Web3 Decentralized Storage Company W3 Storage Lab Changes Name to Fog Works

W3 Storage Lab announced it has changed its name to Fog Works. The new name better reflects the company’s positioning, has greater brand-building potential, and is more indicative of the company’s vision of being a key builder of Web3 infrastructure, applications, and devices.

The name Fog Works is derived from the term fog computing which was coined by Cisco. Fog computing is an extension of cloud computing: a network architecture where computing and storage is mostly decentralized and pushed to the edge of the network, but a cloud still exists in the center. Web3 is a fully decentralized, blockchain-enabled iteration of the internet. By being entirely decentralized, Web3 is essentially the ultimate fog computing architecture with no cloud in the center.

“Our goal is to make Web3 a reality for everyday consumers,” said Xinglu Lin, CEO of Fog Works. “Because we’re making Web3 work for everyone, the name Fog Works really encapsulates our vision. We’re excited to build a brand around it.”

Fog Works has co-developed a next generation distributed storage ecosystem that is based on the public blockchain, CYFS, and the Datamall Coin. CYFS is a next-generation protocol that re-invents basic Web protocols – TCP/IP, DNS, and HTTP – to create the infrastructure necessary for the complete decentralization of Web3. It has been in development for over seven years, practically eliminates latency in file retrieval – a huge problem with current decentralized storage solutions – and has infinite scalability. Fog Works is developing a series of killer applications for both consumers and enterprises that will use both CYFS and the Datamall Coin, which facilitates a more efficient market for decentralized storage.

To further the development of decentralized applications (dApps) on CYFS, Fog Works is co-sponsoring the CodeDAO Web3 Hackathon. CodeDAO is the world’s first fully decentralized code hosting platform in the world. During the hackathon, developers will compete for prizes by developing dApps using CYFS. Teams will have seven days to develop their projects.
