Dapp for Diem blockchain partners with Polkadot infrastructure provider

The decentralized application aiming to connect Facebook’s Diem blockchain with public networks is partnering with node infrastructure provider Pinknode.

The network is aimed at allowing developers to use a Polkadot parachain as a testing ground for their ideas before submitting them to the Diem blockchain.

According to Pontem founder Boris Povod, the partnership will help improve Polkadot’s current infrastructure as Pinknode provides “reliable and secure API endpoints.” The network added that Pinknode’s code would allow Polkadot developers to connect their dApps through Kusama, while Pontem and Pinknodes teams could provide "critical infrastructure for Web 3.0 purposes."
