✨ Ms. Quinn Lee (Community Lead) shared us the Details about “CRUST NETWORK” and their Unique features ✨

Introduction Segment

Q. Could you please introduce yourself and Crust Network team?

Nguyet Le (Quinn): I’m Quinn Le – Community Lead from Crust Network. Crust network was founded in 2018 by Leo Wang and Bova Chen. Leo Wang was developer for Cisco and Microsoft and Bova Chen has background in finance and investment. Both of them had many experience in startup before they started Crust Network. The company is based in Shanghai but our team now has more than 40 people around the world. Our team is backed by Decentralized Cloud Foudation and several big Venture capital like NGC Ventures,, etc.

Q. Can you briefly introduce Crust Network? What is your Roadmap and where are you now?

Nguyet Le (Quinn): Crust Network is a decentralized storage blockchain. Crust is based on a huge IPFS storage network and is responsible for scheduling nodes and orders. Users’ files are distributed and stored on the hard disks of nodes around the world through the Crust network, and then the working nodes will get corresponding incentives.

The initial development team of Crust was established in 2018 and has undergone two years of development. In December 2020, the incentive test network “Profit Ark” was started, and the test on the node side (storage space provider) was opened. The Crust Maxwell Preview network was launched in February 2021, and the storage function was tested. The Crust mainnet was officially launched in September 2021. At present, the Crust mainnet has a total of 2 EB of storage capacity allocated around the world, and 2EB is approximately equal to four million personal computer hard drives. Crust community developers are constantly optimizing the network, and the Crust public chain is now available for commercial use. Community developers have developed Crust Files, Skyekiwi, SwitchSwap, Decoo and other applications based on the underlying Crust.

The next most important task for Crust is to enter the market, allowing more and more people to experience private, cheap, fast, and data ownership-oriented decentralized storage.

Q. Partnership is like a supplement where the combined effect is beyoung the individual level. Can you name some of your recent partnership that can help your project?

Nguyet Le (Quinn): Sure

We have integrated our product on multiple chains and have close relationship with them like Etherium, BSC, Polygon, Solana, Flow, Near, Heco, Elrond etc

Recently we attend the parachain auction on both Polkadot and Kusama and won the 19th slot on Kusama. We also partnered with Moonriver to allow developers to utilize Crust’s decentralized storage capabilities.

We are hosting several dapps like Uniswap, Aave, IPFS, Liquity etc.

Q. Can you introduce the functions and usage scenarios of Crust Files? What are the differences and advantages between it and the cloud service we usually use?

Nguyet Le (Quinn):
Crust Files is the world’s first Web 3.0 personal file storage application, launched by Crust Network. The Crust Files application enables safe storage of your personal files on IPFS, secured by the Crust Network public blockchain.

Crust Files are just like the Google Drive, Dropbox, Baidu Netdisk and so on that you usually use. You can store your life files, photos, and videos here; you can also upload large-size work files and generate links to share with your work partners; or share movies and study materials with your friends.

The biggest difference between Crust Files and traditional cloud service is the underlying network of storage

Centralized storage applications will centrally store users’ files in their computer rooms, while Crust will store users’ files in a distributed manner on the hard disks of nodes around the world.

Therefore, Crust storage can bring users higher data security (no centralized control), faster file pull speed (you can pull files from nearby nodes around the world), and cheaper storage prices (Crust nodes utilize the idle resources of the computer, and the cost is lower than that of a centralized computer room).

Q. As far as I know, people can log in to Crust Files using almost any Web 3.0 address. What features does Crust Files Premium membership have more than ordinary users?

Nguyet Le (Quinn):
Yes, currently using Crust Wallet\ Polkadot (.js Extension)/ MetaMask\ WalletConnect\ Polygon\ Moonriver\ Near Wallet\ Flow (Blocto Wallet) \ Solana (Phantom Wallet)\ Elrond (Maiar Wallet) can log in to Crust Files for free enjoyment File transfer and storage functions.

With a free account, users can enjoy a file size limit of 32mb and 100mb total storage space.
With Crust Files Premium you get access to end-to-end encryption for all your uploads, file size limit is raised to 1gb per file and you get unlimited storage space.

To become a Premium user, you need to have a Crust wallet address (Crust mainnet address), and then stake 5 CRU to your account to enjoy all the premium membership functions. (5 staked CRU can be withdrawn after 180 days)

On the occasion of the New Year, all users can enjoy a 40% discount for the New Year, which means that you only need to stake 3 CRU. If you register through another person’s invitation link, you can get an additional CRU reduction, that is, 2 CRU. You can use the invitation code ‘premium’ to get the discount.

We are doing airdrop of 25,000,000 USD to our early premium users

Q. The SHARE – and – EARN campaign you launched this time has a total of $50,000,000 rewards. How can users get rewards?

Nguyet Le (Quinn):
In order to promote Crust Files and allow more people to join the Web 3.0 storage, we designed three attractive Programs, giving participants a total of $50 million in rewards. The three programs are as follows:

After you become a premium member, you have the right to invite others to try Crust Files. After others register as Crust Files Premium membership through your invitation code/invitation link, you will get 1 CRU/recommendation reward. You can invite unlimited users.

There will be a 30-minute countdown on the event page, and the last premium user at the end of each countdown can get all the rewards in the prize pool. Every time a new premium user is added, the prize pool will increase by 0.4 CRU, and the countdown will be refreshed to 30 minutes.

After becoming a premium member, you can receive a lottery ticket. Whenever the total number of premium members reaches a certain milestone, an open and transparent face lottery will be held. The bigger the milestone, the higher the prize pool! So, don’t forget to return to the Share – and – Earn page frequently after the lottery to see if you are the lucky guy!

we do make a video for you to understand the procedure better

Q. And lastly, How are the rewards withdrawn and do they need to be unlocked? If I want to become a Crust Files Premium member, how can I obtain CRU?

Nguyet Le (Quinn):
If you get rewards through the Share –  and – Earn event, your CRU is released immediately. You can see your rewards at the bottom of this page, click Claim rewards, and you can immediately withdraw your CRU.

You can choose to obtain CRU through decentralized and centralized exchanges. It is recommended to use to purchase Crust Mainnet CRU directly. You can also use the swap function on the Crust official website to directly purchase the mainnet CRU through SWFT ( ).

the step to step guide also can be found in the video above

Q1. Twitter ID: @Stephin63346024

What are the main applications of Crust Network ? Will it support off chain data storage or will all the data be stored on the chain itself ? If the data can be stored off chain , then what type of data will it consist of ?

Nguyet Le (Quinn):
We support off chain data storage, i.e., people can provide storage to get rewarded in our token.

The current APY for providing storage for Crust Network is > 100%

We can store any types of data that google drive can host like image, video, text, etc.

Q2. Twitter ID: @Lidiamga

Crust Network allowing anyone to participate as a storage provider and get the reward from protocol fairly. What are the conditions for becoming a hosting provider? Can you explain how crust network’s reward system works? Are all rewards distributed by CRU?

Nguyet Le (Quinn):
First of all, the reward will be distributed in CRU

To earn the reward, you can become validator or guarantor. Validators would need a certain amount of storage resources while guarantors only require some CRU to stake into our network

The current APY for staking of guarantor is 100% and it is even higher for validator. For details on requirement of validator please check

Q3. Twitter ID: @TheShadowJK_1

Crust Network has recently obtained a Crust Files Premium Membership from Coinmarketcap. Can you explain the benefits of this membership for your platform and users? Will we all be eligible for the benefits that this membership will offer?

Nguyet Le (Quinn):
Here is the benefits of Premium Membership:
– Unlimited permanent storage for your data which larger upload size compared to the trial package
– Encripted vault to store your private data

Right now we are running a big incentive program for our early premium users, where our premium users can get the reward for inviting their friends to join premium, and we also have the reward pool of 1,000,000 CRU to airdrop for our premium users.

Q. Is CRUST network designed to be beneficial to NON CRYPTO users. Is this project non-crypto users friendly. ?

Nguyet Le (Quinn):
To store your data on Crust, you will need to create a Crust Wallet but you don’t need anything more than that

the way you use it is as simple as using google drive

and create a wallet is even more simple than create a google account

so my answer is, Yes, Crust is non-crypto users friendly 😊

Q. Sharding is the best method to store files. In Sharding, FastDFS and IPFS are used. Is Crust compatible with both the FastDFS and IPFS file protocols? Does Crust Network support shard storage orders for large files across nodes by initiating shard storage orders?

Nguyet Le (Quinn):
Currently the max size you can upload with premium package is 1 Gb, but we are working on it to make the size larger

in fact, we are hosting many dapps which requires huge storage like Aave, Uniswap, etc in a decentralized way

Q. How can users stay up to date with this project? Are there channels, including local communities, where users can get the latest updates?

Q. My important question
Where can I buy your tokens now. What are your current contracts, and how can I buy them and what are the benefits What could be your plan?

Nguyet Le (Quinn):
Our token has been listed on several exchanges like, bitmart, huobi, uniswap etc And you can just use our developed swap which allows you to buy on ERC20 or BSC and transfer to your Crust wallet at a very low fee

Q. Can you list 1-3 killer features of this project that makes it ahead of its competitors? What is the competitive advantage your project has that you feel most confident about?

Nguyet Le (Quinn):
1. Our UI, UX is very user-friendly. It’s as easy as using google drive to store your personal data

2. You can access your files anytime (no retrieval time) from anywhere in the world. And you don’t have to pay for retrieval like Filecoin

3. We are not developing just one single products, but we are building an ecosystem on our network, to make it a one-stop shop when people need storage
