EPNS to gamify the stone age era of communication for Web3 Projects.

In an official press statement, Harsh Rajat at EPNS said,

“Notifications are a basic necessity for dApps and smart contracts and
should not be an option for a popular smart contract, but a communication
layer that should be accessible to everyone. This is the crucial missing piece
of web3 infrastructure that will enable adoption. Innovation drives enthusi-
asts but adoption needs user ease and engagement. We are truly grateful
and happy to have the funding that will go into building the world’s first de-
centralized notification protocol!”

EPNS aims to provide a seamless communication layer for Dapps and web3 applications. Additionally, it aims to become the market leader for Web3 applications to provide them an effective communication layer. Moreover, it further enables crypto users to receive notifications that they are interested in and rewards for enabling the service. The incentivization feature and communication service make it ideal for most projects to integrate it on their platforms, thus keeping their users informed.
