Enabling a new Internet
Arweave provides a new serverless internet infrastructure, one based on decentralisation and the permanent availability of pages.
Because of the blockweave data structure, each page on the Arweave is cryptographically linked to every other page, making its modification or loss impossible.
Due to the innovative new technologies upon which the network is based, Arweave is the first cryptocurrency that can reach internet scale.
By allowing Arweave to be spread across many computers, a network is created that is as secure and verifiable as all of its predecessors, but can flexibly scale to provide the amount of storage the network requires.
A platform for permanent apps
Arweave has been built from the ground up as a platform for a new class of permanence based, decentralised applications.
The Arweave makes permanent data storage available to any developer, in any programming language, through a simple HTTP interface. Arweave storage can be seamlessly integrated into apps, both old and new.
