Ethereum L2 Scaling Solution Optimism Announces Addition of Ankr as an RPC Provider

Ethereum Network Successfully Completes Gray Glacier Hard Fork Update

For Ethereum blockchain users, Ankr, a rapidly expanding supplier of Web3 infrastructure, is proud to announce that it is now an RPC (Remote Procedure Call) provider for Optimism, a lightning-fast, and inexpensive Layer-2 scaling solution. Ankr is now an RPC provider for 17 blockchains, including Ethereum, BNB Chain, Solana, and Avalanche, as a result of this agreement. Using RPCs, many apps may communicate with the blockchain at the same time.

More than 50 blockchains are served by the Ankr Protocol on an average of six billion blockchain queries daily. Optimism’s public RPC resources have been greatly expanded thanks to Ankr’s high-performance RPC node technology.

According to Matthew Slipper, OP Labs’ Head of Engineering:

“Apps and integrations choose to build in the Optimism ecosystem because they feel aligned with our values and culture and appreciate the tooling and technical options available to them. In response to requests from our community, we’re excited to offer Ankr as an additional Optimism RPC provider.”

Scalability is brought to Ethereum by using optimistic rollups. In order to cut transaction costs and improve throughput, Optimism submits the transaction data to Ethereum while processing transactions off-chain. Since its start, Optimism has saved its consumers over a billion dollars in gas costs.

Greg Gopman, the Chief Marketing Officer at Ankr, said:

“We love what Optimism is building for the future of Ethereum. Ankr is happy to do our part to provide a fast and reliable RPC service for their users.”

Dapp developers searching for more Optimism RPC endpoints would also benefit significantly from this alliance. With the public and premium RPCs in place, developers may perform requests and look up on-chain data in the same way they would be able to do with a self-hosted complete node of Optimism.

Ankr provides a geo-distributed and decentralized Optimism RPC consisting of several independent blockchain nodes operating globally for low latency and dependable connections to build the global Optimism network. ANKR tokens will be offered to Optimism node operators in exchange for adding their nodes to the load balancer.
