Ankr - A Shared Cloud Economy Driven by Idle Processing Power
Ankr is a distributed computing platform that aims to leverage idle computing resources in data centers and edge devices. What Ankr enables is a Sharing Economy model where enterprises and consumers can monetize their spare computing capacities from their devices, on-premise servers, private cloud and even public cloud. This enables Ankr to provide computing power much closer to users at a much cheaper price.

Cloud Computing is projected to be a trillion dollar market, yet it is monopolized by some of the largest tech conglomerates in the world. Only these giants can afford the high human capital cost and upfront server costs, but this only results in a higher margin for customers.
We believe we can provide the lower barrier for businesses and consumers around the world to enter the cloud by bring compute resources closer to them at a cheaper price.
Ankr's innovations include:
- Resource discovery and repurposing for containerized microservices
- Dynamic pricing marketplace for using idle capacities
- Seamless support for building applications using Trusted Execution Environment
- Blockchain-native tokens for off-chain computation, micropayment, fulfillment and transaction settlement
