Two awesome announcements today to help devs optimize their gas usage:
ConsenSys has acquired any.sender to join the Infura team! Any.sender is a team of two very talented engineers, Patrick McCorry and Chris Buckland, who built an Ethereum transaction relaying service that not only makes the transaction sending process much easier for developers and end-users, but also prevents them from overspending on network fees by actively managing the gas involved in sending their transactions.
The alpha release of Infura Transactions is live on Rinkeby and available for testing! Relayed transactions via ITX can be paid for by depositing ETH with Infura’s on-chain deposit contract. This action credits the user’s gas tank with the corresponding amount of ETH. The ITX relay system manages the user’s gas tank, taking the complexity out of gas management for devs!
