Cronos Labs and Blockdaemon Partner to Drive Blockchain Adoption with the Ubiquity API and the Cronos Accelerator Program
Cronos Labs and Blockdaemon have announced a partnership aimed at driving the adoption of blockchain technology through the integration of the Ubiquity API with the Cronos chain and the support of the Cronos Accelerator Program.
As part of the partnership, Blockdaemon's Ubiquity API now supports the Cronos blockchain, enabling Cronos developers to seamlessly deploy, manage, and scale their blockchain infrastructure.
The Ubiquity API is a multi-protocol API suite that empowers developers to easily interact with major blockchains without owning or managing their own nodes. Developers can interact with the Cronos chain via a suite of APIs such as Universal API, Gas Fee Estimation API, Native PRC Access API as well as NFT API. Ubiquity’s powerful infrastructure tool automates tasks such as node deployment, scaling, and monitoring, freeing up developers to focus on their core development tasks.
The Ubiquity API complements Blockdaemon’s dedicated Node as a Service offering, which already supports Cronos. Now that the full range of blockchain read/write infrastructure services is available, start-ups, mid-sized companies and large enterprises can select the institutional grade cloud infrastructure option most suited to their needs.
In addition, Blockdaemon is partnering with Cronos Labs to support the Cronos Accelerator Program. This program provides resources, mentoring, and funding to founders who are building the next generation of Web3 applications and infrastructure on the Cronos Chain.
Through this partnership, Blockdaemon will offer an exclusive 12-month free trial of Ubiquity API suite to all participating projects, technical support and mentorship to participants in the Cronos Accelerator Program, helping them accelerate the development of their blockchain solutions and bring them to market faster.
"We are thrilled to partner with Blockdaemon to support the Cronos Accelerator Program and integrate the Ubiquity API with Cronos," said Ken Timsit, Head of Cronos Labs. "This collaboration will empower developers to build innovative blockchain solutions that solve real-world problems and drive the growth of the Cronos developer ecosystem."
"We are excited to support the Cronos Accelerator Program and integrate the Blockdaemon Ubiquity API with the Cronos Chain," said Andrew Vranjes, VP of Sales and GM of APAC at Blockdaemon "Our goal is to provide projects with the infrastructure management tools they need to build on the Cronos Chain, so we can help accelerate the development pace of blockchain use cases that can bring more everyday users into Web3."
About Cronos Chain
Cronos (cronos.org) is the leading EVM-compatible Layer-1 blockchain network built on the Cosmos SDK, supported by Crypto.com, Crypto.org and more than 500 app developers and partners.
Cronos is building an open ecosystem where developers can create their own DeFi and GameFi applications, targeting a base of 80+ million users globally. In June 2022, Cronos Labs launched a $100M-funded Accelerator Program to help developers build new projects and the future of Web3 within the Cronos ecosystem.
When developers build on Cronos, they can leverage all Ethereum developer tools (i.e. Solidity, Truffle, Hardhat, OpenZeppelin, Web3.js, ethers.js, ChainSafe Gaming SDK); leading crypto wallets (i.e. MetaMask, Crypto.com Defi Wallet, Trust Wallet); wrapped versions of the world’s top 50 cryptocurrencies; Cronos Play, a suite of developer tools for Unity, C++ and Unreal engine; inter-blockchain communication (IBC) cross-chain connectivity to Cosmos chains; and a rich ecosystem of composable DeFi and GameFi dapps.
