Because blockchain has an element of digital storage to it, storage which can be well protected and distributed, there is a need for a solution that offers this as a service, and this is where Siacoin comes into play.

Siacoin sets out to allow any computer running it to rent out unused hard drive space to users looking to store files. It has been branded as an “AirBnB for hard drives, and takes on the idea of cloud storage, but through blockchain rather than cloud computing. Thus, rather than relying on centralized companies, like Amazon or Google, the trustless blockchain is available to manage the storage solutions.

Siacoin’s use of distributed storage is a novel one as the way in which data is stored, and secured, is by slicing files into tiny pieces, so only a small portion of each is stored on any one hard drive. The files are also encrypted, so network users can be confident their data is safe from unauthorized access.

The network holds an impressive 2 petabytes (2,256 terabytes) of space, with roughly 333 node operators actively securing the network.
