Oort 2022 Year in Review
2021 was an exciting year for Oort. Positioned as the Web3 data infrastructure, Oort’s mission to create an intuitive, secure, and scalable web3 experience for end-users has been a priority, and we are pleased to report that we started the year with a team of passionate innovators and ended it with an industry-leading decentralized data solution platform, an impressive network of partnerships, and a bright future ahead of us. With more products and a testnet on the way, we have much to celebrate as we look back at our accomplishments in 2022.
New Name, New Chapter.
In 2022, we scaled up from Computecoin to Oort.
Oort is a continuation of Computecoin that operates the same vision: to build the cornerstone of Web3. Our name, Oort, is taken from Oort Cloud, the theoretical edge of our solar system and human civilization. At Oort, we strive to challenge ourselves and others to create new values that push the boundaries of the next age of the internet.
New Products: Oort DSS & Oort DEN
As the first step to help users, businesses, and developers easily and seamlessly transport their data to Web3, Oort launched two flagship products: Oort DSS and Oort DEN.

Oort DSS is an all-inclusive, low-cost, secure decentralized storage with a developer-centric design.
