About Blockchains

What is Crust?


Crust is a decentralized storage network built on Polkadot, a multi-chain blockchain platform. It aims to provide a decentralized storage solution that is secure, reliable, and cost-effective. Crust allows users to store and retrieve data in a web3 manner, leveraging the power of blockchain technology to ensure data integrity and availability. Crust uses a combination of blockchain and decentralized storage technologies to achieve its goals. It offers incentives for users to contribute their storage space to the network, creating a distributed storage infrastructure that is resistant to censorship and single points of failure.

What is Polkadot?


Polkadot stands out among other blockchain projects for its focus on enhancing the foundational infrastructure of dApps. It aims to enable interoperability between blockchain ecosystems, facilitating seamless communication without intermediaries. Functioning as a "network of networks," Polkadot utilizes parachains — specialized blockchains with unique functionalities and tokens — to enable interaction between diverse blockchain architectures. Powered by the nominated proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus algorithm and drawing inspiration from the Ouroboros protocol, Polkadot offers a robust framework for building interconnected and scalable decentralized systems.
