Use Existing Hardware
Becoming a node operator doesn’t require extra hardware or power-hungry CPUs. All you need is a solid internet connection and enough hard drive space and bandwidth.
Be the Cloud
By becoming a node operator you’re storing data for actual customers, all while getting paid. Become the decentralized cloud and disrupt the cloud storage giants.
Better Than Mining
Mining bitcoin is expensive, requires a lot of extra power, is not that profitable, and is much more difficult than becoming a storage node operator.
How it Works
Check your specs and if you qualify we’ll send you an auth token—once you get your auth token, you'll read through our set up instructions and get started.
Once your node is set up, it will receive pieces of encrypted files. Later, you’ll share the file pieces when a client requests them and be compensated for the bandwidth used in the transfer.
Every month you’ll receive a payout in STORJ token for the storage and bandwidth you’ve provided on the network.
