What Is Storj?
The Storj protocol is a decentralized cloud storage platform that allows users to rent out unused hard drive space for digital file storage. It offers zero-trust security and can be used for large file storage, streaming and backups. Storj runs on its own blockchain model, but for the interaction the user does not need to know about the blockchain at all.
Due to its decentralised mode, Storj storage and egress costs are very competitive compared to centralised cloud offerings such as from Amazon, Microsoft or Google.
