🧐What is CESS

In this article, we will delve into the what, why, and how of CESS, exploring its features and benefits.


CESS is a decentralized data value network designed with a holistic three-layer architecture. Our network architecture integrates a decentralized cloud storage network and a CD²N, offering highly customizable solutions for decentralized data storage and real-time sharing, specifically tailored for modern high-frequency dynamic data storage and retrieval needs. We meet enterprise users' demands for massive storage capacity, location-based storage selection (LBSS), hierarchical permission management, and other custom requirements and/or compliance needs.

Supporting applications including but not limited to personalized medicine to decentralized social media and responsible AI, CESS empowers industries with data integrity, privacy, availability and sovereignty.

CESS: Blockchain Powered Distributed Storage and Content Decentralized Delivery Network (CD²N) Infrastructure for Web3.


CESS is the first large-scale, enterprise-level decentralized storage, enabling users to securely store their data in an encrypted format. It utilizes advanced encryption techniques to ensure that only the authorized users can access the data and provide end-to-end privacy and security. CESS is also an open-source and public blockchain intended to be the underlying infrastructure for decentralized storage needs. By leveraging blockchain and peer-to-peer technology, CESS eliminates the need for a centralized authority, making it resistant to censorship and tampering.

Offering the most optimal Web3 solution for storing and retrieving high-frequency dynamic data, CESS reshapes the value distribution and circulation of data assets whilst ensuring data sovereignty and user privacy.

By utilizing a decentralized physical infrastructure network (DePIN) model, CESS drives mass deployment of network nodes globally through incentives.

CESS is also compatible with both EVM and WebAssembly (Wasm). The underlying blockchain framework allows cross-ecosystem, cross-chain applications to use CESS. Its technology stack supports most Web3 applications.

HOW does CESS work?

CESS adopts layered and loosely coupled system architecture, which is divided into CESS Protocol Suite and XESS AI Protocol Suite.

CESS Protocol Suite includes a blockchain service layer, distributed storage resource layer, and distributed content delivery layer.

The XESS AI Protocol Suite leverages advanced AI technologies to enable secure, privacy-preserving collaborative model training across the CESS network.

The Interface provides CLI/RPC/API/SDK interfaces to support data storage service, blockchain service, high-speed content delivery service and AI tools, etc.

CESS guarantees data security and integrity through proprietary technologies with data ownership protection, Proof of Data Reduplication and Recovery (PoDR²), Multi-format Data Rights Confirmation (MDRC), and Proxy Re-encryption Technology (PReT).

CESS leverages blockchain technology to ensure the integrity and security of the data stored within the system. When a user stores data on CESS, it is broken down into smaller encrypted fragments and then distributed across multiple nodes within the network. To access the data, the user needs to authenticate themselves and retrieve the encrypted fragments from the network. The fragments are combined and decrypted locally on the user's device, ensuring that the data is never exposed in its entirety during the retrieval process. This distributed and encrypted storage mechanism provides a high level of security and privacy, safeguarding user's data from unauthorized access.


With the increasing concern around data privacy and security, CESS addresses a critical need in today's digital landscape. Traditional storage solutions expose users' data to vulnerabilities and the risk of unauthorized access. By using CESS, users can regain control over their data, knowing that it is encrypted and stored securely. Additionally, CESS promotes decentralization and empowers individuals by removing the reliance on centralized storage providers. The high performance and reliability can also satisfy the enterprise need on storage requirement.

In conclusion, CESS provides a secure and private storage solution for individuals and organizations, enabling them to regain control over their data. By leveraging blockchain technology and advanced encryption, CESS ensures that data remains inaccessible to unauthorized parties. CESS aligns with the core principles of blockchain and empowers users to protect their data in an increasingly digital world.
