Ecosystem Education

  1. Bundlr article: Bundlr is the only solution to the Provenance Trilemma.

    • The Provenance Trilemma represents the trade-offs that the original source layer had to make in the past. It describes the balance between data permanence, precision, and unconstraint.

    • Bundlr becomes the exclusive solution to the Provenance Trilemma, fulfilling every aspect of it and providing robust traceability for data.

    • Bundlr's data is stored permanently on Arweave, with precise timestamps and attributes. Reading, writing, and verifying data are unrestricted, completely unconstrained.


  2. Mind Network educates about maintaining data privacy when using machine learning models.

    • Focus on introducing zero-knowledge machine learning (ZKML) and privacy-preserving machine learning (PPML).

    • ZKML uses cryptographic proof to assure users of model accuracy while keeping its parameters confidential. It's like unlocking valuable insights without revealing the treasure map!

    • On the other hand, PPML injects noise into the data, adding a touch of mystery to the data, making it impossible to identify individual data points. It's like using a secret cloak to conceal your information!

    • These cutting-edge technologies have a revolutionary impact on protecting data privacy in machine learning applications, acting as guardians.


  3. Akord releases a self-made Web3 glossary covering over 180 terms.

    • The Web3 glossary is alphabetically sorted from A to Z, encompassing explanations for over 180 terms.

    • Whether you're a beginner or a blockchain expert, the Web3 glossary always has something to learn from.



  1. Sam tweets: Web3 is about building a cyberspace that guarantees and improves user rights.

    • Sam criticizes the viewpoint that "web3 is vibes," interpreting it as "I am here to get fat off VC money and try to look cool at yacht parties."

    • He emphasizes, "Web3 is about building a cyberspace that guarantees and improves user rights. Everything else is noise."


  2. Frank (Web3 Comm. Manager) tweets 10 reasons to choose WeaveDB.

    • Reasons include fast query performance, cheap permanent storage, prepaid gas fees, cross-chain crypto authentication, decentralized API, cross-chain data bridge, data encryption, scalability, built-in decentralized indexer, and scheduled tasks.


Web3 is booming, and Arweave is becoming a popular infrastructure choice for developers. PermaDAO is a community where everyone can contribute to the Arweave ecosystem. It's a place to propose and tackle tasks related to Arweave, with the support and feedback of the entire community. Join PermaDAO and help shape Web3!
