Ankr Becomes One of Aptos Blockchain’s First RPC Providers  

Ankr, a provider of Web3 infrastructure, has just announced that it has joined the ranks of Aptos, a secure and scalable Layer-1 blockchain, as a Remote Procedure Call (RPC) provider. An RPC facilitates communication between a blockchain and multiple applications. This collaboration will allow for the creation of dApps on the Aptos blockchain that are secure, scalable, and upgradeable.

Additionally, Aptos Testnet’s Community and Premium RPCs are now available for developers to submit requests to and receive responses from. Furthermore, these returns are identical to what one would make by operating a standalone Aptos full node. With this new relationship, Ankr now provides RPC services to 19 blockchains, including Ethereum, BNB Chain, Solana, Polygon, and Avalanche.

Ankr’s RPC ready for Aptos

Ankr’s geo-distributed and decentralized Aptos RPC helps to fortify the global Aptos network by bringing together many different blockchain nodes located all over the world to provide low latency and stable connections. Developers can now initiate their first call through the Ankr RPC through the usual EVM JSON RPC protocols.

Wallets, CLIs, and dApps can all communicate with the Aptos blockchain through Ankr’s Aptos Testnet RPC. It is a blockchain router or messenger that transmits data on the blockchain between Aptos nodes, dApps, and users. This paves the way for people to carry out key operations. Examples may include making purchases, adding funds to wallets, retrieving relevant ownership data, and more.

Josh Neuroth, Ankr’s Head of Product, said:

“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.” 

Ankr plans to provide support for Aptos once the mainnet is up, providing extra documentation, features, and tools for Web3 developers to facilitate efficient building. Aptos is a much-anticipated network and will likely improve Web3 with cutting-edge technology and scalable architecture. On a daily basis, the Ankr Network processes 8 billion blockchain queries from more than 50 networks.
