Ankr is a Web3 infrastructure platform designed to lower the barriers for individuals, enterprises, and developers to participate in the blockchain ecosystem. With the launch of Ethereum 2.0, Ankr has added a decentralized stake/stable income protocol StakeFi (formerly known as Stkr), allowing ordinary investors to start staking with a small amount of ETH, and provide it through a synthetic asset aETH instead of the pledged ETH With instant liquidity, investors can also use the synthetic asset aETH to trade or participate in DeFi.
In the future, as StakeFi further increases its support for public chains such as BSC, Avalanche, Polkadot, etc., holders of various public chains can also use StakeFi, a decentralized cross-chain staking protocol, to complete the intercommunication from the bottom node pledge to the upper DeFi.
The ANKR token is the native utility and governance token for the ANKR network.
ANKR tokens are used to pay for services within the Ankr ecosystem. Ankr is uniquely positioned as a node infrastructure and decentralized web services provider that allows DApps and blockchains to run and communicate with each other seamlessly while allowing users to earn more with their assets by delegating them easily to validator nodes. This is in contrast to centralized solutions like AWS Blockchain and many others.
