RPC provider Ankr adds support for Sui blockchain

Rick Steves

Ankr has become one of the first RPC (Remote Procedure Call) providers to the Sui blockchain, thus enabling developers to build safe, scalable, and upgradable dApps on top of the Sui blockchain.

With the addition of Sui, Ankr is now an RPC – enabling various applications to interact with the blockchain – provider of choice to 39+ blockchains and testnets including Ethereum, BNB Chain, Solana, Polygon, and Avalanche.

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.

Sui blockchain offers high throughput and low latency

Sui is a permissionless Layer-1 blockchain designed to enable creators and developers to build Web3 experiences. The blockchain uses the proof-of-stake mechanism and the Move programming language, and is designed to offer high throughput and low latency, processing over 120,000 transactions per second, according to Mysten Labs.

The Sui blockchain was developed by Mysten Labs and has onboarded a variety of DEXs, DeFi protocols, launchpads, NFT projects, social platforms, and wallets.

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.

Ankr’s Sui Testnet RPC connects wallets, interfaces, and dApps

The partnership with Ankr allows developers to 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.

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.

Josh Neuroth, Head of Product at Ankr, 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 plans to add support for the Sui mainnet, once it goes live. Further support will include additional docs, features, and tools to help Web3 developers streamline building.

The network delivers time-tested and high-performance RPC node infrastructure to handle any request load, massively expanding Sui’s public RPC resources. Ankr will also provide a geo-distributed and decentralized Sui RPC composed of many independent blockchain nodes running worldwide for low-latency and reliable connections.

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.
