Looks like decentralized cloud storage, like Crust Files, is continuing to improve in usefulness to a wider range of applications. This is the first Web3 storage application for individual users launched among all decentralized storage projects, and it is free to use!
This was supposed to launch in Q4 of 2020, but recent announcement is for Jan 5. The Crust Network token ( CRU ) was as high as $150 in March 2021, on high volume. More recently it is trading less than $15. It will be interesting to see its price activity in 2022.
CRUST implements the incentive layer protocol for decentralized storage. It is adaptable to multiple storage layer protocols such as IPFS, and provides support for the application layer. Crust’s architecture also has the capability of supporting a decentralized computing layer and building a decentralized cloud ecosystem.
At present, Internet giants such as Amazon, Microsoft, and Google have almost monopolized the global cloud storage market, which not only charges high fees, but also faces the risk of user privacy exposure.Therefore, I have been paying attention to decentralized storage based on blockchain technology. Filecoin, Arweave, Crust Network, etc. are all well-known service provider.Among all of the service providers, I think the most noteworthy one is Crust Network. Not long ago, Crust Network announced in an award-winning event: Crust Files, the world’s first truly usable decentralized cloud storage product, will be officially launched on January 5, 2022. This is definitely exciting news! This is the first Web3 storage application for individual users launched among all decentralized storage projects, and it is free to use!
Crust Files gives users another choice
Centralized cloud storage represented by Dropbox, Google drive, etc. are positioned for work to be carried out more efficiently, and are more inclined to work that require frequently sharing and collaboration scenarios. Their free storage capacity is always very limited. As a decentralized cloud storage, Crust Files is positioned for personal cloud storage needs. Crust Files currently provides users with unlimited storage space, which will greatly satisfy users who desire more storage space.It’s also very easy to use, only one crypto wallet is required to use Crust Files. After connecting to the wallet, you can upload and store files or folders with one click. Crust Files makes the experience of using Web3 products not inferior to Web2 products.
I think that Crust Files was not created to replace centralized cloud storage. On the contrary, it will represent the long-term coexistence of decentralized cloud storage and centralized cloud storage, becoming a new category in the cloud storage industry. Undoubtedly, Crust Files gives users another choice for cloud storage services.
Crust Files make cloud storage more secure
Crust Files is based on the Crust Network’s mainnet and has the advantages of strong privacy protection, low storage costs, data redundancy backup storage, high speed, etc. Crust Network has more than 8,000 nodes and 2000Pb multi-storage capacity, thus is helpful to avoid single point failure and secure The value from transfer of data.
At present, many countries around the world still have censorship, supervision, blockade, and monitoring of the network.Traditional centralized cloud storage still faces the risk of user privacy exposure, besides, a lot of information is not allowed to be stored on them. In addition, the use of centralized cloud storage also faces the security risks of hackers breaking the centralized server. Crust Files uses the Crust Network blockchain encryption technology to meet users’ personal storage needs with decentralized cloud storage, to ensure users’ files and personal information are more securely protected.
Crust Files truly makes decentralized cloud storage available for use
Compared with Filecoin, Crust Files truly realizes the use of decentralized cloud storage, especially for personal cloud storage scenarios. Individual users can use Crust Files as conveniently as using traditional “cloud storage”. This breaks the embarrassing situation that Filecoin can only “mining” but cannot really store personal files.
Crust Files is based on the Polkadot, which is not only practical, but also conducive to the expansion of the decentralized cloud storage ecology. Crust Files has helped BSC, Uniswap, sushiswap, Polka, etc. deploy decentralized cloud storage systems. It has also helped Really and Sinso store NFT metadata. It has also helped Klikli and Socbay store video data, and has been praised by the above partners. In the future, Crust Files will promote more applications within the ecological with greater efforts, and adopt greater reward intensity to encourage more developers.
Crust Files is more open and friendly to users
Compared with Arweave, Crust Files is more user-friendly, efficient and compatible. For example, Crust Files users can not only use Crust Files’ own wallets, but also use any mainstream crypto wallet such as Metamask, polkadot, Polygon, solara, etc., to use the decentralized storage service of Crust Files. In addition, Crust Files is compatible with every application within IPFS protocol. Crust Files users only need to upload the file, and then it can be stored immediately. Users can also share the stored content with friends. The whole process is simple enough and decentralized, and the user’s files are more reliable (the files will be saved by many nodes, not a specific node).
On the other hand, although Arweave also realized decentralize cloud storage, it’s still a self-built system, which is closed and is not compatible with other applications under the IPFS protocol, so it is not open enough compared with Crust Files.
Crust Files, as Web3.0 storage, will accelerate the development of Metaverse
Crust Files provides a Web3.0 decentralized cloud storage network, supports multiple storage protocols including IPFS, and provides interfaces to the application layer. Crust Files aims to build a decentralized and distributed storage system that values data privacy and ownership. It will become the underlying infrastructure of Metaverse in the future, and can provide high-quality storage and retrieval services for users and developers.
The massive assets, data, and privacy and security requirements in Metaverse determine that decentralized cloud storage is the future trend. Thanks to the technical advantages of decentralized cloud storage, Crust Files can maximize the protection of Metaverse users Private storage needs. Crust Files will greatly accelerate the rapid development of Metaverse.
