Token Description & Project Background

The Ankr Network serves as a multi-chain management platform for cloud computing resourcing, building an ecosystem of resource demanders, providers, developers and consumers. Ankr seeks to provide affordable, and decentralized cloud computing services. 

Developers can leverage Ankr’s custom application programming interfaces (APIs) and remote program calls (RPCs) to provide a simplified means of deploying applications to various independent blockchain networks including Ethereum, Polygon and Polkadot. Likewise, the protocol offers an SDK toolkit, which supposedly facilitates the creation of multi-chain-run GameFi titles.

ANKR is the network's native utility token. It is primarily used as a payment solution within the network.

The token launched May 2018 through private sale and an ICO September 2018 which excluded US citizens. 

The project was co-founded by Chandler Song (CEO),  Stanley Wu (CTO) and Ryan Fang (COO). Song studied at UC Berkeley,  and worked as an engineer for Amazon Web Services. Prior to joining Ankr Network, Fang was an investment banking analyst at Morgan Stanley.
