If you are unfamiliar with Bitcoin agents I would take a look at these resources:


Anyways here is my rough mock-up of the index page. Just trying to solicit some feedback as a work this little project.

So how will this work?

If I'm a human being can I sell storage space to StorJ and get paid in proportionate amount when StorJ is ready to upgrade? If that is the case it could have as much space available as necessary to meet the demand simply by paying users to supply to meet the demand. And if anyone needs to store anything they could pay the price as well.

Seems to be very efficient and could easily put Dropbox and Mega out of business.

Well in this early stage you would probably just run one or more StorJ nodes, rather than sell space to StorJ. It would kinda work like Bitcoin mining. Bitcoin mining supports the network, and the miners get a percentage of the fees and new coins. For a StorJ node you would get paid the fees for hosting a file or file(s).

I doubt this would replace Dropbox or Megaupload anytime soon, but in its full implementation it would allow you to store your files for very very cheap. Although you are making me think maybe this should be a more of a desktop app. You can make Bitcoin by utilizing a GPU that otherwise might be idle, but instead utilizing your hard drive space that might be empty.
 
I mean look at the Dropbox model. They charge $99 a year for 100 GB of space. Lets just call it an even $1/GB. Which means if I charged Dropbox prices for a $100 Seagate Barracuda 2TB off Newegg that's fully loaded, I could get <$2,000 a year. That's a better reward that Bitcoin mining. Of course I'm omitting stuff like redundancy, but still there is a huge profit margin in there.

tldr; Back of the napkin calculations make this highly optimistic.

Proof of Storage right? I think this idea can work.

Basically Proof of Storage. Working on the concept and protocol, but basically the way you would verify this is with a challenge–response authentication.

Since this is ranked pretty high on the Google results for Storj. I would add that this project is currently in active development. See more information at Storj.io

Just turn it off or just the settings. Software will take care of the rest.
