The functionality in this release will allow clients to share encrypted files via a cool technique called macaroons. As part of the Vanguard release, we are still sending invitations to developers who joined the waitlist to store data on the V3 network. If you would like early access to store data on the V3 network, please make sure to sign up on our waitlist.

The Vanguard 1 Satellite holds the record for being in space longer than any other man-made object. Launched by NASA in 1958, the satellite is expected to remain in orbit for more than 200 years into the future. Its durability and resilience has been the inspiration behind our Vanguard release. Just like the Vanguard 1 satellite, our team is working towards building a decentralized and distributed object storage solution capable of withstanding the test of time and outliving its creators.
