Ankr (ANKR/USD) is essentially a decentralized blockchain infrastructure provider that can operate an array of different nodes on a global scale across numerous Proof-of-Stake (PoS) networks.
It features an infrastructure that can help drive the growth of the crypto economy while also powering multi-chain tools available to Web3 users.
Binance Labs’ strategic investment as a catalyst for growth
Through an official announcement on August 11, 2022, Binance said that Binance Lab has made a strategic investment in Ankr.
Binance Labs is the venture capital arm and accelerator of Binance. The funds are aimed at ramping up the work on Ankr’s remote procedure call (RPC) service whilst building out the Web3 developer suite.
Ankr was originally launched in 2017 and provides builders with streamlined access to a global network of nodes that run on 18 different blockchains.
Ankr has previously made open-source contributions to the BNB Chain and to BNB Liquid Staking.
Furthermore, it assisted in building out BNB Chain’s core infrastructure and improved the BNB ecosystem by implementing the Ergon and Archive node upgrades alongside the BNB Application Sidechain (BAS) scalability solution.
The Erigon upgrade specifically reduced BNB Chain’s storage requirement by 75% while also increasing the RPC performance tenfold. This also led to a synchronization process that is 100 times faster.
