Datacoin FAQ

1. What is Datacoin?
Datacoin is both a reliable and decentralized data storage service and a currency to pay for this service.

2. Where my files are actually stored in Datacoin network?
Files are stored on local HDDs of all users participating in the Datacoin network. Each user has it's own full local copy of all Datacoin files.

3. Are my files encrypted in Datacoin?
No. You are responsible to encrypt your files before sending.

4. Is there any way to delete my data from Datacoin blockchain?
No. Once data goes into Datacoin blockchain there is no way to delete this data.

5. Why Datacoin doesn't handle file names and any other details about my files?
Datacoin daemon works with blobs only. This is because it must be a reliable software. Any additional metadata must be strictly verified and this code can lead to bugs. Bugs are bad. But no special rules are required for blobs except of size verification.

There is a upper level protocol (Datacoin envelope) that handles file name, files bigger than 128Kb, file updates and compression. You can follow Datacoin envelope development here: https://github.com/foo1inge/datacoin-browser

Datacoin envelope doesn't need any modification in Datacoin daemon and Qt wallet - JSON RPC connection is enough.
 
6. How much disk space does it take?
1Mb (max block size) * 60 minutes * 24 hours * 365 days = no more than 513Gb per 1 year

7. Is this storage free for storing data?
No. Currently fee is 0.05 DTC per 1Kb of data. This standard fee can be changed in future without hardfork.

8. Sender pays fee and who gets this fee?
All fee goes to miners i.e. fee is distributed between nodes supporting Datacoin network proportionally to their mining power.

Fee from fully loaded block is about 50DTC (block reward now is ~11DTC and it decreases).

9. Does the whole concept mean that it is tough to go for Android or IPhone client?
Mobile clients need light wallets in order to see balance and send transactions. Light wallet will interact to some web service instead of storing full blockchain locally.

10. People really need to store more than 513Gb of data per year in decentralized storage. Do you have any plans to increase storage space?
Datacoin is a root storage engine in the decentralized storage service. This storage is both reliable and expensive. I'm now working on concept of personal chains. Personal chains will start from root Datacoin blockchain and will be replicated to nodes by subscription (nodes can choose chains they subscribe to). Datacoin blockchain will handle only identification and some metadata for all personal chains.

Important notes:
- This (personal chains) is only on conceptual level now and will be clarified and prototyped in few months.
- This doesn't mean Datacoin hardfork. Personal chains will be constructed on top of Datacoin network.

11. What is current state of Datacoin project?
Datacoin network [reliable and expensive blob storage in blockchain] - up and running
Datacoin envelope [file storage in blockchain] - under development (Perl prototyping)
Personal chains [more data outside of blockchain] - on conceptual level

12. Who is working on Datacoin project?
oocook5u working alone at network for now. He didn't accepted yet anybody into development team but he plans to do this in the future in order to make process more sustainable. There is unofficial Datacoin team listed here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=349937.0
This team doesn't work with Datacoin network directly, but developing tools, application for the platform, supporting and promoting Datacoin.

13. What about coins per year, actual block reward and total number of coins?
Coins number is limited to 2 billions. Anyway, current block reward is near 10 DTC per block, what is equal to ~5M Datacoin per year, and this block reward is getting lower when difficulty increaseas. So this limit can be reached only after hundreds of years.

Yes, there are about 100 coins based on bitcoin, but Datacoin is the first one that does something interesting instead of just wasting energy and creating a pyramid scheme.

It is a new Datacoin get/send command helper!
http://krypte.net

I myself, will release a new file hosting (full management, list of files etc.), but it is of course not top priority.

On to other plans,
i am still trying to make a pool software, i am actually not very good with that stuff but i will try.
An online wallet and blockchain explorer will be released soon

I was inactive on this forum and apparently someone got my credentials and used my account in scams.
I have changed the password and I am sorry for any scam that occured.

Yes, krypte.net developer promised to create an announcement thread when he fixes some issues and adds some features to his project. Anyway, it's really great that different Datacoin tools are being released and created!

Although Datacoin (DTC) can be traded at bter.com, trade at cryptsy.com and other exchanges is necessary for wider adoption.

A bad question, but what happens when someone uploads childporn to the chain?
Any Datacoin user will have CP on his Computer?

Why is there no mining pool for DTC?
DTC has XPM algo, all XPM mining pools (ypool and beeeer) don't release their sources. So we need to create pool from scratch - it's not so fast process. Remember first weeks of XPM - the same situation, there were no pools.

Have you talked to ypool to include DTC?
Yes. Neither ypool nor beeeeer don't want to add DTC: ypool - for unknown reasons (jh00, its admin, just sait 'no'), and beeeer admin (xolokram) said that he has no time now for supporting one more coin.
But it's not a huge problem, we're working at that - not very quick, but moving in right direction.
