Ankr, one of the world’s leading Web3 infrastructure providers, today announces that it has become one of the first Remote Procedure Call (RPC) providers to Aptos, a safe and scalable Layer-1 blockchain. Developers can now access Aptos Testnet Community and Premium RPCs, make request calls, and receive information returns that mirror the results they would get by running an Aptos full node by themselves.
Aptos is a scalable Layer-1 blockchain founded by Meta alumni. It is backed by a16z, FTX Ventures, Paypal Ventures, Coinbase Ventures, Binance Labs and other leading investors. With its mainnet launch on the horizon, Aptos claims to be a faster, more scalable and more secure blockchain than its existing competitors, thanks to its advanced programming language called Move. According to the team, the Move language and resource model solves many performance and security issues found in most other Layer-1 protocols.
Ankr services over 50 proof-of-stake chains with an industry-leading global node delivery system and RPC aggregator. An RPC enables various applications to interact with the blockchain. Ankr currently serves over 2 trillion transactions a year across Web3 and is the leading infrastructure provider for BSC, Fantom, and Polygon chains as of 2022. Ankr also offers a suite of developer tools, including the Liquid Staking SDK, Web3 Gaming SDK, and AppChains As a Service, that empower dApp developers to build Web3 apps quickly and easily.
The partnership will enable developers to build safe, scalable, and upgradable dApps on top of the Aptos blockchain. Ankr’s Head of Product Josh Neuroth stated:
“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.”
Once the Aptos mainnet is live, Ankr will add support for it with additional docs, features, and tools to help Web3 developers streamline building. Aptos is the highly anticipated network that will bring new tech and scalability benefits to Web3. Developers building on the Aptos testnet have witnessed over 160,000 transactions per second (TPS), thanks to promising upgrades like their parallel execution engine, Block-STM.
The Ankr Network serves an average of 8 billion blockchain requests per day across more than 50 networks. It delivers time-tested and high-performance RPC node infrastructure to handle any request load, massively expanding Aptos’ public RPC resources.
Ankr’s Aptos Testnet RPC (Remote Procedure Call) connects wallets, command-line interfaces, and dApps with the Aptos blockchain. It acts as a messenger or blockchain router that relays on-chain information between Aptos nodes, dApps, and ultimately end-users so they can execute necessary tasks like transactions, populate wallet balances, fetch ownership information, and more.
To strengthen the global Aptos network, Ankr is providing a geo-distributed and decentralized Aptos RPC composed of many independent blockchain nodes running worldwide for low-latency and reliable connections.
