The State of Decentralized Cloud Storage

In the Web3 ecosystem, top-tier infrastructure is essential for optimal service and application experiences. Yet, existing decentralized solutions fall short.

50 % - 95 %
slower file transfer speeds using a DePIN compared to a centralized solution.
>0.1 %
the revenue of current Cloud storage DePINs compared to AWS’s revenue.
+90 %
of all Web3 companies use centralized Cloud storage solutions.

Web3 solutions can’t meet the demands of web3 and blockchain applications.

Today, Web3’s reliance on centralized solutions isn’t a preference but rather a lack of better options.

As the infrastructure needs of Web3 projects evolve beyond the limiting offerings of centralized solutions and concerns over data privacy, governance, and sovereignty grow, there's an increasing need for decentralized alternatives that offer enhanced control and security. 

However, existing Web3 Cloud storage solutions struggle to gain traction due to 3 key issues:

  • Download speed

    Prioritizes storage quantity, rendering high-quality providers unprofitable and resulting in slow network download speeds.

  • Compliance

    Not designed to work with the evolving legislations of different countries.

  • Integration

    Creates complex development frameworks hindering widespread adoption.

Cloud data storage is a global issue. 

The future is a web3 solution.
