Tampa, Fla., Sept. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pocket Network, the leading Web3 decentralized infrastructure protocol, is rolling out a major update to its Pocket Portal service. Designed to onboard developers to tap into Pocket Network’s decentralized global network of RPC nodes, the Pocket Portal allows Web3 developers to easily create accounts, create RPC endpoints for their dApps, and access blockchain data on any of the dozens of blockchains supported by Pocket.
“Developers will benefit from the same reliability and resilience as our portal, which provides decentralized node service, lower latency and multi-chain access for data relays, but now with more payment options and service,” said Michael O’Rourke, CEO of Pocket Network. “We have completely revamped the Pocket Portal backend and frontend to optimize the user experience, giving Web3 developers the ability to transform our infrastructure as a service platform into infrastructure as an asset.”
Recently updated Pocket Portal service plans include an Always Free tier, a Pay As You Go (PAYG) tier, and custom Enterprise options. The Always Free tier provides developers with up to 250,000 daily data relays for their dApps. If a dApp’s traffic demands exceed that, developers can now opt for a streamlined Pay As You Go plan or engage with the Pocket Network team for a custom enterprise plan. With the PAYG model, developers only pay for the data relays their dApps actually use each month, rather than paying a flat fee upfront for relay traffic they might not be using. The new PAYG plan also allows developers to create unlimited endpoints for up to 2 dApps on each account.
Setting up decentralized infrastructure access through the Pocket Portal is now much easier for Web3 developers, as payments beyond the free tier can be made directly through the portal via a Stripe integration. For relays beyond the Always Free tier (250,000 per day), developers pay a fixed price per relay, with bills paid monthly. With this redesign of its Pocket Portal gateway, Pocket Network now offers a true self-service access point to the decentralized RPC infrastructure service.
Pocket Network also announced a brand new benefit of its upgraded Pocket Portal service, with developers able to earn $POKT rewards for using the portal and use those rewards for future service. The new Pocket Portal PAYG plan now allows developers to receive $POKT after 24 months of paid service (consecutive or not), and simply stake those $POKT for continued service after that point. This innovative approach to Pocket’s service, which is unique in the Web3 infrastructure space, allows Web3 developers to move away from paying SaaS expenses in perpetuity and provides the ability to truly “own” their dApps infrastructure with no sunk costs. . With this decision, Pocket Network has made a major shift towards transforming the RPC infrastructure into a Web3 asset, offering a whole new approach.
