ArDrive - Now a Complete Solution to Get Started with Arweave
The latest ArDrive 2.6 update brings ArDrive closer to being an all-in-one solution for both individuals and businesses wanting to tap into the power of Arweave.

And that's not all!
ArDrive Turbo: Simplified Payments and Faster File Confirmations
If you've ever used the free 500KB uploads that ArDrive offers, you've already experienced a taste of what ArDrive Turbo has to offer. With this service, users can now bypass complex exchange or swap procedures, avoid KYC protocols, and choose to use Credits for saving data to Arweave.
Traditionally, when uploading to Arweave, users would pay the network in AR tokens (the native Arweave token). However, ArDrive Turbo leverages trusted payment provider Stripe, and allows users to purchase credits to be used for those network payments.
ArDrive Turbo brings a new level of convenience to the permaweb, enhancing speed and finality at the gateway. Users no longer need to wait for file uploads (transactions) to confirm on Arweave. Instead, data is guaranteed to be uploaded (and retrieved) from the permaweb faster than ever before.
ArDrive Turbo has a proven track record as an enterprise-grade uploading solution for users and builders of all scales in the Arweave ecosystem. With the upgrades we're releasing today to both the ArDrive apps and the Turbo services stack, we're introducing a new wave of frictionless user experiences and coding tools to further our mission of getting permanent data storage into the hands of everyone- Ariel Melendez, ArDrive CTO
Why Rely on Big Tech When ArDrive is Available?
With ArDrive, users don't need to worry about sudden changes in terms and conditions, unexpected subscription price hikes, account closure due to inactivity, or data loss during server transfers. ArDrive offers a decentralised and secure alternative that puts users ahead of the curve.
Traditional cloud storage methods are being reevaluated due to the rise of blockchain technology.
Blockchain storage uses a distributed ledger to store data. Unlike the centralized services, data here is stored across a network of nodes worldwide. This distributed approach increases the resilience and security of data storage. Arweave's permaweb embodies this new data storage paradigm, and ArDrive 2.6 makes it more accessible. Users can now tap into the power of permaweb without any technical expertise.
