Announcing The Sia Foundation’s Grants Program
We’re excited to announce the launch of the Sia Foundation’s Grants Program! We welcome and support contributors from all over the world to come and build on Sia. Our goal for this program is to fund research, development, developer tools, and anything else that will support and further our mission of user-owned data while enriching the Sia ecosystem. Significant thought was put into the proposal requirements, and after finalizing the grant committee members last month it’s time to get started. Comprised of members from the Sia Foundation, Skynet Labs, and the Sia community, this committee will regularly meet to discuss and approve grant requests. Head over to our site for more information and requirements for proposal submissions. If you’re interested but have questions or need help submitting your grant feel free to join the Discord server and hop in the #grants-program channel to chat with Kino, Frances, and the committee members. This channel provides a space to ask questions, discuss the grant program, share ideas, provide feedback, and collaborate with community members. See you there, and good luck!

Skynet Labs is shutting down. Skynet remains online.
Skynet Labs is shutting down. Skynet will remain online. - It is with regret that we announce Skynet Labs has been unable to complete its next round of fundraising and will be shutting down. Thankfully, Skynet as a platform will be able to continue operating: all user files will remain online and key portions of the infrastructure will continue to be actively developed. Unfortunately, Skynet will have to continue without Skynet Labs and without many of the amazing people who have put their heart and soul into building a brighter future for users and user data. Much of what Skynet has accomplished, including its ability to continue operating in the face of Skynet Lab’s dissolution, and including its ability to provide value to the wider web3 ecosystem, is owed to the efforts and contributions of the Skynet Labs team members. It is with great sadness that we will be letting the members of our team go, even though we have every need for and appreciation of their efforts. Read the full announcement to the Skynet community including what to expect next on Siasky.net or Skynetfree.net. Skynet Labs is shutting down.

Skynet Roadmap and Update: Summer 2022
Long overdue, but I’m happy to present the latest update for Skynet’s roadmap. Our recent chaos has caused us to reconsider what technology decisions are acceptable, and what it takes to build a robust platform that meets user expectations for decentralization.Fluid Skynet Portals It has become clear to us that we cannot use portals as a stable piece of infrastructure. The original idea behind portals was to make them a trusted, centralized infrastructure, but allow users to easily switch between portals in the event that a portal went offline. Users would have to find trustworthy portals but would have no exposure to vendor lock-in. This original model was (and still is) several steps ahead of most web3 providers. Major infrastructure providers like Infura and Open Sea are both closed source and difficult to operate. Skynet portals on the other hand are open source and readily swapped out from each other. The challenges with the original model were nonetheless significant. Users on different portals had difficulties sharing files with each other because files uploaded to one portal had a completely different URL than files to another portal. Retrieving files from a different portal required making changes to the URL, which is not difficult but is inconvenient. The UX annoyances surrounding Skynet portals become more pronounced when we started experiencing regular deplatformings. Siasky became unstable, and even users w...
Announcing Skynet Support on Eth.LIMO
Skynet’s footprint in the Ethereum ecosystem is expanding! We’re proud to announce Skynet is now supported on LIMO — a decentralized, open-sourced resolver. Skynet’s footprint in the Ethereum ecosystem is expanding! We’re proud to announce Skynet is now supported on LIMO — a decentralized, open-sourced resolver providing an alternative means of accessing ENS resolvable domains (Example linked here). LIMO and Skynet both strive for principles in building a decentralized, free internet, and we’re excited to see Skynet adoption in open-source, web3 infrastructure. In addition to LIMO, Skynet has worked with ENS, Metamask, and Cloudflare’s eth.link to provide the best decentralized web experience for dapps. Get started by creating an account and uploading data to Skynet Free or Skynet Pro, and follow the steps on our ENS documentation to integrate with LIMO.

The Future of Social DApps and The Ownership Economy
As users are looking for a way out of the black hole and iron fist of today’s social platforms, Web3 has cast a new vision for mainstream adoption of trustless, decentralized social applications that are owned by users, instead of corporations. Today more than ever, users are aware that centralized social platforms are putting profits and stock prices over user rights of privacy and data. This degree of trust in centralized tech is a slippery slope that enables malicious behavior from special interest groups, political parties, and rogue developers. As users are looking for a way out of the black hole and iron fist of today’s social platforms, Web3 has cast a new vision for mainstream adoption of trustless, decentralized social applications that are owned by users, instead of corporations. Over the past two years, Skynet has focused on building decentralized infrastructure for developers to support a new wave of web3 social dApps that put users first. Our vision is to see the next Twitter, Youtube, and Facebook be trustless applications that allow user ownership of data, identity, and social graphs. With trustless social dApps built around data interoperability, users can easily move across applications without having to risk social consequences or being locked out of features that have become integral to everyday living.Ownership Economy and Creator Tokens The rise of NFT’s in 2021 proved that the creators have a plac...
Decentralized Identity and “Web5” Explained
Just as everyone is getting used to the new world of web3, it’s time to introduce a new technology: web5. It’s confusing and unfortunate, but it’s the name that’s been chosen and it has a real vision behind it that’s worth paying attention to. Web3 is a catch-all term for anything cryptocurrency. And while cryptocurrency used to imply ideals of decentralization and user ownership, today it covers an ocean of projects and financial innovations, and no longer has a strong central narrative beyond ‘innovative digital objects of value’. The heavy dilution of the web3 narrative has created a vision gap that web5 has come to replace. Web5 is specifically focused on users, their identity, their data, and the idea that we can build large-scale applications such that users have control rather than corporations. For web5, cryptocurrency is a background element — it’s useful sometimes, but it’s just a tool and not a core principle or driving reason to exist. Web5 couldn’t come at a better time. Users are more aware than ever that they do not control their online presence and they do not control their online future. This was underscored recently by Elon Musk’s bid to acquire Twitter. By throwing around tens of billions of dollars, Elon Musk demonstrated that he has the power to take unilateral control of a platform that has enormous influence over the global political landscape. The hidden Twitter story thou...

Beginner’s Guide to Data Storage
Local Data Storage 101 Storing data, like many topics, is best explained through analogies. So let’s use the analogy of humans storing themselves at night, or as some might call it, sleeping 🛌. When we store ourselves for the night, we put ourselves in our bed; or rather, “store ourselves locally”. For data storage, when we want to save data, the bytes of information are saved to a computer’s hard drive. When you save data on your laptop, you are storing data locally.Cloud Storage 101 As the travel industry grew, the need to store ourselves somewhere else grew too. The solution was hotels. Similarly, as the internet grew, the need to store data somewhere else grew. Relying just on local data storage for growing enterprises meant expanding office spaces and dedicating significant resources to IT closets that hosted hundreds of computers and specialty servers. Managing IT resources burdened enterprises that were looking to scale fast with flexibility. The solution was the cloud ☁️. The majority of applications today store data in the cloud, which is simply a rented computer that allows you to save data or spin up applications quickly without being stuck with permanent IT infrastructure that might just be needed for a short-term project. Today, cloud server providers such as Google and Amazon Web Services have hundreds of thousands of servers lined on metal racks in warehouses all across the world, utilizing e...
The Worrying Depth and Scope of Censorship on the Internet
I’ve spent the past two years of my life trying to stand up a platform where people can share data. Our team is frustrated by the current state of the internet, where data lives in silos and user activities are strictly locked to a single platform. We’re trying to build an alternative where core concepts like a user’s social graph and content feed can follow them from platform to platform, and any developer can build new infrastructure that leverages all of a user’s existing data. And while that journey is going well overall, we’ve hit some eye-opening barricades when it comes to managing the content on our platform. Censorship on the Internet happens at every layer, including layers most people don’t even realize exist. Our website has been censored by our hosting providers, by platforms like Twitter, by search engines like Google, and we’ve even been censored by the Chrome browser itself. My goal today is to walk you through all of the layers of censorship that exist on the web. Most people don’t realize just how many different actors are involved in keeping a website available to the public, nor do they realize just how many of these actors can independently decide that a particular website should no longer exist.Gone with a Bang Our story starts in May 2020, when one day our website suddenly vanished.

|Nashville SC to Accept Valkyrie Investments Sponsorship Fee in Bitcoin
The Major Soccer League participant Nashville SC partnered with the digital asset investment manager Valkyrie Investments. The latter vowed to pay its sponsorship fee entirely in bitcoin.
The First MSL Team to Accept BTC Sponsorship Payment
One of the leading American soccer teams – Nashville SC – dived in the world of crypto by signing a deal with Valkyrie Investments. As part of the agreement, the Premier Club – located at Nashville SC’s stadium, will be renamed to Valkyrie Premier Club. In addition to that, the soccer players will have the company’s logo embroidered on their training tops.
The soccer team did not disclose the amount of the deal. However, it revealed that Valkyrie Investments will pay it entirely in bitcoin. Thus, Nashville SC will become the first Major League Soccer club to accept the primary digital asset as a sponsorship settlement.
Dan Farrell – Vice President of Corporate Partnerships of the team – said the collaboration provides both a “local tie and a platform to connect sports and entertainment to cryptocurrency in the hottest city in the United States.” Accepting bitcoin as a payment method encompasses the club’s ambition to be a pioneer “on and off the pitch.”
Speaking on the matter was also Leah Wald – CEO of Valkyrie Investments. In her view, soccer is “very much a community-driven sport,” and the deal could increase crypto’s popularity in the sector...
