Partnership updates

Züs (formerly 0Chain) is pleased to announce a partnership with API3 to enhance GDPR-compliant decentralized storage with privacy and security on its network. API3’s Airnode is a serverless oracle node that is operated by API providers. It acts as a gateway between traditional Web APIs and smart contracts running on blockchains, connecting smart contracts to real-world data. In this way, data providers can sell their API-delivered data and services to blockchain-based applications on Web 3.0.

The combination of the first ever fully GDPR-Compliant Oracle Node with Züs’ enterprise-grade cloud storage solution with GDPR / CCPA Compliance and Audit Trail is a perfect match aligned with regulatory compliance.

Heikki Vänttinen, Co-Founder API3, states that “the privacy and compliance-first design of Züs is highly complementary to Airnode’s first party, GDPR compliant design. We are excited to work together, and this partnership will help dApps access high performance decentralized storage, while still meeting the security and regulatory requirements necessary for enterprise usage”

Through this integration, Züs’ GDPR-compliant decentralized storage will be available with all blockchains connected to Airnode through API3’s multi-chain approach. Using API3’s network, Züs will also provide data on storage pricing and data metadata, enabling developers and data providers to leverage Züs’ data storage platform for high-performant data storage.

Mo Siam, Züs COO, explains “through this exciting partnership, Züs will leverage API3’s multi-layer, cross platform data solution to provide global data storage prices to Züs’ Enterprise and Corporate client base.

leveraging API3’s airnode solution; dynamically and transparently priced cloud storage as offered by Züs bare metal servers will soon be available for developers to index and reference. Developers and solution architects will soon be able to know what’s the storage in London or Singapore or any city that has Züs coverage via an API call. Furthermore, Züs will provide a low-cost, high-speed data storage layer with unlimited availability for an ever-growing dApps community.

Altogether with about 3PB and 150 storage servers coming online over 20 countries in the next few weeks; dynamic cloud pricing visibility via api calls will create a new marketplace for storage providers on the edge.”
