We’re then going to define what makes up the sector, what the end-users and markets care about, how is decentralization addressing these market needs, what is disruptive about the decentralization thesis, market sizing, and sector ranking, and an analysis of the top players on the Blockchain.

Cloud file storage platforms are transformative because instead of using a local computer storage to store files and photos which at times could take up a gigabyte of space, you use third-party sellers from Dropbox, Box…

How Blockchain-based platforms such as Ethereum, NEO, EOS, QTUM, and LISK are disrupting the cloud computing space.

This post covers research and key insights into how new decentralized computing platforms are disrupting traditional cloud computing providers with better security, pricing, and transparency. In order to fully understand the topic, we’ve recorded a webinar with notes & broken the whole topic into different parts such as :

  • Why the decentralized cloud computing space matters?
  • What makes up the sector & what the end-users and markets care about?
  • How is decentralization addressing these market needs?
  • What is disruptive about the decentralization thesis, market sizing and sector ranking, and analysis of the top players on the blockchain.
  • Finally, in conclusion…
