Start building soon on Prom, a versatile zkEVM L2 Solution, Bridging the EVM & non-EVM worlds!

Ankr is excited to announce a new addition coming to our RPC service: Prom, a modular zkEVM Layer 2.

This is great news for developers looking to get the jump on building on top of Prom for scalable and interconnected dApps! Users will be able to access Prom Public and Premium RPCs, make request calls, and receive information returns that are identical to the results they would get by running a full node themselves.

What is Prom?

Prom is a modular zkEVM Layer 2 that enables interoperability across various chains, including both EVM and non-EVM compatible networks. Prom submits its proof of transaction to the additional chains on top of the chosen Settlement chain, building the bridge between ecosystems.

Prom was designed to break single-chain limitations, creating a much more flexible solution to foster adoption. Prom brings an array of features to Web3 that truly adapt to every market narrative and build the groundwork for an inclusive blockchain ecosystem.

What Are Ankr’s New Prom RPC Connections?

  • Ankr’s Prom RPCs (Remote Procedure Calls) connect your wallet, command-line interface, or dApp with the Prom L2. They act as a messenger or blockchain router that relays on-chain information between Prom nodes, dApps, and ultimately end-users so they can execute necessary tasks like transactions, populate wallet balances, fetch ownership information, and much more.

  • Prom RPC endpoints are a gateway for developers to interface directly with Prom — a portal to communicate easily, remotely, and with no need to go through the DevOps of establishing their own Prom nodes.

  • Ankr is providing a geo-distributed Prom RPC comprised of blockchain nodes running worldwide for incredibly low latency and reliable connections.

How Will the Prom RPCs Help Developers?

Building with Prom is an excellent choice for creating scalable and rewarding dApps but requires access to the information on Prom nodes to do so. Therefore, Ankr’s RPC will solve the following developer troubles:

Eliminates complex node ops - Ankr’s Prom RPCs will completely remove the need for many developers to set up their own Prom nodes, removing hours of time spent building, calibrating, and fixing node issues.

Grants access to advanced tools -  Ankr’s Premium RPC Plan will instantly grant access to the best tools to build applications quickly, including:

  • At least 1,500 Prom req/sec
  • Dedicated Prom endpoints
  • Prioritized requests
  • WebSockets (WS) capabilities

Powers apps and open-source software that need access to Prom - Connect with a cluster of high-performance nodes that holds the information you need to build and operate dApps with Prom chain capabilities.

Supports the Prom network - Ankr will strengthen the Prom network globally by offering easier development and a broader, decentralized node infrastructure.

How to Make Your First Call to Prom

You will soon be able to access Prom by heading to Ankr’s RPC Service to make your first call! From there, you will see the Prom endpoint to call the chain using the standard EVM JSON RPC methods.
