What is Aleph.im
What Is Aleph.im (ALEPH)?
Aleph.im is an open-source crosschain network featuring decentralized database including file storage, computing, and a decentralized identity (DID) framework. Aleph.im’s core mission is to help decentralized apps and protocols strip off the centralized parts of their stack, achieving a fully decentralized architecture. You can think of aleph.im as a decentralized AWS or firebase. Aleph.im is focused on supercharging the DeFi ecosystem.
Who Is the Founder of Aleph.im?
Aleph.im was created in 2018 by Jonathan Schemoul, aka Moshe Malawach. Moshe is based in France and has been programming since childhood.
Prior to entering the blockchain space, Moshe developed enterprise software across finance, supply chain, and other major industries. He then became a key contributor in the NULS community, building the explorer and the Proof of Credit Mining (POCM) system among other things.
Moshe’s abilities to bring tangible business value using blockchain technology is what has made aleph.im what it is today.

Aleph.im is already compatible with many leading blockchain projects including Ethereum, Polkadot, Cosmos and BinanceChain. This enables any project building on these platforms to integrate with our decentralized database and file storage..
Finally, aleph.im implements a channel mechanism allowing sharding-- subnetworks with all the aleph.im network features. You can think of shards as dedicated cloud clusters.
How Are Transactions Managed?
Onchain transaction fees are free for users as long as web dapp teams pay for it, which is a similar business model as web2, where app owners pay cloud providers such as AWS. Onchain transactions are batched, so fees are minimal.
