Storj is bringing cloud based storage to the Blockchain to make storing files cheaper, faster and more secure. They have secured almost $750,000 since going live on our Online Investment Platform and now have a small amount left for our qualifying investors…
Due to popular demand, Storj has offered the remainder of their SAFE agreement to qualifying investors on BnkToTheFuture before taking on their institutional Series ‘A’ round.
When Bitcoin invented the Blockchain it made it possible for you to own your own money and send it cheaper, faster and more securely than when using a bank. It also gave investors the opportunity to profit from the same opportunity that banks and governments have had for decades…the ability to benefit from the profits of newly created money.
Now Storj has taken that very same model and applied it to file storage. We all use services like Google Drive, Apple iCloud and Dropbox to store our files and we place a lot of trust in them to keep those files safe and secure. But what if we no longer had to rely on them?
Storj allows enterprise users to store their files encrypted across a decentralised network of computers rather than trusting one company to keep our files safe. This means they can be stored cheaper, faster and more securely as there is no central point of failure. It also means that anybody can rent out their spare hard drive space and get paid for contributing to the network.
