ANKR | 05.23| 81

We continue our journey to bring user-friendly and affordable node hosting solutions to blockchain communities around the globe by partnering with a major player in the Chinese public blockchain space: IOST.

Our commitment to build infrastructure for deploying any blockchain node instantly distributed across the globe in just a few easy clicks, aligns with IOST’s mission in growing their global node ecosystem which to date has attracted over 400 nodes worldwide.

Ankr and IOST will leverage their mutual networks and communities to benefit the growth of the IOST node network and usage of Ankr’s node as-a-service solutions, enabling all community members to run an IOST node using Ankr and further secure and decentralize the IOST mainnet.

It is a great pleasure to work with Ankr, the first ever one-click blockchain node platform. Thanks to our partnership, it’s now easier and more convenient to become a Servi node on IOST. We are determined to make IOST a more accessible and decentralized public chain. said IOST Co-founder & CTO Terry Wang

How will Ankr benefit the IOST ecosystem?

Our purpose at Ankr is to take away any possible barriers for users to participate in any major blockchain network.To achieve this, we focus heavily on ease of use and affordable pricing of our node hosting solutions.

The Ankr node market offers over 40 different nodes.

We have developed a one-click node deployment application for IOST nodes, which is now available in our node market. This is the most straightforward and effortless way to set up an IOST full node and participate in the IOST network.

Once deployed, you will have access to an advanced but user-friendly interface where you can manage your node and the associated wallet. Any updates to the node will be automatically implemented by Ankr.

Participants can become a Servi node or a Partner node by staking tokens (this process is called voting) and start earning rewards from the IOST reward pool.

By utilizing idle resources from enterprise-grade data centers spread across 5 continents, we are able to provide hosting at much lower cost and more decentralized than centralized public cloud providers such as Amazon AWS and DigitalOcean.

Ankr provides the cheapest and easiest way to deploy and run an IOST node, at only 149.00 USD per month, with the same specs and a lot less manual work to set up and maintain the node. Moreover, the globally distributed nature of our servers instantly increases resilience and stability.
