#2 Product of the DayFebruary 23, 2018

First-time Đapps makers learn the hard way that downloading and syncing the Ethereum blockchain sucks. Infura builds blockchain infrastructure and provides API calls so you can develop and run your Đapps without hosting your own node. This literally will save you DAYS.

    Pros: 

    Powers 20% of blockchain transactions

    Cons: 

    Is centralizing, a decentralized system.

    The Infura product is an essential part of the Ethereum ecosystem now. uPort uses the Infura infrastructure to handle our smartphone (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.uportMobile) application's transaction requests

    uPort has used this product for one year.

I've been tinkering with a similar idea for the last couple of years. I like your model of providing value to actual companies right now whilst thinking long-term about R&D and scalability. Looks awesome! Best of luck with everything.

Can we use this to setup transactions? I mean do transactions using wallet keys?

I am going to check this out, does your platform work with the recently released truffle drizzle? And do you support websockets?
