I had the chance of meeting a renowned photographer who clicks real-life people and also caters to some selected portfolios. This meeting was part of an exchange program, I was representing my college. He shared an incident when he ran out of storage space to store his private collection of photographs and was quite apprehensive of some firm alluding to his privacy. Consequently, he had to lighten up his kitty to buy some extra space from one of the reputed cloud storages. My case is stark opposite to his, as more than half of the RAM lies as it is in my CPU. I wish cloud storages could work like Uber and Airbnb and I could get paid out of hiring my idle space. Memority, a blockchain based platform for encrypted decentralized cloud storage, is one such attempt to break the monopoly of the few big names and let individual storage capacities be pooled together.
It aims to create a self-sufficient ecosystem and a collection of individual and specialized repositories from around the world.
The most unique feature of the system is that it keeps 10 file copies on independent storages all over the world at all times.
Files are secured and encrypted with a private key to which only the owner has the access and the data is visible only after decryption with the key.
It continuously checks and restores the multiple copies of a file by using a decentralized monitoring system.
It provides for Unique hash identifiers of data stored in a blockchain such that no copies can be harmed, forged or deleted.
The storage system is a combination of independent repositories of specialized hosting and also ordinary users.
The payments done in MMR tokens are also stored immutably on the blockchain.
They aim to develop their own blockchain with a multitude of applications to serve the purposes of different organizations such as government organizations, individuals, and businesses.
