Ano ang Ankr? (ANKR)
Ipinaliwanag ang ANKR Coin
Ankr aims to make the adoption of Web3 easier by offering a platform where users can deploy nodes on Proof of Stake (PoS) blockchains, stake their PoS tokens and access decentralized finance (DeFi) applications.
Running a node for a PoS blockchain is often perceived to be an attractive way to earn income. However, significant hardware investments and technical proficiency are often seen as barriers to getting started.
Ankr seeks to address these challenges by simplifying the node creation process to just a few clicks for dozens of blockchains. Node operators only have to pay a monthly fee to Ankr in return for the various services the platform provides.
Ankr first launched as a Distributed Cloud Computing Network. Its goal was to utilize excess capacity for cloud computing from a network of idle machines rather than needing to rely on a single cloud computing provider. Since then, the team has expanded its efforts to make participating in, building on and using blockchains easier for all.
Ankr’s native cryptocurrency, ANKR coin, serves as a payment method across the Ankr platform.
Sino ang Lumikha ng Ankr?
Ang Ankr ay itinatag noong 2017 ng dalawang dating kasama sa silid sa kolehiyo mula sa UC Berkeley — Chandler Song at Ryan Fang — kasama si Stanley Wu, isang dating Amazon computer engineer.
Nag-intern si Song sa Amazon Web Services, kung saan si Wu ang kanyang manager. Isang gabi pagkatapos ng trabaho, tinalakay nina Song, Fang at Wu ang isang papel sa Proof of Useful Work. Ang talakayang iyon sa huli ay humantong sa paglikha ng Ankr, kung saan naging CEO si Song, naging COO si Fang, at naging CTO si Wu.
Ang pangkat ng Ankr ay nakalikom ng $18.7 milyon sa loob ng anim na araw mula sa kanilang unang token sale. Ang koponan ay nagsagawa ng isang presale na nakalikom ng $15.9 milyon, at may nakabukas na pagbebenta sa pangkalahatang publiko ng $2.75 milyon. Sa kabuuan, 3.5 bilyon sa 10 bilyong kabuuang token na inaalok ang naipamahagi.
Ang Ankr ay nakalikom din ng sampu-sampung milyong dolyar mula sa mga nangungunang pangalan sa blockchain investing space, kabilang ang Pantera Capital at NEO Global Capital (NGC).
Paano Gumagana Ang Ankr?
Ankr’s product offerings can broadly be categorized into two main functions:
Ankr recognizes that not every user has the resources or technical capacity to launch a node from scratch or participate in the validation process on a Proof of Stake blockchain. Whether they are looking to launch a full node storing the chain’s complete information or a validator node storing only the current state of the chain, Ankr simplifies the process for individuals or developers across dozens of blockchains including Bifrost, Tron and Kusama.
Beyond avoiding the complexity of setting up a node, Ankr oversees the performance of the node to make sure users’ staked funds are not penalized for dishonesty or downtime.
Ankr has also sought to advance the adoption of Web3 by simplifying the deployment of decentralized applications (dApps) using its application programming interface (API). Ankr’s infrastructure allows developers to gain access to dozens of leading blockchain platforms, including Ethereum, Polygon and Polkadot, without the need to study complex documentation. Ankr’s API solutions should accelerate implementation timelines while also providing dApps with more timely and accurate data.
Ankr also simplifies the onboarding process for individuals looking to stake tokens on various blockchains and help validate transactions. For example, staking 32 ETH is required to become a validator for the Ethereum 2.0 blockchain on top of needing the technical proficiency to set up and maintain a node.
Using Ankr’s StakeFi, individuals can stake as little as 0.5 ETH, which is automatically routed to the pools with the highest yield. The platform is non-custodial, meaning users can keep their assets in their wallet, without having to lock up their funds in a different platform. In return, users receive aETH (a synthetic token on the Ankr platform which reflects the value of ETH) and additional rewards, which can be used to access decentralized finance applications and protocols.
Bakit May Halaga Ang ANKR?
Ang cryptocurrency ng Ankr, ANKR, ay nagsisilbing medium of exchange sa Ankr network at maaaring magbayad ang mga user para sa mga serbisyo gaya ng buwanang bayad para magpatakbo ng node o para ma-access ang serbisyo ng API ng Ankr.
Ang ANKR ay nagbibigay din ng insentibo sa mga kalahok sa network at gumaganap ng isang papel sa proseso ng pamamahala ng network. Sa pamamagitan ng pagmamay-ari at pag-staking ng mga ANKR na barya, nagkakaroon ang mga user ng kakayahang bumoto sa mga pag-upgrade sa network, na ang bawat boto ay proporsyonal sa halaga ng ANKR cryptocurrency na kanilang itinaya.
Tulad ng maraming iba pang mga cryptocurrency, limitado ang supply ng ANKR sa maximum na supply na 10 bilyong ANKR coin.

Bakit Kailangan Gamitin ang Ankr?
Ang mga nakakakita sa Ankr bilang kagalang-galang na provider ng critical Web3 na imprastraktura ay maaaring matagpuan ang halaga sa Ankr platform at ANKR token nito.
Ang ANKR marahil ay isang kapaki-pakinabang na pamumuhunan para sa mga nakakakita ng halaga sa kakayahang mag-set up nang mas mahusay na mga node sa Proof of Stake blockchain.
Sa mga naghahanap nang mas mabilis na bumuo ng mga aplikasyon na gumagamit ng maramihang Proof of Stake blockchain ay maaari ring matagpuan sa Ankr at ang ANKR token na sumusuporta sa netwrok.
