As the only EVM-compatible decentralized storage solution, Storjs adoption of zkSync will greatly reduce gas fees, driving growth and innovation throughout the decentralized ecosystem.
Atlanta, GA – WEBWIRE – Tuesday, May 30, 2023
Storj, the leader in enterprise-grade, globally distributed cloud object storage, today announced its collaboration with Matter Labs zkSync Era, a layer 2 blockchain protocol that unlocks scalable and low-cost transactions on Ethereum. With increasing demand for decentralized storage solutions, zkSync Eras zero-knowledge rollup implementation will allow Storj to perform faster and more secure transactions, reducing gas fees and making the payment process swifter and more efficient.
As a Layer 2 protocol and ZK-rollup, zkSync Era enables the aggregation of multiple transactions into a single, compressed data structure that can be verified on-chain, allowing for a much higher transaction throughput compared to traditional Layer 1 (L1) solutions. This results in lower costs, faster confirmation times, and ultimately increases the scalability and efficiency of decentralized systems like Storj.
The adoption of zkSync within the Storj community has been strong, and we are committed to supporting the zkSync Era developer ecosystem with our open source tools, said Storj CEO Ben Golub. Zero-knowledge rollups for lower gas payments means that Storj can provide users and our community of nodes with an optimal transaction experience, while continuing to lead as a trailblazer in the field of decentralized infrastructure technologies.
To showcase the capabilities of zkSync Era to the wider Ethereum community, Storj will be maintaining two additional open-source libraries: Crypto-Batch-Payment and Storjscan. The focus will be on creating a seamless onboarding experience for Storjs decentralized cloud storage customers and nodes onto the zkSync Era network. The collaboration will also facilitate EVM-compatible composability for decentralized storage payments, providing customers with more flexibility and customization options.
Its exciting to see projects like Storj improve the overall scalability of their network for decentralized applications by bringing fast, secure, and more affordable decentralized storage to more people worldwide by integrating with zkSync Era” said Marco Cora, Head of Business Development, Matter Labs.
Storj is the only EVM-compatible decentralized storage solution, providing customers with a unique and customizable storage experience. By embracing EIP-4844 and rollup-centric upgrades to Ethereum, Storj is poised to take its offering of decentralized, EVM-compatible storage to the next level with zkSync Era. The company is committed to providing its users with a fast, secure, and efficient decentralized storage solution, and the adoption of zkSync Era is a major step in that direction.

eDriving(SM), a Solera company and leading global provider of digital driver risk management solutions, today announced a partnership with Greater Than (GREAT:ST), the global provider of technology that converts GPS data into powerful insights and driver scores. Through the collaboration, eDriving will integrate Greater Than’s EcoScore into a new feature in its award-winning digital driver safety app Mentor(SM). The new feature, to be named EcoDrive powered by Greater Than, enables eDriving to further support its global clients in achieving their sustainability goals.
Revolutionising driver risk management for over 25 years, eDriving is the trusted partner of choice for many of the world’s largest sales, service, and delivery fleets, supporting over 1.2 million drivers in 125 countries with award-winning digital driver risk management and safety solutions. eDriving’s smartphone-based Mentor programme identifies and remediates drivers’ risky habits behind the wheel with training, coaching, and gamification, achieving up to an 89% reduction in risky driver behaviour over 18 months.
The integration of Greater Than’s EcoScore is a strategic step for eDriving to elevate the sustainability benefits of Mentor for their customers on a global scale by contributing to carbon footprint reductions of up to 20%. In addition, the EcoScore facilitates more accurate Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) reporting with harmonised data on an organisation’s CO2 emissions and savings.
“Our customers are keen to take ownership of their climate impact and help their drivers minimise their CO2 emissions as well as safely return home to their loved ones at the end of each workday. This exciting new partnership between eDriving and Greater Than will help to accelerate that goal,” said Ed Dubens, CEO/Founder of eDriving. “Greater Than’s EcoScore is yet another example of how eDriving’s Mentor ecosystem brings together the best of the best into one world-class solution focused on driver risk management, safety and sustainability. FICO’s Safe Driving Score, Sfara’s Collision Detection, Bosch’s Emergency Response Services, and now Greater Than’s EcoScore continue to evolve and sustain Mentor’s unique value proposition supporting the world’s largest enterprise organisations.”
Mentor’s EcoDrive powered by Greater Than will incorporate Greater Than’s unique pattern-AI technology which conducts real-time driving analysis to calculate CO2 emissions per individual driver. With a uniform measure of environmental impact, EcoDrive powered by Greater Than enables fair, transparent, unbiased evaluation of individual drivers’ eco performance, regardless of vehicle type or global location. Drivers will be able to see carbon emissions reported in grams and percentages following each trip on their Mentor dashboard, making it the perfect sustainability analysis and reporting tool for organisations with mixed vehicle types.
“We are very excited that eDriving is introducing its new EcoDrive feature based on our EcoScore to its Mentor customers. Our partnership is another proof of the scope of use for our DriverDNA AI analysis. With EcoScore integrated into the Mentor app, eDriving customers will have greater control over their environmental impact and the necessary insights to reduce them, as well as valuable data of absolute CO2 emissions to facilitate comprehensive sustainability reporting, which looks set to be mandatory for many companies in coming years,” said Liselott Johansson, CEO, Greater Than.
EcoDrive powered by Greater Than will be available in eDriving’s flagship Mentor business solutions, as well as Mentor Defender, eDriving’s newest app for individuals and family members, distributed through insurers, auto safety membership organisations and driving schools.

In March 2021, the company entered DeFi with Muse.Finance, a DeFi platform, and will continue to expand into the DeFi business.
Meanwhile, Polygon is a decentralized Ethereum scaling platform that enables developers to build scalable user-friendly dApps with low transaction fees without ever sacrificing on security.

Moonstake is pleased to announce that we’ve integrated our DeFi application partner, Muse Finance (shortened as Muse), into the Web Wallet to bring advanced DeFi connectivity to our platform. This means that directly through the Moonstake wallet interface, you can now participate in Muse’s current lockdrops and use the DeFi applications that Muse plans to implement in the future. This will be the first time in the world that Muse will be integrated. Since the announcement of our joint entrance to DeFi in March 2021, we have been working together closely to develop and promote high-quality DeFi products that aim to resolve staking illiquidity.
Moonstake launched its staking business in 2020 with the aim to create the largest staking network in Asia. Since then, it has developed the most user-friendly Web Wallet and Mobile Wallet (iOS/Android) with support for over 2000 cryptocurrencies. After a full-scale operation launched in August 2020, Moonstake’s total staking assets have grown rapidly to reach $1 Billion, allowing Moonstake to become one of the top 5 staking providers globally.

Muse is a comprehensive DeFi platform launched in March 2021. It is working to launch various DeFi products, including a Wrapper to issue wrapped tokens for staking assets that can be used to provide liquidity to staked assets, as well as DEX (decentralized exchange) and Lending platforms to facilitate the distribution of such assets.
A feature of Muse already implemented in the Moonstake wallet is lockdrop. Lockdrop is a common, low-risk method of token distribution mechanism in the DeFi industry without raising money while incentivizing user participation. Instead of combining the sale of tokens with assets, lockdrop sees “loss of opportunity” as collateral and distributes tokens in return for valuable losses.

Furthermore, users can also utilize the affiliate program to earn extra referral rewards by inviting others to participate in the lockdrop.
The connection with DeFi products, which has been growing strong since last year, will further enhance the user experience of Moonstake platform. Future product launches of Muse will add liquidity to the staking assets and open the door to innovative DeFi products, all of which will be supported by Moonstake as usual.
Moonstake was recently established to develop a staking pool protocol to satisfy increasing demands in regional and global blockchain markets. Moonstake develops a staking pool protocol and provides business services through partners and companies.
