StorX Network Becomes the Answer to XDSea Marketplace’s Storage Needs

Decentralized Storage Provider StorX Network has joined hands with NFT Marketplace XDSea on a partnership set to eliminate IPFS based centralized storage. Under the terms of the collaboration, it follows that XDSea will leverage StorX decentralized storage network as a store for their art, images, and documents. We are thrilled to announce the Partnership between @StorXNetwork and @XDSeaNFT.XDSea will use Storx decentralized storage network to store art, images, and documents. This will remove file storage centralized using ipfs.#StorX #SRX #partnership https://t.co/zfM7asYJaz — StorX Network (@StorXNetwork) March 3, 2022 Standing as the first-ever, and largest P2P decentralized marketplace in the world to provide an avenue for selling and buying NFTs, XDSea is built atop the XDC Network and runs on the XRC blockchain. The collaboration and expected offerings are a testament to the numerous promises made by DIMO and XinFin who hosted the official debut of the XDSea network. From being the first NFT marketplace to join the XRC blockchain, and now offering safer and more reliable storage for digital collectibles, the possibilities remain endless for XDSea. Already XDSea is reputed for its game-changing role offering very affordable gas fees in the market today thanks to its association with XinFin. Beyond that, it also offers the lowest transaction fees in the market today. By meeting users at the junction linking gas fees, transaction fees and now security, XDC is a game-changer in an extremely agile and dynamic industry. Competitive features of StorX Network’s Decentralized Cloud StorX Network has revolutionized data storage, providing a blockchain-based decentralized cloud storage solution. This solution evades tracking, censorship, blocking, or the presence of any downtime whatsoever. With these offerings, StorX leads netizens to a safer and more secure internet version where decentralization is the theme. XDSea is the first among many who are poised to leverage this future. With this partnership, XDSea intends to leverage StorX decentralized storage for the safe storage of NFTs in the range of art, images and documents; an action that will eliminate the centralization element of storing files characteristic of IPFS. IPFS is basically the hard drive of blockchain with a specific approach for data storage. IPFS stores data in such a way that when data is added to the IPFS network, the network splits it into groups of 256Kb capacities. Each group is identifiable using a specific hash and is thereafter spread across multiple nodes on the hash-linked networks. StorX is safer than IPFS While both use transport encryption, StorX offers more security thanks to its content-encryption property. While user data is safer when being sent between individual IPFS nodes, that data is accessible to anyone who wishes to download and view it provided they have the CID. StorX enhances security by providing the content-encryption property. Moreover, the XDSea will benefit from, among other privileges offered by StorX, the assurance of offering users a safer and more reliable storage network for their digital collectibles on the cloud. With this collaboration, XDSea, therefore, expects to deliver a safer and more unregulated storage experience for its esteemed user community so that they can design and develop their valuable NFTs on the open-source NFT Marketplace, XDSea. Notably, the partnership makes for a notable milestone for StorX, positioning them as the first storage provider to collaborate with XDC NFT marketplace for purposes of solving their storage needs. The mechanics hold that every file that a user uploads on StorX is split into multiple parts before encryption into several fragments and finally stored within independent storage nodes. The nodes are run by different operators located in various parts of the world. The hallmark of StorX network’s offering centers on the fact that the system is designed as a group of autonomous storage networks. This means that there is no one operator who holds total access to the data belonging to a single user. With different parts held by different operators, the amount of power or influence held by a single holder is therefore significantly reduced to an almost invaluable minimum, hence enhanced user security. #XDCNFT are coming to the #XDCNetwork. It is still early days but new artists, fans and innovators are rapidly joining the #XDC community. Buckle up, this space is about to explode! pic.twitter.com/YjvilI4Nox — PiusVirXDC (@PiusVir) March 21, 2022

Tag Template - News Hub PRO

Singapore, Mar 21, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Infocus International Group has introduced the brand new online workshop - Renewable Power Finance for Non-Finance Professionals and it will be commencing live on the 20th of April 2022.

Tag Template - News Hub PRO

This popular course is intended as a time-efficient primer for those from a non-financial background, who wish to better "read" financial models & analyses presented to them, and to understand the variables which most influence renewable power project investment decisions.

Attendees will receive clear explanations of the common elements of a power project financial model, the key terminologies, and the changing economic and market context in which renewable power business plans must exist (and create financial returns).

The course will highlight the key financial inputs and outputs, without swamping those who lack a financial background in unnecessary detail or complexity. It will thus enable people from a variety of non-finance job roles - from engineering to project development to marketing - to better understand how economic and investment considerations influence, and are influenced by, their own activities.

A provided Excel cash flow model plus numerous other handouts will help with revision and cementation of learning long after the course has been completed.

Course Sessions

1. 'Reading' a project cash flow model
2. Risks, returns, and the costs of finance
3. The changing value of electricity
4. Power project business cases and profitability

Among the key points to be addressed

- Learn to speak the language of finance, to better interact with investors and business case developers
- Understand how to 'read' a financial analysis sheet, without being swamped by the minutiae and detail
- Take away an Excel cash flow sheet which you can use to revise and solidify your learning
- Learn how project risks feed through to financing costs and energy price competitiveness
- Analyse which internal project variables and external market factors are most important to financial outcomes
- Explore the financial considerations of trends such as multiple revenue streams and energy storage
- Examine the balances of risks and returns, at various stages in a project's life cycle
- Understand the relevance of metrics such as 'LCOE', 'WACC' & 'DSCR' in business planning
- Quantify how key market trends are impacting renewable power business cases, risks and returns
