The Power of Distributed Infrastructure: Promoting Performance for Decentralized Systems
Engineers in various industries are constantly seeking ways to maximize the potential of what they can create, but the success of their endeavors heavily relies on the infrastructure available to them. While the current Internet infrastructure is well-established and dependable, it is centralized, limiting the potential for decentralized applications. In contrast, blockchain technology and web3 enable developers to build decentralized financial products and applications on top of decentralized infrastructure. However, web3 developers face significant scaling of their applications due to the lackluster performance of purely decentralized infrastructure. Therefore, developers need high-quality distributed blockchain infrastructure to create robust and scalable decentralized applications. — Node Distribution: Enhancing Web3 Development - Decentralization is a crucial component of web3’s application layer. However, developers building these applications benefit more from a distributed blockchain infrastructure network with higher-quality node providers than a fully decentralized network with numerous, but only decent-performing, node providers. Such a network ensures reliable and high-performing infrastructure while still promoting decentralization. Emphasizing the distribution of nodes strikes a balance between the benefits of a fully decentralized network and solves its practical limitations. By focusing on distributed q...

What Does Ethereum’s Shanghai Upgrade Mean for Liquid Staking Tokens (LSTs)?
As Ethereum’s Shanghai update looms in April, the crypto community and media have been anticipating a shift toward Liquid Staking Tokens or “LSTs” as opposed to traditional staking on various platforms (however, all staking is expected to grow). This has led to a recent increase in price for tokens associated with liquid staking providers like Ankr Staking (ANKR). Let’s take a deeper look at what’s coming with the next Ethereum update and how it might impact liquid staking. — What Is Coming With the Shanghai Update? - Ethereum’s Shanghai Fork or Upgrade will bring several changes to the network, upgrading its scalability, speed, and models for transactions and gas. This includes several EIPs bundled into one, but the update that is most relevant to liquid staking will be EIP-4895. ETH Unstaking (EIP-4895) One of the most important upgrades coming with the Shanghai upgrade will be the long-awaited ability for all to unstake or withdraw their ETH from the Ethereum staking contracts. This means all who have staked on Ethereum will be able to redeem their staked ETH amounts on a 1:1 basis for ETH. — Why Will the Shanghai Update Likely Bring More Liquid Staking Use? - Shortly after ETH staking was introduced, Ankr pioneered a mechanism that would allow much more flexibility for stakers while still benefiting from staking rewards — liquid staking. Ankr Staking and other liquid staking providers allo...

How Blockchains Increase Trust in Voting & Elections
Web3 technology is the solution to the current inefficiencies in outdated voting systems. Watching the World Series last night, I couldn’t help but notice the number of political advertisements on display. Of course, we expect this as we enter the home stretch of midterm elections in the United States, where Democrats and Republicans flood the airwaves. Both sides feel the need to portray opponents in a negative light to capture the hearts of the American people. During these commercials, I wondered why people often think voting is a chore and, more importantly, why the results inevitably lead to a less-than-ideal outcome for everyone. Many Americans feel a sense of disenfranchisement and jadedness when the election season begins. Elections should empower people to create change that will better serve our country. There are various reasons for these sentiments — one of which is the technology associated with the voting process. While much of the world has become digitalized through technological advancements, the voting system has failed to adapt. The failure to create foundational change in the system can lead to mistrust in the processes and outcomes. For a country to be a democracy, we must be able to trust the democratic process of electing public officials. We must update our democratic process with new technologies focusing on trust and transparency. Problems with the American Voting System I’m a web3 product...

[PRESS RELEASE - Mahe, Seychelles, May 3rd, 2023]
Former executives from Ankr and Blockdaemon have joined their expertise to create Tenet, the first Layer 1 blockchain built to create a hub for Liquid Staking Derivatives (LSDs). Tenet is emerging from stealth mode and unveiling its Testnet today, enabling developers to interact and experiment with the platform.
Tenet is an EVM-compatible L1 protocol, designed to bring additional liquidity and yield opportunities to LSDs by allowing users to re-stake their assets on Tenet's network and participate in Tenet's DeFi ecosystem. Unlike other Cosmos chains that rely on their own native token for Proof of Stake security, Tenet validators can make use of a unique mechanism called Diversified Proof of Stake (DiPoS).
In a nutshell, DiPoS allows validating the Tenet network by re-staking the LSDs from other L1 ecosystems supported by Tenet, such as ETH, BNB, ATOM, SOL and Matic. This ensures the long-term security of the Tenet chain by leveraging the joint security of each L1 ecosystem it services. The lack of shared security has been long-recognized as an adoption roadblock for many chains in the ecosystem.
The LSDs re-staked to the Tenet network will be usable like other LSDs (or, an LLSD) to take advantage of DeFi opportunities on Tenet. In addition to DEXs and lending pools, they will also be able to mint the Universal Stablecoin interest free, allowing them to receive an “advance” on their future LSD yields, which became...

|BNB Chain-Based Defi Protocol Ankr Suffers Major Exploit
Decentralized Web3 infrastructure provider Ankr has become the latest victim of a hacking attack targeting the defi space. The perpetrators who hit the platform were able to mint and steal a massive amount of tokens in a multimillion-dollar exploit.Defi Protocol Ankr Hit by Unlimited Mint Bug Exploit Worth Millions
Ankr, a decentralized finance (defi) protocol based on Binance's BNB Chain, has been exploited by a hacker who apparently used an unlimited minting bug. On-chain analysts broke the news on social media and the attack, which occurred on Dec. 1, was confirmed by Ankr.
On Friday, the Web3 infrastructure provider admitted on Twitter that its aBNB token had been exploited and announced it's working with exchanges to suspend trading. In a follow-up tweet, it also insisted that all underlying assets on Ankr Staking are safe and infrastructure services unaffected.
Our aBNB token has been exploited, and we are currently working with exchanges to immediately halt trading.
- Ankr (@ankr) December 2, 2022
Initial reports by blockchain security company Peckshield revealed the unknown attacker had been able to mint and dispose of approximately 10 trillion aBNB. It also found that some of the stolen funds had been transferred to the Tornado Cash mixer. A portion was bridged through Celer and Debridgegate to ethereum.
On-chain analysis firm Lookonchain said the exploiter minted 20 trillion tokens and dumped them on Pancakeswap, obtaining at least $5 million in the stablecoin USDC...
|Over $5M Stolen From Ankr Protocol, Binance Pauses Withdrawals
Another multi-million dollar hack has hit the decentralized finance space. The latest victim is BNB Chain-based DeFi protocol - Ankr. Initial reports suggest that a vulnerability in its code that enabled unlimited minting of tokens was exploited.
Ankr promptly confirmed the attack and added that it has reached out to other decentralized exchanges urging them to block trading. Tokens will be reissued after it completes assessing the situation.
The attack was first detected by blockchain analysis firm PeckShield in the early hours of December 2nd. It revealed that the exploiter was able to mint 20 trillion Ankr Reward Bearing Staked BNB (aBNBc), a reward-bearing token for BNB staked on the protocol.
The exploiter minted quadrillions of aBNBc tokens, of which 20 trillion was swapped for BNB.
Several services, such as Uniswap, controversial coin mixer Tornado Cash, as well as bridges, were used to obfuscate the trail of ill-gotten funds. The BNB tokens were then swapped for 5 million USDC.
Data from CoinGecko show that aBNBc lost all its value after the token was drained from liquidity pools on PancakeSwap and ApeSwap.
Ankr issued a statement assuring the community that,
'All underlying assets on Ankr Staking are safe at this time, and all infrastructure services are unaffected. We are currently drafting a plan and we are committed to compensating affected users.'
Addressing the hack, Binance CEO Changpeng 'CZ' Zhao said that the crypto exchange has paused withdrawals.

|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.
