Bluzelle launches mainnet decentralized storage for NFT content

Nov 4, 2021 | CoinTelegraph News | 0 comments


Bluezelle’s mainnet R2 file storage system aims to provide a decentralized alternative to IPFS.

Bluzelle, a decentralized storage network, has announced the release of its mainnet R2 file storage system designed to enhance the decentralization of nonfungible tokens (NFT) and their corresponding data.

The solution was created amid the rise in concerns around the lack of immutability on the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) protocol, a relatively undiscussed model of storage that currently serves as the gold standard for the majority of NFT assets including Cryptopunks and Beeple.

Twitter user Jonty Wareing shared a popular assessment on the fundamental flaws of IPFS for NFT projects.

In their announcement, Bluzelle highlighted that prominent use-cases for their service include NFT content surrounding 3D digital art or video reels.

Pavel Bains, CEO of Bluzelle, spoke to Cointelegraph about the importance of NFT’s assets and data transitioning from IPFS storage to a truly decentralized system as the sector emerges into the mainstream:

“IPFS is a decentralized network. But it doesn’t assure decentralized storage. Your NFT sits only in one node. That node can go down. If users don’t want that risk, they should be using systems like Bluzelle which can assure that their asset is safe in multiple places at once.”

Bluzelle’s infrastructure has already been deployed on Mintable and is expected to be implemented on a series of other NFT marketplaces in the coming months subject to successful testing.

Implementing this decentralized model will grant assurances to buyers and holders that their NFT assets are safely secured, as well as resistant to compromise in the event of a platform shutdown, a model somewhat akin to hardware wallet storage for crypto assets.

Bains also shared his expectations for the mainnet launch, offering his perspective on the potential impact the implementation could have on Bluzelle’s ecosystem over the next year:

“This is our first real use case. Kind of like ICOs were for Ethereum. We can focus on one area and really serve those customers. I think NFTs are going to expand and grow in new ways and so it will allow Bluzelle to develop new features to support it. ”
