Ankr supports Dusk Network for node deployment, staking, and growth; creating simple pathways for the community to run a node.

A strong node-running community is essential for any blockchain project, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that we’ll be doing everything possible to onboard as many DUSK holders as we can.

💡 Did you know: there are two node types involved in the consensus? As a proof-of-stake based blockchain, Dusk Network is secured by Block Generator and Provisioner nodes. Together they form a powerful staking mechanism that bolsters the network’s security.

Setting up a blockchain node can be challenging. That is why we choose to make it as simple as possible to stake, so even those without any technical knowledge can run a node, secure the network, and start earning rewards. This is where Ankr enters the picture.

The partnership between Ankr and Dusk Network will mutually benefit both parties by expanding each other's reach and creating exposure to the wider node running communities. Dusk Network will use Ankr’s solutions to host Block Generator and Provisioner nodes for DevNet, TestNet, and MainNet purposes, as well as provide one-click deployment infrastructure for the Dusk Community.

This is what Ankr is proficient at. Ankr enables users to easily deploy their nodes and earn staking rewards. In recent years, they’ve become one of the most popular staking providers, and for good reason. With Ankr, setting up a Dusk Node is just one-click away. And once a node is set up, users can select various settings related to automated monitoring and simply choose how they would like to manage their node.

Today, Ankr supports more than 40 blockchain protocols for staking or developing purposes - and Dusk Network will soon be among them
