We are pleased to announce that Ankr has integrated with Moonbeam — an Ethereum-compatible smart contract parachain on Polkadot that makes it easy to build natively interoperable applications. As of now, developers building on Moonbeam will be able to spin up a Moonbeam node in just a few clicks, as well as access WS and HTTPS RPC endpoints in a user-friendly and reliable manner.
This integration opens the doors to the fast-paced Moonbeam and Polkadot ecosystems for Ankr, which has been working towards expanding its infrastructure services to prominent parachains on Polkadot. Moonbeam’s powerful Ethereum compatibility enables Ankr to port its Ethereum-based code to Polkadot with minimal to no changes required.
The integration is currently at a stage of initial deployment. So far, Ankr supports Moonbase Alpha, and we will support Moonriver and Moonbeam upon the launch of each network.
“Our goal is to provide the best-in-class developer experience. One way of doing this is by providing the best portfolio of tools and integrations,” said Francisco Agosti, Director of Markets and Partnerships at Moonbeam. “We are delighted to welcome the Ankr team to the Moonbeam ecosystem and continue with our mission, which is to create the most developer-focused platform possible.”
As a part of the partnership, the Ankr team has also been awarded a grant by the Moonbeam Foundation (you can find out more about the grant program and how to apply on the Moonbeam Foundation website).
Moonbeam is an Ethereum-compatible smart contract platform on the Polkadot network that makes it easy to build natively interoperable applications. This Ethereum compatibility allows developers to deploy existing Solidity smart contracts and DApp frontends to Moonbeam with minimal changes. As a parachain on the Polkadot network, Moonbeam will benefit from the shared security of the Polkadot relay chain and integrations with other chains that are connected to Polkadot. Currently, in active development by PureStake, Moonbeam is expected to reach MainNet by Q4–2021. Learn more: https://moonbeam.network/.
