Crust technology operation community has now completed the development of the Crust Mainnet! Mainnet is now officially delivered to the DCF (Decentralized Cloud Foundation). The official launch time of the Crust Mainnet is the 217th Era, with a block height of about 765,432 (18:00, September 1st, 2021 UTC+8), and block rewards will be opened at the same time.

Crust has found some common node construction problems.

For those that do not use the system disk and want to use other SSDs to mount, if users don’t follow the official methods to mount, the system will be filled soon after the order system turns on, which will lead to a severe crash. Users can use the “sudo crust tools workload” command to see if the disk is with a small capacity recognized by sworker. If yes, please stop sworker, clear all Crust Node data and reconfigure.

Crust will launch the crowdloan on August 30th and end on October 6th, covering all 5 auction periods. Our goal for the upcoming crowdloan is to reach 80,000 KSM in contributions. Once the bid is successful, each KSM contributed to the crowdloan will receive 1 CRU and 1,000 CSM. The total reward pool is 80,000 CRU + 80 million CSM. 30% of the reward will be released immediately, and 10% will be released for each subsequent lease period.

On August 25th, Crust was invited to participate in a panel discussion of decentralized storage organized by SnapFingers, together with other projects, discussing the future of storage.

On August 27th, Crust was invited to participate in a panel discussion themed of “Kusama slot auction will be opened again, will the Polkadot ecosystem boost?” organized by PolkaBase.

Cointelegraph published a study on Polkadot: The Bedrock of the New Web”, and there was a comprehensive analysis of Crust.
