How it works
Developers & dApps make RPC requests
Developers and projects pay to access the data on Ankr Network nodes via remote procedure calls.
Requests are routed through the RPC aggregator
Blockchain request traffic is aggregated and distributed to the best-suited nodes to serve it using an intelligent load balancer.
Node Providers serve requests & earn ANKR
Node providers operate nodes, serve traffic from the aggregator, earn ANKR token rewards, and contribute to Ankr DAO.
Serve Traffic, Earn ANKR
Use your nodes to serve requests from Ankr Network and earn ANKR tokens. Our native utility and governance token, ANKR, can also be staked to maximize your earnings.
Provide Resources FlexiblyDeploy nodes to Ankr Network flexibly and opt in or out of serving traffic at any time to fit your needs. No contracts or one-size-fits-all service plans.
Control Your InfrastructureNode providers are the true owners and operators of Ankr Network via Ankr DAO governance. Vote with your earned ANKR to make the network better serve your needs.
Save Time and MoneyGet quick, easy, affordable access to node infrastructure on multiple blockchains from one convenient source — all while avoiding centralized providers and rigid service plans.
Maximize Security and UptimeEnjoy the built-in security and redundancy of Ankr Network. If your nodes experience an outage, our intelligent load-balancer will redirect your traffic and ensure you stay connected.
Decentralize and Scale
Ankr Network is the world’s fastest-growing decentralized infrastructure provider for Web3. Your nodes help make it possible to build the future of Web3 in a more decentralized way.
Choose How You Provide
Start Serving Traffic and Earning Rewards
Projects that pass KYC and meet the designated hardware and ANKR token collateral requirements can become a node provider on Ankr Network.
Use Ankr Servers
To promote decentralization, Ankr is installing world-class, bare metal servers around the world, and turning the nodes over to the community to run and operate independently.

If using your own hardware, you will need to meet benchmarking and performance requirements; you will be notified of eligibility within two (2) business days. Those using Ankr servers automatically satisfy benchmark requirements.
After approval, meet the collateral requirements by depositing 100,000 ANKR to your Web3 wallet. This is an insurance policy to encourage high performance and ethical behavior.
Independently deploy full nodes or archive nodes with Ankr Network.
Privately manage nodes or opt-in to receive traffic from Ankr's RPC load balancer to earn token rewards.
Already have your own nodes and want to benefit from the security, resiliency, and redundancy of Ankr Network without accepting other network traffic? Hybrid deployment gives you all the benefits of Ankr Network but keeps your node exclusive to you and your premium RPC.
