I just saw this posted on reddit. Works exactly like storj. Apparently theyve kept it quiet, but it goes live june 1. Looks interesting.

    It does look interesting - How are things with Storj? I haven't had a chance to keep up and am quite in the dark.

    I love how fast and easy I was able to get mining going and start offering space everything is but how do you get some of their coin to be able to upload things?

    Tried out the application, looks very interesting but they've made some interesting choices like relying VERY HEAVILY on hub/spoke payment channels and so I had trouble testing it out because normal transactions have to wait on 30 minute block times. It also requires users have the application installed on their system in order to download files that are hosted on the network which IMO makes the service much less useful to me until someone builds that service layer on top.

    @shawn_j How far out are you from letting us host LTB network podcasts on Storj? This was a tease, lol.

    Storj is still going, but it's behind schedule. I'll try out sia when i get home.

    All they have to do is add a Bitcoin payment mechanism to BitTorrent and storj (and siacoin) will be out of business.

    I just tried it too, couldnt' find a help file or forums or anything. and the whitepaper doesn't get into the details about how it really works. mining was easy, you just add a few threads. but I can't get the hosting to work- I clicked "announce", and I assume that puts a bid on the blockchain. so someone else has to post an "ask" by uploading a file? do they specify how much SC they want to pay?

    I gotta see if there's a subreddit or something..
