Crust Project Development — Apr. 12— Apr. 18

Crust Community Activities

The Crust Decentralized Storage Market was officially opened on February 28th, 2021 (GMT+8). There are 2,565 nodes in the entire network, with a total storage of 365 PB as of April 12th. The network is currently in a state of lack of tokens.

Maxwell Preview Network Weekly Report:

On April 9th, the first Crust Developer Meetup was successfully held in Shanghai and many Crust community developers and community supporters came to join in. Crust mainly introduced Grants to the developer community, and guided them to participate in Grants to jointly build the Crust developer community.

On April 13th, Dean, the Crust product leader, shared knowledge on Crust technology and blockchain at Cisco Union.

Crust added a “Crust Grants” section to encourage developers to apply for Crust Grants to jointly build a Web3.0 distributed cloud ecosystem. Recently, the details of Crust Grants were announced: Crust Grants provides each recipient with funding of up to 30,000 USD to support them to develop in the sub-fields of the technology stack.

Crust Network is now officially a member of the Teaclave Secure Computing Ecosystem powered by Apache. You can find the introduction of Crust at the Teaclave official website:

As the Crust community and ecosystem continues to grow, Crust is now launching the first phase of the Crust Network Ambassador Program. Welcome all community partners to participate in applying for the ambassadorship in the construction of the Crust community!

Crust published the “Crust Grants Handbook” and welcomes developers to participate. Grants divides the decentralized cloud storage ecosystem into technology stacks at six layers, including chain protocol layer, file systems protocol layer, node strategies layer, development tools and infrastructure layer, blockchain-based applications layer and user-based applications layer, incentivizing projects in the decentralized cloud storage ecosystem at full strength.

As the Polkadot parachain slot auction is approaching, Crust has recently continued to improve its protocols and mechanisms, striving for a better user experience, and making full preparations for the Crust mainnet launch. Please note the nodes that have not been upgraded after 1,197,800 blocks (around April 20th, 2021 12:00 (GMT+8)) will be invalid. To avoid unnecessary losses, please execute the upgrade as soon as possible.

Crust prepared answers to 15 FAQs, including application scenarios, the relationship between Crust and IPFS, the difference between Crust and Filecoin, mainnet launch, and other details.

Restatements: Crust does not sell mining machines, nor cooperate with any mining merchants. Mining equipment must be open and transparent:

Any user can build and maintain a mining machine according to the operation guide, and Crust encourages users to use idle resources to participate in mining.
