When you think about applications of Blockchain Technology, the first thing you would remember is bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies that have risen in popularity and value like the original cryptocurrency — Bitcoin which has grown from $0.0008 per token to an all-time high of $64829 since its inception in 2009. But it is easy to forget that cryptocurrencies are not the only innovations made possible by blockchain technology.

Amazon-owned streaming service Twitch has expanded its rules to include off-platform “misconduct” that breaks its rules and could result in a ban from the streaming service even when it doesn’t occur on their platform. This news comes as an increasing number of big tech companies increase their reach into various aspects of digital life and try to suppress freedom of speech as the guardians of free speech. This is why we need decentralized platforms such as StorX Network to protect our privacy and freedom of speech

Facebook has been hit by yet another data scandal. This time a user in a low-level hacking forum published the phone numbers and personal data of over 533 million Facebook users from 106 countries. Including records of 32 million users in the US, 11 million in the UK and 6 million in India. The information leaked contains Facebook IDs, phone numbers, locations, birthdays, bios and in some cases the email addresses of users.

Off-topic / How Does Decentralized Cloud Storage such as StorX Work?
« on: April 03, 2021, 08:09:54 PM »

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.


Watch the video attached below for an explanation of how decentralized cloud storage such as StorX works

Cloud Storage providers have always been at the center of controversy but for reasons that could’ve been prevented otherwise. May it be the Dropbox breach, the Cambridge Analytica scandal, or the iCloud hack of 2017, the centralized cloud has never been a safe custodian of your private data but we may have finally found the perfect solution - Decentralized Cloud Storage.


On Wednesday, 10th March 2021 a tragedy struck OVHcloud — the largest hosting provider in Europe and third largest in the world based on physical servers when a fire broke out in a room at the SBG-2 OVHcloud data center in Strasbourg, France.

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.




So, what is the solution? Find out in the article below

Off-topic / The answer to the big tech problem is decentralization.
« on: March 17, 2021, 01:43:20 PM »
The days of undemocratic internet restrictions, censorship and blocks that curtail free speech are long gone thanks to decentralized platforms such as StorX. On StorX, data is split into encrypted fragments and stored across various host nodes on a worldwide network of storage providers. This ensures that no organization has control over the data and rest assured you will have full security and privacy of your data since it is a 100% trustless system.

I am for one, really excited about decentralized social-media platforms. Are you?
