Ankr focusing on expanding its services to new users
Lately, Ankr has focused on extending its services to new users. Part of this pursuit birthed its partnership with Filecoin, making it one of its RPC partners. According to a Binbits report, the collaboration equipped Ankr to provide Filecoin-hosted nodes services. Consequently, offering a pathway for developers and Web3 solutions to communicate with the Filecoin storage system. Likewise, the collaboration added more computing support for Ankr assisting it to process numerous requests simultaneously.
Worth mentioning that Tron is also an RPC partner of the Ankr protocol. As an RPC partner, the collaboration between TRON and Ankr Protocol aided TRONdApp developers to integrate tools that will ensure high throughput and scalability for their solution. It also provided them with technical assistance that’ll facilitate swift deployment of the solution.
Then, the collaboration with Filecoin surfaced as part of Ankr’s effort to forge ahead after suffering an exploitation in late 2022. As reported, the protocol lost $5 million worth of BNB tokens to hackers on December 2, 2022. Reports indicated that the hackers carried out the attack as a result of a vulnerability in the smart contract code of the project. Shortly after the attack, Ankr implemented an upgrade to correct the deficiency.
