DataStax announced their exciting new service: Astra Block. This innovative tool is based on the Ethereum blockchain and will be available as part of our company’s no-code NoSQL database-as-a-service platform. With Astra Block, you can easily create Web3 applications that are secure and reliable!
Web3 is a revolutionary new form of the internet, where content and information can be registered on blockchains, tokenized, or managed and accessed through distributed networks. It offers an innovative decentralized way to store data securely in contrast to today’s centralized models. With Web3, users have more control over their data than ever!
The Ethereum-based Astra Block intelligent contracts are now fully integrated into the company’s esteemed DBaaS, Astra DB NoSQL database. This groundbreaking technology is built on Apache Cassandra and offers a breadth of new functionalities to users worldwide.
With Astra DB, developers have the chance to leverage enhanced data streaming from the Ethereum blockchain to develop and expand Web3 experiences. Possible use cases are plentiful – you can create applications that analyze any transaction in the blockchain history for insightful business intelligence, as DataStax confirms.
Blockchain adoption among enterprises has steadily grown in recent years. According to Gartner, at least a quarter of all businesses will use Web3 technology by 2025 for customer engagement purposes. Astra Block’s innovative offering allows users to decode and store data quickly using Cassandra Query Language (CQL) database queries, providing easy access for humans without compromising on accuracy or speed.
Astra Block can decode and store application data in a readable format, which is easily accessible through Cassandra Query Language (CQL) queries. Furthermore, applications created with Astra Block will benefit from DataStax’s change data capture (CDC) and streaming features. Last June, the company made its powerful Astra Streaming service publicly available to assist organizations in transforming into cloud-native entities while simultaneously optimizing their existing infrastructure setup.
Astra Block presents a unique opportunity to access 20GB of blockchain data, absolutely free! However, the paid tier will not only grant users the ability to clone and update the entire blockchain with new blocks added regularly – but it also comes in at an incredible pay-as-you-go rate. To ensure customer satisfaction, DataStax is continuously working on expanding Astra Block’s scope by adding support for other blockchains as well.
