Which is the best application landing in the distributed storage track?

With the advent of the information age, information has shown an explosive growth, while information data has become one of the resources with important value, and the security of information storage has become more and more important.


With the advent of the information age, information has exploded and information data has become one of the most valuable resources, and the security of information storage has become more and more important. Today, most of the global information storage market is mainly controlled by Amazon, Google, Facebook, Apple and Microsoft, which are the giants in the traditional storage market. However, in the traditional storage market, personal information leakage often occurs, and the costly and insufficient security of data storage makes users start to look at the decentralized distributed storage track which is steadily developing.

I. Decentralized distributed storage development status and project introduction

1-1 The current situation of decentralized distributed storage development

In today’s smart era, there is a large market space for people’s demand for data storage. Most of today’s information is stored in giant organizations such as Amazon, Ali and Google, but centralized storage also has a variety of problems, in addition to expensive rent, the first and foremost problem is information leakage, users’ personal information is often leaked. The decentralized storage track can solve exactly such problems.

Unlike the traditional market, decentralized storage invokes blockchain technology, which is anonymous and tamper-evident, and has strong security for users. Decentralized storage becomes one of the infrastructures for better implementation of distributed technology by reaching fragments of storage files on different disk spaces through distributed storage technology. It is believed that once the decentralized distributed storage project is landed, it will quickly make up for the shortcomings in the centralized storage market.

The decentralized distributed storage track is also an essential infrastructure in the blockchain ecology. Nowadays, many ecologies in the crypto asset industry have not been truly decentralized, and the web front-end of many projects are still hosted in centralized third parties, and the data of the huge Dapp ecology on ethereum has to be stored by centralized facilities. And because of this, decentralized distributed storage is favored by everyone.

Although the fervor of decentralized distributed storage market has been high, few projects have really been implemented, and the operation process is even more complicated and difficult to understand, coupled with the disconnect between Filecoin, the industry “leader”, and IPFS, many people begin to doubt the feasibility of decentralized distributed storage track.

In today’s crypto industry, “landing is king” is gradually replacing “technology is important”, and blockchain projects are speeding up the pace of application landing, especially in the distributed storage track. Is the application of decentralized distributed storage track feasible or not? Let’s take a look. (A table of key points is attached at the end of the article)

1-2 Decentralized distributed storage representative projects

The following are a few representative projects selected from 20 projects, this is a brief introduction, see section 2 for specific application cases.

1-2-1 Crust

Crust is an application-based public chain that incentivizes decentralized cloud services and also implements incentive layer protocols for decentralized storage, adapts multiple storage layer protocols including IPFS, and provides support for the application layer. the main application scenarios of Crust are: decentralized website and Dapp deployment, peer-to-peer content distribution network, and off-chain data storage to solve the pain points of NFT.

Crust has done a good job in publishing information with high transparency and can easily find the supporting data for application landing cases, and now Crust even achieves immediate storage and retrieval. Of course, as a “Filecoin” in the polka ecology, the development of the polka ecology also has a certain influence on Crust, in the polka ecology, Crust has reached cooperation with many projects, I believe that after the maturity of the parallel chain and cross-chain information protocol, Crust will be more smooth in the implementation of storage in the polka ecology. It is believed that after the maturity of parallel chain and cross-chain information protocols, Crust’s storage implementation in polka ecology will be more smooth. In addition to Polka ecosystem, Crust has also reached cooperation with many famous blockchain projects such as Uniswap, Sushiswap, Compound, MakerDAO, Chainlink, etc. Meanwhile, there are also many projects in traditional storage applications.

1-2-2 Filecoin

Filecoin is a peer-to-peer network for storing files with built-in economic incentives to ensure safe and secure storage of files, Filecoin is built on top of IPFS to create a distributed storage marketplace for long-term storage. filecoin is running on the incentive layer of IPFS and creates a decentralized storage based on the IPFS underlying protocol network, turning the cloud storage market into an algorithmic market, which itself has great advantages, but now Filecoin mining, encapsulated basically useless data, is still short of the emergence of a high TPS public chain for real land use.

Filecoin’s ecological development process is considered relatively long, although there are already application cases, but currently not with Crust to do the same instant storage, so Filecoin’s application ecology still has a long way to go.

1-2-3 DxChain

DxChain is a computation-centric distributed big data storage and computation network, and as a public chain, DxChain aims to design a platform that can solve the problem of big data computation in a decentralized environment. DxChain is designed to provide data owners with distributed big data storage with security and privacy protection, and to enable value mining and commercial exchange of big data by running machine learning algorithms.

The project is relatively low-profile, but in serious technology and ecology, the strength should not be underestimated. The community consensus is also very good, DxChain not only has its own App, ecological cooperation is also slowly moving towards the project’s initial goal, the potential is still good.

1-2-4 Arweave

According to the official website, Arweave is a shared hard drive that never loses data, allowing valuable information, applications and history to be remembered and saved indefinitely. By saving history, it prevents others from rewriting it. The Arweave protocol is currently used to create applications in a variety of categories including content distribution platforms, social platforms, file storage solutions and more, with over 250 applications. Permanently stored data is more expensive to consume.

Arweave differs from Filecoin in that Filecoin is dedicated to serving the stored data of large enterprises, while Arweave believes that 95% of the data in the current network will be lost in 20 years, so it is dedicated to permanent storage with a wider range of users. more and more applications are appearing on the Arweave chain and a near complete ecology is starting to show. However, it should be considered a waste of resources not to select all data for permanent storage, so what kind of scenario is worth to go for permanent storage is a question Arweave should need to consider.

1-2-5 Storj

Storj landed early in the storage category. Storj is not like a blockchain application system, but more like a traditional commercial company’s approach, so Storj is benchmarked against Amazon S3, currently the largest storage service provider. The main difference between Storj and S3 is that the physical layer of Storj’s stored data is not on its own computer, but through incentives to introduce miners to participate, contribute idle hard drives and bandwidth, and get Storj Token rewards.

With the help of a series of means such as SLAs (Service Level Agreements) and the growth of the miner node network, Storj is currently performing well in terms of stability and availability, providing a way to be used by commercial grade applications on the ground. Users can purchase storage space services through a transaction marketplace created by Storj Labs that supports both Storj Token and bank card payment methods, and the transaction marketplace provides an S3-compatible data interface for easy access by developers. Users who pay with bank cards do not need to buy back Storj Token from the marketplace yet, as the Storj Token sent to miners will come from the Token portion held by the team itself. Overall, Storj holds a big advantage in terms of prospects for commercial-grade application landing.

1-2-6 Sia

Sia is the first distributed storage project. Currently Sia supports the storage of video streaming files. To share video works, today’s centralized storage solutions are Baidu.com, mega, rayfile, etc. often due to regulation, resources are blocked. And decentralized solutions BT, eDonkey non-popular resources will also have no resources to download. sia seems to be just the right solution to this problem, the resources will not go offline after payment, and encryption is not easy for others to crack, and the download speed is predicted to be better.

1-2-7 Chia

Chia, the so-called “green bitcoin”, has recently become very popular, as it is traditionally stored on hard disks, but Chia uses unused hard disk space that people think can be used as storage for mining, i.e. hard disk mining. PoC is an upgraded version of the PoW consensus mechanism, which makes the whole system faster through an algorithm that retrieves data after it has been pre-generated.

Because of Chia’s hard drive mining method, it is often considered a distributed storage project, but it aims to be a global universal digital asset, the role of hard drives is not the same as other projects. chia drove the hard drive mining fire before it went on the 4th of May, and was even named by CCTV due to the hard drive supply, which shows the power of the consensus degree, but currently Chia has no applications on the ground, and plans The future to do payments and wallets, etc.

1-2-8 Swarm

Swarm, as an official part of the Ether project, is mainly led and developed by the Ether Foundation, allowing mining pools to store, bandwidth and arithmetic resources to support applications based on the Ether network. From the beginning, it has been considered one of the three pillars defining the Web 3.0 component, along with Ether and Whisper. swarm’s long-term vision is to become the operating system for a redistributed Internet. It will provide a scalable and self-sustaining infrastructure for the supply chain economics of data.

II. Application Case Show of Decentralized Distributed Storage Project

2-1 Crust partial case show

2-1-1 Crust provides automated IPFS Pin/Host service for Uniswap, an Ethernet De-Fi giant

(1) What is Uniswap

Uniswap is the leading DeFi project on Ether, pioneering the AMM (Automated Market Maker) model and reaching a weekly trading volume of $10 billion since its operation. Uniswap is not only different from traditional crypto asset trading platforms, but also different from ordinary decentralized Token trading platforms.

(2) Uniswap’s hosting problem

When users use Uniswap, they need to access Uniswap’s DAPP interface (a JS-based user interface displayed in the web browser) through the web browser, and this DAPP interface needs to be hosted by a centralized organization, as shown in the following figure: users need to access app.uniswap.org to use Uniswap, which is essentially a user downloads the front-end code for the Uniswap trading platform functionality and executes it in their own browser.

Which is the best application landing in the distributed storage track?

Image source: Uniswap website

(3) How does Crust solve the problem of “centralized dependency” caused by Uniswap’s hosting link?

Uniswap hosts its front-end code on the IPFS network, so that when users use the front-end interface, they actually get the front-end code from the nearest IPFS node, making the whole hosting process distributed and decentralized, and not manipulated by an intermediary organization. In particular, Crust created an automated Workflow for Uniswap to implement IPFS Pin in the form of a GitHub Action, which was integrated by Uniswap into its release workflow.

The basic role of IPFS Pin Action: Whenever Uniswap releases a new front-end version, Action will automatically Pin the new version to the IPFS network and store the order under the Crust DSM (decentralized marketplace), which will eventually have over 100 IPFS/Crust nodes around the world to save the front-end code. Uniswap users get the content of the code from the IPFS/Crust nodes close to them when they use it. Crust’s services for Uniswap can also be standardized by building GitHub APPs that can be replicated in other web or DAPP hosted workflows.

2-1-2 Decoo, a Crust eco-project, helps Cow Express to build a “distributed cloud” version of the Express product

(1) What is Cowtran

Cowtransfer.com is a product that provides easy file transfer and short-term storage service. It can upload and download files without logging in and the speed of upload and download is never limited. It has 3T large capacity internet disk space and can support large file transfer up to 20GB. At present, Cow Express has 40 million+ users worldwide.

(2) What is Decoo

In the field of distributed storage, without a series of infrastructure, middleware and instrumental support, users cannot directly use such protocols as IPFS and Crust, and the role of Decoo is to fill the gap in the middle in terms of technology and products. Decoo and Crust Network are both DCF (Decentralized Cloud Foundation) incubation projects, where Crust Network is a blockchain incentive layer protocol for distributed cloud storage, and Decoo, which is a Crust ecological partner, provides services and technical solutions based on the protocol layer. Through the close combination of these two technologies, Decoo builds a distributed cloud storage service that is more reliable, more secure, more efficient, lower cost, and lower threshold of use.

(3) The feasibility of Decoo’s solution to support storage applications exists at the economic level

Cow Express is essentially a web application for C-user, which needs to establish a storage server system and ensure long-term uninterrupted availability. However, Cow Express does not maintain a large number of physical servers to address user file storage, but uses cloud storage services from cloud vendors. Because of this reason, Cow Express intends to create a “distributed cloud” based version of Cow Express with Decoo.

In the demo version, Decoo provides a Pin API to Cows Express that can be called via HTTP, so that users can upload files directly in the web application portal and transfer them to Decoo’s IPFS node via HTTP (users cannot upload files directly to the IPFS network if they do not have an IPFS node). In the background, these files will also be ordered at Crust DSM and get a sufficient number of backups. And in the whole process, the set of services provided based on Decoo reduces the cost to about 20% of the traditional cloud services, so it proves the feasibility of Decoo’s solution to support storage applications at the economic level.

(4) How is the “distributed cloud version of fast transfer” used?

The product of Decoo and Cow Express is under development, so we can only experience how to use “distributed cloud version of Express Transfer” through a “small device” on Decoo.io on the home page of Decoo website. The “Add File” on the home page in the picture below allows users to upload local files to IPFS.

Which is the best application landing in the distributed storage track?

Image source: Cow Express website

As shown in the figure below, after selecting an image to upload, Decoo returns a file CID to the user, which is a unique identifier obtained by hashing the file contents in the IPFS network and verifies the correspondence between the CID and the file data itself. For a file, the CID is a permanent and unchanging identifier. Finally, by clicking on the CID, the user can browse the file information or download the file, or access the file through Decoo’s IPFS public gateway, ipfs.decoo.io.

2-1-3 Crust provides data off-chain storage solution for NFT project

(1) Pain points of NFT

The application of NFT involves the need to store a large amount of content (pictures, videos, etc.). Although NFT Token can be implemented through the Ethernet ECR-721 and ERC-1155 protocols, the asset information carried by NFT Token is not necessarily stored on the blockchain and associated with NFT. The current storage solution is to store them on a traditional centralized server, but this is a relative security risk. If the server goes down or fails, or if the server stops operating, NFT images, videos and other content with value will be lost, which will cause huge losses for NFT holders.

(2) How to solve the pain point?

Crust provides an easy API tool for NFT creators or administrators, enabling users to upload the digital artwork they host to IPFS for preservation when they create an NFT, while recording the resulting CID (unique identifier of the file in the IPFS network) in the NFT Token information. Through the IPFS Pin service, the digital artwork will be stored on the IPFS network in several backups (around 100 copies) and the contents of the digital artwork can be accessed anywhere in the world through the CID. Since the Crust eco-project Decoo also provides a public IPFS Gateway, users can manage digital artwork content directly through the Gateway provided by Decoo (or by using the Gateway-related API).

In short, the best solution is still to solve the problem of safe preservation and accessibility of digital artworks on the Internet through IPFS+Crust, which not only ensures the security and continuity of NFT data, but also has lower cost compared with centralized servers and the servers never go down.

2-1-4 Crust eco-project Socbay

Socbay tries to create a decentralized storage video browsing website, where all its video files are stored on IPFS via Crust for free browsing and viewing. It is currently in the final stages of testing and features are being opened up gradually.

2-2-1 Arbol

Arbol is a software platform that cost-effectively connects end-users to innovative climate risk management solutions. arbol combines big data, machine learning and smart contract technologies to revolutionize the traditional way of hedging climate risk, making automated and fast claims for end-users to recover the financial losses caused by climate disasters.

To build the data index for processing contracts, the Arbol team assembled and standardized billions of data files that include decades of weather information all stored on IPFS. IPFS is critical to Arbol’s service model because its content addressing architecture provides inherent verifiability and a decentralized data delivery model that helps Arbol to consolidate, synchronize, and distribute large amounts of data on a daily basis.

2-2-2 Audius

Audius is a blockchain-based, multi-centric music sharing platform that aims to remove the middle ground and extra costs of music streaming services, allowing artists to directly receive their fair share of revenue for their work. Specifically, users of the platform can pay for Audius Tokens or earn Tokens by watching ads. when a user listens to a song from the music library, the blockchain wallet automatically pays with Tokens for less than a penny. Of this, about 85% of the revenue is earned by the artists themselves, with the remainder going to the song providers and software developers. Some other streaming music providers in the industry today are only able to provide artists with a 70% share of the revenue.

The key for Audius to create a user-owned and operated platform was to have a distributed cloud storage network as the foundation for a system that could route and address large amounts of content in a decentralized manner for their content streaming network. Its use of IPFS as the core decentralized storage component gives everyone the freedom to share, monetize and listen to any audio.

2-2-3 Fleek

Fleek is a decentralized network for hosting, storing and delivering files and developing applications. As the next generation of the Internet, the decentralized network offers huge advances in data autonomy, disaster and censorship resilience, performance and speed, but for those not yet familiar with it, using or building decentralized sites can be time-consuming because the operations are cumbersome and difficult. fleek’s mission is to accelerate the adoption of decentralized sites, making it easier for everyone, from dedicated developers to everyday Internet users, can more easily create applications and store files in a decentralized model.

Fleek’s portfolio of products and services is largely built on IPFS, Textile and Filecoin, and with Fleek Edge deploys an infrastructure that combines the distributed peer-to-peer data sharing protocol of IPFS with edge computing to create an exceptionally fast and reliable distributed network of solutions. On Fleek Edge, data and information is processed and stored geographically close to where users request it, reducing latency for real-time data applications and increasing the performance and speed of peer-to-peer interactions. fleek creates a streamlined workflow for anyone looking to host, share or build content on a distributed network. fleek provides its own public IPFS gateway, which means developers don’t have to build their own services to serve their users. With Fleek, anyone can use IPFS to join the decentralized network.

2-3 DxChain Partial Case Study

2-3-1 Camel Rebate Mall

(1) What is Camel Rebate Mall?

The “Camel Rebate Mall” is an app created by DxChain, which cooperates with Taobao, Jingdong, and Jindo, and you can get DxChain’s Token Dx for shopping at Taobao through the “Camel Rebate Mall”. However, there is no technology to connect the Dx points obtained through rebates to the trading platform.

(2) CamelRebate Mall Review

CamelRebate Mall App is not much different from the usual apps, there are Taobao, Jingdong and Jindo options on the page for users to choose, both in terms of usage and page design are very much in line with the current user habits. But the price of the things inside compared to Jingdong and Taobao, there will be the starting price is expensive.

(3) Camel Rebate Mall App data display

At present, the App version has been updated to 2.0.8, which can be downloaded in Tencent App Store, with 1 million downloads and a rating of 5.0.

2-3-2 Cooperation between DxChain and SWFT Blockchain

(1) What is SWFT Blockchain

SWFT Blockchain is a DEX/CEX on/off-chain aggregated flash exchange platform, established in 2017, has supported more than 200 coins, more than 30 public chains, and is a world-renowned simple cross-chain flash exchange platform. It also provides back-end flashing services through API for nearly 30 head wallets such as Firecoin Wallet, Wheat Wallet, Token Pocket, Ellipal, SwapZone, Hoo Wallet and DEX flashing platform.

(2) Advantages of DxChain’s cooperation with SWFT Blockchain

DxChain will open DX flash, red packet, payment and transfer functions after landing on SWFT Blockchain platform, so that DxChain will add nearly 200+ transaction pairs and can exchange with more than 300 coins two by two. In addition, it will be possible to forward DX red packets to any media platform such as WeChat, Circle of Friends, Telegraph, Twitter, etc., and even use DX to receive payments, enabling the concept of DX distributed commerce to be applied in practice.

2-4 Arweave Partial Case Show

2-4-1 Mirror.xyz

(1) What is Mirror.xyz?

Mirror.xyz is a content distribution product that builds an economic model of ownership that combines DAO, Web3, and NFT to provide a crowdfunding toolset for content creators to solve the problem of low profitability for creators and the inability to realize the value of their content, and the opportunity for early investors to earn future revenue from the content.

(2) How to use Arweave

With Arweave, Mirror enables permanent storage of data, including content posted by creators and all associated changes, and all information needed to verify the authenticity of the author’s identity. arweave not only provides permanent data storage, but also requires only one payment at the time of the first upload.

2-4-2 Permanent Archives

The Permanent Archives is dedicated to capturing important political and historical information from Arweave’s permanent network. The first dataset, stored in January 2021, is about the U.S. Capitol riots that took place on January 6, 2021, and contains 12GB of images, videos, and streams from the Twitter, Facebook, and Twitch platforms. The content can be accessed by going to app.ardrive.io and attaching the following drive ID “afa4f6e1-2401-46e1-ae2e-0d84926394e9”.

2-4-3 Decent.

(1) What is Decent.

Land is a new social network platform that is currently under development. Users can join the network by signing up for a waiting list, and it is based on the Arweave permanent network, which allows permanent storage of information.

(2) Decent.Land case

Land has recently permanently stored the historical event of Tesla investing $1.5 billion in Bitcoin. on February 22nd, decent.land released the decentland-js API, allowing users to call the API to interact with the DecentLand protocol. Since all applications in the Arweave network are open protocols, any permanent application in that network can access decent.land and grow decent.land’s users. Through the benefit sharing community model, there will be revenue for the protocol developers from the integration generated in it.

2-5 Storj Partial Case Study

2-5-1 Genaro Network

2-5-2 zkSync

(1) What is zkSync?

zkSync is a scaling and privacy engine for Ether, and its current scope of functionality includes low-cost trading of Ether (ETH) and ERC20Token in the Ether network. zkSync is built on the ZK aggregation architecture, and ZK Rollup is an L2 scaling solution in which all funds are held by smart contracts on the main chain, while computation and storage are performed off-chain. The decentralized storage project Storj has entered into a partnership with zkSync. operators of storage nodes in the Storj network can receive user payments through the Layer 2 scaling solution zkSync.

(2) Data presentation

After data comparison, storing and downloading 1 TB of data costs only $55 with Tardigrade developed by Storj Labs, while Amazon S3, Google Cloud, and Azure cost $108, $146, and $105, respectively. And Storj now supports payments via zkSync, where funds are held by smart contracts on Ether, calculations and storage are performed off-chain, and transactions are not individually verified but aggregated together for batch processing, thereby increasing TPS and reducing transaction fees.

By February of this year, the Storj network was running on 11,000 storage node operators in 84 countries, with over 160,000 transactions processed by Storj satellites.

2-6 Sia Case Study

Sia as a meta is developing more slowly, but it is also a project that has landed. You can go to the official download client and buy SCToken to try using blockchain cloud storage. In addition, to use Sia to store files, you need to download the wallets supported by Sia, which are currently available for Linux, Mac and PC desktop wallets.

Overall, Sia as the pioneer of the distributed storage track, the late is obviously the trend of lack of momentum, the progress of the project is relatively slow, and there is no late out of the project technical advantages, although the number of Twitter fans above 100,000, but the number of fans show a slight downward trend.

2-7 Chia project showcase

2-7-1 Traditional PoW Consensus Mechanism and Chia’s PoC Consensus Mechanism

PoW is called proof of work, adhering to the principle of more work, more pay, and work-based distribution, with high decentralization and high security. However, its transaction efficiency is low, the mining process also consumes a lot of energy, and nowadays the mining pools hold most of the arithmetic power, still showing the characteristics of centralization, Sia, Storj, Arweave for PoW consensus mechanism, Filecoin, although it is PoSt time and space proof consensus mechanism, but it also has PoW shadow in the early stage. chia’s POC capacity proof determines Farmers’ farming revenue key data does not depend on the computer’s mathematical calculation, but on the storage space. Chia farmers’ farming revenue is related to the storage space and storage volume, if farmers have ten times the indoor space, they can get ten times the farming reward.

2-7-2 Advantages of Chia’s PoC consensus mechanism

From the development history of mining, the continuous development of traditional POW proof-of-work mechanism will definitely lead to the emergence of ASIC miners (miners using ASIC chips as the core of arithmetic power), thus causing the waste of resources and environmental pollution. In this way, the advantages of Chia’s PoC consensus algorithm come to the fore.

(1) The threshold of mining is low and the audience is wide

Chia’s hard drive mining has no requirements for graphics cards, is simple to configure, and with the low price and stable supply of hard drives, everyone has the opportunity to participate.

(2) Beneficial to the development of Chia’s ecology

Traditional POW miners have a large proportion of the cost of electricity, so more or less miners will have to smash the disk because they can’t afford to pay the electricity bill. Chia’s electricity costs are extremely low, with an average power consumption of 8~14W, which gives miners the ability to hoard coins, effectively avoiding a large number of early miners from crashing the disk, and the PoC consensus mechanism is in line with the “carbon neutral” policy.

So even though Chia’s hard drive is not used to store data, its PoC consensus mechanism is worth learning from projects in the distributed storage track, especially in the Chinese environment, where the PoC consensus mechanism will have great potential for future development.

2-8 Swarm project demonstration

Swarm, as a distributed storage protocol, has some similarities with IPFS. Both provide a comprehensive solution for an efficient decentralized storage layer for the future of the next-generation Internet, with similar goals and technologies, so it is inevitable to make comparisons. Here we do not compare other factors, just from the application implementation level, the progress of Filecoin project application implementation is slow, while Swarm has a natural advantage, it can be said that Filecoin is just starting now and has not yet formed the ecology, while Swarm has the existing ecological system of Ethernet, so Swarm can quickly land with the existing ecology of Ethernet.

III. Summary

Crust is currently dedicated to solving three hierarchical and modular problems, which can be distilled into three keywords: reporting, packaging and service. Arweave is dedicated to providing permanent storage of data, Storj aims to provide a way to be used by commercial-grade applications on the ground, Sia has laid a certain foundation for the development of the whole distributed storage track, and the late emergence of Chia and Swarm is worth looking forward to.

Most of the distributed storage track project parties are deeply involved in the market and technology of application implementation, steadily promoting the implementation of applications. We believe that in the near future we will witness the application era belonging to the distributed storage track.
