Pocket Network, an infrastructure middleware protocol that facilitates decentralized cloud computing and abundant bandwidth on full nodes to other applications in Web3 across 37 blockchains, including Ethereum, Polygon, Avalanche, Solana, Fuse, and Harmony, announced today its decentralized node infrastructure has expanded globally across 6 continents and into 30+ countries.
This degree of geo-availability at the protocol level ensures that regardless of the political climate, geo-specific natural disasters, or other external factors, users continue to have access to Pocket’s privacy-focused and decentralized RPC service which does not suffer from outages or other issues related to Web2 centralization and singular endpoints.
The design of Pocket Network is to obviate these kinds of problems with a distributed node network that is highly redundant by design. Contrary to the centralized incumbents who are bound to operational bottlenecks when expanding, Pocket Network is relieved of the burden of running their own nodes.
In this sense, Pocket operates similarly to the most prominent marketplaces like Uber and Airbnb. Situating itself as a coordination-providing intermediary network also allows the network to remain chain agnostic, function as an L0, and rapidly scale the services into new chains.
“We live by the ethos of decentralization, our globally distributed decentralized infrastructure eliminates single points of failure and increases network security.”
– Michael O’Rourke, CEO & Co-Founder of Pocket Network
Projects in DeFi, GameFi, etc. with difficulty sourcing secure infrastructure due to regional differences in regulation can choose Pocket Network. Pocket’s protocol automatically load balances and distributes work to the global network of community-owned nodes, ensuring availability to any country, at any time. Integrated availability reclaims vital resources, that can be used to cut costs or be reallocated elsewhere.
