Featured Project 🙌
Dappnode is a free and open-source platform that allows anyone to easily deploy and run decentralized applications (DApps) and validators. By donating to Dappnode, you are supporting the development of a better user experience for the web3 ecosystem and helping to decentralize networks.
Dappnode software is completely free, and more than 4,000 validators in Ethereum use it to maintain their nodes keeping them up-to-date. Dappnode doesn't, and can't, charge anything for its services because it's built with self-sovereignty and privacy by design.
