Every day, businesses and people are creating and consuming more and more data.
All the sudden, the photo and video albums on our mobile phones can scroll back a decade, while businesses like accounting firms have millions or billions of files they are obligated to save (and keep paying for), but will likely never view again.
Today, the cloud storage market is valued at over $70B and expected to be over $220B by 2027. The reason for this rapid market growth is both the amount of data created each year, but also the fact that consumers and businesses have been conditioned to pay for data storage month after month, year after year.
ArDrive sees a different path forward. Pay once, store forever.
Web3 is a large and complex world of which most people have seen a relatively small slice of what is possible. People know about cryptocurrencies, but are not aware of the day-to-day functions that crypto is bringing with its underlying blockchain technology to help the average person.
That is one of the reasons we are so excited about launching ArDrive Mobile – putting the power of the blockchain into the pockets of the everday person.
ArDrive Mobile is the first permanent, decentralized storage app that you can have on your phone. It is a big step in the direction of not only allowing people to save their files permanently, but allowing them to see what else blockchain can do.
It is putting the power of blockchain into the pockets of the everyday person.
“ArDrive deleted the delete button. We use the power of Arweave, a globally-distributed blockchain network, to save files permanently and with full censorship-resistance.
Under the hood, your file is cryptographically sealed, distributed around the world in a permissionless network, and available for generations. Crypto news usually only talks about decentralized finance, but permanent data is one of the most promising developments in crypto. ArDrive Mobile makes it easy to see the next horizon of the blockchain.”
—Phil Mataras, ArDrive Founder

The open source ArDrive platform is built on the Arweave blockchain, which provides permanent, tamper-proof storage for any type of digital data. For a deeper dive into the underlying Arweave tech see this Gemini article or to understand what makes Arweave different from other blockchain storage solutions let this Goldman Sachs analyst explain.
Leveraging Arweave’s permanence and simplicity, ArDrive Mobile ensures your important files will never be deleted. And while your ArDrive files are fully encrypted and secure, you choose at any time to share them publicly.
It’s time to start thinking about storge differently. With ArDrive Mobile, your photos, videos, and files will be accessible throughout your entire life and those of your children and grandchildren.
