Strategic Partnership is when two commercial enterprises conclude to execute a mutually drawn agreement. A strategic partnership between different enterprises is crucial for their growth in the market. Commercial enterprises may agree to enter into strategic partnerships for market expansion, brand awareness, or sourcing capital for survival.
Three common types of strategic partnership are Vertical Partnership, Horizontal Partnership, and Joint Venture. Enterprises with a similar background come together under Horizontal Partnership to capture a larger market share. In contrast, in Vertical Partnership, enterprises come together with those on a similar supply chain.
They form a new legal entity under the concept of Joint Venture. The partners share the profits and risks of the new legal entity.

Preparation For Days To Come
Syscoin has entered into a strategic partnership with Ankr by establishing a long-term relationship. Based on the terms agreed by both the partners, Ankr will undertake the responsibility of providing its RPC service.
The RPC service will extend to AnkrScan and Network Enhanced Virtual Machine, among many others.
Ankr will initially provide the service to Network Enhanced Virtual Machine, followed by the Bitcoin-based UTXO chain, also known as Syscoin Core. The services will extend to all the future layers of Syscoin as well.
Ankr will incentivize node Operators in the form of ANKR Tokens. These can be earned by sharing the resources of their respective nodes to support the RPC service. Operators will not be required to collateralize 100k SYS while contributing to the infrastructure of Syscoin.
Michiel, the Foundation Vice President of Syscoin, called Ankr an excellent ally that one could ever have. Michiel said that the strategic partner and offerings of Ankr will prove to be a crucial step in the ascension of Syscoin.
Dmitri Fotesco, the Product Manager of Ankr, pitched in to highlight the benefits of the strategic partnership. Dmitri said that the strategic partnership would instantly enable developers to access high-performance Syscoin RPC.
Developers would also be able to request calls and receive information that highlights the results of running a Syscoin full node themselves.
Syscoin further plans to integrate AnkrScan to gain access to the functionality of Etherscan.
