This strategic partnership brings enhanced accessibility, scalability, and reliability to the rapidly growing EON ecosystem.
We are excited to announce a strategic partnership with Ankr, a leading Web3 infrastructure provider. This collaboration will make Ankr one of the first Remote Procedure Call (RPC) providers for EON, Horizen’s new EVM-compatible smart contracting platform. The partnership will bring additional accessibility, scalability, and reliability to the burgeoning EON ecosystem by supporting a wide range of use cases, including DeFi, gaming, and NFTs.
Horizen’s EON is a fully EVM-compatible smart contracting platform and the first of many smart contract sidechains on the Horizen ecosystem. Ankr’s state-of-the-art Web3 infrastructure and services will enable Horizen EON to further optimize its performance and accessibility for developers and end-users alike. With Ankr’s high-performance RPC node infrastructure, EON will be able to handle any request load, making it more scalable and efficient.
“The collaboration between Horizen and Ankr will significantly enhance the EON ecosystem’s capabilities, delivering unmatched value to developers and users alike. Ankr’s cutting-edge technology and suite of developer tools will not only bolster EON’s scalability and accessibility but also empower our developers to create innovative, secure, and efficient dApps across various use cases.“– Rob Viglione, Co-founder, Horizen, Co-founder and CEO of Horizen Labs
Through this collaboration, Ankr will also provide a suite of developer tools to help create and deploy smart contract applications on EON quickly and easily. These tools include the Liquid Staking SDK, Web3 Gaming SDK, and AppChains As a Service, empowering dApp developers to build innovative and scalable Web3 applications on EON.
“Our collaboration with Horizen is a testament to Ankr’s dedication to developers looking to build innovative solutions upgraded by the zero-knowledge movement. By providing readily accessible connections to EON, Ankr can assist in powering the leading edge of smart contract technology as it plays a vital part in scaling Web3 to the next billion users.“– Josh Neuroth, Head of Product, Ankr.

The combination of EON’s EVM compatibility, Horizen’s zero-knowledge enabled cross-chain protocol, and Ankr’s cutting-edge Web3 infrastructure will create a permissionless, interoperable, and customizable blockchain ecosystem for developers and users alike.
