Trustless Liquid Staking: Removing Intermediary Risk With SSV Technology
The many components of liquid staking can be a lot to take in if you’re new to DeFi. So a good rule of thumb is; that the more transparency and trustlessness, the better. In light of this, Ankr is teaming up with SSV.network, an Ethereum Foundation project, to implement Distributed Validator Technology into the Ankr Liquid Staking protocol. Throughout this article, we’ll explore what this means for you as an Ankr user, our product roadmap, and the implications of this new technology to the Ethereum ecosystem. This article builds off of our previous post Ankr-SSV Partnership: A Step Closer to Trustless ETH Liquid Staking, which introduces SSV technology, discussing how it works and relates to staking. — What Does Fully Trustless Mean? - Binance wrote in a recent article, “[h]owever, trustless systems have the potential to redefine economic interactions by allowing people to place trust in abstract concepts rather than institutions or other third parties.” Which helps us understand where the trust is placed. At the end of the day, there isn’t a system in existence that is entirely trustless. Trust is always present in one form or another; the question is, where do you put your trust, and how do you measure that trust? If you’re heavily participating in the TradFi processes, you can see that your trust is entirely placed in the hands of the centralized organization/bank. Therefore, if that organization fails,...
Introducing BNB Application Sidechains Relay Hub
A trustless bridge framework for creating interoperable app-specific blockchains on BAS and beyond.. — Application-specific blockchains (app chains) have been the most interesting and promising scaling solution of 2022, with many wondering if they are the final puzzle piece needed to have extremely scalable web3 applications. Currently, app-specific chains are possible to build on ecosystems like: BNB Application Sidechains (BAS), Polygon Supernets, Avalanche Subnets, Ankr is currently helping Web3 projects build app chains on any one of these ecosystems with our end-to-end Ankr App Chains service. But more than that, we are helping blockchains like the BNB Smart Chain, Avalanche, Polygon, and others architect their app chain (sidechain) frameworks for the most high-performance solution for scaling possible. Ankr is uniquely positioned to help build and bring new app chains to market due to our involvement in engineering the framework for them. Earlier this year, Ankr worked closely with the BNB Smart Chain team to release the first BNB Smart Chain Application Sidechain (BAS) testnet that led the way for the mainnet launch, which is bringing several advantages to the ecosystem. — BAS & Other App Chain Ecosystem Advantages - — Super-Scalable - App chains can process more transactions faster and more affordably than congested Layer-1 blockchains as they have dedicated resources serving only one app. On a ...
The Ethereum Merge: Everything You Must Know
For quite some time, the term ‘Merge’ has piqued the interest of many in the crypto community. The Ethereum Merge has been a subject on the lips of important players in the crypto sector, and many have given their thoughts and viewpoints on one of the most significant moves in the short history of blockchain technology. — What Exactly Is The Ethereum Merge? - On September 14, 2022, the Ethereum blockchain will move from proof-of-work (PoW) to proof-of-stake as its consensus method (PoS). Vitalik Buterin, the inventor of Ethereum, pondered this upgrade in public blogs during Ethereum’s ICO in 2014, far before the network’s debut in July 2015. The testnet for the upgrade went live at the beginning of May 2019, and the new 2.0 chain began operating in parallel in December 2020. Since then, frequent delays have dimmed enthusiasm, despite the fact that Ethereum has successfully surmounted more testing obstacles. PoS works when validators “stake” the native cryptocurrency of the blockchain network by depositing it into a private smart contract. Then, random validators are chosen to verify each new block and receive the delegated reward. — From ETH 2.0 → The Merge - The Merge is part of what was formerly known as “ETH 2.0,” a series of improvements that restructure the fundamental aspects of the blockchain. And it’s considered phase two of Ethereum’s multi-part upgrade, to improve scalability, secu...

How is Ankr Preparing for the Ethereum Merge?
Ethereum’s Merge will inevitably alter the dynamics of the blockchain ecosystem. So let’s discuss how we are preparing for the Merge at Ankr. — TL;DR - Ethereum is switching from Proof of Work to Proof of Stake, which will: Decrease energy consumption, Increase overall security & decentralization, This change will open up more use cases for blockchain than just speculative investing, From the user’s point of view, nothing will change from the side of Ankr, On the back end, we’re transitioning our nodes to a new consensus layer, aETHb/c discount will disappear, Ethereum staking rewards will increase., — Implications of the Merge for Blockchain Writ Large - First, I’d like to cover some of the impacts of the Merge on the industry as a whole. We will see many aspects of the DeFi ecosystem change because Ethereum is the most significant player in the entire DeFi ecosystem, with the highest Total Value Locked (TVL) of all blockchain networks. Once the Merge is complete, we will likely see Ethereum coverage in major news outlets that have so far been heavily focused on Bitcoin. Furthermore, Ethereum and Bitcoin have received extensive criticism over their large electricity consumption and environmental impact as a byproduct of Proof of Work(PoW) consensus architecture. The Merge will transition Ethereum to Proof of Stake (PoS), meaning that it’ll become far more energy-efficient, decreasing its total...
Ankr Is Now Securing the Avalanche Bridge
The Avalanche Bridge was created to allow Avalanche to connect with different chains and ecosystems and easily bridge assets to and from the Avalanche network. Now, Ankr has been added as a Bridge Node to safeguard the bridge between Avalanche and Ethereum and many more chains in the future. Bridge Nodes share the responsibility of securing the Avalanche Bridge and ensuring all transactions coming across are valid and shielded from attacks. — About Avalanche Bridge - The Avalanche Bridge brings next-level interoperability advantages to Web3: Fast: Transactions will reach finality extremely fast., Secure: Built with Intel SGX Enclave with advanced security features., Intuitive: Users can transfer assets in an easy, streamlined process., Transparent: Users will know the transfer status at every step., Multi-chain: Will support a growing number of blockchains as a core DeFi hub., Cost-effective: the cost for bridging assets should be as low as possible., Ecosystem-supportive: A portal to many more opportunities & ecosystems., “The Avalanche Bridge is a leap forward in bridging technology, but most importantly, it is a dramatic improvement in experience for users and developers across the Avalanche community.”— Emin Gün Sirer, Founder and CEO of Ava Labs — Who Are Avalanche Bridge Nodes? - Bridge Nodes (formerly known as Wardens) are the trusted partners of Avalanche who act as additional safeguards an...
Ankr-SSV Partnership: A Step Closer to Trustless ETH Liquid Staking
If you’ve liquid-staked Ethereum before, you’ve probably been concerned with the trustworthiness of the delegated nodes at one point. The core barrier to staking without operating a node is how in the world to know which nodes to trust. Learning which node to delegate your assets to is challenging and how to reduce slashing risk is challenging in the current staking landscape. Likewise, if you liquid stake with a protocol like Ankr or Lido, you’re essentially offloading that risk-assessment process to them. By the end of this article, you’ll understand the mechanics of validator node operation, how this relates to the risks of liquid staking, and how SSV technology provides a key innovation in slashing risk and node operation. All in service of equipping you, the investor, to make smarter Ethereum liquid staking investment decisions. — How Risky is Liquid Staking? - On the surface, liquid staking seems just as secure as staking, but it gets a bit more complex when you pull back the curtain. As a result, the first question in our risk analysis of liquid staking is; where exactly are my assets being staked? In other words, which node are my Ethereum tokens delegated to? Since slashing is the most significant risk in staking, it’d be good to have some insight into the node delegation layer of the liquid staking process. Likewise, the biggest obstacle that has stopped me from engaging with liquid staking in the p...
Ankr Is Discontinuing Hosted Eth2 Node Providers
At Ankr, our goal is to continuously add new DeFi earning strategies for our users so they can take full advantage of DeFi composability and access the best combination of rewards. As we keep expanding our staking services and creating more use cases for our native token, we have decided to discontinue the addition of new ETH validator node providers to the platform. This has been a long time coming ahead of The Ethereum Merge that will change the dynamics of liquid staking. To facilitate this transition, we have kept existing ETH2 node providers on board for the past 6 months. We will now be discontinuing ETH2 node providers entirely while ensuring that all providers will receive their earned rewards and their initial deposit. — What Is Changing? - As of September 1st, 2022, we will begin discontinuing the ETH2 node provider service users can run in Ankr Hosting. This move comes at a time when all of the team’s efforts are going towards decreasing Ankr’s dependency on third-party nodes for validating and building a more self-reliant and sustainable environment. — What Will Happen If I Run An ETH2 Validator With Ankr? - The transition will happen in two stages: On September 1st, Ankr will start reducing the number of keys for each node. This will give users time to stop the nodes they are currently running or connect to another validation network., Starting September 6th, all keys will be revoked, at which ...
Why Depositing Liquid Staked Tokens in Liquidity Pools Doesn’t Add Up
The more utilizable capital you receive from an investment, the higher it's capital efficiency. Think of it like this, if you deposit $1,000 in Fortune 500 stock, that money is capital inefficient because it’s locked up in the stock, and you can only utilize it in one way: selling it. Likewise, when you stake your assets on a PoS blockchain, those assets become locked up and capital inefficient in quite the same way. Moreover, staking Ethereum, in particular, is wildly capital inefficient because not only are your assets locked, they’re locked for an indefinite amount of time until the full proof of stake merge happens. Liquid staking came along as a solution to this with the primary value proposition of enabling capital efficiency on staked assets. What this means is that you can stake a token like BNB, and receive a liquid staked token through protocols like Ankr Staking that equal the value of your original staked assets. So now you can utilize those staked assets in other DeFi strategies, making it capital efficient again. Then when you want to cash out, you initiate the unbonding period on Ankr Staking and wait to receive your original assets + staking rewards. — Why is Capital Efficiency Important?. — The fact that you can have access to capital that was once locked creates new opportunities to deploy capital and boost yield. Not only this, but now you can stake your assets without the hassle of co...

|ANKR Gained 12% In The Last 24 Hours. What's Pushing It?
Although it hasn't been easy, the crypto market has been on its recovery journey since mid-July. There have been some rallies that didn't last long, followed by extended periods of pullbacks that caused more panic. So, no one can say what direction to expect in the short term.
But while some tokens struggle to remain afloat, others seem to be making positive leaps. At the time of writing, the ANKR has grown to 19.89%, making it to be the best performing crypto among the top 100s by market cap.
ANKR/USD 4-Hour Chart Trend
This price chart shows the bullish trend for ANKR from August 24 to 25. The MACD line is pushing to cross above the signal line, indicating a bullish trend. Also, ANKR's 14-day RSI is at 61, meaning an imminent move to the overbought region. If the token price climbs from the lower left to the upper right of the chart, it has entered the territory.
Once ANKR enters the overbought region, it has sustained its upward price movement for a more extended period with lesser pullbacks. This could happen if the ongoing momentum continues.
Currently, the ANKR price stands at $0.04211, a gradual climb from $0.0409 earlier today. If it continues to rally as it is now, the coin price might rise beyond $0.050809, its first significant resistance level before August 25.
But if the bullish momentum doesn't last long, ANKR might not recover its August highs of $0.059 soon.
