Phala Network, a Polkadot-based project focused on data privacy preserving protocol, has announced a partnership with Bluzelle. They have chosen Bluzelle’s decentralized database as one of their off-chain data storage solutions for their main product, Web3 Analytics (winner of Web3 Foundation Grant).

Everytime when you are browsing a mobile app or website, your data and footprints are collected and stored in a centralized server.

Through W3A’s smart contract, developers can run analytics approved by data owners without compromising their privacy.

This shares the same mission as Bluzelle to protect data privacy and security. We are both playing critical roles in the advancement and adoption of Web 3.0. Bluzelle is a decentralized data network that enables blockchains and dapps to manage data in a secure, tamper-proof, and highly scalable manner. Bluzelle is powered by Cosmos and its BFT technology Tendermint and is designed to be interoperable for any blockchains. We will provide Phala with these benefits:
