The Public Onchain Database — or POD — is launching today to make working with metaverse data more easy and accessible. POD is a Web3 project that collaborates and manages all metaverse data (metadata) in a single interface for developers, builders and users.

As the Metaverse expands, so do challenges in working with data across multiple locations. For the Metaverse to scale and decentralized applications (DApps) to function, there needs to be a reliable third-party data collaboration platform.

POD meets those needs as the first comprehensive database for metadata. From collaboration tools to robots and automation, POD is creating a rich data ecosystem for metaverse and Web3 users.

The three pain points of metadata management

Any object in the Metaverse is essentially metadata. An address, identity, transaction, or NFT all comprise forms of metadata. 

Here are the three key metadata pain points that POD solves: 

Hard to find

On-chain data are scattered in contracts on different networks. It’s not yet possible for contracts to obtain all data from one single common environment. 

Hard to relate

Due to the non-relational storage, it’s hard to trace the relationship between two entities or associate entities with their metadata. 

Hard to utilize

Each network or application is unique in data transmission methodology. Thus, data from different sources have to be pre-processed before they can work in tandem.

Why we need a metadata database

To solve the problems of current blockchain data, POD was developed as a neutral third-party data middleware, providing key functionalities and developing the full potential of metadata.

Benefits for data providers:

  • Increase data searchability and conformity
  • Specify data relationships
  • Realize NFT composability and editability

Benefits for data consumers:

  • Quick access to data from various chains
  • View and retrieve data by categories 
  • Easy data collaboration

And these are just a few. With a robust feature set and benefits, POD will make working with metadata more streamlined and efficient for all Web3 metaverse stakeholders. 

The future

POD’s goal is to bring different parties together and establish a collaborative dialogue to inspire the decentralized community. Together, we can arrive at an agreed-upon data collaboration standard in an organic bottom-up manner. 

Part of POD’s vision is also to drive the establishment of consensus in metadata collaboration to become a critical part of Web3 data infrastructure. We’re unlocking the value of blockchain data and networks, propelling the Web3 data collaboration ecosystem to new heights.
