Web 3.0 has arguably the most substantial development potential for companies since the introduction of the internet. Airnode makes it easy to get started with this technology. It is a free and open-source Web3-API middleware that connects any web API to a blockchain application.
Decentralization is at the heart of Web3 security, which has been a source of concern for API providers. Smart contracts cannot directly connect to APIs that offer access to real-world data and services. Oracles serve as a link between blockchains and the physical world. Airnode serves as the API economy's Web3 oracle solution in this game. It is a serverless platform that connects any web API to any blockchain application. Traditional oracles need the intervention of a third party. Airnode does away with the necessity for a third-party middleman. Third-party oracles charge exorbitant fees to link businesses to the blockchain. With Airnode, any business can connect directly to blockchain apps while maintaining complete revenue control. It is a free and open-source platform that assures a user's connection to the blockchain is always in their hands.
