The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted many people to shift their social, entertainment, and even dining, shopping,work and other activities from the real world to online execution. The boundary between the real world and the virtual world is gradually blurred, and the era of metaverse is quietly coming. The maturity of blockchain technology has provided the metaverse with core technologies such as computing, storage and network, while the maturity of DeFi economic model has brought new innovative and open value carriers like cryptocurrency and NFT to the metaverse.
In the wave of metaverse, many enterprises and developers are actively embracing NFT and releasing unique digital collection assets. ORIGIN Storage is also continuously optimizing and upgrading its service system to help NFT projects and developers deploy their own IPFS nodes with one click, providing features such as IPFS content addressing and content fixing.
As a professional blockchain infrastructure provider, ORIGIN Storage has been focusing on IPFS & Filecoin for a long time and extending its business to NFT and even the metaverse fields, which is a necessary path for ORIGIN Storage’s development. After all, the essence of digital assets and NFT is data, and data storage as well as security is one of the key elements for the landing of the metaverse ecosystem.
The Core of the Digital Age — Data
From Web 1.0 to Web 3.0, the volume of data production has exploded from passive data reading to feverish content creation. When the real world pans out into the virtual world of the metaverse, the volume of data will once again increase exponentially. At the same time, whether virtual identity or NFT digital assets, its essence is data. In the metaverse, data has become the core carrier of value, so it can be seen that the storage and security of data is of great significance to the development of the metaverse.
In the iteration and integration of software and algorithms, the storage industry has gradually evolved from traditional disk storage to cloud storage by breaking through the physical limitations of hardware, but it still cannot meet the needs of the metaverse ecosystem. The drawbacks brought by the centralized model will bring enormous potential problems to the ecosystem of the metaverse, which is why the decentralized storage represented by IPFS is recognized as a necessary underlying technology for Web 3.0 and the metaverse.
The Cornerstone of the Metaverse Ecosystem — IPFS & Filecoin
IPFS provides a high-throughput, content-addressable block storage model with content-related hyperlinks for the purpose of decentralized, fast, efficient, reliable, and secure content storage. IPFS also pioneered the creation of an incentive layer, Filecoin, which allows any individual to use free hard disk space and bandwidth to provide data storage and retrieval services on the open market, and monetizes hard disk capacity to create a positive incentive system with infinite scalability.
The distributed architecture based on blockchain technology will store data slices scattered on multiple independent network nodes, advocating privacy protection, data redundancy backup, etc. Meanwhile, Filecoin adopts PoRep (proof of replication) and Post (proof of time and space) to ensure miners’ real storage of files and prevent attacks of sybil, generation, outsourcing and other false storage data, providing full security while ensuring data authenticity.
The metaverse accommodates a huge data system and digital assets, and the data must be ensured to be stored and invoked permanently and securely in order to truly carry the core value of the digital era. In the metaverse, IPFS & Filecoin serve as the underlying foundation to provide a permanent, secure place for all values to be stored.
Although the ecosystem of IPFS & Filecoin is still in its infancy, it will take some time to truly embrace the ecosystem of the metaverse.The market has a large number of preachers and pioneers like ORIGIN Storage, actively promoting the development and growth of the ecosystem, so that more people can easily participate in the construction of the digital era and promote the integrated development of the entity economy and the digital economy. With the efforts of these pioneers, we may be able to enter the true world of metaverse soon.
