SmartFox is a pioneer in the world of blockchain-based decentralized cloud data storage solutions
SmartFox is a pioneer in the world of blockchain-based decentralized cloud data storage solutions. The project provides reliable storage of text information, media files, and websites. It also rewards users in exchange for sharing their disk space.
The main advantage of using Smartfox is that it’s trustless, which means data is stored without relying on a third party. Decentralization perfectly solves the problem of easily identifiable central points of attack of traditional cloud storage.
As the typical user has at least a few devices connected to the Internet, providing the ability to quickly access the updated data from any device is of an utmost importance. A decentralized blockchain based data cloud storage model is obviously the best solution to the problems of confidentiality, accessibility, and integrity. Being a distributed network of personal computers, it is trustless and has no central point of failure.
Benefits of blockchain data storage
A blockchain is a distributed database in which you can write down any data or transactions. It stores the information of the entire network, which in turn creates a decentralized, distributed, and independent from any single point space. Every network user supports its functioning, so it is very difficult for one person to hack or completely destroy it.
Another advantage is that transactions carried out in a blockchain cannot be changed or faked. A cryptocurrency-based blockchain allows creating a decentralized Internet while providing freedom and security.
- Decentralization and required redundancy: Centralized file storage provides data backup by distributing files to regional data centers, which are quite attractive to attack. Decentralized file storage distributes pieces of data among all network users, thereby eliminating a single point of failure.
- Absolute confidentiality: No third-party controls users’ data or can access it. Each node stores some encrypted pieces of user’s data, while the user is the only one manager of his key.
- Low storage cost: Decentralized cloud storage is much cheaper than any centralized one.
Main benefits of SmartFox services
The storage is absolutely private and confidential. All data is encrypted and no one except for the user who uploads information and also has a special cryptographic key, can access it.
Fast upload of files to the cloud storage
Due to its decentralized nature, the upload speed to SmartFox is limited only by the max. speed on the user’s end, which means the user can quickly upload confidential data to the cloud storage if necessary.
Profit for sharing free disk space
The use of SmartFox is not just safe, reliable and convenient, but also economically justified: every GB of your free disk space brings you good profits with absolutely zero risks.
Storage providers will be able to regulate the amount of free disk space and the price for 1MB, which will allow them to remain competitive and receive the desired profit. The same time storage renters will get a wide range of options and the ability to rent the disk space at the lowest price.
High security and reliability
Since all information is shared among the SmartFox network, there is no single data storage device by accessing which an attacker could restore the whole text or file. With SmartFox, data theft or fraud is technically impossible. Moreover, the failure of one or several nodes does not affect the availability of information and operation of the decentralized cloud storage.
Traffic is distributed over a number of channels, which makes tracing and blocking almost impossible. SmartFox provides the ability to store files of any content, including files that would be blocked by authorities if they were in free public access on a centralized resource.
The problem of blockchain storage and solution of SmartFox
The well-known blockchain bloat problem is that with the increase in the number of transactions, the number of records also increases, and it becomes very difficult to continue adding new records.
This problem can be solved by storing only a small amount of information about the storage transaction – metadata that contains the hash of the file and the location of the backup file copies.

Development of the project
The development of the masternode network up to 1000 mastenodes, which are a solid basis for the future development of SmartFox. The rapid development of the masternode network is ensured by the high profitability at the initial stage and aggressive promotion in social media, including bounty campaigns.
1000 masternodes provide sufficient redundancy necessary for the network stable operation. In other words, renters are insured against unreliable disk space providers. Stage II goes along with the release of the beta version of wallets with an inbuilt sharing (renting) option, which in fact allows all FOX holders use the cloud data storage technologies. At the same time, masternode owners receive some privileges and bonuses.
Steady development and expansion of the SmartFox platform functionality, including the ability to store media files and use the decentralized cloud hosting for websites with own DNS.
