Ethereum Push Notification Service is live on Ethereum’s mainnet.
EPNS can now be accessed through app.epns.io on the Ethereum blockchain. The protocol can be used by two broad audiences: channels and subscribers.
Channels are dapps, users, and businesses that want to send notifications to others. These notifications can be sent manually, or they can be built to respond automatically to on-chain or off-chain information. For example, a media company can push out alerts for breaking news when a story is released. Or, a DeFi project can allow users to automatically receive notifications when their loans are closing in on liquidation.
How to get started as a channel? Head to app.epns.io and ‘Create Your Channel’. Follow the guided steps to set up your channel, create notifications, and publish your channel to mainnet. Then, watch the subscribers roll in. If you need support, head to How to EPNS for more information.
Subscribers are those who wish to receive notifications from others. Subscribers can browse the live channels on EPNS through the app, and opt-in to receive notifications from any of them. Notifications are then delivered to the subscriber’s ‘inbox’. Channels are live now on the EPNS app (iOS/Andriod), with more channels to be launched in the days and weeks to come.
How to get started as a subscriber? Head to app.epns.io and click on ‘Channels’. You can browse the list of all published channels, each with a description of which notification(s) you’ll receive if you subscribe. You may opt-in to receive notifications from any of them, and opt-out at any time.
Ethereum Push Notification Service (EPNS) is a decentralized notification protocol that enables users (wallet addresses) to receive notifications and earn! Using the protocol, any dApp, service or smart contract can send notifications to wallet addresses.
