Arweave Ecosystem Weekly Report #15: “Polygonal Edition”

0 1,775

This week, Arweave hits 30TB stored, integrates with Polygon, and edges closer to another batch of permaweb projects graduating from the Open Web Foundry.

Outside of the core protocol, it’s all happening in the ecosystem. We have plenty of podcasts, videos, and updates to share from the most exciting PSTs and DAOs that make up the thriving Arweave community.

Let’s get polygonal.

I. Arweave Network

Pay for storage on Arweave with MATIC (and others?)

Via the Bundlr Network – a super-scalable Arweave L2 with guaranteed transaction mining – it’s now possible to store any data on the Arweave network using MATIC tokens, not just AR.

For now, this means in practice that application owners can deposit MATIC into their bundler instance, and cover that cost for end users. With the ongoing grant to integrate with Polygon-compatible wallets, this will soon be an option for application users, too. Learn more about the grant and integration here.

P.S., keep up with updates with everFinance, who are looking to introduce the option to pay with any token, asap.

Permaweb exceeds 30TB stored

The total weave size has hit a new milestone, tripling since August.

The introduction and adoption of bundles via Bundlr Network has massively increased network scalability. Bundler nodes have processed over 43 million files – in far fewer than 43 million transactions, due to the bundler submitting large batches of files as a single transaction.


OWF hosts final spotlight before demo day

The sixth edition of the Open Web Foundry is coming to a close, with Demo Day scheduled for December 2nd. Today, the OWF will hold a presentation of established teams from previous iterations and new entrants.

everFinance open-sources transaction sync tooling for Go developers

everFinance’s arsyncer library for rapid transaction syncing has been released on GitHub. The tool uses 100 concurrent threads to read transactions from Arweave at high speeds. The library is being used currently in everFinance’s products as a way to massively improve speed and scale of graphql queries.

KYVE announces Celo pool, delegation, and plans to rewrite contracts in Solidity

KYVE is on a roll lately, adding a new blockchain pool to the app each week. When a chain is added to the pool, it ensures that all historical data is stored straight to Arweave, backing up the thesis that Arweave is the layer 0 across chains.

Last week, it was Solana. This week – joining Avalanche, Moonriver and Cosmos, it’s Celo. Celo’s historical data will be stored forever on Arweave, enabling any app like a block explorer or DEX to call upon Arweave rather than forcing the L1 itself to up node requirements and burden miners with that archival data.

On top of this, KYVE also announced this week a change from SmartWeave to Solidity, the ability to delegate $KYVE tokens to another user, and a visual rebrand.
