Today marks a really exciting day for Storj Labs. We launched the first beta of our V3 Storj software, and we simultaneously launched the beta for our Tardigrade Cloud Storage Service, which is (we expect) the first of many decentralized storage services built by many organizations using Storj software. This post discusses the very important qualification gateswe’ve established for each of our major milestones: Pioneer 1 (beta 1), Pioneer 2 (beta 2), and Voyager (production).

Every quarter, we hold a public town hall to give members of our community insights into the progress of the Storj project. There are many different groups that have an interest in Storj: storage node operators, open source contributors, investors, STORJ token holders, employees—and increasingly—developers and partners. We always try to do our best to help all of these different groups gain transparent insight into the progress at Storj Labs.

The STORJ token is an integral part of the Storj network. STORJ token provides an efficient and effective means to facilitate the transfer of value between those who contribute excess storage capacity and bandwidth to the network, and those who utilize that excess capacity for the storage and retrieval of data. Today, we’re pleased to publish our quarterly STORJ token balances and flows report. We produced the initial version of this document in November of 2018, and updated it with 2018 year end data for publication in conjunction with the town hall held on January 16, 2019, and with Q1 ‘19 data in conjunction with the town hall held on April 10, 2019.

A few months ago, I had the opportunity to attend a presentation by Storj Labs Cofounder Shawn Wilkinson at Coinbase’s headquarters in San Francisco. Shawn was presenting to Coinbase’s People of Color Employee Resource Group (ERG), which supports people of color in the blockchain and decentralization areas, both internally at Coinbase as well as externally within the broader industry. In his presentation Shawn shared a bit about the success Storj has seen, an overview of our V3 rebuild, background on our Open Source Partner Program, and how decentralized cloud storage platform has the ability to change technology for the better.
