Announcing Blockdaemon’s Support for the Base Testnet at Launch

Press Release
Feb 23, 2023

We believe that the power of blockchain lies in its ability to create a new kind of business model that is onchain, one that is more transparent and trustless than ever before. Moving services onchain means moving those services from being run by humans to being run by code. This ensures that no one person can make changes or decisions at a system level on their own—they must work together with others to build consensus.

This kind of system will allow for more transparency and better trust between parties, which will mean lower fees, faster transactions, and higher quality products and services all around.Enter Base, an Ethereum Layer 2 (L2) chain that’s been incubated inside of Coinbase and will progressively decentralize in the years ahead.

Today, Blockdaemon is proud to support Base at launch with industry-leading blockchain infrastructure.

As the premiere institutional provider in the blockchain industry, Blockdaemon supports thousands of nodes across leading chains such as Ethereum and Solana to ensure the networks are healthy and ready for institutional adoption. Blockdaemon now extends this same level of support to foster the success of Base.

How Blockdaemon Supports Base Infrastructure

Base is a secure, low-cost, developer-friendly way to build onchain that will enable the next wave of decentralized apps or dApps to scale the cryptoeconomy to billions of users.
