Pocket Network will provide NEAR developers with easy Web3 app deployment.
Pocket Network claims that the latest connection with NEAR enables native developers to distribute their apps on other supported blockchains including Ethereum, Solana, Polygon, and others. Pocket Network, a relay infrastructure middleware protocol, revealed a service integration to increase NEAR blockchain network bandwidth while allowing Web3 developers to deploy faster. The latest connection with NEAR, according to Pocket Network, allows native developers to launch their apps on other supported blockchains including Ethereum, Solana, Fuse, Avalanche, Harmony, and Polygon. Furthermore, by integrating with many blockchains, NEAR developers can alleviate worries about single points of failure caused by delays or other service interruptions.
Pocket Network aspires to provide 100% uptime for projects by utilizing a worldwide distributed network of approximately 47,000 complete nodes that support Web3 apps across 46 blockchains. Pocket Network intends to provide income-generating options for full-node operators by accepting payments in its in-house token Pocket Network (POKT) for network traffic service. “It’s a win-win-win situation for NEAR apps, NEAR nodes, and the Pocket Network protocol,” said Pocket Network co-founder and CEO Michael O’Rourke. The integration of Pocket Network, which autonomously allocates bandwidth and relays, is designed to eliminate friction when integrating decentralized apps via Pocket Portal, a layer-2 solution built on top of the Pocket Network protocol. Cameron Dennis, head of ecosystems at NEAR Foundation, commented on the development that he is excited that NEAR developers will now have the option of using Pocket Network’s decentralized network of RPC endpoints or alternative centralized solutions.
