New primary storage for Ignite

Prometeus Labs is proud to announce that Arweave will be used as primary decentralized storage for Ignite. We will be closely cooperating with the Arweave team in order to ensure the maximum level of decentralization, user experience, and comfort.

What is Ignite?

Ignite is a nonprofit decentralized microblogging service built on Prometeus protocol. It allows everyone to share their mind freely via texts and media files. Technically, Ignite represents a set of independent and equitable nodes.

Ignite’s mission is to fight censorship and stand for freedom of speech. Due to its architecture, Ignite won’t be governed by anyone and could not be blocked by any form of barrier or firewall.

More about Ignite.

Why did we choose Arweave?

Arweave team follows the same ideas of decentralization and censorship-free world as we do. Generally, we have a lot of things in common, which make our cooperation particularly pleasant.

From the technical standpoint, arweave provides us a possibility to store Ignite data forever, without any additional expenses. Basically, we have to only pay once for data storage, which solves a scalability issue of Ignite.

Another thing is that arweave is not limiting the data unit size, unlike other decentralized storages. Which allows us to optimize storage expanses. For example, in other storages, we have to pay for the full data unit, no matter how much data Ignite users generated for the last 5 minutes.

According to our initial calculations, Ignite will be generating over 100 000 monthly transactions on the Arweave network. Of Course, this number can change, depending on the network status.

The First Ignite node has been already deployed on Arweave and can be found here. Additional nodes will be deployed and announced on the 8th of July together with our public beta launch.

About Arweave

Arweave is a new type of storage that backs data with sustainable and perpetual endowments, allowing users and developers to truly store data forever — for the very first time.

As a collectively owned hard drive that never forgets, Arweave allows us to remember and preserve valuable information, apps, and history indefinitely. By preserving history, it prevents others from rewriting it.

About Prometeus Protocol

Prometeus is a secure and decentralized protocol that allows fully trustless and anonymous data exchange and storage. Prometeus is layer two, so it can be implemented by the majority of existing blockchains.

Our primary goal is to utilize the public blockchain to achieve a decentralized, trustless, and censorship-resistant framework for exchange/share data across various fields and implementations. Our current implementations include data trading/sharing marketplace and firewall resistant social media solutions.
