Ankr Becomes an RPC Provider to the Sui Blockchain
San Francisco, United States, 22nd November, 2022, Chainwire
Ankr, one of the world’s leading Web3 infrastructure providers, has become one of the first RPC (Remote Procedure Call) providers to the Sui blockchain, the permissionless Layer-1 blockchain designed to enable creators and developers to build Web3 experiences for the next billion users.
Developers can now access the Sui Testnet Community and Premium RPCs, make request calls, and receive information returns that mirror the results they would get by running a full node by themselves. The partnership will enable developers to build safe, scalable, and upgradable dApps on top of the Sui blockchain.
Josh Neuroth, Ankr’s Head of Product, said, “Sui’s new technology and Move-based development, paired with Ankr’s easy connection to the blockchain, will create a building environment that is easy and intuitive enough to open the doors to a growing set of new developers and projects. We are very excited to support Sui so Web3 developers can build faster on what is shaping up to be a promising new ecosystem.”
Ankr’s Sui Testnet RPC (Remote Procedure Call) connects wallets, command-line interfaces, and dApps with the Sui blockchain. It acts as a messenger or blockchain router that relays on-chain information between Sui nodes, dApps, and ultimately end-users so they can execute necessary tasks like transactions, populate wallet balances, fetch ownership information, and more.
Sui is a Layer-1 chain that uses the proof-of-stake mechanism and the Move programming language. It’s designed to offer high throughput and low latency, processing over 120,000 transactions per second. Sui has attracted a variety of DEXs, DeFi protocols, launchpads, NFT projects, social platforms, wallets, and much more.
Once the Sui mainnet is live, Ankr will add support for it with additional docs, features, and tools to help Web3 developers streamline building. The Ankr Network delivers time-tested and high-performance RPC node infrastructure to handle any request load, massively expanding Sui’s public RPC resources.
To strengthen the global Sui network, Ankr is providing a geo-distributed and decentralized Sui RPC composed of many independent blockchain nodes running worldwide for low-latency and reliable connections.
Following this partnership, Ankr is now an RPC provider of choice to 39+ blockchains and testnets including Ethereum, BNB Chain, Solana, Polygon, and Avalanche. An RPC enables various applications to interact with the blockchain.
Sui is the first Layer 1 blockchain designed from the ground up to enable creators and developers to build experiences that cater for the next billion users in Web3. Developed by Mysten Labs, Sui is horizontally scalable to support a wide range of dApp development with unrivaled speed at low cost. The first-of-its-kind platform brings users a general-purpose blockchain with high throughput, instant settlement speeds, rich on-chain assets, and user-friendly web3 experiences. Sui is a step-function advancement in blockchain, designed from bottom up to meet the needs of the next billion users in crypto.
