With the tremendous support of our community,
Storj successfully raised $30MM in revenue during the token sale!
We are excited to announce that the STORJ token has officially been distributed!
You will need to set your wallet to watch the token contract.
Instructions vary by wallet. Additional info can be found in our FAQ.
Storj is a peer-to-peer network comprised of “farmers,” users who rent out their spare hard drive space and bandwidth, and "renters" who purchase space and bandwidth.
Storj is up to 10x faster and up to 50% less expensive than traditional datacenter-based cloud storage solutions. Storj is a platform, a token, and a suite of tools for developers looking to build better tools and applications.
If you purchased STORJ tokens using BTC as your payment, you were asked to supply an Ethereum wallet address. This Ethereum wallet address is where the tokens will be delivered.
If you purchased STORJ tokens using ETH as your payment, then the tokens will be delivered to the same Ethereum wallet address that was used to make the purchase. In other words, your payment address is also your receiving address.
We've partnered with Microsoft Azure and Heroku to offer Storj integrations with PaaS providers you already use.
We signed our first service agreement with a Fortune 500 company in 2017 and doubled our developer team.
Storj believes in maintaining a free and open source software model. Check out our Github.
We have over 20,000 users and almost 19,000 farmers on the Storj network, with steady growth each month in the last year.
We recently announced a migration of the Storj token, STORJ (formerly SJCX) to the Ethereum ERC20 standard from the Counterparty protocol on the Bitcoin blockchain. This move helps us reduce transaction fees for the Storj community while also increasing functionality and usability.
There are many benefits to using STORJ:
Bitcoin isn’t divisible or flexible enough to support the granularity needed for micropayments.
A separate token like STORJ provides a layer of protection from the volatility of larger markets.
Using STORJ helps us identify and fix problems at scale, paving the way for a larger, more stable network.
We pay for our community's hard work performing tasks like tier-one tech support and development with STORJ.
A network funded hub would allow for quick transactions, as well as keep transaction fees low for the users.
Storj Labs is dedicated to building long-lasting partnerships and supporting the broader [Ethereum] ecosystem.
Users can earn STORJ for sharing disk space, then use it as renters themselves, creating a positive feedback loop.
We plan to use the token in ways raw Bitcoin or Ether can’t. For example, the Storj-specific signaling described in SIP0002.
