OnFinality, Polkadot’s leading blockchain infrastructure provider, announces a long-standing partnership with SORA network, a new economic system with built-in tools for DeFi.
“Working with the OnFinality service is both user-friendly and allows you to get deep insights about blockchains. With constant improvements to the service, the addition of more analytics in the form of dynamic graphs, using the service is more and more pleasant”
— William Richter, Head of Ecosystem, SORA
While the partnership between OnFinality and SORA has been in place for over a year already, it had not been announced until now. During this time OnFinality has been providing SORA with an easy, reliable and scalable API to scale their platform and node deployment services for their community.
What Is SORA? ($XOR)
SORA is an on-chain governance system based around the XOR token that allows producers to make proposals for funding and all token holders make decisions on how to allocate XOR so that the best goods and services get created. People who create goods or services help to build the SORA economy when they accept XOR for them.
OnFinality’s Scalable API Service Enables SORA Users To:
- Access the SORA network quickly in minutes without having to set up or manage infrastructure
- Enjoy global performance, automated scalability and high availability of up to 99.9% uptime per year!
- Gain valuable API Insights for you to spot issues on your apps and quickly implement rectifications for a bug-free user experience
