Moonbeam announced last Wednesday, May 19, through its Twitter account, its integration with Ankr, which, in its opinion, will allow Moonbeam #devs to quickly rotate a node with just a few clicks and access the endpoints WS and HTTPS RPC in a reliable and easy-to-use way.
“We are pleased to announce that Ankr has integrated with Moonbeam, an Ethereum compatible smart contract parachain in Polkadot that makes it easy to create interoperable applications natively. From now on, developers based on Moonbeam will be able to activate a Moonbeam node with just a few clicks, as well as access WS and HTTPS RPC endpoints in a user-friendly and reliable way”, he said through an article. published on the Medium platform.
According to the company, this integration opens the doors to the fast-paced Moonbeam and Polkadot ecosystems for Ankr, which has been working to expand its infrastructure services to prominent parachutes in Polkadot. “Moonbeam’s powerful Ethereum support enables Ankr to port its Ethereum-based code to Polkadot with little or no change required”, he added.
Ankr commented that the integration is currently in an early implementation stage. So, until now, Ankr is compatible with Moonbase Alpha, and they will support Moonriver and Moonbeam in launching each network.
“Our goal is to provide the best developer experience in its class. One way to do 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 our mission, which is to create the most developer-centric platform possible”.
