Arweave Releases a Seal Of Permanence
Symbols are a powerful way to condense and translate ideas at scale — at Arweave we represent the idea of truly permanent censorship-resistant storage technology, and today, we are excited to marry the two. Before we introduce you to the seal of permanence, let’s first quickly recall an anecdote from the early days of PC adoption.Inside Intel The early 1990’s was a period of mass computer adoption by consumers worldwide. It was the first time that PCs were being purchased by a general ‘household’ consumer rather than computer-native programmers and developers, a relatively small community which had so far formed the bulk of PC demand. In such a transformative atmosphere, computer manufacturers using Intel processors almost universally adopt the ‘Intel Inside’ logo for display on their PC products. Why? There were two primary reasons:As the PC-market entered widespread adoption, it helped lay consumers make purchasing decisions based on quality assurances of a reliable product rather than having to learn the technical geekspeak that plagued computer sales of the time.The logo showed their existing customers that they cared deeply about the integrity and quality of their product and its components. Discerning customers in-turn rewarded these PC brands with their business and loyalty.A Gold Standard for Decentralized Storage The Arweave permanent storage protocol has become well-known in the NFT and digital art communities for being a decentralized and immutable permanent store for media, NFT and permaweb apps. Further, Arweave was lauded by Sotheby’s as ‘the most robust decentralized storage solution’ and has been adopted by seminal projects in this space such as BT’s Genesis.json and Jay Z’s Heir to the Throne NFT. When users click on a link that points to data stored on Arweave, whether it is media, an archived webpage, or a permaweb application, it just works. Any information or service stored on Arweave gives strong guarantees to the user that the content or application they are accessing will never change. That means if they come back to access it a year, or five, or even a hundred years from now, the data or service will exist and crucially, exist in its current form. Despite the prominence and growing adoption of web3 today, new entrants and lay consumers of digital art and decentralized applications have no easy way to ensure the constancy and integrity of the services and media they consume. Moreover, as web3 enters this new phase of mass consumer adoption, it is critical that we effectively communicate the benefits of decentralized networks without overwhelming users.Seal of Permanence This is why today we are releasing a new visual language that will allow developers and organisations using Arweave to easily portray to their users that their data or service is stored securely and permanently on Arweave. This is a powerful way to communicate the ideals of decentralized storage to consumers who may not necessarily be familiar with the immutability and integrity guarantees of blockchain technology. Here are the logos, in both dark and light versions (for use with contrasting backgrounds). If you’re a builder using Arweave for storage of any of your files or applications, we encourage you to use this seal within your application or website to communicate its permanence. The assets are available for download here — this also includes a placement guide for how to include these logos in your products and applications. Join existing applications like decentralized blogging platform and Solana Riptide winner Wordcel Club, web3 native DAO-community platform Metaforo and music NFT marketplace Releap in using this seal. Happy building!!!
Arweave permanent storage is now available on Avalanche
Interoperability with other smart-contract chains allows developers building on these platforms to leverage the unique permanent storage guarantees of Arweave. One such platform is Avalanche — a blazingly fast, low cost and eco-friendly smart contract chain. Avalanche is one of the fastest smart contracts platforms in the blockchain industry, as measured by time-to-finality. Avalanche is also the premier platform for individuals and enterprises to easily create powerful, reliable, and secure private or public networks with complete control over their implementation. These “Subnets” can be the foundation for the creation of new ecosystems of value in asset tokenization and regulated institutional use cases. We are pleased to announce that Arweave storage is now natively available on Avalanche. Arweave continues to be the staple solution for permanent storage in web3 applications. Any decentralized applications requiring truly long-term (or permanent) storage should use Arweave to store arbitrary amounts of data in its current, immutable form and be guaranteed its persistence and availability for well beyond 200 years. Users can now pay for permanent storage using Avalanche wallets and AVAX tokens. This opens a new design space for building truly decentralized applications on Avalanche, where everything from the UI to the smart contracts to the database is decentralized. Examples could include a full-stack decentralized social network, or an Avalanche version of Decentraland, only this time fully decentralized and immutable. This interoperability is enabled by the Bundlr Network — which operates as an aggregator on top of Arweave by collecting many pieces of data and submitting them to the Arweave network in a single base-layer transaction. This allows the bundlr to offer custom payment options for its own users by paying to the Arweave network in AR, but settling with its users in a currency of their choice. Thanks to bundlr, the one-time payment required for uploading is now possible to make using AVAX. If you have any permanent storage needs for your Avalanche application, you can now use this integration. Try building an app on avalanche today — https://docs.avax.network/, and store on Arweave using bundlr — https://docs.bundlr.network/.
Arweave storage is now natively available in Polygon
Interoperability is an increasingly crucial topic within the blockchain space, as it expands the possible functionalities that blockchain networks can offer to their ecosystems once they are connected. Permanent and scalable storage on Arweave is one such functionality that other blockchains do not possess, but could unlock massive potential for applications on their networks. This is where Bundlr comes in. Bundlr Network is an aggregation system that collects and submits many pieces of data to the Arweave network in one single base-layer transaction. This unlocks unparalleled scalability of throughput for data transactions in the Arweave network, and but it also enables an exciting new capability: delegated payments. When users send transactions to the Bundlr Network, their payments to the Arweave network for storage are handled by their Bundlr node. The user and the Bundlr node are then free to organise their own mutually satisfactory payment mechanism. Enabling massively scalable bundled transactions (even with just AR payments) unleashed extraordinary growth in the Arweave ecosystem. To put this growth in perspective, the Arweave network is on track to process 15x as many data uploads in November as it did in August! The next phase of growth is now here: making Arweave’s storage capabilities universally accessible across all platforms, with any tokens. The first network we are excited to partner with on this journey is Polygon. Polygon is a super fast, ultra-low fee adjunct to Ethereum. This new integration of Arweave (via Bundlr Network) with Polygon allows users of the network to easily upload data to the Arweave network using tokens native to Polygon. Polygon is the leading interoperability platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development. Its growing suite of products offers developers easy access to a range of scalable technologies, along with lower gas fees which attracts massive numbers of smaller transactions. This integration is live and ready for developers to use today via the resources here. The next step for this partnership is to roll this integration into all the wallets in the Polygon ecosystem, bringing these new capabilities directly to end-users. To accelerate these integrations Arweave, Polygon and Bundlr are thrilled to announce the launch of a $9,000 USD developer grant to bring these features into the wallets.

Swapping Assets and NFTs on Arweave with Verto Exchange
Video tutorials to get you started with Verto Exchange, a protocol for swaps and NFT trading on the Arweave network. Verto is a decentralized trading protocol built on Arweave. Verto allows anyone to buy or sell profit sharing tokens (PSTs) that have been minted on the network. PSTs are tokens on Arweave that distribute to their holders ongoing dividends accrued from dapp usage. Learn how to swap assets on Verto exchange: https://medium.com/media/3c3a36ad33e3629a023a472249ea4aec/href Verto has also launched Space, an application to browse and trade NFTs. Verto Space has built in attention rewards, powered by incentivization protocol Open Koi. Verto Space allows Arweave users to buy and sell profit sharing tokens for specific NFTs, providing not just fractional ownership over the assets, but revenue generation based on the attention rewards generated from that NFT on the Arweave network. Check out the tutorial for using Verto Space and download ArConnect to get started: https://medium.com/media/d324ff34d95cd44055c23f2ec3dd61e1/href
NFTs and Attention Rewards: Verto and Koi Spotlight
Product teams Verto and Koi are building the foundational apps for the Arweave ecosystem, including NFT redemptions, ETH — AR swaps, and exchanges. The Arweave ecosystem is a burgeoning community of developers and entrepreneurs focused on building out the core applications and capabilities of the network. Two applications in particular have been at the forefront of providing critical functionality and user experience to the Arweave network: Verto and Koi.Verto Verto is a decentralized trading protocol built on Arweave. Verto allows anyone to buy or sell profit sharing tokens (PSTs) that have been minted on the network. PSTs are tokens on Arweave that distribute to their holders ongoing dividends accrued from dapp usage. When a user interacts with an Arweave application, they will spend a nominal amount of AR token for their actions. A portion of this nominal fee (known as the tip) is distributed to the individuals who own PSTs for that application in proportion to their ownership. PSTs are minted at the time of a dapp’s launch, and can be freely traded on an open market to other Arweave users who wish to be part of a dapp’s revenue stream. Verto provides this open market. The Arweave ecosystem already has a number of PSTs that have been minted and are in use. Verto’s decentralized exchange allows anyone to trade PSTs for AR and vice versa, enabling an active and deeply liquid PST marketplace. If you’re getting started with Arweave, Verto has launched an Ethereum bridge that lets anyone swap ETH and AR to start you on your journey into the permaweb. Visit Verto. Learn how to swap ETH for AR and trade PSTs on Verto with our Verto Exchange Tutorial. (Just getting started with Verto and/or Arweave? See below for more information about the ArConnect Wallet to start trading on Verto). Verto is also the team behind ArConnect, a secure wallet for the Arweave network. ArConnect lets users store their assets in a central, non-custodial, in-browser wallet so they can begin interacting with Verto and other applications. ArConnect lets users:Monitor their AR and PST balances across multiple wallets.Discover community-specific information about the PSTs they hold, such as governance and profit-sharing information.Transfer AR and PSTs to other addresses, including Verto.Stay on top of inbound and outbound transactions to/from your wallets. Download ArConnect and start your journey into the permaweb. 🕸Open Koi Open Koi is a protocol designed to incentivize participants to perform actions in favor of the network as a whole, in return for $KOI tokens. The Koi protocol adopts a mechanism of slow consensus which improves network efficiency, lowers costs, and ensures sustainability. One of Open Koi’s applications allows nodes to scrape the web and store it in the Arweave blockchain permanently. Koi is also building out a suite of tools to supercharge Arweave’s NFT solutions, starting with NFT redemption and attention rewards. The majority of NFTs today live on Ethereum. As we have seen, however, the issue of permanent and trustless NFT storage is a nuanced and often overlooked one. Arweave’s architecture ensures permanent storage. Koi takes the opportunity of Arweave NFTs to the next level by enabling attention rewards in $KOI, powered by their network of Koi Task Nodes. When your NFT is minted on Ethereum, you can “redeem” your NFT onto the Arweave blockchain using the Koi.Rocks web dapp. Through Koi.Rocks, the Open Koi protocol will store your NFT on Arweave and mint a unique Profit Sharing Token (PST) for your NFT. Once your NFT is redeemed Koi.Rocks and stored on Arweave, it is publicly viewable by anyone else using Koi, Verto, and other applications. Whenever your NFT is viewed by someone — regardless of whether or not they buy it — you will earn attention rewards in the form of $KOI. $KOI is distributed to network users once a day per Open Koi’s slow consensus architecture. If you own 100% of your NFT PSTs, then you will earn 100% of the attention rewards that your NFT deserves. If, after you redeemed your NFT and minted your PSTs, you chose to sell 50% of them to buyers on Verto, then you would receive 50% of the attention rewards for your NFTs. Koi.rocks is the first working application of PoRT, or Proofs of Real Traffic. Proofs of Real Traffic ensure that the gateway tracking and subsequent attention tracking enabled by the Koi protocol are not taken advantage of by bad actors. Koi is supercharging Arweave’s NFT ecosystem by providing additional incentives for users to store their NFTs on Arweave. Not only is it ensured to last forever; it additionally can accrue attention rewards based on its popularity to other users on the network.

Permanent NFT Storage on the Arweave Network
The difference between NFT storage and ownership, and Arweave’s blockweave solution to truly permanent storage. NFTs today rely on metadata and referenced content that is not always guaranteed to live on mediums that will persist forever. Arweave’s blockweave architecture ensures absolute permanent storage, enabling NFTs minted elsewhere or natively to achieve true, trustless immutability. In Web2, there are two primary issues facing the management of content: ownership and storage. Combined, these two problems have created an internet experience dictated by ad models, insufficient individual monetization, and fragile user experiences. Ownership. The internet today does a poor job of establishing ownership or provenance of content online. Content is too easily replicated across multiple sites and servers without a scalable or consistent way for its original creator(s) to manage it. Often, content is most easily shared through centralized entities like Facebook. By virtue of keeping this content on their servers, Facebook effectively owns it. Anything created on, uploaded to, sent through, or monetized on a centralized platform is, at the end of the day, out of the hands of the creator. It can voluntarily or involuntarily shut off services, shut out creators, or shut down entirely. This tenuous content architecture has rendered it difficult for online creators to attach value to their work without relying on intermediary platforms to dictate scarcity and legitimacy. Storage. Broadly speaking, today’s web browsing is lossy. Content today is retrieved by pointing to domain names that live in physical servers or centralized clouds. This type of content retrieval is scalable, but extremely susceptible to disappearing. If the method of storage (i.e. those servers or clouds) is controlled by a single entity like a Facebook or Amazon, it can be removed by that entity — effectively deleting any content that formerly relied on that storage to exist on the internet. Users would be faced with “404 page not found” error messages. If the content (the image, text, webpage, video) has been removed from the location being pointed to by the URL, the content is irretrievable. Overall, this has resulted in a fragile digital ecosystem in which content can suddenly disappear when a server or location goes offline.The Rise of NFTs: a solution for digital ownership The innovation of NFTs with Ethereum’s ERC-721 standard solved one of the primary issues with content on the internet: ownership. By minting an NFT on a decentralized ledger, people are able to verify ownership and provenance of individual pieces of content — artwork, essays, videos, music, etc. Verified, secure, and transparent assets also naturally enable value to be associated with NFTs, something previously impossible on the ownership-null architecture of Web2. As we have seen within the last six months in particular, the benefits of NFTs for artists, musicians, and writers is tremendous. Content creators have historically been both the vanguards and the victims of the internet; those who create the unique experiences we seek out online are also unable to effectively own or monetize their very contributions. As the world of NFTs grows, however, we need to ensure that Web3 does not inherit any of the fragility of Web2. We’ve solved for ownership, but what about the other issue with content management in today’s internet — storage?The Elephant in the Room: NFT and metadata storage Of the two issues with content on Web2, current NFT standards such as ERC-721 have solved ownership, but not storage. When an NFT is minted on Ethereum, for example, the NFT itself is represented by an address on the network that is indivisible, immutable, and unique. However, the content and metadata of the NFT does not, by default, live on a permanent storage network. The content and metadata includes everything that, arguably, makes an NFT desirable, like the details of the artwork or the lyrics of the song. The nagging question still remains: my NFT address lives on the blockchain, but where do the details themselves (the art, the words, the size, the style) live?https://twitter.com/TrustlessState/status/1362914198548750336 To retrieve that “referenced content” and render the NFT as the intendented asset, the hash contains a tokenURI that points to all the important information. Essentially, although the NFT itself lives on the blockchain, what actually gives it value (i.e. for art, the colors and shapes) don’t necessarily live on-chain. That information can live on a centralized server, and is subject to disappearing just as content on the internet has disappeared in the past, leaving a 404 error message in its place. In this way, NFTs are subject to the same fundamental issue that content has now on Web2. If we can’t figure out what an NFT on Ethereum looks like because the server containing the content information has gone offline, the asset itself becomes valueless. This risk is not theoretical. Tron Dogs and NiftyMoji are two examples, where the projects seem to have disappeared. Check My NFT is a site that lets people verify the strength of their NFT in terms of permanent storage. Though the people who bought those NFTs still own the assets, they are rendered worthless without access to the associated metadata.Permanent NFT Storage on Arweave This storage fragility of NFTs has not been lost on the crypto ecosystem. Existing Web3 storage providers have sought to address this problem, but still encounter regular examples of NFTs stored on these networks disappearing. The ecosystem needs a solution that provides verifiably permanent storage. Enter Arweave. Arweave lets anyone store an NFT that was minted on another network or mint one natively on Arweave itself. To ensure absolute permanent storage, the Arweave employs the blockweave as a content storage and permanence mechanism. The blockweave is a set of blocks that each contain data and link back to multiple previous blocks within the network. This interwoven data structure allows the network to uphold a Proof of Access (technically, a Succinct Proof of Random Access [SPoRA]) consensus mechanism that requires miners to prove access to old data in order to add new blocks. This storage architecture ensures permanent storage for anything on the network at a remarkably low cost. The estimated cost to mint an NFT that is guaranteed to exist forever is $0.005/MB. An NFT on Arweave will never be at risk of disappearing. No amount of time or lapse of content interaction will ever jeopardize a user’s ability to recall the content whenever they wish. And we’re already seeing this happen.1111 by Kevin Abosch: Arweave permanent storage in action Kevin Abosch is a conceptual artist and a pioneer in the emerging blockchain art ecosystem. On March 23, 2021, Kevin Abosch released on OpenSea his 1111 series. Each NFT minted on Ethereum as part of Kevin’s 1111 release will be bridged onto the Arweave ecosystem, where the metadata will exist as its distinct yet linked NFT. Those who purchase Kevin’s NFT will be able to confidently retain their artwork without worrying about the fate of OpenSea or if their content will ever go offline. Their Ethereum NFT is immutably linked to a permanently-stored metadata record on Arweave. Start with Arweave.
The Arweave Network is Now Running Succinct Random Proofs of Access (SPoRA)
At 20:03 EST on February 24th, the first SPoRA block was mined on the Arweave network. Block 633720 marks an important upgrade to Arweave and a new era of efficient consensus and mining operations among network participants.Breaking down SPoRA Succinct Proofs of Random Access (SPoRA) is a new type of consensus mechanism for the Arweave network. Until block 633720, Arweave was running a classic Proof of Work (PoW) consensus mechanism, with the additional requirement for blocks to include a reference to past data on the network (a structure critical to the system’s blockweave architecture) — known together as Proof of Access (PoA). PoA consensus for Arweave has, up until February 24, encountered two opportunities that were improved with a new consensus mechanism: First, align mining profitability with speed of data access. PoA achieved Arweave’s primary goal of permanent storage and data access, but it imposed no significant incentives for miners to retrieve data quickly. Without a competitive edge to data retrieval, miners found an opportunity to benefit from using a remote storage pool rather than maintaining separate, decentralized nodes. SPoRA incentivizes miners to replicate data more efficiently and more swiftly, ending the era of CPU domination. Every joule contributed to the network now needs to be accompanied by yet another share of the dataset. In summary, SPoRA creates a more decentralized and efficient blockweave by disincentivizing resource pooling among CPUs. Second, reduce the energy required to maintain the network. PoW, though secure, reliable, and resilient, is an extremely energy-intensive consensus mechanism. SPoRA’s architecture requires less energy to maintain, resulting not only in lower overhead for miners, but for a cleaner and more efficient system overall. Also, whereas classic PoW networks like Bitcoin spend energy for energy’s sake, the energy spent mining on the Arweave SPoRA network goes towards data storage and retrieval. This architecture is a more elegant alignment between resource spending and utility.The upgrade to SPoRA Block 633719 was the last PoA block on the Arweave network before the upgrade to SPoRA began. In order to mine the first SPoRA block, the Arweave dataset was randomly polled and verified over 12 billion times. Block 633720 was generated in a completely decentralized way, without any manual intervention or guidance from the Arweave development team. After the first 10 SPoRA “slow” blocks, the network returned to normal, steady operation. So, what’s next? In the three year history of Arweave, there has only been one other mining upgrade this large. There likely will never be another of this magnitude. We anticipate a renaissance in mining on the Arweave network as miners recognize the opportunity of running individual operations. To learn more about SPoRA and its specifications, see here.

|Calo Indoor Will Launch as First Burn-to-Earn Project With AR and GameFi
[PRESS RELESAE - Hochiminh, Vietnam, 30th August, 2022]
Calo Metaverse has revealed that its second project will be Calo Indoor, the first application in the world to utilize the Burn-to-Earn (B2E) reward mechanism. The Calo Indoor app also combines AR (Augmented Reality) technology with GameFi elements that are synonymous with web3.
Burn-to-Earn is a progression of the Move-to-Earn (M2E) trend which dominated web3 in early 2022. If M2E encourages users to join outdoor physical activities, then B2E does the same for indoor exercise. Calo Indoor encourages users to exercise at home through the Augmented Reality games installed on the smartphone or tablet app. To start practicing, players need to equip a virtual NFT sneaker suitable for each type of exercise. Players can earn valuable rewards for exercising that can be converted into cash such as IFIT tokens, Calo tokens or other items in-game.
The Calo Indoor app taps into growing demand for home workouts that don’t require specialist equipment. As more people work from home and spend less time commuting, the home fitness market has expanded rapidly. Calo Indoor is particularly beneficial to residents of urban areas to whom indoor exercise is often preferable and more convenient than outdoor alternatives such as running.
Calo Indoor follows Calo Run in being released by the CaloVerse ecosystem. It’s focused on building a system of indoor exercise activities that can be enhanced by AR technology. The two apps that h...
|Market Update: Bitcoin And Ethereum Struggles To Recover, AR And NMR Soa...
Despite the market condition, top currencies, Bitcoin and Ethereum, struggle to regain their values. On the other hand, some altcoins, AR, and NMR are showing a significant gain charm over 14-days.
Since the Fed Reserve decided to raise interest rates and the May inflation report, Bitcoin has been floating in a small zone between $19,000 and $20,000. But since last month, the price of Ethereum, which had a great November like bitcoin, has been floating between $1,100 and $1,000.
Meanwhile, it made an effort and struggled to recoup its value, but the price of Ethereum couldn't rise beyond $1,100. CoinGecko data shows ETH is currently trading at $1,073.58, and in the past 7 and 14 days, ETH has lost 10.6% and 0.6% of its value, respectively.
Significant Growth in AR and NMR
Arweave (AR), one of the top 100 crypto assets by performance and market capitalization, is booming, while two of the most popular currencies are faltering. Per the statistics from CoinGecko, AR has reached $11 and increased by 10% in one day, 15% in seven days, and 32% in fourteen.
A decentralized storage network, Arweave aims to provide a platform for the long-term archival of data. The Arweave network pays 'miners' to keep the network's data permanently stored using its native coin, named AR.
Similarly, Numeraire (NMR) is also leading in week gainers. It displays a noteworthy increase of 122% over a week. NMR is currently trading at $19.37, per the statistics of Coinmarketcap.

|Technical Analysis: Arweave up Over 44% in the Last Week, Monero Starts ...
Arweave, which rose by over 44% in the last week, was once again in the green, trading over 10% higher on Monday. This comes as monero slipped in today's session.
Following a bearish January, crypto markets began to rebound within the last week, with arweave being one of the biggest gainers in that period.
To start the week, AR/USD is currently trading 10.32% higher, hitting an intraday peak of $39.81 in the process.
This comes as the decentralized storage network rose by 44% in the last 7-days, as it continues to move towards the $40 mark.
Looking at the chart below, the move began after arweave rallied from its recent support of $29.40, where it traded on Friday, leading to four consecutive sessions of gains.
As a result of this run, the 14-day RSI now tracks at 50.25, which means prices are neither oversold or overbought.
This sets up perfectly for a breakout beyond $40, however, with resistance at this level fairly strong, there are likely to be bears waiting to push prices back down towards support.
Should price strength continue to surge, arweave bulls may target the higher resistance of $52.
As of writing, cryptocurrencies were trading 1.37% higher on the day, however, there are a few notable bears to start the week.
Monero was one of them, with XMR/USD falling by as much as 4% during Monday's session, leading to an intraday low of $141.22.
Looking at the chart below, today's decline has resulted in monero hitting its recent support ...
