We are proud to announce that we have joined the Hyperledger ecosystem as a General Member. As the blockchain space and technology are gaining more and more mainstream awareness, Ankr is excited to become part of the Hyperledger family and contribute to connecting blockchain technology to real-world use-cases.

The Ankr and Hyperledger organizations have extremely similar objectives: to strengthen and broaden the adoption of blockchain technologies in “real world” enterprises.

Ankr is one of very few blockchain startups who have integrated their product proposal outside of the crypto space, and are generating real revenues through the Ankr distributed cloud platform.

We are committed to being central to the continued growth of the enterprise blockchain ecosystem, supported by Hyperledger through open standards and open source-code, as we have already demonstrated earlier this year by joining the Linux Foundation and Cloud Native Computing Foundation.

By joining forces, Ankr and Hyperledger aim to bring substantial benefits to developers and enterprises, and accelerate the adoption of enterprise blockchain technologies.

“At Ankr, we believe blockchain is the driving force for Web 3.0,” said Chandler Song, Founder and CEO, Ankr. “At this important stage for the technology, Hyperledger is bridging the gap between blockchain innovators and existing enterprises. We are excited to work with Hyperledger to bring blockchain to mainstream adoption.”

About Hyperledger

Hyperledger, hosted under the Linux Foundation, is a global, open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. The Hyperledger ecosystem includes leaders in finance, banking, IoT, supply chain, manufacturing and technology.

These collaborations are leveraged to build a new generation of transactional applications that establish trust, accountability and transparency at their core, while streamlining business processes and legal constraints.

About Ankr

Ankr is building a cryptocurrency based global distributed computing network that leverages idle cloud resources in data centers and edge devices. The Ankr platform is connected to top-end specification servers, hosted from data centers owned by some of the largest companies on the planet, to provide the highest quality to the Ankr nodes.

With technologies like Kubernetes, Docker containers, blockchain and trusted hardware, Ankr is making the new cloud cost effective, easy to use, more secure and more eco-friendly.

At the moment, our data providers include Digital Ocean, telecom giant Telefonica, and more which are spread out over 5 continents, and we have many more world-class providers to come.

We are looking forward to a close collaboration with Hyperledger and its impressive list of over 270 members and leaders in fields such as finance, supply chain, government, healthcare, and IoT, who all aim to contribute to the Hyperledger open-source ecosystem for enterprise adoption.
