Ankr is very excited to announce the second project we have helped launch on BNB Application Sidechains — Project Galaxy! Ankr’s unique experience in creating the framework for the BAS testnet was instrumental in helping them migrate their operations to a dedicated sidechain. This partnership comes just weeks after we enabled Meta Apes to launch on BAS, the first blockchain game to launch on the new ecosystem.
Ankr helped Project Galaxy create its dedicated “GAL Chain” that will bring an even better experience to everyone using the project to showcase their Web3 credentials. Ankr provided the critical node infrastructure and app chain building tools to get them up and running on BAS in record time.
New Scalability & Utility for Project Galaxy In Cosmic Proportions
BNB Application Sidechains are changing the game when it comes to scalability for decentralized applications. The GAL Chain provided the Project Galaxy development team with enhanced scalability, customization, and control benefits of having their own dedicated blockchain.
The new GAL Chain also creates even more use cases for Project Galaxy’s Web3 credentialing system as projects and users will be able to curate, disseminate, and authenticate credentials through their application modules, NFT minting, oracle credentials, and API credential.
The GAL Chain is still on the BAS testnet but will be live soon on the new BAS mainnet!
Ankr Provided Galactic-Grade Infrastructure & Building Tools
Ankr’s new App Chain solutions gave Project Galaxy everything they needed to get the GAL Chain up and running on BAS while surpassing all Web3 industry standards for node infrastructure.
Ankr App Chains provides everything that projects need with plug-and-play tools to create their own blockchain on sidechain/subnet ecosystems like BAS, Polygon Edge, or Avalanche.
Project Galaxy wanted its community to have the best user experience possible. That means they would need fast, reliable, and distributed node infrastructure.
- GAL Chain RPC Nodes — Ankr provided load-balanced RPC endpoints that empowered Project Galaxy developers to have as many full nodes as they needed in the regions closest to their users. Serving over 200 billion RPC requests per month, Ankr is a leading provider of access to RPC endpoints across the multi-chain space.
- GAL Chain Validators — Ankr provided the decentralized validators necessary to secure the GAL Chain. Our validator binary and configuration for the GAL Chain made it easy to create validators corresponding with the BNB Chain. No one is more experienced than Ankr in running validators at scale. Ankr operates more than 2,000 validators for ETH2, BNB, Polygon, Avalanche, and Fantom.
All App Chain Building Solutions From Ankr
Decentralized applications like Project Galaxy and Web3 games like Meta have already benefited from Ankr’s “blockchain in a toolbox” app chain solutions. The below features give everything for new Web3 startups, established dApps, and Web2 organizations coming to Web3 need to get set up on their own subnet blockchain:
- Validator binary + config file (.toml)
Get validator nodes up and running for your App Chain easily with all of the necessary information to launch validators in accordance with your chosen parent chain.
2. Load-balanced RPC endpoints
Ankr provides load-balanced RPC endpoints that empower App Chain developers to have as many full nodes as they would like in the regions closest to their users.
3. White-labeled block explorer
Transparently display transaction and address data for your users without building anything on your own by integrating your chain with Ankr’s block explorer.
4. Faucet for testnet tokens
Use Ankr’s codebase to create customizable testnet faucet solutions to provide your app or game with the resources needed for testing before going live on the mainnet.
5. Direct staking support through a UI
Grow your application and increase your staking TVL with access to Ankr Staking, an integration that lets your token holders stake to validators with an easy-to-use interface.
6. Ankr’s “Exchange Readiness” program
Get your token ready for listing on major exchanges with Ankr to guide you through the technical due diligence process and assist with introductory calls.
