Prefab DeFi! Ankr’s New Tool Kits Allow Projects to Easily Integrate Staking Infrastructure

It seems like every week Ankr is releasing some tantalizing new kit to make blockchain development more streamlined and accessible for builders.

Pulse of the Network – Understanding How ANKR Tokens Are Utilized

Whenever the subject of token utility arises, it often feels as though many have this unshakeable image in their heads of a person strolling into 7-Eleven, handing their trusty cryptocurrency card to the cashier and walking out with a savory box of Milk Duds. Their underlying assumption about crypto is that it should function more …

The Switzerland of Web3 – Ankr ‘s “Chain Neutral” Approach Lights a Path Toward Multi-Chain Future

Anyone who has spent a significant amount of time in crypto knows that there are a number of persistent rivalries between different blockchains. Taking on a factional form, these rivalries often exist both at the project/developer level and within the wider communities themselves. Much of this can be chalked up to friendly competition, genuine technical …

Proton Powers Up With Top-Tier Domain and New Whitepaper

Proton (XPR) has officially outgrown the ProtonChain.com domain name and has upgraded to Proton.org. For those of us who are veterans of the domain industry, this is fantastic news and an obvious indication of good things to come.

With the exponential proliferation of rug pulls, overhyped garbage projects and slimy developers in crypto the last couple of years, I’ve often wondered whether there would be renewed interest in so-called “boring” legacy coins like Digibyte, Litecoin, and Reddcoin. After getting bamboozled enough times, some people might wish to gravitate back toward projects which have—at …

Blockchain-Powered E-Commerce Platform “Storex” Poised to Launch on Proton

Try saying that five times fast! I confess I hadn’t heard of Storex until they recently conducted an airdrop of their token (STRX) to Proton holders. At the time, it was only tradeable on an exchange called Alcor (no relation to the cryonics facility that freezes human corpses). Then just yesterday Storex scored its highly …

Snipcoins – A Snappy New Social Platform For All Things Crypto

Continuing on my unprompted, unlikely odyssey into Proton’s budding young ecosystem, I stumbled onto a nifty social media platform called Snipcoins ($SNIPS). Founded by Jervis Dent, an experienced web developer from Orlando, FL, Snipcoins describes itself as “a place where NFT and crypto enthusiasts can connect, share, engage, trade and learn from each other.” More …

Freshening Up the NFT Space With Proton Mint

One of the more promising layer 1 blockchains to rapidly emerge from obscurity has been Proton (XPR). Describing itself as “the payment blockchain,” Proton seems to place a heavy emphasis on speed, efficiency, and the ability to support high transaction volumes. Unlike with many other projects, Proton’s actual products are consistent with their branding and …
