NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Infura, a ConsenSys product that provides the world’s leading suite of blockchain developer tools, announced today that its user base has increased by 250%, from 100,000 to 350,000 developers in less than a year.
The Infura platform offers API services to quickly connect to Ethereum and other networks such as IPFS, Arbitrum, Polygon, and Optimism, making it easier for Web3 developers to build applications and Web2 developers to join the blockchain ecosystem. When developers build with Infura and ConsenSys developer products, they can do everything from creating a smart contract with Truffle, ensure the security of their application with Diligence, and seamlessly integrate the world's leading Web3 wallet with MetaMask.
Infura’s growth aligns with the rising number of dapps being built on Ethereum, which increased by 10% between September 2020 and 2021. 13% of Infura’s network requests are now on Layer 2 networks, indicating an increasing demand for Ethereum scaling solutions.
“Since Day 1, Infura has strived to make building applications on Web3 accessible to everyone. We aim to help people change the world and we don’t want their tools getting in the way of their creativity. This explosion of developers shows a demand to innovate and we are going to see applications we never even dreamed of. Infura is honored to help developers on their journey,” said Michael Godsey, General Manager and head of product at Infura.
