Ankr and Horizen Join Forces to Revolutionize EON Smart Contract Platform
Ankr, a renowned Web3 infrastructure provider, has announced its collaboration with Horizen, a leading layer 0 public blockchain. This strategic partnership aims to establish Ankr as one of the pioneering Remote Procedure Call (RPC) providers for EON, Horizen’s EVM-compatible smart contracting platform. By leveraging Ankr’s state-of-the-art Web3 infrastructure and services, this collaboration promises to enhance the accessibility, scalability, and reliability of the rapidly growing EON ecosystem.
Horizen’s EON platform represents a major milestone in smart contract technology. As the first of many smart contract sidechains in the Horizen ecosystem, EON offers full compatibility with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). By teaming up with Ankr, Horizen will optimize the performance and accessibility of EON for both developers and end-users. Ankr’s high-performance RPC node infrastructure will ensure that EON can handle any request load, resulting in a more scalable and efficient platform.
Ankr’s EON RPC connections serve as the critical link between wallets, command-line interfaces, or decentralized applications (dApps) and the EON sidechain. Acting as messengers or blockchain routers, these RPCs relay on-chain information between EON nodes, dApps, and end-users. This seamless communication allows users to execute transactions, retrieve wallet balances, fetch ownership information, and perform other necessary tasks. Ankr’s geo-distributed EON RPC infrastructure, consisting of blockchain nodes deployed worldwide, ensures low-latency and reliable connections.
The partnership between Horizen and Ankr has garnered praise from industry experts. Rob Viglione, Co-founder of Horizen, expressed his enthusiasm, stating that the collaboration would greatly enhance the capabilities of the EON ecosystem. He emphasized the value that Ankr’s cutting-edge technology and developer tools would bring to EON’s scalability and accessibility, enabling developers to create secure and efficient dApps across various use cases.
Josh Neuroth, Head of Product at Ankr, highlighted the company’s commitment to empowering developers in the zero-knowledge movement. Neuroth stressed that Ankr’s readily accessible connections to EON would facilitate the advancement of smart contract technology and the scaling of Web3 to reach the next billion users.
In addition to RPC services, Ankr will provide a suite of developer tools to facilitate the creation and deployment of smart contract applications on EON. These tools, including the Liquid Staking SDK, Web3 Gaming SDK, and Ankr AppChains As a Service, will empower developers to build innovative and scalable Web3 applications on the EON platform.
Currently live on its permanent public testnet, Gobi, Horizen’s EON ecosystem is now bolstered by Ankr’s contributions. With the combined strengths of EON’s EVM compatibility, Horizen’s zero-knowledge-enabled cross-chain protocol (Zendoo), and Ankr’s cutting-edge Web3 infrastructure, the EON platform is set to attract a multitude of dApps and services in the coming months. This collaboration will foster a permissionless, interoperable, and customizable blockchain ecosystem, benefiting developers and users alike.
Horizen, as a layer 0 public blockchain, offers a unique value proposition. The platform enables a zero-knowledge network of blockchains through its extensive node system and the highly scalable cross-chain protocol, Zendoo. Horizen provides developers with tools to build private or public blockchains and dApps with unparalleled flexibility. Its EVM compatibility, achieved through the EON sidechain, empowers developers to fully customize their blockchains, including consensus, speed, privacy, and crypto-economies. By harnessing Horizen’s technology, blockchains built on the platform can achieve massive throughput without compromising decentralization.
With the Ankr-Horizen collaboration, the blockchain industry witnesses another significant step toward a more accessible and scalable Web3 ecosystem. The partnership not only showcases the potential of advanced infrastructure providers but also paves the way for innovative solutions across various sectors, including DeFi, gaming, and NFTs. As the EON ecosystem continues to evolve, developers and users can anticipate groundbreaking advancements and a more inclusive blockchain landscape.
