Qi Zhou, founder of EthStorage and QuarkChain, took to Twitter yesterday, January 6, 2023, to share details of the experience. Currently, the website can be viewed through both Web3 tools and regular browsers.
Qi Zhou points out that this mode of content storage opens up opportunities for Web3 enthusiasts, as they can use all the security of Ethereum (ETH) at significantly reduced costs.
This will also simplify the integration of newcomers. While uploading data “directly” to the Ethereum (ETH) mainnet can be expensive, using Arbitrum allows users to achieve a similar level of privacy for an insignificant fee.
Arbitrum remains the dominant Ethereum L2 scaler
Anyone can experiment with hosting their data on-chain, adds Qi Zhou. Content can be uploaded to a smart contract via the ethfs-uploader instrument. Once a contract in EthFS is created, any content can be streamed into it. This system is completely resistant to censorship.
Qi Zhou’s team will also experiment with uploading dynamic NFTs, social media, etc.
Arbitrum Nova is a blockchain from the Arbitrum team, a leading Ethereum (ETH) Layer-2 scaling solution. In January 2023, the mainnets Arbitrum One and Arbitrum Nova were responsible for 53.22% of all aggregate TVL of all L2 dApps.
Optimism, Arbitrum’s closest competitor, hosts 28% of L2 TVL.
