What is Storj?

The Storj network is a decentralised peer-to-peer data storage alternative to traditional file hosting companies such as Dropbox, and Storjcoin X was the first iteration of the cryptocurrency created by Storj Labs for use as payment in the Storj network. 

In 2017, Storj Labs migrated Storjcoin X to STORJ due to some limitations of the original token. STORJ is an ERC-20 token powered by Ethereum.

How does Storj work?

The Storj network works by linking people with excess data storage capacity with people who need more space. Users who have signed up to the network either earn STORJ by becoming Node Operators and offering up their spare hard drive capacity or they can buy STORJ and use it to pay for extra storage.
