Ankr Redefines Blockchain Scalability with Rollup-as-a-Service for zkSync Hyperchains


In a groundbreaking move for the blockchain industry, Ankr, a leading infrastructure solution in the Web3 space, has unveiled Rollup-as-a-Service (RaaS) support for zkSync Hyperchains built with the innovative ZK Stack. This development introduces a transformative solution for enterprises and developers eager to harness the unique benefits of zero-knowledge rollups for their decentralized applications.

ZK Stack, a free and open-source modular framework designed for constructing sovereign zero-knowledge (ZK)-powered chains, forms the backbone of this revolutionary initiative. Ankr’s RaaS enables the swift customization and deployment of independent hyperchains, providing an end-to-end engineering and infrastructure solution. This offering stands out as the fastest and most comprehensive solution available in the market, allowing clients to tap into the unparalleled scaling and security advantages of zero-knowledge rollups.

Scaling the Future of Blockchain

Ankr’s RaaS empowers clients to establish an independent ZK Stack-enabled layer 2 blockchain exclusively tailored to serve transactions from their specific use case. Currently, Ankr supports the deployment of ZK hyperchains in a testnet environment, with close collaboration with Matter Labs, a software development and cryptography company specializing in zkSync.

Kev Silk, Senior Product Manager at Ankr, emphasized the potential of ZK Stack hyperchains, stating, “Hyperchains from ZK Stack have the potential to become one of the most powerful rollup options available for developers. The distinctive scalability and security features, in addition to the seamless customization and deployment from Ankr’s Rollup as a Service, will make hyperchains an important evolution for the layer 2 space as a whole.”

Marco Cora, SVP of Business and Operations at Matter Labs, said, “Ankr stands out as one of the great infrastructure solutions in Web3, powering some of the most renowned businesses in blockchain. Having Ankr’s Rollup-as-a-Service live and integrated for developers to deploy hyperchains with ZK Stack is a significant milestone. Ankr’s Rollup-as-a-Service will reduce development time for projects and enterprises looking to deploy hyperchains and allow teams to focus on their unique use cases enabled through ZK Stack while simultaneously speeding up time to market.”

Ankr’s RaaS extends its existing Scaling Services suite, offering developers the ability to launch custom sidechains on various blockchain ecosystems. This new addition caters to the industry’s growing demand for highly scalable projects, ensuring they can benefit from Ethereum’s robust security and token model.

Ankr, known as an all-in-one Web3 developer hub, facilitates the building of Web3 apps with high-performance connections to over 40 blockchains. Recognized as an approved infrastructure partner for dedicated sidechains and L2 rollups on ecosystems like zkSync, Optimism, BNB Smart Chain, Polygon, and Avalanche, Ankr simplifies blockchain development by creating tailored solutions that include validators, RPC nodes, block explorers, testnets, staking platforms, and more.

In essence, Ankr’s Rollup-as-a-Service support for ZK Stack Hyperchains marks a significant leap forward in the world of blockchain development, offering developers and enterprises an unprecedented combination of scalability, security, and customization for their decentralized applications. As the industry continues to evolve, Ankr’s commitment to providing cutting-edge infrastructure solutions positions it as a key player in shaping the future of Web3.
