What is Storj ?
Storj is a cloud storage platform founded in 2014 as a decentralized alternative to the centralized cloud
storage that some companies like Amazon or Google had offered. Unlike the centralized platforms, on
Storj's decentralized platform, people share or rent the free spaces they have on their hard drives with
people who need somewhere to put their data. This storage can be used for video streaming or
