PRICE RELEASE Pocket NetworkMonthly revenues of $56,000,000 or more in DecemberThis place it amongst the Top Five Global Revenue Producers of Blockchains. It surpasses many other chains.

Tampa Bay, Florida, U.S.A – 6th January 2022 – Pocket Network – an infrastructure middleware protocol that provides decentralized cloud computing and abundant bandwidth on full nodes to other applications across 20 blockchains, including Ethereum, Polygon, Solana and Harmony A strategic round of funding totaling $10 million was closed by Republic Capital. RockTree Capital. Arrington Capital. C2 Ventures. Other notable participants include Coinshares. Decentral Park Capital. Dominance Ventures.

Pocket Network now has over 2 billion weekly relays, up from 100.000 at the beginning of 2021. It is growing rapidly as L1s and other dApps demand its services. Relays were at 5.5 Billion in December, compared with 89M twelve months ago.

Since July, Pocket Network’s usage has more than doubled monthly, measured in “relays” which are API calls processed by the protocol. This week it set a new daily record with 300M+ relays. The network’s usage growth has led to a corresponding increase in node count. A network currently served by more than 18,000 nodes is managed by hundreds independent providers and communities.

The December month saw a total revenue increase of $56 million in network revenues. Pocket Network is already comparatively amongst the Top 5 revenue producers for all blockchains and blockchain applications globally (source data from Token Terminal*), while remaining relatively under the radar until now, including having revenues surpassing that of Solana, Elrond, Harmony, and most DeFi protocols.

“Today in blockchain, the valuation of a project is based on its actual performance and real metrics. Pocket Network has discovered a treasure that scales at lightning speed, and is easily measured onchain. Today, many exchanges and apps still depend on Web2 central cloud computing. They can also rely on hosting providers that are Web2 centralized. This can lead to costly downtime. RockTree thinks Pocket Network is essential infrastructure for the Web3 Revolution. It offers decentralization, constant uptime and true decentralization for multi-chain blockchain futurities. Just look at the onchain data” said Omer Ozden, CEO of RockTree Capital, a fund and merchant bank focused on projects at the nexus of Asia and North America. “I want to add that it is Pocket’s high quality team and leadership that has made it an easy choice for RockTree to be their Asia partner and invest.”

Pocket Network is looking to expand on the already huge community of thousands upon thousands of node runners. It aims at scaling into the trillions relays per hour spread across hundreds and thousands of full nodes over the next 5 year.

“We’re incredibly excited to support Pocket Network in its mission to incentivize L1 decentralization. We are believers in many different ecosystems — including Terra, Algorand & Polkadot — and understand the need for wide node distribution at the base layer. Ultimately, POKT is critical to enhancing the long-term robustness and antifragility of the entire crypto-ecosystem”, said Michael Arrington, Founder of Arrington Capital.

“Pocket Network’s market-based approach to infrastructure properly demonstrates how Web3-native services can outcompete Web2 incumbents both in economics and performance. For blockchain app developers and node runners alike, Pocket is a clear no-brainer.” added Alex Ye, Managing Director, of Republic Crypto.

Rocktree Capital is a strategic partner of ours, which has helped us accelerate global growth in all major blockchain markets. We are thrilled to share the continuation of our plan with Republic Capital, Arrington Capital, and other high-impact players that add value to the entire Pocket Network ecosystem.– Michael O’Rourke, CEO of Pocket Network

Pocket Network plans to grow developer adoption through multiple initiatives. In particular, the network will expand into Asia-Pacific in the next year with multi-jurisdictional expansion.
