Decentralizing Infura
10-14, 10:30–11:00 (America/Bogota), Talk 3

Infura has provided a centralized API service to help grow the Ethereum and Web3 ecosystem since we launched in 2016. In 2023 we will be launching Decentralized Infura. This talk will go over the details of the decentralized protocol and the transition to it. We will also discuss why this is necessary at this point in the growth of the ecosystem and the emergence of a multi-chain future.
