It has been almost a month since we posted our last development update, so strap in, this is a long one.

This code is for the functionality we’re building into the network for our Beacon and Pioneer releases.

When people first hear about how decentralized cloud storage works, it sounds like a joke. Common questions include: “How is it possible to store data on random computers around the world?” “That doesn’t sound secure…. Is it?!?” “Is this a real thing?” Let me tell you, it’s real and it’s spectacular!
