The Swarm mainnet client Bee v1.0 has been officially launched. Along with the mainnet launch, Swarm officially held an online launch event, Swarm One Event, to celebrate this milestone, in which the team introduced the Swarm project from the Bee client, the new Swarm gateway, the development team process, and the ecological development of Swarm. The project was introduced.
Bee v1.0 Launch
The Bee project began on January 17, 2020, and Bee v1.0 is its third iteration, with 109,3101 lines of code, 1,201 code commits, and 36 contributors. Most importantly, Bee exists for anyone who wants to achieve data freedom.
The launch of the main network and the release of Bee v1.0 means that
Bee nodes will interact with a truly functional token, BZZ
Contains all the important features needed for the Swarm network
Provides greater stability for developers and node operators
New Swarm Gateway
The new Swarm Gateway makes it very easy for users to share and access files in the Swarm network.
Click to share.
Drag and drop files and click Upload.
Get the URL of the file and the Swarm Hash.
Go to the file URL and see brief information about the file, such as file size and format, and the option to “Download”.
You can also access it through “Swarm Hash” by clicking on “Access”, copying the file hash into the input box, clicking on “Find”, and then you can view the file information or download the file.
The whole process is also available for mobile.
Current projects include: Bee-js, Swarm-cli, Bee-dashboard, Swarm browser extensions and Swarm gateway.
Bee-js provides basic Bee features including: blocks, raw data, files, lists, PSS, tags, pinning, checkbook, private key handling, single owner blocks, feeds, debugging API, etc.
Bee-dashboard: Management interface used by Bee node operators to check the operational status of their Bee nodes, upload or download files, manage postmarks, access and cash BZZ checks, settings, etc.
The team is also conducting exhaustive research and working hard to complete the development of the Swarm browser extension.
Swarm cannot exist alone, it needs users and applications that use the Swarm network together to form its ecosystem. Individuals’ private data should be in their own hands and data sovereignty is the key to the Swarm network. In addition, data should be seamlessly transferred between applications for users, which is easier to achieve for decentralized storage.
About data sovereignty and data interoperability
For example, some familiar companies are trying to get hold of users’ underwear sizes to sell more products, which is conceivably a very distorted form of data acquisition.
To change this situation, we need to start by reversing the situation that “user data only benefits these companies”. Data in the market should benefit all parties involved, not only users and advertisers, but also the market itself, and to achieve this, we must return data sovereignty to users, thus evolving web 2.0 to web 3.0.
Many people do not care about this, which is regrettable, because there is a lot of value in data. More people need to be aware of the value their data has.
Swarm network use cases
VIZYON: Using the Swarm Network to ensure the security of patients’ private information.
FairMaps: Using the Swarm Network to create and share users’ own map data.
Fairdrop: Using the Swarm Network to decentralize users’ files.
Fairdrive: Use the Swarm network to achieve data freedom based on decentralized storage.
MemeZZZ: Using the Swarm network to allow users to create and store meme (stalk map).
PASTEBEE : Uses the Swarm network to allow users to freely share content.
Waggle : A private and secure communication protocol based on the Swarm network for spam-free communication.
Etherna : Enables web video upload, sharing and playback based on the Swarm network.
Swarm officials will continue to help the ecosystem grow by hosting monthly Swarm workshops for startups, independent studios, research projects and NGOs starting this summer, and opening a Swarm Summer School in August. In addition, Swarm will open its startup gas pedal HONEYCOMB in September to help startups and data providers grow.
Swarm officials hope that more users and dApps will use the Swarm network and work together to build a data self-sovereign society.
