Happy holidays and happy New Year from the Storj family to yours! We are continuing to focus our efforts around the Explorer release, which is scheduled to be released in Q1 of 2019. We want to make sure all of our storage node operators are pleasantly surprised when they join the V3 network, so we have been enhancing the overall user experience quite a bit. Recent development accomplishments: We finished merging the majority of the databases into the master Satellite DB.

Today, we find ourselves in a rapidly evolving age where the internet plays a major role in our ability to communicate with one another and gather information. The internet now connects more than 3.2 billion people around the globe, which represents 55% of the global population. This number only continues to grow and it’s not hard to imagine that one day, everyone in the world will have consistent, regular internet access.

Today we’re going to learn about the Storj V3 auditing and repair systems! Auditing, oh man, I’m already falling asleep, right? Well please don’t! Yes it’s true that auditing does the sort of drudge work of the storage system, in that it’s a continuously running process, randomly trying to download little bytes of data, endlessly, forever. However, the repair system within our new V3 network steps in as auditing’s cooler, more wizardy sibling who saves the day by zapping jacked up data with its Reed-Solomon regeneration wand.

The recent release of our white paper was a huge milestone in communicating with the community, our customers, and our partners about the direction and status of development on the new network. The white paper defines our long-term vision for Storj and lays out the foundation for the concrete implementation of the network. While the white paper includes extensive information about the network we are building, it doesn’t give any indication about when development milestones will be achieved - which brings us to the announcement of our public roadmap.

Our public roadmap includes a series of alpha releases leading up to a beta release and ultimately, the production launch of our V3 network. The composition and sequence of the releases is designed to accelerate the launch of the production network with SLAs. This blog post provides some additional information about each of the most recent and upcoming releases.  Quick disclaimer - this document contains forward-looking statements about our product direction.

Instead of spending the week shopping for online holiday deals, we have been busy making huge amounts of progress on the V3 network. Our next major milestone is the Explorer release, which will allow storage nodes to start joining the V3 alpha network. Most of our efforts have been focused around building out features related to this. Recent development accomplishments: We added the ability for storage nodes to advertise a wallet and email address over Kademlia.
