Fast-growing blockchain platforms face technical, time, and cost issues scaling up node networks to meet higher resource demands. The PolkaFoundry team is pleased to announce its partnership with Pinknode, a node-as-a-service solution provider for the Polkadot protocol, to support the immediate deployment and optimization of the node network of applications running on PolkaFoundry.
Under the partnership, the parties have committed to the following:
- PolkaFoundry has appointed Pinknode as its key node provider. As such, Pinknode will provide infrastructure support to all projects building on PolkaFoundry.
- The PolkaFoundry network will utilize Pinknode’s secure and reliable node infrastructure as its backbone.
- PinkNode will collaborate with PolkaFoundry on node research and development initiatives to support the PKF developer platform for DeFi and NFT apps.
PolkaFoundry supports end-to-end integration of DeFi and NFT dApps building on the scalable and interoperable Substrate-based Polkadot multi-chain. The one-stop dApp factory provides UX, onboarding, data oracle, and other solutions. With the addition of Pinknode node services delivered as Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), dApps can access reliable node solutions for Polkadot and its parachains, as well as proprietary end-to-end node operation services.
As the node provider for PolkaFoundry, Pinknode will provide the node infrastructure and related support to all projects building on PolkaFoundry. Blockchains in various stages of development, from testnet to scaling for mass adoption, can quickly deploy Pinknode’s nodes-as-a-services (NaaS) and its scalable API suite to meet a broad array of dApp node network needs. The maintenance-free nodes running on enterprise-grade infrastructure are secure, reliable, and supported by strict testing maintenance protocols.
“We are inspired by the vision of the Pinknode team to be the superhighway that connects projects in the fast-growing PolkaFoundry network. We’re experiencing a phenomenal level of proactivity from day one of our collaboration and we are excited about future NaaS developments growing out of this partnership. We are eager to see the team’s efforts and the results in coming months”
-Thi Truong, CEO & Co-Founder at PolkaFoundry.
Also as part of the PolkaFoundry-Pinknode partnership, PolkaFoundry will be using Pinknode’s reliable and high throughput infrastructure as its backbone. The partnership meets the commitment of both parties to streamlining the onboarding process and supporting the smooth operations of projects on the Polkadot network.
“PolkaFoundry team has proven themselves to be a highly effective one, launching new features and products one after another, with the most recent being the state-of-the-art launchpad, Red Kite. We foresee that PolkaFoundry will continue to play a crucial role in Polkadot’s ecosystem. We are looking forward to collaborating with PolkaFoundry to create easy-to-use and scalable infrastructure solutions for their users, and the ecosystem at large”
- Eric Poh, Co-founder at Pinknode
