acts as a blockchain router (or messenger), with on-chain information relayed across the ecosystem for the execution of key tasks such as network transactions, and populating of wallet balances.
The collaboration comes ahead of Aptos’ mainnet launch expected before the end of the year. In comment on the development, Ankr Head of Product Josh Neuroth said it’s the beginning of more product integrations that will drive developer activity and user demand as the mainnet draws closer. He noted in a statement:
“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.”
Ankr plans to add support for additional features meant to boost Aptos’ Web3 developer community, with the new features and tools coming after the Aptos mainnet goes live.
With the Aptos partnership, Ankr’s RPC support is now available on 19 blockchain networks, including Ethereum, BNB Chain, Avalanche, Solana, and Polygon.
