Ankr (ANKR/USD), a leading crypto infrastructure platform seeking to drive future growth in the Web3 ecosystem, has partnered Polygon (MATIC) to advance the development of the Supernets on the Ethereum scaling protocol.
As announced on Monday, this major crypto news means Ankr will help bring the best of Web3 developer tools for builders on Polygon – enhancing growth of the whole ecosystem via streamlined user experiences built to better those in Web2.
In a comment on the partnership and what it means for the Web3 industry, Ankr App Chain Manager Kev Silk said:
“To drive Web3 mass adoption, we must provide consumers with a better UX than Web2. Enhancing the UX is possible only by streamlining Web3 development, which is why we’re thrilled to partner with Polygon Supernets and provide developers with the necessary infrastructure to build efficiently. Together, Ankr App chain Infra and Polygon Supernets can supercharge high-quality Web3 games, financial products, and other decentralized applications.”
Polygon Supernets are dedicated networks that can be secured by the native MATIC token and which offer users an EVM-compatible and customisable interoperable blockchain platform to quickly bootstrap validator sets.
Each Supernet allows for a specific application or use case, with its dedicated Web3 hosting capabilities key to project adoption in the growing crypto space. Developers can enhance this via the Ankr App Chains, which provides for an approved infrastructure vendor whose end-to-end engineering capabilities ensures greater security, throughput, and customizability.
App-specific customization and access to a high performance blockchain network will be key to Web3 growth, according to General Manager of Polygon Supernets Parth Pathak. He explained in statement shared via the press release:
“Polygon couldn’t be more excited to partner with ANKR for providing world-class tooling for building dedicated blockchains. With Polygon Supernets, enterprises, gaming and entertainment projects can rapidly power up their dedicated app-specific chains that are fine tuned for best-in-class EVM performance. Polygon is bringing together the world’s leading Web3 providers (like ANKR) into a comprehensive ecosystem that will empower any team to build their own blockchain. Supernets will help bring the next billion users to Web3.”
The Supernets are powered by Polygon Edge architecture, a customisable blockchain stack Polygon introduced in May 2021.
