The Cloudflare web infrastructure platform has announced that it supports the development and implementation of Ethereum for its client through its Ethereum and IPFS gateways. Cloudflare customers can now log into the dashboard and set up a zone for Ethereum, the Interplanetary File System (IPFS), or both.
As one of the fastest growing data storage companies, Cloudflare is positioned as an underlying web infrastructure that powers a variety of blockchain-based applications.
Cloudflare’s Ethereum Gateway allows users read and write access to thewithout installing any software on their computers. In particular, they can read and access all the information that the existing nodes in the blockchain have validated without barriers.
According to a recent blog post from the company, it has created a new API with end-to-end managed hostname implementation, ensuring that creating and managing gateways remains fast and frictionless.
One of the amazing features, as described, is that new testnet support is installed to “ensure that new development can be easily tested, hardened and deployed on the mainnet without incurring additional risk to the blockchain network” .
To further demonstrate its infrastructure support for web3 applications, the post outlined that DeFi protocols can use the Cloudflare IPFS gateway to serve their front-end web applications. Additionally, NFT designers can use the Ethereum Gateway to launch new offerings and the IPFS Gateway to store the digital assets in a decentralized system.
Also, Dapps with a high volume of traffic can use their service to avoid web congestion.
Cloudflare Supports Ethereum PoS Transition
Cloudflare also cited Ethereum’s upcoming transition to Proof-of-State via “the Merger” as a critical time to resolve the “scaling and environmental challenges facing blockchain technologies today.” The company stated that it will continue to support the Ethereum PoS transition.
“Over the next few months, cloud flare will throw, and bet completely, Ethereal validation nodes in the cloud flare global network as the community approaches its transition from Proof-of-Work to Proof-of-Stake with ‘The Merge’. These nodes will serve as a testing ground for research on energy efficiency, consistency management, and network speed.”
By running Proof-of-Stake validation nodes on your network, Cloudflare confirms that you have not and will not run Proof-of-Work infrastructure.
