“The Internet computer is a public infrastructure on which to run the next generation of software and services,” explains Dfinity founder Dominic Williams in a statement. He is convinced that companies can reduce costs with Dfinity in the long term.

A first version of Dfinity is expected to go live by the end of the year. However, the expansion of the infrastructure will take years.
