Is blockchain decentralized enough? This middleware provider doesn’t think so – Cointelegraph

Is blockchain decentralized enough? This middleware provider doesn’t think so – Cointelegraph

A decentralized platform that provides infrastructure services for DApp developers and users says its goal is to deliver safety and stability.

According to Apron, the world remains reliant on the centralized artifacts of the Web 2.0 era — and its network is designed to serve as the foundational layer for the next generation.

While the team acknowledges that Ethereum has contributed to DApps exploding in popularity, they say operating nodes on this blockchain is both expensive and energy intensive — prompting a centralized support structure to emerge.

Apron Network is designed to shake things up by improving the infrastructure service ecosystem of the Web 3.0 world. Based on the Substrate framework, it can serve as a parachain of both Kusama and Polkadot, and delivers solutions that power the effective development of DApps and DeFi developers.

Apron’s service marketplace matches infrastructure service providers with DApp developers — and provides rankings for each of the options available. 

‘The Polkadot of middleware’

Apron says that its goal is to become the middleware of blockchain — and pave the way for cross-chain collaboration and scalability. 

The platform has been conducting technical docking with Seascape, Stafi, Dora, SubDAO and a plethora of other projects, and is establishing cooperation with the likes of Polkadot, Kusama, Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain and Huobi’s Eco Chain (HECO.) Partnerships have also been secured with Phala, Kylin, IOST, DEGO, Darwinia, Litentry, Bifrost and Math Wallet.

Earlier this month, Apron successfully developed and launched a set
