The filecoin launchpad accelerated camp, supported by Tachyon, hosted a day to showcase 13 startups’ more interoperable, open programming tools, applications, and infrastructure for decentralized networks. Thirteen teams from 11 countries participated in a 12 week immersive project connecting IPFs, filecoin and Ethereum communities. This article introduces “enterprise application” start-up projects: myel, valist, powerroom, and kotal.
Community driven content distribution network (CDN)
What is myel?
Myel( http://myel.network/ ）It provides distributed CDN for Web3 applications, enabling applications to obtain the content of filecoin from the secondary market at a faster speed.
What can myel do?
The demand for bandwidth of web applications is growing. Emerging technologies such as VR, which require expensive infrastructure and slow expansion, are difficult to meet future needs. In addition, to use filecoin in addition to cold storage, a secondary market is needed to accelerate content acquisition. Currently, there is no decentralized CDN for Web3 applications. Most applications rely on web2 CDN, which is a potential source of single point of failure.
We make it easier for applications to access content stored on filecoin without having to build expensive infrastructure. Binding CDN service and storage together, users can pay fil directly.

Make secure code signing and global software distribution easy.
Valist( http://valist.io/ ）Let developers release software and firmware to distributed storage network, supplemented by strong access control. At the same time, valist widely supports the integration of existing package managers, such as NPM and pip, and docker (there will be more).
What can valist do?
At present, most Web3 tools are still distributed through web2, and valist is changing this situation while still providing a bridge back to web2. This will eliminate single points of failure, such as certification authorities, centralized access control systems, and cloud providers.
Valist supports “multi factor publishing” – that is, multi signature of software publishing, that is, publishing a software package requires multiple developers or build servers to sign before publishing. This reduces the chance of attacks on the software supply chain, such as the intrusion of the build server, or the theft of the developer’s key to release malware.
Instead of relying on centralized cloud providers and fragile access control systems, valist enables you to publish software securely using the Web3 infrastructure. Valist is bringing many of the most popular Web3 and web2 packages to the filecoin ecosystem. Some of the software that today’s world relies on is maintained by specific third parties. Valist will reduce this dependence.
How to learn more about valist?
Valist is currently building a command line interface to provide the first level of CI / CD support. Soon, users will be able to plug valist into their GitHub actions, gitlab runners or their current software distribution pipeline and publish the software directly to the Web3 network. There is no need to customize the background or set up storage!

Extensible trust as the first verification source language.
What is powerroom?
PowerLoom( http://powerloom.io/ ）The protocol aggregates the data on and off the chain, and generates the snapshot with encryption proof in a decentralized way. By encouraging ecological participants and stakeholders to join the agreement, powerroom aims to build trust and provide demand insight.
What can powerroom do?
For most defi protocols, there are many flexible components, abstraction layers, and stakeholders, which are very complex. If the blockchain industry wants to develop sustainably, seriously and on a large scale, we must adopt verification based trust.
According to the design, the snapshot data of powerroom protocol is hot stored on IPFs and anchored on filecoin network. This makes it affordable and easy for nodes to store / retrieve data instead of using centralized services. As an extension, other people in the filecoin ecosystem can also use these datasets to build on them.
Recently, powerloom released a preview of the polymerket（ https://medium.com/powerloom/polymarket-audits-68ec7273ef8c ）And reinvented gitcoin funding audit
Simplification of blockchain operation and maintenance.
What is kotal?
Kotal( http://kotal.co/ ）It is an open source, multi client, cloud free, vendor bound blockchain kubernetes operator. It can easily deploy highly available self managed and self repairing blockchain infrastructure (network, node, storage cluster) on any cloud.
What can kotal do?
Blockchain operation and maintenance is very difficult, expensive and time-consuming, with a lot of costs and risks. Therefore, DAPP relies heavily on centralized services to integrate blockchain protocols. Kotal makes the operation and maintenance of blockchain simple, achieving faster development and sustainable decentralization.
With kotal, you can:
Deploying highly available blockchain networks and nodes
Join public networks such as Ethereum and bitcoin
Join rinkeby, ropsten and goerli test networks
Start your own validator or baking node
Create and join private alliance networks
Creating a distributed storage cluster
Be your own infera
