Ankr has just hired decentralization industry leader and tech start-up entrepreneur Gregory Gopman to lead decentralization efforts and establish Ankr as the industry standard.
San Fransisco, California – February 16, 2022 – Gregory Gopman has taken on a new role as the Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer (CMBDO) for the Ankr multi-chain network. Gopman’s career has already established him as a prominent figure in the decentralized Web3 movement.
Gopman has also advised several DeFi projects and previously collaborated with Ethereum’s Vlad Zamfir on his PoS and Sharding Casper upgrades. He spent his career working in complicated technical firms and assisting them in making sense of information down to easy-to-understand terms that the general public can connect with. It’s just the same with Ankr, who have built the only platform with a one-of-a-kind combination of node infrastructure, staking, and DeFi solutions for developers. Ankr gives investors a high return staking on over eight chains, while developers may create Web3 DeFi applications through the portal.
Over 10 years of his career was spent working with startups, with a 5:5 split between Web 2.0 and Web3 ventures. He’s the creator of Akash Network ($AKT) and crypto growth consulting Mewn, assisting in the rise of decentralized infrastructure firms like Kadena from an $80M market capitalization to $4B.
By providing nodes on more than fifty PoS chains, Ankr is able to merge Web3 and DeFi more effectively. Node deployment with one click is simple to set up and run, allowing you to quickly create and manage nodes and validator nodes on any blockchain of your choosing, with little technical knowledge. Enterprise-level solutions are also available. Ankr is linked with Binance, Polkadox, and and Fantom, and is the main RPC provider for numerous chains including Polygon.
Ankr aims to democratize Web3, and they’re even competing with Amazon AWS, offering a decentralized cloud-based architecture. Utilizing idle cloud computing resources, costs may go down while energy isn’t wasted as it was in the traditional model, allowing stakers to profit from their own resources.
This would assist them in competing against AWS, which has a solid foundation in the cloud computing sector. The Ankr Network claims to be half the price of AWS, more environmentally friendly, distributed, and with 24/7 customer care. When asked about his career prospects at Ankr, Gopman was overflowing with optimism. He stated, “If I could help Kadena get to a $4B market cap, I don’t see why we can’t do at least the same for Ankr.”
This is a telling fact because Kadena is similar in obscurity to retail investors, until recently when Mewn collaborated with them in July of 2021.
Their new CMBDO joins an established technology team and a long list of industry partnerships. Ankr is the future of the decentralized web3 infrastructure movement, according to Gopman, and it has a chance to become one of the most important players in multi-chain, cross-chain, and Infrastructure Finance, a new market just getting off the ground. He is presently working on decentralizing their infrastructure and retooling their protocol and tokenomics to align more with the Web3 ethos.
Ankr will be debuting several of these new decentralized projects at the upcoming ETHDenver event, which runs Feb. 16-20. Metis, Boba, and the Polygon Network are co-hosts for the first Multi-Chain Party. ETHDenver is the world’s largest and longest-running Ethereum event. The re-designed tokenomics and decentralized infrastructure model, as well as the first in a series of worldwide roadshows for the newly appointed CMBDO to attend and present at, will be revealed during the event.
Ankr is building the future of decentralized infrastructure and multi-chain solutions, servicing over 50 proof-of-stake chains with an industry leading global node delivery system and developer toolkit. Ankr serves over 1T transactions a year across Web3 and is the main infrastructure provider for BSC, Fantom, and Polygon chains as of 2022.
