The Public Onchain Database (POD) is launching today. The idea is to make working with metaverse data more easy and accessible.
POD is a Web3 project that collaborates and manages all metaverse data (metadata) in a single interface for developers, builders, and users.
Any object in the metaverse is essentially metadata. An address, identity, transaction, or NFT all comprise forms of metadata.
There are some pain points of Metadata Management. The key metadata pain points that POD solves are:
- Hard to Find – On-chain data is scattered in contracts on different networks. It’s not yet possible for contracts to obtain all data from one single common environment.
- Hard to Relate – Due to the non-relational storage, it’s hard to trace the relationship between two entities or associate entities with their metadata.
- Hard to Utilize – Each network or app is unique in data transmission methodology. Thus, data from different sources have to be pre-processed before they can work in tandem.
There are also benefits for Data Providers. They can increase data searchability; provide data conformity system; empower NFT with infinite expandability.
And benefits for Data Consumers as quick access to multi-chain data; easy data category definition and tags for data management.
POD’s goal is to bring different parties together and establish a collaborative dialogue to inspire the decentralized community. Together, POD can arrive at an agreed-upon data collaboration standard in an organic, bottom-up manner.
