BE PART OF THE POCKET ECOSYSTEM
What does running a
Pocket Node mean?
Running a Pocket Network node means contributing to the decentralization of Web3 infrastructure, adding to the resiliency of the blockchain networks that we support, and playing a crucial part in servicing the growing data needs of Web3.
Our nodes service API requests, or “Relays,” from Web3 applications. Applications submit data requests in the form of Relays, and Pocket nodes service and validate these Relays on the appropriate blockchains.
Node runners act as the supply-side in our network, providing decentralized and globally distributed service for the data demands of applications.
