The Ceramic network¶
Ceramic is a decentralized network for composable data.¶
Ceramic makes building applications with composable Web3 data as easy as browsing a marketplace of data models, plugging them into your app, and storing, updating, and retrieving data from those models. When different applications reuse the same data models, their data is automatically interoperable. By decentralizing application databases, Ceramic makes data composable and reusable across all applications.
Try ComposeDB on Ceramic¶
ComposeDB is a decentralized graph database that is currently in developer preview. It is not suitable for mainnet applications until early 2023, however the developer preview is ready for you to design, build and test your application with advanced relations between data, GraphQL, and reusable data models. Learn more in this blog post or check out the developer getting started guide here.
Build applications with Ceramic¶
Frameworks provide a great way to get started quickly, while clients provide greater flexibility but require a lower-level understanding of how the network functions.

Operate the Ceramic network¶
Provide storage, compute, and bandwidth to the network by running a node.
Today there are no tokenized incentives for running a Ceramic node, but by running a node you can ensure the data for your app remains available while helping contribute to the network's decentralization.
