    Lots of FUD against infura and other centralized node providers in this. It also bears mentioning that POKT also sponsored a very similar write up from the good folks at Messari. Exactly the same story and talking points. From my POV POKT is a proxy layer between my app / wallet and blockchains. We can easily solve accessibility issues by assigning fallback RPC nodes, there by completely obviating the need for something like POKT. I have annotated this PDF with my thoughts and saved it for posterity. In my opinion POKT is a solution in search of a problem. This write up and the one at Messari attempt to FUD centralized providers to make a case for their complex, poorly incentivized solution. They specifically cite a config mistake that prevented Venezuelan users from using MetaMask. This particular problem was resolved in a matter of hours. Story here: -
