Pocket Network, a middleware protocol for relay infrastructure, has announced a service integration that will increase the network bandwidth of NEAR and allow Web3 developers to deploy faster.

Pocket Network reports that the most recent integration with NEAR allows native programmers to deploy applications to other supported blockchains such as Ethereum, Solana and Fuse, Avalanche. Harmony, Harmony, Harmony, and Polygon. NEAR developers are able to overcome concerns about single points of failure caused by bottlenecks and other service disruptions by integrating with multiple blockchains.

Pocket Network is a global distributed network of more than 47,000 nodes that services Web3 applications across 46 Blockchains. It aims to achieve 100% up-time for all projects.

Pocket Network is a network that offers payments in its own token Pocket Network (POKT), to full-node operators. This allows them to generate revenue by creating revenue opportunities. Michael O’Rourke (co-founder and CEO, Pocket Network) stated that it is a win-win situation for NEAR apps and NEAR nodes as well as the Pocket Network protocol.

Pocket Network’s integration autonomously allocating bandwidth, relays, and the NEAR ecosystem will see reduced friction when connecting decentralized apps (DApps), via Pocket Portal, which is a layer-2 product that sits on top of Pocket Network protocol. Cameron Dennis, NEAR Foundation’s head of ecosystems, spoke out about the new development.

“I am thrilled that NEAR developers now have the option to choose between Pocket Network’s decentralized RPC endpoint network and other centralized solutions.”

Many popular blockchains, including Fantom and Polygon, offered assistance to Terra’s defunct developer community to help them migrate to other chains.

Ryan Wyatt CEO of Polygon Studios, said that the Polygon community is ready to receive developers and communities for these Terra projects.

Fantom, a Layer-1 blockchain project, also extended its support for Terra by promising to help any developer or project that wants to move away Terra blockchain.
