Manta Network Partners with Crust Network for Decentralized Storage Privacy
Manta Network officially announces its partnership with Crust Network to build a layer of privacy for Crust’s decentralized storage Network. Crust provides a decentralized storage network of Web3.0 ecosystem. It supports multiple storage layer protocols such as IPFS, and exposes storage interfaces to application layer. Crust’s technical stack is also capable of supporting a decentralized computing layer. It is designed to build a decentralized cloud ecosystem that values data privacy and ownership.
Working together, Manta Network will be integrating with Crust’s decentralized storage network, providing it with Manta’s zero-knowledge proof network. Manta’s ZKP solution will enable private transactions throughout Crust Network. Those privacy features are passed on as added benefits to the users of Crust Network.
“Crust’s decentralized storage solution has a strong focus on privacy and confidentiality,” said Victor Ji, cofounder of Manta Network. “We’re excited to be bringing our solution to the table and work with Crust to further enhance privacy at the transaction layer of its network. Our secure, scalable solution is a perfect match to integrate into Crust.”
“Manta’s ZKP solution takes into account the theoretical and application of zero-knowledge proofs, and is a highly innovative and scalable privacy technology,” said Zikun Fan, CTO of Crust Network. “I look forward to their applications on privacy tokens and DeFi, and I’m super glad that they can put their privacy DeFi applications and contracts into IPFS and Crust. Crust can definitely power Manta’s application to be more decentralized and highly available.”
About Manta Network
Manta Network is the plug-and-play privacy-preservation protocol built to service the entire DeFi stack. Built on Substrate to leverage interoperability and zkSNARKs to leverage scalable privacy, Manta Network offers a suite of products and services that enable privacy for blockchain projects. As part of its own suite of products, Manta Network offers private payment and a private decentralized exchange, MantaSwap. Manta’s founding team comprises many US cryptocurrency veterans, professors, and scholars whose experience includes Harvard, MIT, and Algorand. Manta has previously closed a $1.1m seed round led by Polychain.
Crust implements the incentive layer protocol for decentralized storage, using storage layer protocols such as IPFS, and provides support for the application layer. Crust’s architecture also has the capability of supporting a decentralized computing layer and building a decentralized cloud ecosystem.
Currently, the Maxwell Preview network is live, and welcomes everyone to join for testing. Crust Network successfully joined the Substrate Builders Program and Web3.0 Bootcamp, and has also obtained a Web3 Foundation Grant.
