ETHOnline (Sept 2-28) - Build on, this September
There’s so many opportunities in web3 right now despite the bear market…the question is:
What will you be building?!
Feature previews & highlights
Brand new IPFS infrastructure (hehe yup, we upgraded it again)!
Here at Valist, we believe your time is worth everything. That’s why we work constantly to improve the performance, interoperability, and decentralization of every part of the stack, especially storage!
This latest iteration of the Valist IPFS infrastructure packs a serious punch. Not only is it likely one of the fastest IPFS experiences you’ll enjoy with solid peer to peer connections around the world, it speaks both the S3 storage API, and the native IPFS pinning spec! This means you can plug your local IPFS node into the Valist infrastructure as a pinning remote, no problem! Or, you can upload files and folders with just a POST call to the HTTP endpoint, easy peasy. Our SDK also makes it just one function call to writeJSON, writeFile, or writeFolder, and works in both Node.js and Browser environments!
And of course, everything is automatically archived to Filecoin for long-term storage!
How do we do this? 🤯
Expect a separate announcement soon with more details, but for now, enjoy the following enhancements, on us!
Project Sapphire is coming!
Get ready to game like you’ve never gamed before! Web3 gaming has been all money no fun for way too long, time to fix that up!
We’re gearing up Sapphire to be built and published in CI/CD, available to download on Valist very soon (just have to get through the web2 gatekeeper’s hoops like Apple and Microsoft first, but that’s what we have to do to bring web3 to the masses!)

App Stores vs Valist
If you are a developer, you know that development is only the first stage of the process; following development, there are other stages such as marketing, publishing, and so on. These phases are just as crucial as the development phase. Let’s focus on the publishing phase in this article.
