Progressive decentralization is key to driving critical mass adoption of web3.
We have been working heads down on the new decentralized infrastructure network announced in September.
Today we’re sharing reflections & updates on advancements to the network so far
Progressive decentralization is the step-by-step process to ensure each layer — from data storage, indexing, querying, and verification — is decentralized.
We are building a consortium of web3 infrastructure providers to form an independent network in addition to our current business.
This will enable various providers to offer RPC service resulting in no single point of failure. This is the power of decentralization.
The network design is currently in the initial stages, as are the network roles:
- Infrastructure Providers - to provide network capacity
- Watchers - to periodically test providers
- Ingress Operators - to distribute the user request across the network
It may seem like Infura’s path to decentralization has just begun, but progressive decentralization is a step-by-step process and we’ve been working on this since day one.
