Pocket Network — an infrastructure middleware protocol that facilitates decentralized multichain blockchain access to developer applications in Web3, including the Ethereum, Polygon, Avalanche, Solana, Fuse, OEC and Harmony networks — has reported a surge in industry demand with a record of 3 billion relays serviced during the last seven days. 

This achievement has seen numbers grow from 5 million daily relays less than a year ago to more than 600 million daily relays — a dramatic 120-fold increase. 

This latest surge was shown throughout the week when several single-day-relay all-time-high records were achieved, oftentimes consecutively. Relays are being serviced by hundreds — if not thousands — of independent node runners on six continents. More than 38,000 nodes are serving apps at once, rotated out every hour and coordinated by a protocol that takes zero rent. This demand is agnostic to market conditions and will continue to be a mainstay in a bear or bull market. 

“Pocket’s relay growth is evidence of a massive acceleration of growth in the Web3 ecosystem as a whole,” said Michael O’Rourke, CEO and founder of Pocket Network. “In parallel to the growth in relays has been our community. It is truly remarkable to see how many people see the importance of decentralized infrastructure that Pocket is building.” 

Pocket Network is currently ahead of its goal of breaking the 1 billion relays-per-day milestone by the end of 2022 while new blockchains and app integrations continue switching to Pocket Network as the decentralized global infrastructure provider of choice. Being resilient, faster, cheaper and better has been the winning formula to Pocket’s scale and dominance.
