ANKR | 06.05| 62

Ankr has entered into a strategic partnership with Elrond to enable easy and affordable node deployment for Elrond Nodes on our cloud platform. This collaboration aims to synchronize the capabilities of the Ankr platform with the specific needs of operating Elrond infrastructure.

The end-goal is to provide node operators with all the needed features to run an Elrond Validator on the mainnet at maximum capacity, in an intuitive and easy to set-up environment which can be paid for in cryptocurrency.

“The drive to be a part of the new economy, and contribute to the internet-scale blockchain’s security & efficiency should not be met with technical obstacles. We are happy to soon be able to offer our supporters the means to set up & run an Elrond node with Ankr’s intuitive platform.” said Beniamin Mincu, Elrond CEO

To demonstrate our capabilities and progress already, and to prepare in the very best way for the Elrond mainnet launch, Ankr will provide 15 distinguished non-technical members of the Elrond community with exclusive access to Elrond Ankr nodes and use them to join Battle of Nodes. They will do their best to climb the leaderboards, boosted by the always-on infrastructure, do battle with all the tools at their disposal and will report back with their findings.

“Competitions are exciting because they give us the chance to shine and show off our capabilities. We’re happy to take on the challenge of providing tools for Battle of Nodes and look forward to be able to host mainnet Elrond nodes in our data centers across the globe” said Chandler Song, CEO of Ankr

The two partners will utilize this final stage of the testnet to add more functionalities to the Ankr application and deliver the very best solution to run Elrond Validators on the mainnet. Our solution is focussed specifically of ease-of-use, without compromising the existing high-level of security.

This event is part of a long-term collaboration between Elrond and Ankr, a strategic partnership where the two teams are working together for their shared vision of a decentralized future.

We are excited to share the progress of our work so far and are looking forward to enabling Elrond node operators access to our distributed hosting options that feature 1-click deployment, intuitive interface and cryptocurrency payment.

About Elrond

Elrond is a new blockchain architecture, designed from scratch to bring a 1000-fold cumulative improvement in throughput and execution speed. To achieve this, Elrond introduces two key innovations: a novel Adaptive State Sharding mechanism, and a Secure Proof of Stake (PoS) algorithm, enabling linear scalability with a fast, efficient, and secure consensus mechanism. Thus, Elrond can process upwards of 10,000 transactions per second (TPS), with 5-second latency, and negligible cost, attempting to become the backbone of a permissionless, borderless, globally accessible internet economy.
