Developer Overview

What is Pocket?

Pocket is an agnostic network that allows any application to connect to any blockchain if nodes on the network are supporting it. Currently, we support 2 blockchains along with some of their supporting test networks. We also believe in making it easier for the application developer, so we offer integration services that we can embed Pocket in any service you provide.

When you register your application on the Pocket Network, you can connect and relay data to any blockchain that are currently supported by our protocol. Reaping the benefits of a redundant-by-design, decentralized architecture you can rest assured that your application will be run without any single points of failure.

Pocket Application Overview

Obtaining Throughput:

In order to access the Pocket Network as well as its resources. Developers have to stake the native POKT token to register their application account on the Pocket Network. The amount of tokens staked determines the number of API requests your application can send. In order to start sending a relay on the Pocket Network, you need a minimum of 1 POKT token which is locked for a minimum of 21 days.

If you would like to purchase POKT tokens to start sending relays, visit our dashboard
