30-in-30: First-week Recap
The Fluxmas spirit is settling in. The Flux ’30 in 30’ initiative is in full swing and so far seven awesome dApps have been deployed on the Flux network for all to enjoy. Not only are these dApps useful and fun, but they also demonstrate the power and utility of the Flux network. Read on for a recap of the first seven dApp launches.
The Flux ’30 in 30’ initiative is first of all about having fun and celebrating the Flux community. But it is also about showcasing the power and versatility of the Flux network by demonstrating what type of applications can be hosted on the network.
During December Flux will deploy 30(!) new decentralized applications on the Flux network in only 30 days. It’s the best Christmas calendar in blockchain, so be sure to follow us on Twitter @runonflux so you don’t miss a beat.
The Flux decentralized computational network has recently grown to more than 2300 nodes. By leveraging blockchain technology the Flux network delivers resilient, secure, and truly decentralized infrastructure to host Web 3.0. Best of all, Flux is a community-driven open-source project that is backed by a dedicated and highly skilled community.
Any hardened dockerized image can be globally deployed on the network and harness the power of Flux with more than 11,000 CPU cores, 35 terabytes of Ram, and 900 terabytes of storage space.
Now let’s have a look at the first seven dApps that have joined the Flux network during the ’30 in 30’.
Day 1: Minecraft Bedrock edition server — a gaming dApp.
With the recent addition of UDP support on FluxOS, a wealth of new opportunities has emerged. What better way to start ’30 in 30’ than by showcasing a dApp that requires UDP and at the same time provides something fun for the community.
Our first dApp deployment is Minecraft Bedrock Servers. This highly accessible version of Minecraft can be played on Windows/Xbox/Switch/Playstation/iOS/Android systems. Go to https://home.runonflux.io/apps/globalapps to grab an IP, use server port 31906, and start playing!
So start building your blocks on the blockchain (inception?) Pretty cool, huh.
Day 2: PrivateBin — a productivity dApp.
As a pioneer of Web 3.0, privacy and being the custodian of your own data is something very important to Flux. Our second dApp is a privacy-focused one that keeps your data out of the hands of corporate 3rd parties.
For our second dApp deployment, we are introducing PrivateBin. PrivateBin is a minimalist, open-source online Pastebin, where the server has zero knowledge of the pasted data. Data is fully encrypted and decrypted in the browser using AES-256.
It’s live at: https://privatebin.app.runonflux.io/
Day 3: Ownscast — a media streaming dApp.
One of the issues with the current centralized internet is the ability of large corporate entities to ‘deplatform’ users that are unwanted on their platforms. Unfortunately, cases of content creators being de-platformed for political or other reasons are on the rise. This is why we need Web 3.0, so the users of the Internet can assume stewardship of the internet, rather than it being in the hands of corporate or government actors.
Web 3.0 needs decentralized applications for content creators that will protect them against de-platforming and other centralized censorship. Here is one, Owncast hosted on Flux!
Owncast is an open-source, self-hosted, decentralized, single-user live video streaming and chat server for running your own live streams similar in style to the large mainstream options. It offers complete ownership over your content, interface, moderation, and audience.
Learn more about Ownscast here: https://owncast.online/
It’s live on Flux here: https://owncast.app.runonflux.io/
P.S.: This was deployed on FLux using these system specs, 1 CPU vCore, 2000 MB RAM, and 10 GB of SSD storage. The total cost of deployment for 1 month was 1 Flux.
Day 4: SyncTube — a media streaming dApp
Another day, another great decentralized media/streaming application running on Flux.
Welcome to SyncTube! Immerse yourself in the new way of sharing and watching videos on Web 3.0. SyncTube allows shared viewing of online videos with friends. Manage permissions and get deep in the banter. Watch your favorite videos live with your friends with SyncTube on Flux.
The dApp can be accessed here: https://synctube.app.runonflux.io/
Day 5: Teamspeak — a communications dApp.
If you’re someone who’s been gaming for a long time, then you will probably know the value of having your very own Teamspeak server. A Teamspeak server is a great asset for any community, gaming or otherwise.
Teamspeak is a voice-over IP system that gives you complete control, it offers military-grade security, ultra-low latency, and 3D surround sound as default. With TeamSpeak running on Flux there are no centralized servers and no harvesting of personal data. Your chat, your data, your choice.
To try out the Teamspeak server, go to the Teamspeak website and download the Teamspeak client. Open Teamspeak hit connections and enter one of the Teamspeak server IPs found on https://home.runonflux.io/apps/globalapps.
Day 6: Valheim game server — a gaming dApp.
And now for something fun and challenging. Time for you and your friends to prove your worth to the Gods on the Flux Valheim servers!
Valheim is a brutal exploration and survival game for 1–10 players set in a procedurally-generated purgatory inspired by Viking culture. Battle, build, and conquer your way to a saga worthy of Odin’s patronage! This is a very popular Steam game and we’re happy to provide some servers for the Flux community.
Grab your axe and shield and gather a server IP from the Flux global apps list on https://home.runonflux.io/apps/globalapps. In the game client use server port 39870 to connect. The server passwords are: runonflux
See you in Valhalla!
Day 7: Terraria game server — a gaming dApp.
Finishing up the first week of 30 in 30 is another fun gaming server, Terraria!
Do you want to play with your friends but don’t have a server? Well boys and girls, now you can have one running on Flux! Terraria is a wildly popular game and we are happy to share some servers with the Flux community.
Flux is a survival and building game with lots of menacing monsters and bosses to fight. Dig, fight, explore and build with your friends. Nothing is impossible in this action-packed and fun-filled adventure game.
Find a server IP from the Flux global apps list on https://home.runonflux.io/apps/globalapps. In the game client use server port 33333 to connect and off you go.
The bosses await. Can you beat them or your own, or will you bring your crew?
You can find most of the new dapps under ‘global apps’ on the Flux dashboard, so be sure to check that out. Also, in about a week you’ll find the next weekly recap right here on the official Flux Medium.
As always you can find more information about the best infrastructure available for Web 3.0 on the Flux website.
