The internet as we know it today is dominated by tech giants such as Google, Amazon and Microsoft, FaceBook who monopolize different avenues of the internet where they are market leaders and it has become a matter of grave concern for netizens. Such as you and me with their increasing dominance creating a security and privacy void with their continued manipulation of sensitive user data to increase their profits.

The World Wide Web was originally designed to be a safe space that connects people together and share ideas freely, no matter where they are across the globe, but as the internet evolved over the period of time, the greed of certain corporations meant that one cannot overlook the risks that come along.

What is the solution?

Blockchain has been gaining in popularity over the last decade mostly thanks to cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. It is a decentralized digital ledger where only you own the private keys to your data. This ensures that no one can snoop or manipulate your data for gain. One popular implementation of blockchain has been in decentralized cloud storage.

The centralized architecture of Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, AWS and likes etc where the data is stored in a single centralized server/service provider have complete control over your data. As the data is stored at a centralized location possibilities of data loss due to attacks and systems failures are pretty high.

In the case of a decentralized cloud such as StorX, the data is divided into multiple fragments and stored across autonomous storage nodes operated by individual operators across the world. Designed as the collection of autonomous storage networks, no single operator has complete access to your data. Decentralized cloud storage is a faster and more secure alternative as it implements blockchain so only you have access to your data.

StorX compared to centralized cloud services

Due to its decentralized architecture, StorX is not only faster compared to legacy centralized storage providers but also enables you to save up to 300% of cost compared to a centralized cloud. StorX also enables users with spare storage capacity to lease space and earn fabulous returns. Another solution is to use a Decentralized Privacy Network (DPN). The DPN is a distributed bandwidth sharing network that is decentralized and serverless. This means that data cannot be leaked, hacked or manipulated by any third party.

About StorX

StorX is a decentralized cloud storage network, Which empowers users to store their data securely on the cloud. Each file uploaded on StorX is split and encrypted into multiple fragments to autonomous storage nodes operated by individual operators across the world. Designed as the collection of autonomous storage networks, no individual operator has complete access to your data. StorX is not only faster compared to legacy centralized storage providers but also enables you to save up to 300% cost compared to a centralized cloud. StorX also enables users with spare storage capacity to lease space and earn fabulous returns. Register now at https://StorX.tech and contribute to building a secure internet.
