NEW YORK (WEB PR)
June 22, 2022
Storj, one of the fastest growing decentralized storage companies, today announced three new NFT customers, Europa Labs, Ultimate Division and AMUZED.
Storj will be exhibiting at the NFT.NYC Expo in New York from June 20-23 and is already the preferred storage layer of leading Web3 companies for fast blockchain synchronization. Storj recently announced the beta version of its IPFS pinning service, driving the continued growth of its decentralized network for minting platforms and NFT marketplaces.
“Storj is ideal for storing digital assets such as NFTs as it brings enterprise-grade performance, durability and security to Web3. Typing platforms and brands can be confident that their customers will always have instant access to their NFTs,” said Ben Golub, CEO of Storj. “Other pinning services use centralized services or decentralized platforms with limited availability. Storj brings a new standard of speed and permanence to NFTs and is excited to work with these visionary NFT platforms.
Storj enables NFT minters, marketplaces and platforms to upload to IPFS and generate a content address (CID) using existing tools, or use the Storj easy upload endpoint HTTP to IPFS. Once users have a CID, they can pin that CID through a smart contract. This gives visibility, permanence and transparency to the stored content. The Storj IPFS pinning service aggregates and stores content on Storj with its global network of over 13,000 nodes in over 100 countries, ensuring pinned data is durable in the face of data center fires, environmental disasters and geopolitical unrest.
Europa Labs and E11EVEN Crypto.
Europa Labs is an emerging leader in physical Web3 exchangeable technology for NFT and has been selected by E11EVEN Crypto as an official partner for its Web3 infrastructure and tokenized exchangeables. Europa has partnered with Captain’s Club to verify NFT holders so they can get VIP line tickets and other redeemable.
“Storj is the foundation of our native Web3 stack. NFT asset metadata is hosted on IPFS and pinned to the Storj decentralized cloud,” said Kevin Leffew, Chief Product Officer and Founder of Europa Labs. “We chose Storj because of its advantages over hyperscaler centralized storage in terms of performance, price, privacy and security. Most importantly, we know for our NFT owners that the metadata and the asset will be available long term.
Ultimate Division is a football simulation and card collecting game that allows players to create their own teams with NFTs to compete with other players to earn Ultimate Division Tokens (TKDS). A smart contract allows the minting of an NFT player card with randomly generated skills, attributes and a picture of a fictional player and also retains game data. The NFT player card becomes the property of its purchaser , who can use it in competitions, as well as to trade or sell it to other Ultimate Division players. The ownership issue played a big part in Ultimate Division’s choice to go with Storj.
“Storj allows us to produce our NFTs in a more transparent, trustworthy and reliable way,” said Ruslan Azarov, CEO of Ultimate Division. “When people receive an NFT, they want to know that its content and associated image will not change. The decentralized nature and immutability of Storj means we couldn’t change NFTs even if we wanted to.
AMUZED will disrupt the music industry by giving fans a new way to discover their favorite artists via NFTs. As the first blockchain-based music management game, AMUZED needed a fast and affordable storage option for users to collect their exclusive tokens.
“AMUZED aims to reward both musical artists and fans,” said Maria Joite, co-founder and CEO of AMUZED. “For decades, artists have been looking for new ways to directly engage their fans. With decentralization and blockchain, everyone has access to and ownership of their tokens. Storj is the perfect partner to store our artist collectibles due to its decentralized global network for fast file access while keeping digital assets secure and immutable, Storj performs better at the edge and is more affordable than centralized providers.”
These customers chose to work with Storj because of the performance when accessing NFTs, the security of the NFT digital asset, and the significant cost savings. Unlike other solutions that pin content to traditional centralized storage providers or use location-based fungible links, Storj is truly decentralized and immutable. The Storj IPFS pinning service is reliable, persistent over the long term, and very fast to retrieve and share.
