Hey there 馃憢

We hope everyone is having another safe and productive month. Over at Infura, we鈥檝e been furiously preparing for some important launches that will expand Infura鈥檚 Web3.0 suite. Some launches we can鈥檛 talk about quite yet (stay tuned!) but we can talk about one of the exciting projects we鈥檙e building support for, Eth 2.0.

In this month鈥檚 update, you鈥檒l find an update on our Beacon Chain API (and how to apply for it), a recap of the recent IPFS Pinning Summit (ICYMI), how to create a Compound smart contract API with Infura, and more.

Eth 2.0 is coming - and so is our Beacon Chain API Private Beta!

Last Chance to Apply For Invite-Only Access

In preparation for the launch of Ethereum 2.0, we鈥檝e planned a limited time private beta release of Infura鈥檚 Eth2 Beacon Chain API. We are limiting access to a small set of users to help refine the product before making it more widely available. If you want the chance to help shape our Eth2 testnet API, apply now and register your interest. Documentation will be sent out directly to users who are accepted into the beta.

New Webinar: Creating a Compound Smart Contract API with Infura

Our good friends at ConsenSys Academy are hosting bi-weekly livestreams for developers and crypto-curious who want to dive into the code, tools, products, and ideas driving innovation in the Ethereum ecosystem.

Last week, Infura鈥檚 Sean Brennan and Compound鈥檚 Adam Bavosa hosted a livestream webinar where they reviewed the concepts and code required to build your own API to invoke Compound protocol smart contracts using conventional HTTP requests, with Infura as the bridge between the Ethereum network and your application. For those of you who are not familiar, Compound is an interest rate protocol for supplying and borrowing crypto assets on Ethereum.
