🧊What is Glacier?

Q:Could you give a quick intro about what Glacier is?

Glacier Network - Programmable Data Composability for Trustless Data Primitives

Introduction Glacier is building a composable, modular and scalable L2 data network for large-scale Dapps. Glacier empowers decentralized apps (DApp) to build on decentralized databases (DDB). It provides programmable data composability powered by L2 rollup solutions to seamlessly and effortlessly handle datasets with NoSQL GlacierDB on top of Arweave, Filecoin, BNB Greenfield, and more.

Q: Could you provide a summary about technical details?

  • Modularization & Decentralization Secured by L2 rollup solutions

  • Fully support MongoDB-like NoSQL and CRUD

  • Programmable large KV store and dynamic datasets

  • Apply ZK proofs to verify queries in the cache

  • Integrate encryption protocols for access control of columns

  • Develop web3 Dapps like web2 seamlessly with ultra-low cost

  • Each row in a collection is a dynamic NFT

  • Data curation & incentives in Stablecoin & Tokens

Q: What problem is Glacier solving?

  • Pseudo-Decentralization & Data Insecurity

  • Lack of Scalability and Capacity

  • Uninteroperability of Smart Contracts

Q: What value does Glacier add to Web3?

We deliver immense value to Web3 developers, making our product an indispensable necessity in their toolkit:

  • Ultra Low Cost: Glacier can save 90% cost for Dapps developers utilizing our bundle and batch operations.

  • High Query Reliability: The decentralized storage is mainly designed for storing data, but not yet for accessing & querying data with frequent updates. Glacier can write and run any query to search the contents of all stored transactions, assets, metadata and blocks on the Glacier network.

  • Data Model Design: The Data structure of SocialFi, NFT, and GameFi is intricate, resulting in the significant generation of off-chain data. Glacier is dedicated to constructing Data Models and empowering applications in a fully decentralized way.

  • Modularity Modular: Design enables developers to seamlessly utilize their desired storage layer across multi-chains powered by L2 Rollup.

Q: What are Glacier's Key Features?

  • Composable, modular & scalable NoSQL Structure: The core of Glacier Network is a composable, modular and scalable NoSQL database—GlacierDB. It is built for resilience, immutability, interoperability, and the highest levels of data privacy and security in Web3.

  • Large-scale On-chain Adoption with L2 Rollup: Glacier powers massive amounts of data in production and fully mines the on-chain data to provide better data services to users. Modularization and decentralization is secured by zk-rollup.

  • Built On the Top of Permanent Storage: Glacier applies IPFS, Arweave and BNB Greenfield to store, share, and host datasets at scale to make the storage and query fully secure.

  • Mint & Build Your Own Datasets in One Minute: With Glacier, developers can securely mint and build their own database in a permissionless way that enables Web3 devs to utilize data easily and effortlessly with ultra low cost.

Q: What competitive advantages does Glacier have?

  • Seamlessly & Effortlessly: Glacier offers a MongoDB-like interface powered by L2 Rollup, significantly reducing the entry barrier for developers.

  • Modular Design First: Glacier excels in compatibility. Our modular design caters to different requirements across multi-chains and multi-storage layers.

  • Support Interoperability: Glacier provides full interoperability to the Web3 data and make the Web3 data easily queried, transferred and interoperated.
