05.07.2022

Today we’re excited to announce that Kamu has been selected for the first batch of the Filecoin Faber Accelerator.

As one of the top Web3 accelerators in Europe, it puts our team in close contact with technical experts and mentors from Protocol Labs (developers of IPFS and Filecoin), Metamask, Maker DAO, and many other leading companies in the space.

With the support from Faber and Protocol Labs we will be further developing our decentralized data pipeline technology focusing on the issues of:

  • Supplying external data to Blockchain Smart Contracts
  • Lowering the complexity and costs of participating in Web3 data economy for small data publishers and increasing the data supply
  • Combining on-chain and off-chain data for analytics
  • Collaborative creation of trustworthy and real-time data feeds.

Stay tuned for many exciting blog posts on these topics and new releases of kamu-cli. Join us on Discord to follow and participate in the development.
