"We are blown away by the performance boost that the new ar.io gateways offer. Being able to receive 1000x more data per query is an absolute game changer when building applications on the permaweb."
“The importance of ar.io gateways cannot be understated. Incentivizing available and accurate data on the Permaweb has been the critical issue plaguing the ecosystem, and the ar.io team has proved that they are the right team to solve it. Ar.io gateways already boast radical improvements over old infrastructure, and the Kwil team is excited to see how they further improve upon this powerful piece of infrastructure.”
"Being able to rely on having an application served through multiple gateways has been very reassuring. If one centralized provider wants to take down your application, they can. However if anyone can run their own gateway, you can count on being able to serve an application from multiple, which is really cool."
"It's pretty cool to see... this idea of distributing the (Arweave) database itself, across many different ar.io nodes."
"I'm really grateful that ar.io has taken on this monumental task of not only running the existing gateway infra, but keeping it open source and staying true to decentralized, utilitarian values."
"ar.io is a highly anticipated project, and it is expected to become the core basic gateway of the Arweave ecosystem."
"I like the modularity and composability of ar.io network nodes. It significantly lowers hardware requirements and gives the ability for small teams/users to run their own gateways. This will allow horizontal scalability of the network. I hope people come to understand the full power of the ar.io gateways."
