Fog Works has launched its first major product, Foggie, which they claim to be the world’s first all-in-one Web3 virtual appliance. Foggie combines a range of Web3 features that offer real-world benefits to developers and consumers. It aims to be an essential on-ramp for Web2 consumers who are interested in exploring Web3. Xinglu Lin, CEO of Fog Works, believes that Foggie is the first product to deliver true value to everyday consumers by empowering them to be custodians of their own data.
Foggie is a virtual appliance that offers several functionalities. It allows users to accelerate IPFS content, store and back up data in a decentralized manner, serve content like a web server, own and sell digital assets, serve dApps and store data generated by them, and even earn crypto rewards. These capabilities make Foggie a versatile tool for individuals looking to engage with the Web3 ecosystem.
Foggie utilizes the CYFS protocol, a next-generation Web3 protocol that enables complete decentralization of applications and replaces traditional internet protocols like HTTP, TCP/IP, and DNS. It also leverages the Datamall Chain, a blockchain that creates an efficient marketplace for decentralized storage, and the Datamall Coin ($DMC), a token that reflects the value of decentralized storage.
Foggie will be available through monthly subscriptions, starting at $14.99 per month. The subscriptions will include vCPU, dedicated RAM, Web3 data storage, and Web3 dApps. The product will be launched on November 25th and will be available worldwide.
