Technical Progress

Crust Network

- Update EvmStorage smart contracts on Blast testnet

Crust EVM Storage has expanded its horizons by integrating with the Blast Testnet:

PriceOracle Proxy:

PriceOracle Implementation:

StorageOrderCompatible Proxy:

StorageOrderCompatible Implementation:

- Fix EvmStorage page on Crust Network homepage

- Crust order monitoring tools base on file sizes and upload gateway


- Upgrade devnet from validium to ZK rollup

EthDA itself is an Ethereum ZK rollup powered by Polygon CDK, and derives security from Ethereum consensus.

- Economics and value aggregation design

L2s that using EthDA as Alt-DA could reward part of their DA fees to their users via EthDA’s benefit sharing protocols.

  • L2 user stakes $L2 token (L2’s DAO token) to EthDA’s Benefit Sharing Contract on L1
  • L2 chain uses EthDA as Alt-DA, and spend $ETH as gas fee and Blob storage fee
  • EthDA accrues $ETH income for every L2 chain
  • $ETH income from each L2 chain is periodically pooled into Benefit Sharing Contract for their staking users
  • L2 user periodically claims $ETH rewards from Benefit Sharing Contract

- Technical design of DA subnet
