ANKR | 04.03| 107

Ankr and Harmony have been long time partners, and we once more want to emphasize that this is not your typical crypto meme partnership which is used only for marketing purposes. Our collaboration with the Harmony team goes way back and includes various efforts to strengthen each other’s propositions.

To start with, Ankr has provided server capacity to the Harmony team for hosting their company nodes and now we are working together with the goal of expanding the Harmony node network and growing Ankr’s user base in the process.

Harmony have recently launched the next phase of their Pangea Open Staking program, where community members are incentivized to run a Testnet Validator Node and participate in the Harmony network. The Harmony team has provided a pool of 10,000,000 ONE tokens as rewards for external Validators in this phase of Open Staking.

Our purpose at Ankr is to take away any possible barriers for users to participate in the Harmony network.To achieve this, we focus heavily on ease of use and affordable pricing of our node hosting solutions.

We have developed a one-click node deployment application for Harmony Open Staking Validator nodes, which is available in our node market. This is the most straightforward and effortless way to set up a Harmony Open Staking Testnet node and participate Harmony network, earning token incentives in the process!

As Ankr is utilizing idle resources from top-class data centers all over the world, we are able to provide our hosting at much lower cost than public cloud providers such as Amazon AWS and DigitalOcean.

Running a Harmony Validator node on Ankr costs will be significantly cheaper than on AWS, at only 29.00 USD per month, with the same specs and a lot less manual work to set up and maintain the node. Moreover, our nodes are distributed globally across multiple providers to increase resiliency and stability.

To help kickstart this second phase of the Harmony Open Staking campaign we now provide 2 months of free hosting for all participants who run the Harmony Validator node on Ankr!

How to participate?

If you are interested, you need to claim one of the 200 external Validator seats by setting up the Open Staking Testnet node on https://app.ankr.com/. If you have not registered an account yet, please create one.

In the node market, select the Harmony Open Staking Testnet node and deploy it with just a few simple clicks. If you need any guidance, please check our tutorial here.

We have set the hosting fee for the Harmony Open Staking Testnet node to 0.00 USD for the first 2 months. After these two months, users need to make sure they have enough credit, at least 29.00 USD worth of tokens, in their account to continue running the node.
