Decentralized Storage Platforms
Hey hope it's cool if I post this here. This part of the forum seems a little underactive so hopefully this stimulates some discussion.
Has anyone here had problems with current centralized cloud storage platforms like AWS or Dropbox? Considering issues they have had with data breaches, and sensing the huge potential of blockchain technology for privacy, a number of companies, like FileCoin and Storj, are working on decentralized storage projects. I'm part of one of them too - we're https://www.pp.io/.
Decentralized storage platforms are based on P2P models where users host parts of your files on empty hard drive space, and blockchain's token mechanics in order to incentivize users. It's an innovative approach to cloud storage that removes a central authority while increasing privacy and security.
Anyway just here for some thoughts and opinions on the technology. There's definitely a lot of potential but it will take time for full implementation both commercially and privately.
