Saturn is a Web3 CDN in Filecoin’s retrieval market. On one side of the network, websites buy fast, low-cost content delivery. On the other side, Saturn node operators earn Filecoin by fulfilling requests.
Saturn is trustless, permissionless, and inclusive. Anyone can run Saturn software, contribute to the network, and earn Filecoin.
Content on Saturn is IPFS content-addressed. Every piece of content is immutable and every response verifiable.
Crypto-incentives unite, align, and grow the network. Node operators earn Filecoin for accelerating web content and websites get faster content delivery for less.
All work is open source and developed in the public for all humanity.
Websites use Saturn by adding a
Saturn nodes don't respond with files but instead IPLD CAR files. These CAR files are incrementally verified by Saturn's Service Worker, as they're received, to prevent abuse and allow for a trustless network.
Saturn's network is comprised of three node types:
With these, the network flow of a Saturn request is:
After a request is fulfilled -- completely or partially -- the website pays the network in Filecoin for fulfilling the retrieval. And every L1, L2, and SP node that participated in the retrieval is remunerated for their contribution in fulfilling that request.
Private test network of L1 nodes. Beat IPFS Gateway performance.
Open, public network of L1 nodes. Test network of L2 nodes.
Connect L1s to L2s and L2s to Storage Providers (SPs), end-to-end.
Adopt first network-wide Cryptoeconomics model.
