As an EEA member, 0Chain is part of the EEA community of organizations working to advance Ethereum and drive industry adoption. In the Q&A below, the EEA interviewed Head of Partnerships Adrian Corcoran, about how 0Chain is contributing to the ecosystem to help Ethereum reach its full potential.

Please introduce your company and yourself briefly.
I am Head of Partnerships for 0Chain, working alongside a great team. We work on all blockchain collaborations, integrations, and partnership development within the enterprise market space.

0Chain is an enterprise-grade, decentralized cloud storage solution. It is a high-speed (finality speed sub 1< second), low-cost ($0.01 per GB), General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and California Consumers Protection Act (CCPA)-compliant solution with unparalleled privacy, security, transparency, and performance.

What first brought you to the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance, and why did you decide to become a member?

We felt the EEA was doing a phenomenal job with education surrounding Ethereum and once we delved deeper into the interest and working groups, it quickly became apparent we wanted to be a member and play an active role.

Furthermore, being able to converse on industry challenges, business models, and ideas surrounding our protocol with EEA’s esteemed members — in blockchain and enterprise — was a great resource and opportunity.

What are you currently working on with regards to Ethereum? How will end-users benefit from your work?

We have recently completed our NFT Storage Protocol and our Simple Storage Device (S3), InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) and Fuse migration repositories.

Ultimately, from an NFT storage perspective, end-users will benefit from a multi-payer pool for storage permanency, with the understanding that their newly purchased NFT has a pre-paid time period for storage (NFT MarketPlace) before the buyer takes ownership and pre-pays their own storage allocation for their newly purchased NFT.

In addition, we have also created a mutable NFT Storage for Video LiveStream which will permit pay-per-view events for artists and creators to monetize their work through a direct business-to-consumer transaction, enabling them to have complete control and generate direct revenue.

Our migration tools for S3, IPFS and Fuse will allow current users of the aforesaid protocols to migrate their data storage by utilizing the toolkit they are currently familiar with in a simple onboarding process.

How will the EEA enhance your organization’s current efforts?

The EEA provides an exceptional platform for collaboration through its great number of interest and working groups and broad set of like-minded members within blockchain and enterprise.

What EEA programs are you most excited about?

We are excited about working with the EEA’s Mainnet Interest Group on a number of educational papers regarding our pioneering, “high-speed,” decentralized data cloud storage and its capabilities to be continually used within Enterprise versus IPFS or Archival dStorage layers.

We are also looking forward to producing a number of papers within the DeFi Interest Group surrounding block storage, indexing, and the differentials between 0Chain and IPFS and Archival Storage layers.

Finally, we are very excited to be a member and contribute across the aforesaid groups which will hopefully lead towards us developing a new interest group centered around decentralized data cloud storage.
