In many cases, decentralized applications are not as ‘decentralized’ as we might imagine. Much of their tech, including data storage, is reliant on centralized solutions. This makes DApps vulnerable to the inherent problems of centralization. Just this month, for example, Cloudflare went down, rendering thousands of apps inaccessible to users.
One of our core goals is to provide developers on Matic with a fully-decentralized tech stack. In order to advance this goal, we’ve joined forces with decentralized data network Bluzelle, enabling Matic developers to get closer to a complete Web3 product.
Bluzelle enables DApps and tokenized applications to manage data in a secure, tamper-proof, and highly scalable manner, and is designed to be interoperable for DApps on any blockchain.
By using Matic’s blockchain scaling solution alongside Bluzelle’s decentralized data storage network, DApp developers are now being empowered with the ability to create DApps which can effectively provide large user numbers with verifiably secure, high-performance data storage.
“Matic is a critical solution for many of the use cases Bluzelle is designed for. As a NoSQL database, we’re built for finance and gaming. Those are two of the biggest areas developers are using Matic for. It’s a natural fit.”Pavel Bains, CEO of Bluzelle.
In order to help foster the growth of a truly decentralized DApp ecosystem on Matic, Bluzelle will be contributing up to $10,000 per month to Matic’s Build-n-Earn incentive program, which offers Matic developers monthly recurring benefits including $50,000 in funding from the Matic Foundation. Projects that build on Matic and use Bluzelle as the data layer can receive grants both from Bluzelle and Matic.
Since Bluzelle is powered by Cosmos, we will also be working with Bluzelle to become more deeply integrated into the Cosmos DApp ecosystem, thereby furthering our goal of providing scalability for the global decentralized movement.
What is Bluzelle?
Bluzelle aims to be the go-to data layer for Web 3.0 by providing a decentralized data network that is tamper-proof and has greater privacy, scalability and availability than traditional solutions.
Bluzelle is fully decentralized and stores data across thousands of nodes around the world. Each node provides storage space and earns a fee. Bluzelle is the AirBnB of databases.
Powered by Cosmos, Bluzelle handles 10,000 TPS and is a delegated proof of stake network. Any laptop, desktop, mobile device and gaming console can become a node on Bluzelle.
