Overview: What is Storj (STORJ)?

Storj (STORJ) coin is the native cryptocurrency token of the Storj decentralized file storage platform.

Storj was created by Storj Labs, co-founded by Shawn Wilkinson and John Quinn in 2014.

The Storj platform runs on the Ethereum network, and STORJ is an Ethereum ERC-20 token. The Storj platform is also known as the Storj DCS (decentralized cloud storage).

 

What Makes Storj (STORJ) Coin Unique?

The Storj (STORJ) token serves as a means of exchange to buy and sell decentralized storage space on the Storj network.

Computer owners with unused hard drive space can run Storj software and rent their space to users requiring storage. This model encourages participation from a wide community, not just large data centers or corporations. This democratization of storage can lead to a more resilient and diverse network.

There are audits of the network through random file verification every hour where storage sellers and node operators send proof that they are still safely storing the file. When the proof is confirmed, the storage nodes receive their payment.

The Storj network is designed to optimize performance by storing data in geographically relevant locations, thereby reducing latency during data retrieval.

What Is Storj (STORJ) coin Used for?

The STORJ token is used as currency in the Storj decentralized storage network. Clients buy and use STORJ to pay for file storage. Storage sellers who operate storage nodes receive STORJ for providing space and bandwidth. STORJ is also an asset that is bought, sold, and traded.

 

How Does Storj (STORJ) Work?

The Storj platform has “Storage Nodes” operated by storage sellers who store data for a fee. There are “Uplinks,” which run on the purchasing client’s machine to upload files and retrieve data, as well as “Satellites” which coordinate traffic between nodes and uplinks. Satellites support the auditing and distribution payments of STORJ and find the 80 storage nodes required to store the encrypted data safely.

When clients purchase storage on the Storj platform, their files are encrypted and split into 80 pieces known as shards and distributed across 80 nodes. However, only 29 of the 80 pieces need to be retrieved to get the file, which offers protection if any storage nodes go offline.
