Summary

In the past, Infura’s service was often unstable, and a large number of users relied on its free RPC service. POKT provides a free public RPC service for mainstream blockchains, but since users seldom learn about this service and find the relevant documentation accurately, and it is difficult for some novice users to configure it according to the documentation, we built the POKT version of Chainlist(rpclist.info)to help users switch to POKT with one click. We hope that this tool will become an official recommendation for the community.

Abstract

Rpclist.info is a simple web service where we list all the public RPCs supported by POKT for users to use.

Use of funds:

  1. Three years of domain name usage fees
  2. Three years of AWS costs
  3. futures will be added soon:
    3.1 multi-language support
    3.2 list all chains that POKT support

Additional needs:

We hope the official publicity channel can recommend everyone to use it as a recommended tool on Twitter and Telegram channel etc…

DNLab has been serving the Chinese community for several months, and they did a great job in OTC and Fractional pool! I appreciate their diligent work. IMO, this RPClist website is helpful for promotion Pocket’s product and the cost is reasonable.

This is a small request for a useful service, and I completely support it. Can we move this to a vote?

Agreed, in favor to putting this one to vote.

This would be super useful in onboarding new network traffic, and a very reasonable ask IMHO. Given the decline in price since the proposal was created, I wonder if the amount needs to be adjusted to cover the hosting and dns costs?

That’s pretty reasonable in my opinion.

@NPC-Leo does the request need to be adjusted higher given the current market?

Thank you for your support, at the beginning of the proposal we estimated the cost of the whole service to be between $300-$500, the price has dropped so far, but before that we got some donations from community members that have basically covered the cost, we are happy to see the community start using our tool and also hope to get recommendations so that more users can use the pokt network through it.

At the moment we got some extra donations to cover the cost, so we don’t plan to increase the fee. I appreciate your help and your tweet recommendation helped many users to know about it, which is very useful.
