What is Crust Network?

Crust Network is a decentralized storage network and cloud solution built on Polkadot's Substrate framework. It provides an incentive layer for the IPFS protocol and utilizes blockchain technology to enhance security, privacy, performance and ownership of data. The mainnet launched on the 1st of September 2021 and currently holds a storage capacity of around 2,300 PetaBytes provided by more than 7,000 individual nodes. Crust Network is integrated with many blockchains and provides a fully decentralized storage layer for Ethereum, BSC, Polygon, Solana, Near, Elrond, Heco and others. It is also used by some of the biggest blockchain projects, such as Uniswap, AAVE and Polkadot Apps, to store their data or host their websites and dApps. Crust Network's architecture also has the capability of supporting a decentralized computing layer and building a decentralized cloud ecosystem. It provides the technical infrastructure for the Metaverse, enables users to mint, store and exchange NFTs, host websites, dApps, video streaming and more, and offers personal cloud storage, file sharing and streaming services. The CRU token is a utility token within the Crust ecosystem which serves many different utilities, such as staking to maintain GPoS consensus, collateral for storage providers, covering transaction fees, purchasing storage or other cloud services, and an on-chain governance mechanism. Crust Network offers many advantages compared to traditional and centralized storage providers, such as high availability, security, performance and cost savings. Everyone can join the public and permission-less network and start mining Crust with no need for expensive and energy consuming GPUs or high-end CPUs.
