Bware Labs, a leading blockchain infrastructure provider, is delighted to announce the launch of the Blast mainnet bringing a new generation of blockchain APIs.
Created as a blockchain API platform, Blast is designed to provide easy blockchain access to the most relevant networks within the blockchain space. Blast helps developers get RPC, WebSocket, and REST access to the growing number of blockchain networks. This is done by following a couple of simple steps.
Notably, the Blast mainnet will allow the company to introduce a new generation of blockchain APIs. These APIs will rely mainly on Blast’s Proof of Quality protocol for speed and reliability because their nodes can satisfy the platform’s performance and data integrity standards. The Proof of Quality protocol lets node owners join the Blast Protocol as Node Providers permissionlessly.
Following the launch, Node providers wishing to participate in the Blast protocol must stake blast tokens. Also, the Blast delegation explorer, Blast, will allow other users to earn an APY by delegating to Node providers.
Commenting on the mainnet, Bware Labs’ CEO Flavian Manea explained:
“The biggest challenge is being true to your word when it comes to what you want to bring to the table. Maintaining above industry-level standards in terms of quality while running the platform in a decentralized manner is definitely not easy. In order to tackle that, we had to find our own routes and methods that could ensure that the nodes on Blast present the required performance and that would not prohibit the scalability potential of Blast. Now, decentralization is in sight – all hands-on deck, lads, let’s launch this ship!”
Flavian added that the mainnet would allow the community to participate in the protocol by delegating Blast’s INFRA tokens to available staking pools.
According to the Blast team, the mainnet launch is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to support Web3 developers. Blast hopes to help the developers through their entire blockchain journey by providing high-quality solutions enabling them to scale their products faster and easier.
Blast plans to roll out the mainnet in stages. At the end of the Houston Testnet, Bware plans to start onboarding the testnet participants. Two weeks after, Blast will start the permissionless onboarding for anyone who wants to become a Node provider, which will be done alongside the launch of the INFRA token.
