Arweave is a decentralized storage system that makes it possible to store data in a permanent manner.
The Arweave website says that:
“As a collectively owned hard drive that never forgets, Weave allows us to remember and preserve valuable information, apps, and history indefinitely. By preserving history, it prevents others from rewriting it.”
The permanent web built by the network enables independent contributors to build and store in a decentralized platform and also get rewarded while doing it. The essence is to prevent the depreciation and degrading of data stored on the traditional web space.
