Crust provides a decentralized storage network of Web3 ecosystem. It supports multiple storage layer protocols such as IPFS, and exposes storage interfaces to application layer. Crust's technical stack is also capable of supporting a decentralized computing layer. It is designed to build a decentralized cloud ecosystem that values data privacy and ownership.
Crust works in 3 layers as follows.
MPoW (Meaningful Proof of Work) - The low-trust/zero-trust storage proof layer to inspect and prove storage work of miners.
GPoS (Guaranteed Proof of Stake) - The PoS-derived consensus layer that requires nodes to provide storage proof to get staking quota.
DSM (Decentralized Storage Market) - It enables users to place storage orders on the chain, to get their data stored and distributed on Crust Network.
