Welcome to an exciting moment in Tableland's journey. The majority of DePINs (Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Networks) are searching for better solutions for organizing, verifying, and using data across their networks. Today, we're excited to announce a partnership with DIMO and WeatherXM to tackle this problem head-on. Both projects have collaborated with us to develop and now rigorously test a Tableland solution for verifiable, real-time databases in the Web3 ecosystem. Let's dive in.
Happy Birthday SQLite! SQLite 1.0 was released 23 years ago today, so to celebrate this momentous occasion, join us on an exciting quest as we blend the old with the new, the familiar with the cutting-edge, and dare to dream of a future where edge databases and content addressable storage work together.
Tableland developers can now build on Filecoin! We actually added Filecoin FEVM support a couple of months ago, but we wanted to dive into this in a bit more detail since it opens up a ton of new possibilities that weren’t available before. One demonstrated example is the Rigs NFT with Filecoin deals for its assets, which it described in more detail below.
Over the past few months, Tableland has been experimenting with quite a lot! One particular focus was thinking more broadly about token reputation, even so far as considering authoring an EIP that extends the base ERC-721. Ultimately, we’re sticking with our current design due to a few reasons that we’ll touch on, but we felt it was still worthwhile sharing the research! Generally, you can think of NFTs as a proxy for reputation.
Blockchain technology has introduced game-changing primitives, but high gas fees and latency in blockchain-based dapps pose challenges for mass adoption. To solve this, Tableland has created a decentralized web3 native SQL database, enabling builders to create advanced web3 experiences. We're excited to launch support for Arbitrum Nova, unlocking ultra low-cost transactions with strong security guarantees for users to interact with their favorite dapps and games with ease.
