Arweave is a decentralized data storage solution aiming to ensure that all the data is easily available and accessible indefinitely.
This network is the basis for what its team calls the "permaweb" — a permanent decentralized web that hosts several community-driven applications and platforms. The AR token is used to reward miners who share and save all that data and to pay to store any new data.
