The basis for any initiative

Safe storage: Crust Network

Centralization issue

As modern technologies improve, the task of storing and processing information becomes key for the development of any project.

The Crust development team implements an ecosystem of independent repositories and related services in progressive ways. The Crust decentralized platform has tangible benefits, allowing you to achieve various goals more efficiently than centralized solutions.

Distributed storage on the blockchain provides for the rational use of financial resources, as data volumes grow exponentially (according to IDC forecasts, the cumulative increase in data is 61% per year, by 2025 the total amount of information will reach 175 zettabytes), this approach is very relevant.

Decentralized data storage platforms do not have a common subject endowed with special rights and powers — this excludes manipulation of the system, greatly increases fault tolerance and protection from external attacks (the array of information is distributed among many nodes, multiple duplications are performed).

Also of note is the high availability of independent storage systems, any user can participate as a service provider and as a consumer. There are no legal or sanctioning prohibitions, the platform is implemented as publicly available. The blockchain algorithm provides a clear structure, each block remains stable, so the information remains unchanged: significant computing power is required for attackers to influence the Crust infrastructure.

Unlike centralized services, Crust’s distributed storage system guarantees the confidentiality of data and the anonymity of its owner (no identification is required, generally accepted payment details are not used).

Practical use

All solutions of the Crust Network are designed for specific realization in the form of ready-made products, and active implementation in the global infrastructure is envisaged.

The popular decentralized exchange Uniswap and Crust performed system integration in March 2021 — website and Dapp interface use distributed deployment, and the Uniswap platform can be accessed from several independent sources. Crust Network nodes distribute applications using the progressive peer-to-peer communication protocol IPFS, this approach ensures the stability and reliability of the service, improves security parameters.

Crust technologies have been successfully used to store and transfer digital art and collectibles such as NFT. Owners of expensive unique tokens need an infrastructure that guarantees the safety and availability of assets, implements clear interaction with trading platforms, and confirms ownership. The multifunctional service SwitchSwap developed by Crust allows you to create, exchange, sell NFT to users on various blockchains (Polygon, Ethereum, Polkadot).

Crust-Files application was created for convenient placement of various information, effective provision of data to an unlimited number of participants in any projects. Each file has many copies, which eliminates the loss, end-to-end encryption will ensure confidentiality and inaccessibility for strangers. You can interact with the application using various wallets and accounts (Crust, Metamsk, Solana, Moonriver, Flow, etc), which increases audience reach and facilitates user access.

Foundation for the Metaverse

The Crust ecosystem can act as the underlying infrastructure for deploying large-scale virtual spaces such as Metaverses.

Decentralized storages built on the progressive IPFS protocol provide ample opportunities for the successful functioning of complex parallel realities.

The speed of work, reliability of connection, immutability of information make Crust tools in demand in the implementation of spaces with many objects and high detail.

The placement of a full-fledged metaverse assumes only independent decentralized solutions that can provide a trusted environment for users (no control, manipulative influences, dominant subjects).

The distributed storage system symbolizes the creation of an equal platform, reduces the financial risks of participants, which attracts a large number of people.

Features of the Crust ecosystem

The priority task of the Crust project is to implement a secure and reliable network of high-performance storage facilities that will be available to all interested parties.

This is why the developers use IPFS (InterPlanetary File System), an open source, peer-to-peer hypermedia communication protocol. The effectiveness of such a block storage model is ensured by the equal participation of each node in the network, the system has no points of failure, subjects can work in an independent untrusted environment.

Blockchain technology is a decentralized data management tool that guarantees the immutability of information. The combination of blockchain and IPFS shows excellent interaction results — the data is protected from changes and is unique. Due to the similarity in the structure, IPFS can act as a “bridge” for connecting different blockchains.

Protecting the interests of all Crust members is a key aspect that will help create a strong cohesive community, common goals and an understandable mechanism of interaction form resilience in a dynamic IT environment. Conditions have been created for generating income at all levels of the ecosystem, everyone can use their own resources for collective and individual benefit.
