Episode 16: Partly Cloudy, with a Chance of Ethereum

On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie, Dee and Dr. Petty sit down with Shawn Wilkinson of Storj. Storj is a decentralized cloud storage provider that was created back in 2014. Since its inception, Storj has been hard at work on creating “cloud farms” of user submitted disk storage, where individuals who “rent’ out their additional disk space can receive monetary incentives for supporting the network. Originally built on XCP (Counterparty), Storj now plans to make a migration away from the now abandoned project (XCP is platform created originally on the bitcoin blockchain), and move their token and service over to Ethereum, to leverage its smart contracting capabilities, and reduced fees.
