How EthStorge Helps DAPP Achieve True Trustlessness

The EthStorage team proposed the web3:// access protocol and the EthStorage second-layer storage protocol, aiming to help decentralized applications (DAPP) achieve true trustlessness. Most of the current DAPP front-ends and databases are not deployed on Ethereum and cannot fully inherit the security of Ethereum. The web3:// protocol allows front-end code to be deployed and accessed through smart contracts, while the EthStorage protocol reduces on-chain data storage costs through PoRA and zero-knowledge proofs. These two technologies enable DAPP to get closer to Ethereum’s decentralized vision and achieve permanent operation and censorship resistance.

The Difference Between Solana and ETH Programming Models

This article compares the smart contract programming models of Solana and Ethereum. Solana's on-chain programs are similar to Ethereum's smart contracts, but Solana offers a different runtime environment through its unique account model and data decoupling approach. Solana's account model separates code and data storage, enhancing security. Solana primarily uses the Rust language for smart contract development, which offers high performance and security but has a steep learning curve. Ethereum, on the other hand, mainly uses Solidity, providing a simpler and more mature development experience. Despite the development challenges with Solana, its high throughput, low costs, and scalability make it an ideal choice for developing high-performance dApps.

Evolution of Decentralized Cloud Services

Decentralized cloud services have always been one of the most important applications of blockchain. Web3 + cloud services are not only a very good narrative direction, but also very easy to combine with AI to further enhance the imagination. DFINITY IC has great technical challenges in achieving real-time consensus calculations in a purely asynchronous environment such as cloud services. Arweave AO breaks the shackles of the blockchain and does not deal with the calculation itself and the achievement of consensus. Instead, it employs an economic model and lazy verification to guarantee the accuracy of computation results, offering a novel approach to decentralized computing.
