Crust Network is excited to announce that our storage product, Crust Cloud, now supports the Optimism ecosystem! This integration enhances our close ties with Optimism and underscores our commitment to decentralized storage solutions. Crust Cloud revolutionizes data storage in the Web3 space by treating each storage unit as a non-fungible token (NFT), making ownership straightforward and secure.

Optimism, a cutting-edge L2 blockchain developed by Ethereum experts, offers efficient scaling and compatibility with Ethereum applications at reduced costs. In August 2023, our decentralized personal storage product, Crust Files, began supporting OP Mainnet. This integration marks Crust’s smooth entry into the OP ecosystem and includes a feature on the OP ecosystem page.

Crust Cloud is designed to cater to all developers and users within the OP ecosystem, providing seamless access to decentralized storage resources through blockchain wallets like Metamask.

Crust Cloud utilizes our extensive network, with over 1350 nodes and 550PB of storage capacity, to offer diverse services and storage options. The launch of Crust Cloud introduces W3Buckets (Web3 storage buckets) and W3Gateways, merging these concepts into a solution that enhances the decentralized storage experience.

Users can easily create their own storage NFTs on OP mainnet by connecting their wallets and selecting the desired storage space and NFT style.

Data is permanently stored in these NFT buckets and can be sold or gifted through transfers, offering a smooth decentralized storage experience to all users in the Optimism ecosystem.

Welcome to Crust Cloud with your OP wallet! We’re excited to offer a limited-time deal on small storage spaces — get 1GB of personal storage NFT for less than 1 USD.

Join us and take advantage of periodic snapshots and rewards for users who participate in testing and minting. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to enhance your storage capabilities!
