Ankr has launched a suite of plug-and-play tools that enable dApp developers to build custom blockchains uniquely suited to their application.

With the App Chains-as-a-Service, Ankr aims to make extremely scalable blockchains for enterprise-level throughput to facilitate the continued development and success of Web3 dApps.

The App Chains provides Web3 startups, existing Web3 dApps, and Web2 projects coming to Web3 all the tools they need to build a custom blockchain for their dApp.

Helping developers to build on Polygon, Avalanche, BNB

Greg Gopman, the Chief Marketing Officer at Ankr, said: “It’s clear to us that App Chains is going to be one of the dominant industry solutions to scalability. So we packaged all of Ankr’s best products together to help companies make them, fast, simple, and secured by Ankr’s industry leading technology.”

Ankr’s solution helps developers to build their own blockchains on Sidechain frameworks like Polygon Edge, Avalanche Subnets, and the BNB Chain’s BAS. Developers can choose the programming languages, consensus mechanisms, and development frameworks.

The firm states that, with a custom blockchain for each dApp, there is no competition for storage or computation, and scalability is allowed to thrive.

Ankr’s solution supports the following App Chain building blocks:

  • Validator binary + config file (.toml): Get custom validator networks up and running for your App Chain
  • Load-balanced RPC endpoint: Run globally decentralized and distributed node networks for best in class speed and reliability
  • White-labeled block explorer: Integrate your App Chain with Ankr’s block explorer to transparently display data for your blockchain to users
  • Faucet for testnet tokens: Create customizable testnet faucet solutions to give your dApp the resources needed for testing before going live on the mainnet
  • Direct staking support through a UI: With access to Ankr Staking, your token holders can easily stake to validators through a customizable staking and liquid staking dashboards
  • Ankr’s “Exchange Readiness” program: Get your token ready for listing on major exchanges with Ankr as your guide through the technical due diligence process and infrastructure requirements needed to be considered by major players

App Chains better than building on top of existing blockchains

Ankr claims its App Chains give developers more flexibility than building dApps on top of existing blockchains using smart contracts. The solution is said to be capable of processing more transactions at a lower cost than doing so with smart contracts on a Layer-1 blockchain that compete for limited resources.

Ankr services over 50 proof-of-stake chains with an industry-leading global node delivery system and developer toolkit. Two trillion transactions a year are served by Ankr.

The Game of Chess Continues – OPEC, China and the Oil Market

Over the past decade, the US has been complaining about the amount of power which the BRIC group, and specifically China, has on the global economy. BRIC stands for Brazil, Russia, India and China; these were the world’s fastest growing economies. Only in the past 10 months, the US has turned their attention toward OPEC due to the prices of fuel. Nevertheless, China seems to have a strong influence even over the price of crude oil.
