Happy December, everyone! ☃️🌲☃️

The past month was an exceptionally busy month for our team and we're excited to share a ton of exciting updates with the developer community! This roundup brings you a brand NEW Infura product offering, news of our recent acquisition, a limited time BONUS when you upgrade to Infura+, new docs and developer tutorials, and so much more!

Introducing Infura Transactions

Infura Transactions (ITX) is a simplified way to send Ethereum transactions - and it’s now LIVE on Rinkeby in Alpha mode!

  • Send transactions without having to worry about setting the right gas price
  • Benefit from the ITX monitoring infrastructure that ensures transactions are re-published with competitive gas prices rather than getting stuck or dropped from the network pool
  • Submit transactions to Ethereum only once and pay the minimum gas possible required by the current network conditions to ensure transactions are successfully mined.
  • Pay for the gas of a transaction on behalf of their users.

Only a limited number of developers will be admitted into the ITX alpha, so submit your request here to be considered.

You can learn more about how Infura Transactions works in our latest blog post.

ICYMI, ConsenSys has acquired any.sender to join the Infura team!

Infura + any.sender 

Any.sender is a team of two very talented engineers, Patrick McCorry and Chris Buckland, who built an awesome Ethereum transaction relaying service that makes the transaction sending process much easier, while lowering the cost of the transaction by actively managing the associated gas.

Improving the transaction experience for developers is a problem we’re passionate about and the work that the any.sender team has done will power many Infura features that target this problem.

Ethereum 2.0 Successfully Launched!

With more than 95% participation from validators, Ethereum 2.0 has successfully launched! A historic moment for Ethereum and the ecosystem at large!

Ethereum 2.0 phases in the coming years will enable ETH transfers and withdrawals, shard chains fully-compatible with smart contracts, contract calls and execution environments for scalable dApps, and more. While companies and developers running applications on Ethereum 2.0 can still choose to run their own client and node infrastructure, they will also have the opportunity to connect to Infura’s Eth2 Beacon Chain API. No matter if you are a hobbyist wanting to run your own infrastructure or an institution wanting to provide staking services to clients, we’ve likely got a solution for you.

Our Eth2 API is live on mainnet! - Drop us a message to register your interest in accessing our Beta.

"This Boom Feels Organic; Traffic's Not Coming Out of The Blue Like With ICOs in 2017"

Our Co-Founder, E.G. Galano, chats with The Defiant’s Cami Russo about what it takes to run cloud-optimized Ethereum infrastructure, the different use cases for running your own node versus using Infura, and his take on the DeFi boom. Listen to the episode here.
