PERMANENT – ON-SITE OR REMOTE – FULL TIME
Arweave is a permanent information storage network, built on a new type of blockchain called a blockweave. We are working to solve the problem of the ‘memory hole’, as formulated by George Orwell in Nineteen Eighty-Four, by building the first data storage medium that truly never forgets. Arweave works by rewarding network participants for contributing hard disk space to the network, in a similar fashion to proof of work in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
