3 min readDec 21, 2022

Polkadex has partnered with Crust Network on a decentralized data storage solution for Polkadex Orderbook. As the Polkadot parachain auction #30 winner, Crust Network, the Web3 data storage protocol built on Substrate, is also a fellow parachain on Polkadot.

Designed to realize the three core values of decentralization, privacy, and assurance, Crust exposes instantly accessible on-chain storage functions to users and supports multiple storage-layer protocols such as IPFS.

“We are delighted to provide Web3 native and fully decentralized backup storage solutions for Polkadex Orderbook and are looking forward to realize more use cases with the Pokadex team in the future” said Ludwig T., BD lead at Crust Network,

IPFS is an important piece of the puzzle that is the Polkadex Orderbook architecture. While not currently integrated, the plan is for Polkadex Orderbook to use IPFS as a way to frequently ‘screenshot’ the data of the Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) and act as sort of backup if the TEE were to fail.

Crust Network will help Polkadex store Polkadex Orderbook’s off-chain user data on IPFS thus ensuring the availability and sufficient decentralization of the data.

“This partnership will be a win for decentralization,” said Gautham J, CEO and Co-Founder of Polkadex. “An integration with Crust will ensure a higher degree of decentralization of the TEE’s IPFS off-chain snapshots and increase the security and redundancy of Polkadex Orderbook.”
