What is Ankr?
Ankr is a project that aims to make blockchain nodes more efficient and accessible. It’s cryptocurrency enables a sharing economy model in which businesses and consumers can monetize their extra computing power from their devices, local servers, the private cloud and even the public cloud. This allows the ANKR network to provide computing power much closer to users at a much lower cost. The Ankr crypto platform aims to remove barriers to node deployment by making it easier for individuals to participate in the blockchain node network and potentially receive the rewards often associated with participation. Ankr's node deployment services are also useful for Web3 organizations seeking to build a platform or product that can run on a specific blockchain, or to develop programs that require simultaneous access to multiple blockchain networks.
Ankr's distributed computing platform runs on its own ANKR token, which is used to pay for services and create its own Ankr node network.
