Ankr Network, a distributed computing platform, announced on Twitter that they have completed a partnership with Marlin Protocol.
We are excited to collaborate with @MarlinProtocol to make low-latency #DeFi trading more accessible. Together we will make @MarlinProtocol ‘s node development process cheaper & more affordable.
Both Ankr and Marlin share a common vision of decentralized networks that are not limited to a handful of staking companies, mining pools, or API providers.
What Does The Partnership Look Like?
Marlin addresses issues such as scalability vs decentralization tradeoffs at the network layer by optimization communication in peer-to-peer platforms. Ankr helps users run Marlin nodes and gateways with its 1-click deployment solutions, making the whole process a lot more affordable. Here are some key features to keep in mind:
- Users can deploy their blockchain nodes in minutes.
- Nodes can be easily deployed across geographies.
- Marlin gateways open up interoperability opportunities with Ethereum, Cosmos, Tezos, and Polkadot.
As Ankr puts it:
Eventually, more block producers will start sending and receiving blocks from Marlin while full nodes operating on Ankr infrastructure will gain access to a low-latency transaction relay benefiting DeFi traders and arb bots alike. This integration helps us move one step closer to our vision of a decentralized web where applications secured via blockchain are indistinguishable in terms of performance to Web 2.0.
What Is Marlin Protocol?
Blacked by Electric Capital, Michael Arrington, DHVC, Fenbushi, and Binance – Marlin is an open protocol that provides high-performance programmable network infrastructure for DeFi Web 3.0. It’s primary goal is to create a decentralized internet where the decentralized apps are abstracted to the same level as Web 2.0 apps.
What is Ankr Network?
Founded in 2017 by Chandler Song and Ryan Fang, Ankr positions itself as a distributed computing platform by collating idle computing energy from its nodes. It gives developers and enterprise clients an ideal platform to quickly deploy blockchain nodes at a lower price than public cloud providers. By using their solutions, public blockchains can engage their communities and rapidly secure and decentralize their networks.
