Who are we at DAppNode?

DAppNode develops and maintains open source software and hardware to make web3 infrastructure accessible for all. DAppNode’s software transforms any machine where it’s installed into a personal web3 server where deploying new blockchains and DApps is a matter of two clicks.

We abstract the technical complexity and the devops tasks and provide a simple user experience with the objective of 1) allow users to run their own nodes and be sovereign with their access to nodes, validators, etc. And 2) allow DApps and networks to become more decentralized by increasing the number of independent node runners.

Currently Eth2, Gnosis Chain and Avalanche validators are the most used DApps from our users.
