What is Akord?
Akord is a data storage and collaboration product, leveraging the Arweave blockchain to store data and all transactions. Data is end-to-end encrypted with files and messages organised into vaults.
How is Akord different?
By offering permanent storage we provide a 'pay once, store forever' solution. While there are other products that also provide data storage on Arweave, Akord has some key differentiating features.
  1. 1.
    Super simple to pay for permanent storage with your credit card. Many other blockchain products require specific wallets and tokens. When you sign up with Akord you create your AKord wallet, and when you need to pay for storage it's simpler than an Amazon order.
  2. 2.
    A secure space to collaborate with others and messaging with end-to-end encryption. We believe if you want to store something permanently it's because it has a social dimension - value for others. So we provide the tools to facilitate that process.
  3. 3.
    A focus on user experience with a web3, decentralised vision. Many Dapps suffer from poor user experience and performance issues. We've started by focusing on the best UX possible, and have carefully roadmapped our pathway to becoming a fully decentralised app (Dapp).
