Arweave is a decentralized data storage protocol that is content-agnostic and designed to provide scalable and permanent on-chain storage in a sustainable manner.
The blockweave data structure and Proof-of-Access consensus mechanism form the foundations of the Arweave network’s data layer.
Mechanisms like blockshadows, wildfire and storage endowment keep the network fast, responsive and sustainable.
The permaweb is a decentralized web interface for hosting both traditional and decentralized applications on top of the Arweave network.
